The house that Budweiser built: A home that’s sided with tens of thousands of flattened beer cans has been deemed a landmark, and a nonprofit art center is devoted to its stewardship (Page A2).
The art center estimates the home’s creator drank a six-pack of cheap canned beer daily for 20 years in order to collect enough material to cover the walls. Move over, van Gogh: This is suffering for one’s art.
Candyland: Billionaire Warren Buffet is auctioning off an all-you-eat tour of a See’s Candy factory to benefit an education nonprofit (Business Briefly, Page A7).

C’mere, you: Famously profane celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is scheduled to return to Everett on Wednesday to revisit Prohibition Gastropub, the Hewitt Avenue eatery he remade in December 2012 for his “Kitchen Nightmares” TV show (above).
