Not all live comedy is contained to Boston’s Theater District. Just ask the folks at Improv Asylum, located in an underground spot in the North End, where local actors perform different sketch and improvisational comedy shows nightly. The subterranean space on Hanover Street hosts 90-minute shows with up to six different actors in each show, performing skits that touch upon family humor, current events and even some adult topics (suggested minimum age for shows is 17 years due to the content). There are nine different shows held here each week, with a cast that interacts with the audience to ensure the authenticity of each show. Best of all, military and student discounts keep the already-low prices at rock-bottom levels.

While The Bar Room’s name might suggest the spot is solely a nighttime hangout, the crowd of people chewing with their mouths open during dinner hours proves otherwise. Long before the music, dancing, and late-night spilling contests begin, chefs craft an array of American-inspired dishes, such as fish and chips, spicy Cajun chicken, beer-basted pastrami sandwiches, and barbeque-chicken thin-crust pizza. Those sidled up at the bar don't need to keep their incisors sedentary, as bowls of housemade potato chips are available for complimentary crunching.
In Boston’s financial district rests Vintage Lounge, an American bistro with an extensive wine list that has earned the restaurant a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence every year since 2007. While perched on leather chairs in an amber-hued dining room, guests pair designer cocktails with sharable small plates and hearty entrees such as braised short ribs crowned with roasted shallots and acorn squash or hand-cut fettuccine in a bolognese sauce. A glowing candle-topped bar adds to the restaurant’s romantic atmosphere and helps diners celebrate overcoming their fear of shadow puppets.
