Seth Rogen, 11 days ago: I hope North Korea won't screw up 'The Interview's' release

Free beer and popcorn — I must admit, that’s what lured me out on a recent rainy evening in Cambridge to see Seth Rogen and a screening of "The Interview."

One day before the Sony Pictures hack, Rogen presided over a Harvard event on the intersection of humor and politics. He joked about the initial response from North Korea when the trailer came out and expressed hope the release would occur without incident. "I would hope they would have better things to do,'' he said.

Prostitutes want Tunisia's red light districts to get back in business

Just a few streets away from the blue-doored houses of Sousse’s old town, one alley stands derelict and abandoned. Patches of wild grass have grown in amid the trash and rubble. Graffiti painted on the walls reads “Go away.”

The message was directed at Rathia, and the 90 or so other women working that alley.

“We literally had to run for our lives,” says Rathia, as she remembers the day her neighborhood, and business, went up in flames. “They came here and they just torched the places. We had to run out or we would have been burnt.”

Let's discuss & debate Cincinnati Magazine's Best of the City 2014 selections

The December issue of Cincinnati Magazine includes the editor's’ list of the Best of the City for 2014. From pony keg to olive bar, mountain bike trail to lawnmower repair, rainy day fishing spot to deli-made dip, the list covers food, the arts, exercise, shopping and just downright fun and unusual things you can find in our fair city. You might agree or disagree with some of their picks, and chances are you probably never gave a thought to some of their categories (best source for Japanese office supplies?), but you have to give them credit for doing the legwork, scouring our town to come up with what they consider the very best in Cincinnati. Here to share some of the things and places they say are the best, and how they went about finding them, are Cincinnati Magazine Deputy Editor Amanda Boyd Walters, Senior Editor RJ Smith, and Digital Media Editor Amy Brownlee.

What do you consider “The Best” in Cincinnati?
