Rather than an expansive menu with a mish-mash of food options, The Parlour zones in on two popular eats: pizza and meatballs. Red pies with pre-selected toppings include a shrimp pizza festooned with jumbo shrimp, chorizo, and pineapple-cilantro salsa; white pizza options include the potato pie with ham and Swiss cheese. Guests can also customize their own pies with more than 30 different toppings that range from classic green peppers to the more eclectic Bleu cheese and potatoes. Meatballs are found on top of pizza crusts, as a slider, in a grinder, or tossed in a bowl with pesto or spicy marinara sauce. In addition to its savory fare, The Parlour is outfitted with complimentary Wi-Fi, and a quartet of HD TVs that showcase popular sporting events, including hockey, football, and kick-the-can.

James's Gate Restaurant & Pub, named and designed after Dublin's St. James's Gate Brewery, site of Arthur Guinness' famed stout, serves traditional Irish and American cuisine in a classic, inviting setting. Diners can take a seat in the restaurant section of James's Gate, filled with bright colors and elegant décor, such as local artwork depicting kings getting facials. After taking a gander at the restaurant menu patrons can stick a fork in the pan-seared duck, served with traditional roasted potatoes and a spinach salad ($21), or sink sharpened incisors into the hand-cut salmon, a savory combination of a grilled filet, red-beet risotto, and arugula salad ($22). For a more casual outing, patrons can pop into the pub, where a wood-burning fireplace and authentic Irish church pews support a pub menu spouting imported appetizers, including bangers and chips ($9) or chips and curry ($6), that open for a classy cast of sandwiches ($9+) and entrees such as the Gate meatloaf ($13) or shepherd's pie ($11).

Music director Lewis Buckley headed the U.S. Coast Guard band and conducted several prominent New England symphonies before landing at the Metropolitan Wind Symphony, which has been tickling eardrums with woodwind, brass, and percussion concerts since 1971. "An ACB Preview" celebrates the 75-member symphony's invitation to play at the 2012 annual conference of the Association of Concert Bands with a sampling of the program they'll perform for a national audience. The concert kicks off with Percy Grainger's Lincolnshire Posy, which recasts six English folk songs as lush, wind-powered melodies free of interrupting Robin Hoods. Principal oboist Elana Lorance takes charge in James Kessler's Hudson River Rhapsody and a new transcription of Gershwin's An American in Paris ends the evening with Gallic-via-Broadway aplomb. Starting at 1:30 p.m., a preconcert talk by maestro Buckley unveils some of the music's hidden features and lets uncertain ears nuzzle the score.

The comic confederation also hosts The Horse's Mouth show every first Wednesday as well as free open-mic nights on Tuesday, allowing unknowns to test their material in front of a captive audience and to control the venue’s laugh track.

Bella Luna Restaurant & Milky Way Lounge, a winner of several “Best of Boston” awards from The Improper Bostonian and Boston Magazine, and a 2013 winner of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce's Small Business of the Year award, is renowned for its upscale and creative twist on traditional Italian and American fare. Dig into gourmet pizzas, grilled Angus beef burgers, or flavorful entrees such as adobo chicken, cod picatta, and the signature, Better Than Your Mama's Meatballs. Behind a U-shaped bar, bartenders craft signature cocktails and pour pints of American craft beers, including Allagash White, Harpoon IPA, and Left Hand Milk Stout.

The eatery is decorated with a subdued sci-fi theme, with dangling star lights, sparkly blue barstool cushions, and Martian bouncers. Try your hand at Ms. Pacman or MegaTouch, or listen to live music on select nights.
