The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

Situated at the core of Davis Square, Diva Indian Bistro brims with the aromas of a menu that borrows from the culinary traditions of regions from Bangalore to Bombay. Beneath a bubbly goldenrod ceiling that looks like a collection of soft-lit skylights, patrons settle onto plump black benches to munch samosas and peruse offerings of lamb, seafood, beef, and tandoori dishes soaked in the warmth of the traditional clay oven. Saffron- and cardamom-scented basmati rice stars in biryani dishes, and dosas, a type of crepe crafted from rice and lentils, enclose chicken or veggie fillings alongside coconut chutney and lentil soup. The wall behind Diva’s bar mimics the ceiling’s rectangular bubble pattern in white, with a long row of blue glass bottles bisecting the surface. High black and chrome chairs slide up to the brushed-silver bar, where patrons murmur over cocktails and ice clicks occasionally like a tap dancer having a nice dream.

Olde Magoun's replaces the handlebar mustache fights and blindfolded moonshine tastings of old-timey saloons with a menu of fresh pub fare. Thai beef skewers ($9.95) and Cuban egg rolls ($8.95) warm up the palate in time for exquisite entrees like the chicken curry ($11.95) and the grilled Reuben XXL ($9.95)—which arrives overstuffed with layers of shaved corned beef, Russian dressing, Swiss, and either ale-braised sauerkraut or homemade coleslaw. Carnivores who insist that their meat be shredded by a skilled hair-metal chef will savor the North Carolina pulled pork sandwich ($9.95), while the veggie-friendly V-8 pizza ($9.95) tops itself with every herbivorous morsel in the house. Olde Magoun's serves its food until late so that it can be paired more easily with a vast array of draught beer that includes Clown Shoes Brown Angel Ale, Murphy's Irish Stout, and Paper City Blueberry Ale.
