Pretty Things Beer Tasting

The first week back at work for 2010 is just about over, and if you stop by Bauer Wine on Newbury tonight you'll be able to score free hooch to mark the occasion. Local ale project Pretty Things and its brewer will be hosting a two-hour tasting of their Westport-brewed suds, including their latest: a seasonal, seven-percent, export-strength stout.

Boston Blazers Season Opener

If you've ever been curious about the Blazers, Boston's very own professional lacrosse team, this weekend might be a good time to check them out. Their season opens Saturday night at the TD Garden…offering you the cheapest way to get in to see something live at the TD Garden.

A Nice, Thorough Detox at Rocca

It's been an endless succession of drinking for you lately. (Ah, the holidays.) Fortunately, Rocca is helping you get your body right again with a special raw food menu. Their cleansing three-course prix fixe includes Zucchini Spaghetti and Beet Ravioli, as well as detox elixirs made with freshly puréed fruits and veggies. We're looking out for you here.

$20.10, January, Rocca, 500 Harrison Ave, 617-451-5151, menu here

Prime Rib Sundays at Fleming's
PRIME TIME

Prime Rib Sundays at Fleming's

As soon as your body is ready for red meat again, Fleming's has a special prix fixe every Sunday in January that we think you might appreciate. They'll start you off with salad, then serve you 12 ounces of prime rib with three sauces and a side of your choice, then finish things off with dessert. And if you plan on hitting their wine list pretty hard, they'll even send a Mercedes SUV over to pick you up.

$29.95, 4-9pm, Sundays in January, 217 Stuart St, 617-512-5311, RSVP here

The Beagle Throws a Beer Dinner

Brookline's greatest watering hole named after a bar in Three's Company is starting off 2010 with an inaugural beer dinner. Five courses (think cheddar soup, Maine shrimp and chorizo stew) will be paired with a wide spectrum of Berkshire suds—everything from a coffeehouse porter to American pale ales—and Mr. Roper will be none the wiser.

$50, 6:30pm, Jan 11, Regal Beagle, 308 Harvard St, RSVP at 617-739-5151
