Wolfie’s is back and better than ever.  Stop by this weekend sit in the coveted window seats and do some of the best people watching in Southie.   Enjoy a glass of sangria while you enjoy the view . It’s fruity and refreshing and $8 a glass.  (The sangria not the view!)

If you like guacamole then you’ll love Papagayo (283 Summer Street) with over .  Head to this summer hot spot and indulge in some of the best guacamole around – they make is fresh right at your table. 
Mix and mingle at one of the best Mexican and Tequila bars around.  We highly recommend the tequila snowcones.  They are muy bien!
