October 25th

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! Stick around for the game after!

Enjoy Trick or Treating for adults on Friday, October 25th from 7pm-10pm! Prizes and surprises of all shapes and sizes await you as you and your friends as you are shuttled between 13 locations on trolleys provided by Boston Duck Tours  (which is the most fun way to travel) where you will enjoy a ghoulish cocktail or a quick bite before you jump back on board and travel to the next ghostly location!  It’s $5 to ride the ducks to various stops in the neighborhood. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Fort Point Channel.

Southie is slowly turning into a shopping mecca.  Another boutique has opened its doors in South Boston.  Covet – a new consignment shop – is located at 395 West Broadway and will feature women’s clothing and accessories.  Stop by and check ’em out!  You never know was little hidden gem is just waiting for you to find it!

How ’bout them Red Sox?  The Red Sox take on the Cardinals in the World Series on Thursday at Fenway at 8:07pm at Fenway Park.  Saturday and Sunday at 8:07pm in St. Louis.  We’re getting butterflies just thinking about it.  Wondering where to watch the game?  We’ve got some suggestions: https://caughtinsouthie.com/restaurants-bar/7-places-watch-game 

Caught in Southie’s favorite dj, DJ Kait will be spinning the tunes at the Monster Bash at Stadium on Old Colony Ave on Saturday, October 26th from 8pm to 1am.  There will be food, dancing, cash bar, and prizes for best costume.  Tickets are $10 at the door.

Family Pick:
A local favorite, The Children’s Magical Halloween Castle, takes place this weekend on Saturday, October 26th and Sunday, October 27th 12pm-4pm each day.  The Castle Island Association transforms Fort Independence at Castle Island into a family friendly Halloween showcase.  Enjoy magic tricks, storytelling, popcorn and treats.  Don’t forget to wear your costume.  This event is free and open to the public.

Help out:
We all have them in our medicine cabinets – bottles of old prescriptions drugs.  South Boston CAN and The Boston police department want you to participate in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 26th.  From 11am to 1pm, you can stop by C-6 police Station on West Broadway and drop off your unused and expired prescription drugs.  It’s a safe way to protect our kids, families and the environment.
