why is it that when I click on Restaurants only the boston boards come up?
Can you copy and paste the URL into a reply here for the board you are on when you see this tab called "restaurants" that takes you to the Boston board? That way maybe it will become clearer what is going on for you...
You actually don't need to clear your cookies, if you don't want to. All you need to do is enter a location when you click on RESTAURANTS so it doesn't use the location you've last looked at as the default. For example, if you want to look at restaurants in California, just enter CA as the location (after the "IN") and it will show you restaurants in California.
