The Boynton Restaurant and Spirits
Tuesday, December 11th. 5:30-8:30 pm
Is it really naughty to indulge in a five course meal, beer and additional cheeses and fruits? We say yes! While it doesn't have the party appeal of other events, this dinner, presented by The Boynton and one of Massachusetts' finest breweries, gives you the chance to try some fine brews, and a wide variety of food inspired by it. Let's call it the naughty event you can bring your in-laws to.
End of the World Party
Friday, December 21st.
While it may not exactly be holiday themed, the End of the World, according to the Mayan Calendar, is coming up in the next few weeks. So, what better way to ring in the end of days than with some beers and great bar games at Jillian's. As an added bonus, DJ Bobby J will be spinning and heating up the dance floor.
Wednesday, December 19th. Noon.
Mechanics Hall has long been known for its impeccable acoustics, so you know there is no better place to take in holiday music. Sit back and listen to all your holiday favorites played on the Hall's famous Hook Organ, located in the Great Hall.
