for January 18th

Kick it old school Southie and have a family dinner.  Every Sunday, Barlow’s serves up classic comfort food like roast beef and turkey (Sunday roast choice is rotated weekly).  For $18 you get a Sunday supper like mom use to make with soup and salad.  Kids are just $9 for a half portion and ice cream for dessert.   There is plenty of parking in the A Street area on the weekends so treat yourself to a family meal – all that’s missing is the arguing!

Belly up to the bar on Sunday night – after all it is a holiday this Monday – and listen to the music.  Every Sunday night, the Playwright  (658 East Broadway) has live acoustic country music from 8pm-11pm.  A perfect excuse for a night out.

Plenty of free parking too!  Insider’s Tip: Get there early!  Thanks to the amount of flat screens TVs and the addition of their new 82 inch flat screen, Seapoint is the perfect spot to watch the Pats.
