Handsomeness in a Box, for 44% Off

We’ve hand-selected the finest shaving products Nickel has to offer—and we’re giving them to you for 44% off. Never before in history has such a collection of luxurious grooming material been assembled in one place. (Well, outside of Tom Selleck’s medicine cabinet...)

Pork Rinds After Midnight
NIGHT FOODS

Pork Rinds After Midnight

Tequila is a little like bungee jumping. Great while going down, painful without something to cushion the fall. Thus, Lolita has decided to offer up late-night fare like slow-roasted pork belly and kosher hot dogs till 1am. And if there’s one time that’s the best to get hot dogs, it’s 1am.

Killer Views with Fisherman’s Stew
TOTALLY LEGAL

Killer Views with Fisherman’s Stew

You were just saying: “I love me some Portuguese Fisherman’s Stew, but I really want it overlooking Boston Harbor.” Well, now that Legal Sea Foods has opened its new harborside spot, you can get that and stunning views of the water with your beers and baked scrod. No, it won’t make it taste “fishier.”

Snacking for $5 After Work at Pops
HEY POPS

Snacking for $5 After Work at Pops

There are few things better than getting out of work. One of them: landing post-work bar bites like stuffed mushrooms with braised short rib and daily-changing flatbread pizzas for $5, now up for grabs at Pops. Think of it as a(nother) reason to take off early.

Available now, Mon-Thu, 5-6:30pm, Pops, 560 Tremont St, 617-695-1250

Friday
Photo Booth-ing and 250 Wines
UNQUIET RIOT

Photo Booth-ing and 250 Wines

Something about this week has you craving two things: a place to sample over 250 wines from 90+ cellars, a DJ, food and a photo booth to document the good times. (Okay, so that’s four things.) Good news: all of the above are available at the Wine Riot this weekend, which kicks off Friday.

Saturday
Minibar Patio-ing, with New Cocktails
MINI BOOZING

Minibar Patio-ing, with New Cocktails

You’ve been cooped up long enough. So the time is right to start spending your weekend nights lounging hard with new Ox-Tail cocktails (Oxley Gin, St. Germain, rosemary, lemon and grapefruit) and not-new-but-still-reliable Mini Kobe Beef Burgers out on Minibar’s patio, which is now open for the season till 1am.

Now open, daily, 5pm-1am, Minibar, 51 Huntington Ave, 617-424-8500
