Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Escape has three homes: Below Howl at the Moon in Boston, New England Seafood Restaurant & Lounge in Methuen, and Park Grill & Spirits in Worcester. While the Methuen and Worcester locations bear the name Dick Doherty's Beantown Comedy Escape, the Boston location is known as Dick's Beantown Comedy Den. The Boston location recently moved to the Comedy Den from their previous location at the Vault, where they hosted standup comedians, including Dane Cook, who held a weekly gig there for more than a year, and fellow Boston natives Bill Burr and Joe Rogan. Dick Doherty's comedy clubs as a whole continue to detonate laugh dynamite with their rotating casts of national and local comedians.

The “Alley,” located near the Theatre District, is home to several of Boston’s hippest nightclubs and easygoing drink spots. Sweetwater Tavern falls into the latter category, with all the vibrancy of a pub instead of a pulsing dance hall. That said, the tavern’s tagline is “burgers, beers, live music,” so patrons know exactly what they’re in for when they step through the doors. This is definitely a hangout spot for the college set, thanks to its unassuming brick walls, chalkboard menus and hanging Christmas lights. Almost every night hinges on a theme: Mondays are open mic nights, Tuesdays are for trivia, Wednesday means karaoke and weekends kick off with live bands, deejays and more. A nice beer selection and a menu of easy-eating classics make Sweetwater a Boston area favorite.

The Citi Performing Arts Center's calendar of musicals, operas, rock concerts, dance productions, standup comedians, and classic-film screenings is a culmination of its decades as a Boston historical landmark. Starting out in 1925 as a "movie cathedral," the theater?then a renovated arts center capable of housing the most ambitiously scaled Broadway productions?morphed into the headquarters of the Boston Ballet. Throughout all its names and incarnations, the venue has retained the grandeur and luster of some long-lost wing of Versailles. In the lobby, dark-veined columns carved from imported marble vault skyward toward an arched ceiling and an enormous crystal chandelier that hangs like a pendulum from its center. In the theater itself, frescoes and intricate filigree surround the golden cupola that looms over a sea of scarlet velvet seats?a sight as awe-inspiring to audiences as it is terrifying to first-graders performing their first clarinet recital there.

Whole Foods Market's commitment to the interdependent network of sustainable farms and organic producers can be seen in its carefully selected product lines. The homegrown 365 Everyday Value brand makes it easy to eat naturally, organically, and economically. It features an array of items from all product categories, including groceries, vitamins, household items, and more—each manufactured to meet the rigorous quality standards woven into the fabric of Whole Foods Market, which itself is made from 100% alpaca wool.

Bacco’s Wine + Cheese offers up exactly what it promises, plus a little more, including a selection of charcuterie items, a variety of pâtés and mousses, craft beers and other items that pair nicely with wine and cheese. The shop has its own wine rating system called the “Wine Guy,” which it uses to describe wines instead of the usual 100-point system. The system breaks wines down into three categories. Wine Guy Value is the first category; these wines are marked for being a good value, no matter what the price. Second is Wine Guy Best Buy, and the third is Wine Guy Favorite. The selection of cheeses is always changing, but is always excellent and customers can ask for a sample. There are wine tastings almost every day and craft beer tastings on Tuesdays. This Back Bay shop is a favorite in the neighborhood.
