Not only are you getting a jump on your Christmas shopping, you are helping our local economy!  Really, it’s a win/win situation.   The City of Boston is also offering free metered spots on Small Business Saturday too! Also – Mark Your Calendars – It’s the Annual South Boston Christmas Stroll and Tree Lighting – another opportunity to support local small business!

$50 gift card purchases come with a $10 bonus card as well as The Broadway scratch ticket! The prizes on the scratch tickets range from a free appetizer to Apple AirPods and $100 Lulu Lemon gift cards. (This applies for every $50 they spend in gift cards so a $200 gift card for example comes with 4 $10 bonus cards and 4 scratch tickets.) Sweet! 

Cocktail O’Clock

Take a break from shopping this weekend and enjoy a cocktail! Roza Lyons is the perfect spot to put your feet up and enjoy a Espresso Martini made with Pinnacle Double Espresso Vodka, Skyy Vanilla Bean Vodka, Irish Cream and Kahlua or the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Martini with Jack Daniel’s Honey & RumChata.
