Extended Restaurant Week at Asana

Ends August 31, Asana, 776 Boylston St, 617-535-888, see what's for dinner here

Last Flaming Lips Show of the Summer

Seeing the Flaming Lips live has been described as Christmas, Halloween and your birthday rolled into one.

Monday
Cocktail Cupcake Happy Hour
HAPPY FLOUR

Cocktail Cupcake Happy Hour

Counter the sourness a Monday brings with some sweets, as Kickass Cupcakes of Somerville dishes out cocktail-themed goodies for two hours on Monday. Mudslides, Lemon Drops and Peach Daiquiris are on the menu, not to mention on the house. Should you be at the bar later, don't expect the same treatment.

Tuesday
New Burger Bar Menu at Fleming's
PRIME TIME
