Gratis Beef Tartare at Forum

Gratis Beef Tartare at Forum

Needed after work: a stiff drink, some friends, maybe a bite to eat. Good news: every weekday at Forum, you and at least nine friends can land gratis apps like beef tartare and sweet potato ravioli for two hours. It’s basically your new reason to go to work.

Your Christmas Tree. Delivered.

Your Christmas Tree. Delivered.

Outsourcing your holiday prep work: you loved it last year. And considering your holiday-decorations stance remains firmly in the “let someone else do it” camp, you’ll be pleased that Dash Boston is back, and stocked with twice the inventory of trees, wreaths and lights. Nobody needs to go full Griswold.

Drinking Scotch with a Whiskey Savant

Drinking Scotch with a Whiskey Savant

You’re a scotch master, sure, but even a master must brush up on his scotch-savoring methods. At BOKX 109 tomorrow, you’ll nosh on gratis apps and smoke a cigar as the scotch master for Glenfiddich guides you through 12-, 15-, 18- and 21-year-old scotches. Try not to chug.

Like The Nutcracker. But Sexier.

Like <em>The Nutcracker</em>. But Sexier.

Yes, it’s that time of year again. No, not for glad tidings and holiday cheer. But rather: your chance to see scantily clad women perform burlesque Tchaikovsky with The Slutcracker, with performances kicking off this Friday in Somerville. Ah, the holidays.

Dress Like Nucky. Win Prizes.

Dress Like Nucky. Win Prizes.

This Monday is a special day—when the 18th Amendment was repealed and booze was legal again. Celebrate it at the Bukowski party in Inman Square with Prohibition-y drinks (Old Fashioneds, Brooklyn Lagers) and shirts for the best era-correct ensembles. The time for your bowler hat is now.

Dec 5, 7pm-1am, cash bar, Bukowski Tavern, 1281 Cambridge St, Cambridge, 617-497-7077
