Eat:
Breakfast is back.  Beginning September 7th, the Seapoint  (367 East Eighth) brings back their popular breakfast from 10a-1pm.   From Irish breakfast to a breakfast burrito, the Seapoint serves up your favorites.  Their mile-high Bloody Marys and tasty Mimosas are worth a try too.  Stick around for the game later.

Last call for the Quencher Tavern! The legendary Quencher Tavern (170 I Street)  will close its doors in November.  Whether it’s your hundredth time in the Q or your first time, stop by and have a drink this weekend.  It’s one of our favorite old school Southie bars and the Quencher will be missed!

Shop:
Ku De Ta is ushering in fall with lots of new clothing an accessories – not to mention their amazing denim section.  But as fall enters the scene, Ku De Ta says good-bye to summer with a 25% off sale on maxi-dresses.  Stylists tip: Just because fall is here doesn’t mean you have to put away your maxis – pair it with a denim or leather jacket.  Or even wear it with an oversized slouchy sweater for that neo-grunge look that’s big this season.
