Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $15, you'll receive $30 worth of tapas, pizza, drinks, and more at The Globe, located on Belmont Street.
Recently opened, The Globe brings the good life to everyday hunger-havers with an affordable selection of artisan pizza and tapas, tasty beverages, and nightly live music. Like a United Nations potluck party, the menu boasts an eclectic selection of social food staples such as the Maiale pizza, with ham, pork belly, caramelized onions, blue cheese, pears, and cream ($15). Tapas aficionados can choose from a plethora of small plates, such as the chianti-cured salami ($4), the bacon-stuffed eggs ($4), and the roast garlic and chickpea dip ($4). Wines and classic cocktails draw on regional blends for local flavor, while revolving taps dispense a cornucopia of craft beers.
Decorated with fresh flowers and idiosyncratic artwork, the intimate space provides an ideal setting for listening to the nightly performances by local musicians and their loyal robot backup bands, while a large garage-style door opens onto cozy patio seating on warm days.
