Kick it old school this weekend!  Wolfie’s (81 L Street) will be playing all the old disco tunes you love – and anyone that knows Wolfie’s knows he has the sweetest disco mix around!  Thursday – Sunday evenings enjoy a little Tavares while you drink and dine. Who knows –  you might even be moved to get up and dance.

Treat yourself to a nice steak dinner!  Morton’s Seaport is having a steak and seafood special.
Three-Course Dinner for $109.99 for two! or $65 per person.  The courses consist of: Single Cut Filet, two seafood choices, a signature potato, a fresh veggie and dessert!  Can’t beat that with a stick!
Pair your dinner with a Bottle of Estancia, Pinot Noir, Monterey for an additional $45.  Find an excuse to celebrate and make a reservation!  For more information go to: http://www.mortons.com/bostonseaport/

Pumpkin’ Crazy! What is it about this time of year that makes us crave pumpkin in everything we consume!  Harpoon UFO Pumpkin: Sweet in  taste, with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. According to Steve from Eastside Market (474 East Eighth Street), some other favorite pumpkin beers: Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead (out of Portsmouth NH), Brooklyn’s Post Road Pumpkin – a more subtle version that actually uses pumpkin flesh (some don’t), holds back on the classic pumpkin pie spices, is less sweet than others and has a crisper finish.  Eastside Market delivers too!

Rim your glass with cinnamon sugar to upgrade the experience.  Yum!

Who says scarves are just for keeping you warm?  They are a major fashion accessory and Ku De (663 East Broadway) Ta has Sir Alistair Rai,scarves by the dozen.  This collection – Rise of the Phoenix –  features patterns inspired  inspired by the colors of Arizona sunsets:soothing Northwestern shades of pinks, oranges, blue and greys in the totally hot Ikat pattern.  Prices starts at $55.  We can’t wait to get one around our neck!

So where are you watching the game?  Whether it’s a your old al ma mater, the Pats or the Bruins (yay Bruins!), we’ve got some suggestions of places to watch the game.  Here they are:https://caughtinsouthie.com/restaurants-bar/7-places-watch-game

Do Good:
Save a try this weekend!Southie Trees needs  your help!  The trees along West Second Street between B and D Streets are slowly suffocating due to the cables that were once there to help the tree grown straight.  Now that the trees have matured past their initial planting, the cables are strangling the branches and they are in poor condition.

Be a good neighbor and help save the trees.  Southie Trees are looking for volunteers to help cut the cables and remove tree stakes with the help of Greg Mosman, the City Arborist, and David Warner from Warner Larson Landscaping.  Southie Trees will also be offering proper tree maintenance guides to residents who live in that area.

Consider it your good deed of the day!
