TGIF: The Southie Summer Friday Guide

Written by Mairead McGonagle

Who doesn’t love sneaking out a little early on Fridays? And if you’re sticking around the city for the weekend, there’s no better place to be than Southie. Here are our top picks on where to spend your #SouthieSummerFriday. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell your boss…)


Get your weekend started at Coppersmith! On Fridays during the summer, Coppersmith will offer a full bar & menu starting at 2pm. Head up to their roof deck to get a little sun and sip on their fab specialty drinks.

Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar

Starting June 10th through Labor Day, Loco will be open for lunch every Friday at 11:30am. Bail on work early and head over for some margs!

M Street Beach

If you’re lucky enough to live on the beach, you’re lucky enough! We suggest grabbing the whole crew and heading down for a sunset picnic, a game of volleyball, or for a relaxing sun session before the weekend begins. After all, Southie has the cleanest beaches in the Boston area!

Lawn on D

Spend your lunch break on the lawn! Head on over for Friday Lunch Breaks on D from 12pm-2pm. Enjoy live music from the Berklee Summer in the City concert series and bites from the city’s favorite food trucks. And if you don’t take a picture on the swings this summer, have you really even lived?

Free Fun Fridays

The popular series is back! Hosted by the Highland Street Foundation, you can attend eight different museums and art institutions for free every Friday this summer. From Mass MoCA and the MFA to Plimoth Plantation, take a peek at the full lineup here.

Music & Movie Fridays on the Harbor 

A summer staple! For another summer, the Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowe’s Wharf will be hosting their summer Friday movie series. Head on over just before sunrise to watch a favorite flick, like Jaws, Dirty Dancing, and so much more. Check out the full schedule here.
