Wahlburgers goes online

Haven’t been to Wahlburgers, the burger joint opened by Ed St. Croix and the brothers Wahlberg in Hingham, yet? The restaurant - which, by the way, also offers turkey, tuna, and veggie patties - has just opened an online store. (We only know because Donnie Wahlberg tweeted about it.) We paid a visit and found the inventory to be a lot thinner than the burgers. For now, you can only buy a grey hoodie with the Wahlburgers logo ($44.95) and a ballcap with the logo ($24.95.) Not sure what we were expecting - an old-school New Kids on the Block lunchbox? The prosthesis Mark Wahlberg wore in “Boogie Nights’’? . . . Mark, who plays a tough guy in his new movie “Contraband,’’ sounds like a softie in the new GQ. He says young actors should work hard, be disciplined, and, above all else, don’t whine about the paparazzi. “You just hope that people realize they’re very fortunate to be in that position and not to take that for granted. . . . It all comes with the territory. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. I don’t wanna hear nobody complain that they’re getting paid all this money and people won’t leave them alone. It’s part of it.’’
