Judging by the lines every weekend, apparently Southie loves bagels. Serving up delicious bagels you can buy by the dozen or individually, Boston Bagel Co. (753 East Broadway) offers up breakfast sandwiches like the Southie Scramble, eggs, bacon, sausage, onions, peppers, and cheese for $4.50 and lunchtime specialty sandwiches like Turkey Avocado Club and the Tuna Melt.  Don’t feel like carbo-loading, Boston Bagel Co. offers wraps as well. 

Get cozy by the fire at Chalet (downstairs from Bastille Kitchen – 49 Melcher Street) and enjoy one of their creative cocktails.  This lounge is perfect for date night with it’s tartan plaid sofas, dark wood, and the warm glow of the fire.  http://bastillekitchen.net

Play Powerball! Why not right?  Someone has got to win, so why not us?  Powerball is expected to reach over $675 million in winnings this Saturday night – largest jackpot in history! We say buy a quick pick for a buck and fill your head with all the crazy rich money fantasies it can hold.  Maybe it’s fast cars, loose women, parking spots, Southie real estate or lavish trips to exotic places like Hingham or Marblehead.   Whatever your fantasy, it’s fun to dream.  It would be a fantastic way to start 2016! 
What would you do with $675 million?
