Spring has sprung at Local 149 (149 P Street)!  Featuring new items such as Couscous Dressed Salmon, Fish and Chips, and Rosemary Rack of Lamb and the Dark and Stormy Ice Cream Sammie, the menu at Local is a breath of fresh air.  Don’t worry crowd favorites such as Hog Wings and Fried Brussels Sprouts are still on the menu but we have a feeling you might have some new favorites!

Word to the mother. We are looking for the mother of all pictures for our first ever Mother’s Day Picture Contest!  Send us endearing snapshots of long ago or funny photos of mom and kids.  Maybe your lucky enough to have three generations of moms captured in a photo.  You can even send us pictures of beautiful handmade cards or signs that you received for Mother’s Day.  Just as long as mom is the subject!  We are taking submission until Sunday, May 6th.  We will then select the top 5 and have the readers of Caught in Southie vote for their favorite!  Our winner will receive a very special Mother’s Day Spa Package courtesy of Nurture Spa and Salon.
Send in your pictures to [email protected].  It’s a perfect way to show mom how much you care!

Celebrate Mexican Independence Day by drinking many frozen margaritas and chowing down on chips and guacamole.  Cinco de Mayo (May 5th for those of you who flunked Spanish) falls on a Saturday this year which means places like Papagayo will have a line out the door (and last year they literally had a line out the door).  So why not celebrate all week long!  For recommendations visit:https://caughtinsouthie.com/cinco-de-mayo

Bonus:  Looking for some extra bread in your wallet this summer? The Seapoint Restaurant is looking for servers and bartenders.  This 40 year old family run eating and drinking joint would love for you to join their team.  Those interested should contact Tommy Connolly at 617-504-0353.
