The Outer Space is a fitting setting for an old-school sailor. Its interior features a dark wood bar, a vintage-looking couch, and a ship's steering wheel hanging on one wall. On top of that, the bar hosts live music seven nights a week. Of course, The Outer Space is an extra fitting spot for a sailor thanks to its extensive beer menu, which runs the gamut from pilsners and stouts to ciders. See a calendar of The Outer Space's live events here.

Each Wood-N-Tap restaurant’s kitchen serves a menu of casual American food that ranges from burgers and sandwiches to pasta, pizza, and entrees. The eatery partners with farms from New Jersey to Maine to cultivate 100% all-natural meats for their homegrown burgers, which feature tender hormone-, steroid-, and antibiotic-free meats such as Wagyu beef, bison, free-range turkey, and pork. Chefs grill entrees including swordfish and bourbon-marinated grilled sirloin, as well as signature items such as mac ‘n’ cheese pizza and Bar Bites sliders constructed with bison, Angus beef, turkey, or a baseball.

Wood-N-Tap blossomed from the fitting combination of its owners’ skills—Mike scouts the locations, Phil markets the brand, and Wil and Kenny manage the daily operations of the various locations. More than a decade ago, after forging a friendship as strong as oak and a partnership as strong as steel-reinforced oak, the crew opened the first Wood-N-Tap location in 2002—and they have expanded to seven locations and counting.

Black Bear Saloon roars back at growling stomachs with pub-style American eats dished out amid the cheers and jeers of an energized sports bar. Perched along the walls, flat-screen TVs broadcast big games as diners voyage through waves of russian dressing that flow between the Kodiak sandwich's layers of turkey breast, bacon, and swiss cheese. Late-night menus keep guests content past midnight, and entertainment events, such as live shows by DJs and local bands, accompany bites while snuffing out the other senses' plans to go on strike. Staying true to its outdoorsy influences, Black Bear also offers the Cub Campfire dessert—a chance for diners to make s'mores right at their table.

Having recorded for such esteemed labels as Columbia Masterworks and Koch International Classics, Orchestra New England showcases masterful musicianship through performances of works by classical, romantic, and modern composers throughout the year. A yearly celebration of the sounds and sages of the baroque era, Baroquefest 2011 will feature guest harpsichordist Linda Skernick and selections such as Bach's Concerto in A Minor and Telemann's Tafelmusik III. "Soiree" explores the music of Vienna in the 1920s, as the orchestra will perform Schoenberg's arrangements of Debussy's Afternoon of a Faun, Mahler's Symphony no. 4, and excerpts from Thomas Edison's short-lived heavy metal band, The Draconian Lightbülbs. The premiere of a new work by composer-in-residence Mark Kuss, "Sounds. Distant." explores community displacement in China and features native Chinese musicians. The "Sounds. Distant." concert will also feature performances of works by Ives, Elgar, Bartok, Schubert, and more.

The deep swell of rolling balls and cacophony of falling pins punctuate conversations at family-friendly Amity Bowl. After retrieving shoes and selecting spherical pin-bashing implements, pairs of guests will assume command of a lacquered lane for ten frames of relaxed collaboration or energetic competition. Partake in traditionally lit pin-thrashing, or revel in the dim splendor of cosmic bowling, which, like most leisure and every incident of smearing toothpaste in a friend's hair, occurs during the weekend. Two frosty cups of bubbly beverages may help reinvigorate wearied bowlers during the seventh-frame stretch. As an automated mouth at the lane’s end continues restocking its hourglass-shaped teeth, bowlers may also visit the snack bar to sink their own teeth into classic bowling-alley munchies.
