It’s finally here, the restaurant opening we’ve all been waiting for! If you’re anything like us, you’ve been peering in the windows every time your bus passes by Broadway Station. You’ve heard right, folks–Worden Hall is open for business on Thursday, August 27th! With roots tying to the historic Worden Hotel in Saratoga Springs, NY, Worden Hall will emulate the welcoming, local gathering place vibe that the landmark hotel fostered. With a show-stopping 26-seat bar defined by its penny-topped surface (yes, that’s right, the bar top is completely covered in shiny pennies—that’s over 12,000 pennies to be precise) and approachable menu, we think Worden Hall has everything it takes to become the next Southie hotspot. From the founders of Five Horses Tavern in the South End, Worden Hall places an emphasis on quality, no-fuss fanfare such as the perfect deep dish pizza and a juicy double-stack burger, with an open kitchen, so patrons can see their food being cooked right in front of their very eyes. Bon appetit, Southie—we hope to see you there!
That’s a knockout! Kick your way to a beach ready bod for the last few weeks of summer this Thursday, August 27th at 7:15 pm at The Club by George Foreman. What’s better than sweating off a stressful workday in an upbeat, fast-paced environment? Doing it for charity, of course! Join Eliza Shirazi from Kick It by Eliza for a class to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Eliza Shirazi represents a fitness brand defined by music-central, dance-inspired classes and is best known for her kick-a-thons to raise funds in support of various charities. Tickets are $10 with the option of purchasing $5 or $20 worth of raffle tickets that can get you goodies like tickets to Improv Asylum in the North End, a gift card to City Sports, and much more. Sign up here before the class sells out!
Get up and dance! This Friday night, August 28th, from 6:30-9:30pm, we’ll be enjoying the ocean breeze in our hair while we sway to the thumping beats of dance floor-ready tracks from Kingdom. If you haven’t checked out the ICA in the Seaport District (i.e. the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston), make sure you take in some of their summer series concerts before the season comes to a close! Tickets to Wavelengths concert series events are $20 for non-ICA members, and the performance calendar is chalk-full with artists representing all music genres under the sun. This week, Kingdom will be hitting the scenic stage with original and remix numbers that blend sounds such as techno, electro, underground club, crunk, grime, and hip-hop with R&B vocals. Sound like it’s up your alley? Check out the ICA calendar here. We’ll meet you on the dance floor!
