Tommy Doyle's menu whacks hunger on its horned head with a delicious shillelagh of Irish-influenced pub grub. Starters include colcannon cakes ($6.99)—the traditional Irish appetizer made from hand-crafted potatoes, cabbage, and scallions—and the famine-fighting potato skins ($6.99). Cow-consumers will have no qualms with Tommy Doyle's array of burgers such as the bacon-and-cheese-crowned Hill 16 ($9.99) and the Kitchen Sink ($10.99), topped with mushrooms, jalapenos, onion, cheese, and a fried egg. Wayward Leopold Blooms missing the cuisine of fair Erin can opt for traditional Irish dishes such as a shepherd's pie ($11.99) and corned beef and cabbage ($10.99), or discover how seafood tastes on this side of the Atlantic with Tommy Doyle's most popular dish, the fish 'n' chips ($12.49). In honor of the Coyote Grill, the restaurant that preceded Tommy Doyle's at its Kendall Square location, Tommy Doyle's also serves fajitas in chicken ($11.99), steak ($12.99), and veggie ($10.99) variations. If your NASA training requires that you eat all your food for the day by mid-afternoon, stop by Tommy Doyle's for its weekend brunch.

Within a vintage New England factory building, guests at RooBar drink and dine in a contemporary setting featuring exposed-steel beams, an open kitchen, and a custom-built wood-fired oven made of beach stone. The menu is made up of specialty burgers, pasta, and innovative dishes such as coffee- and wine-braised short ribs or scallop and bacon pizzas. And to complement these creative dishes, RooBar has cultivated a warm and inviting ambiance that Boston.com describes as “upscale, all right, but it feels more whimsical than snooty.”

Every night as the sun sets, the undead emerge from the depths of the 25,000-square-foot cityscape, hungry for flesh. Running and hiding is futile––your only option: kill or be killed. Thankfully, all it takes to stop these automated killers is a well-aimed shot of CO2 from your provided rifle. Miss, and you'll be grabbed by the zombie actors who are eager to rob you of your brains or SAG card. Luckily, you have a few things on your side: up to 10 other zombie killers will join you on the 15-minute mission, and since the Zombies themselves aren't armed, you'll need no padding, goggles, or other safety gear to weigh you down during your bid to save the human race.

The chefs at Tap House Grille wrap bacon around meatloaf, top hand-formed Angus beef patties with guacamole and roasted chilies, and put inventive spins on classic American dishes. In the dining room, flatscreen televisions hang above tufted banquettes and a handsome wooden bar keeps more than 50 bottled beers and 24 rotating drafts chilled. On Friday and Saturday nights, live music, comedy acts, and Simon Says tournaments entertain patrons, and a complimentary valet service babysits patrons’ cars.

Though Westgate Lanes has been open for more than half a century, you'd never know it from just looking at the Brockton institution, which benefited from a pre-Millennium face-lift in 1999. Today, all 62 lanes feature automatic scoring, new furniture, and modern lighting, which casts a celestial aura during prize-packed cosmic bowling on Saturday nights. Open 365 days a year, the facility swings open its doors to challenge sphere-flinging friends, leagues, and parties with frames of tenpin or candlepin, a variation of bowling that uses smaller balls and requires more concentration than teaching a mechanical bull long division. High-definition TVs orbit the center's 13 billiards tables, and, between competitive rounds, players can refuel fatigued fingers at Harry's Pub and Grill.
