The restaurant at the epicenter of the Boston Marathon bombings is reopening. The second of the two pressure cooker bombs that went off at the marathon's finish line on April 15 exploded outside the Forum restaurant, which reopens today for a charity event and will be open to the public tomorrow. It is the last of the Boylston Street businesses damaged in the explosions to reopen.

Still, owner Euz Azevedo says he's nervous. He knows the restaurant is part of history but hopes he's made enough changes to erase bad memories. Forum employees were widely praised for helping blast victims. (More Boston Marathon bombing stories.)
