365 Things to Do in Boston - New Tips Daily

5 Great Outdoor Bars in Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, May 11, 2015

The warm weather is here (to stay - fingers crossed)! Enjoy the sunshine at one of these awesome places around Boston:

1. Belly Wine Bar | Kendall Square

"Not only can you now enjoy their whole-animal "Arm + A Leg" or fried-chicken dinners on the canopy'd brick patio, but they've also unveiled a Summertime-fun, tiki-styled daiquiri stand serving Plantation rums on Wednesday and Thursday nights."

2. Society On High | Financial District

"The latest venture from the chef/owner behind Sorriso and the Leather District's Les Zygomates, Society on High's a 110-seat, breakfast-thru-dinner FiDi bistro rocking local fare, late-night libations, and a huge, soon-to-open, palm tree-laden patio billed as a little bit of "Miami right here in downtown Boston"."

3. Barcelona Wine Bar | Brookline

"Pretend you're dining on Las Ramblas and not on Beacon St (not that there's anything wrong with Beacon St) as you take down tasty tapas and sangria on what's billed as Brookline's biggest patio."

4. Rooftop at the Revere | Theatre District

"Billed as an "urban oasis and chic lounge" on the Revere Hotel's seventh-floor pool deck, this much-needed rooftop space boasts scenic city views, rentable cabanas, and a nine-seat bar, not to mention imposing flower pots and a small-bites menu complete with lobster roll sliders."

5. The Sinclair | Harvard Square

"Nestled atop a sun-soaked roofdeck that's overlooked by jealous desk jockeys trapped in their offices, this outdoor oasis tucked away from the masses offers sunset views and shaded high tops, not to mention tasty 'tails like the Kentucky Luau (bourbon, pineapple-cinnamon gomme, Peychaud's/Angostura bitters) to be enjoyed before the big Gold Panda show."

Where's Waldo? Bar Crawl In Boston

Posted by Hillary Waldron on Sun, Jan 05, 2014

waldoThe Where's Waldo Bar Crawl will tour the Faneuil Hall and Financial District on Saturday, January 11th!

Costumes are mandatory for this event and tickets are selling out fast! The ticket for this event will include discounted drinks at each bar, drink koozie, portable flask, lip balm and more! 

Tickets for this event are nonrefundable and proceedes from this event benefit the Jumpstart charity.  Please click here for more information on this event and ticketing availability. 

Where's Waldo is a series of children's books created by British illustrator Martin Handford. His "distinctive red-and-white-striped shirt, bobble hat, and glasses make him slightly easier to recognise, but many illustrations contain 'red herrings' involving deceptive use of red-and-white striped objects. The books have also inspired a TV show, comic strip and a series of video games.'"

#328 Dueling Piano Bar: Howl At The Moon

Posted by Tara Peterson on Mon, Mar 21, 2011


Howl at the Moon's piano players take the stage two at a time. The entertainers play for one hour and then yield the stage to two new players. At the changeover, all four piano players stay on stage for what is known as a "four-way."The four-way occurs at the end of each hour and lasts for two to three songs. This hourly encore allows the pianoplayers to incorporate additional instruments (drums, guitar, and saxophone) into the performance. The four-wayraises the energy of the room and provides a defined transition between the dueling piano show shifts.

Additionally, during every hour the Howl at the Moon entertainers engage in "Showtime." During this act, all Howl service employees join in and lead the audience through a choreographed routine to animated versions of popular tunes that include nostalgic TV shows and commercial jingles. The audience participation approaches 100% during Showtime and is enhanced by the high energy level of the live music.

Where: 184 High St | (between Batterymarch St & Leman Pl) | Financial District
When: Best Nights to go: Fri, Thu, Sat
Hours Are: 4:00pm - 2:00am

#274 Tour the Boston Opera House

Posted by Tara Peterson on Tue, Jan 25, 2011

Bos OperaH Audit WhitneyCoxGo and tour the Boston Opera House. I've seen a few shows there, and it is amazing and beautiful.

See the recent restoration that brought beauty and elegance back to this century-old theatre. The Boston Opera House is among nation's finest in opulence and quality of detailing. It is the only surviving work in Boston by distinguished American theater architect, Thomas Lamb.

The guided tour at the Boston Opera House is a wonderful educational opportunity for older children and young adults. The tour encompasses historical and architectural highlights of the building, including the grand lobby areas, majestic auditorium and backstage space (when possible).

Please note, when an event is in progress there may be limited access to certain areas of the theatre. We recommend that you wear comfortable shoes for walking. For more information contact Maggie Doyle at MDoyle@bohvllc.com. Special arrangements can be made for Groups of 10 or more. Tour groups are charged $15 per person.

boston balletThe "Kingdom of the Shades" scene, where dancers float across the stage in ghostly, duplicating single file, is one of the great scenes in all of classical dance. It returns in former Paris Opera Ballet star Florence Clerc's staging of Marius Petipa's 1877 Orientalist fantasy about the love life of an Indian temple dancer.
