The Derby Entrepreneurship Center: Bringing innovation to Tufts

Entrepreneurship. For many, the word prompts an ominous connotation. An image comes to mind of tense individuals traversing a seemingly endless pathway to the “Shark Tank,” flanked on both sides by creatures of the deep blue sea. The entrepreneurs are then placed in front of five vicious, ready-to-bite veterans of the business world who then judge their company down to its barest bones.

Munching with Max: Coffee

Something terrible happened over spring break. No, I didn’t fall off a zipline exploring the jungles of Costa Rica. I — it’s embarrassing for me to say this — had a latte. Twice (insert shocked emoji). To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi’s words, I’d become the very thing I swore to destroy. After years of decrying those highfalutin beverages with endless varieties of milk and flavored syrup, I not only tried but enjoyed two swanky coffees. So, in breaking with my usual hot coffee and hazelnut creamer, I thought I’d take my primed palate back to Medford and sample Tufts’ coolest caffeinated creations.

Munching with Max: Boston bites

Since 1630, Boston has stood strong. Many, from the British Redcoats to the Los Angeles Lakers, have tried and failed to conquer this great city. However, it has taken until 2024, some 394 years, for Boston to meet its greatest foe — Max Druckman. Yes, the cuisine czar, master muncher, yours truly, has finally taken his taste buds to the streets of the “City Upon a Hill.”

Munching with Max: Kindlevan Café

In the words of Eminem, “Guess who’s back, back again?” Spoiler alert, it’s me. I’m back and hungrier than ever. So, this column is back too, allowing me to rant and rave about my eats at Tufts.
