Independence Day is just around the corner here in the U.S., and we thought "you know who doesn't get nearly the recognition she deserves compared to other Founders? Betsy Ross." So with that in mind, we did a little digging and discovered what an important role this O.G. #GirlBoss and all-around #NastyWoman played in the establishment of our country. Check out some cool facts about Ms. Ross below! 1. Betsy was the 8th of SEVENTEEN children! However, "only" nine of them survived childhood. 2.

...we adore mac & cheese here at Boredwalk HQ! We know, we know — hardly a rebellious claim. But when it comes to our (many, many) go-to comfort foods, macaroni & cheese is #1 with a bullet. Why? • Carby & starchy? Check! • Gooey & creamy? Check! • Suitable for vegans & omnivores alike (with some slight modifications, of course)? Check! • Supremely adaptable, with an ability to modify endlessly with a mere dash, pinch, or chop? Check! And lest you think that mac & cheese is a modern creation with shallow roots in the mid-20th century, check out...

In addition to Memorial Day's remembrance of U.S. service men and women who have fallen in the line of duty, it also has historically marked an unofficial start to summer in the United States. To that end, we've crafted a Spotify playlist of tunes that make us think about warmer weather and everything that goes along with it — driving with the windows rolled down, cookouts, beach trips, and comfy clothes. Check it out!   It was extremely difficult to pare this down to fifteen tracks, but we tried our best! A few notes on the selections: • I first learned...
