Soak up the sun on the patio at MC Spiedo (606 Congress Street) – the Southie Waterfront’s newest addition and enjoy a selection of antipasti and charcuterie—such Prosciutto, Mission Figs and Mint or Local Burrata, Chili Flake and Focaccia—or a full spread of spit-roasted specialties. Sip a rotating selection of bright, summery sips for the month of for $8 or by the pitcher for $20.  This weekend’s summer sip is the Lorenzo Relaxer: A tropical combination of local Ipswich Rum, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, Coco Lopez, fresh orange and pineapple juice and nutmeg.  We’ll raise our glass to that!

Better by the box.  We know wine in the box has got a bad rap – but the good people of Richer Pour – their headquarters happens to be right here in Southie, USA – is doing a great job of changing that conversation.  Richer Pour works with celebrated winemakers and eliminates unnecessary packaging – who wants bottles clicking around in your recycling.  Hide the evidence with a box!  They offer a variety of wines from prosecco to cab and everything in between.  You can pick up a box at Al’s Liquors on West Broadway.  One box = 4 bottles so its perfect to take to a cookout, party or leave on your countertop at home.  For more information visit: www.richerpour.com
