Madison's Om Boys -- Adrian Reif and Matt D'Amour -- pair their peanut butter, Yumbutter, with other flavors, but maybe more importantly, with a side of idealism.

The Dec. 12 meeting of Madison's Vending Oversight Committee skipped ahead quickly to agenda item 5 in consideration of the handful of people who'd come to speak on the topic: "Late Night Vending Status Quo and possible recommendations for change."

Bassett (formerly home to the Copper Gable Cafe), has given way to JD's, a brick-and-mortar version of the well-known late-night food cart at State and Broom. >More
