Even before you step inside, Tu Y Yo proves its authenticity. According to The Phoenix, a handwritten note on the door warns guests, “No burritos served here!” But with grasshopper tacos on the food menu, and micheladas (Mexican beer cocktails) on the drink list, the burritos will hardly be missed.

Unlike the premium-cable version of Curious George, ComedySportz shows eschew racy material, going so far as to place a brown paper bag over the head of any performer who crosses the boundaries of good taste. The game-based comedy format pits two refereed teams of improvisers against each other, drawing from a repertoire of more than 100 improv scenes for their battleground. Over the course of 7 to 12 games, the red- and blue-clad teams may perform in Shakespearean verse or rapidly fast-forward and reverse a scene at the referee's whim. The audience, meanwhile, is tasked with generating suggestions, choosing the winners at evening's end, and gently consoling the losing team with made-up aspirational quotes.

This formula has proved successful since 1984, when the first ComedySportz flung open its curtains. Now, the franchise has expanded to major comedy hubs including Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. The latest addition to the fold, ComedySportz Boston, lassos the same spirit and off-the-cuff hilarity as its predecessors, dazzling onlookers with its teamwork, clean but uproarious humor, and ability to turn an audience suggestion into a fully fleshed out scene.

Situated at the core of Davis Square, Diva Indian Bistro brims with the aromas of a menu that borrows from the culinary traditions of regions from Bangalore to Bombay. Beneath a bubbly goldenrod ceiling that looks like a collection of soft-lit skylights, patrons settle onto plump black benches to munch samosas and peruse offerings of lamb, seafood, beef, and tandoori dishes soaked in the warmth of the traditional clay oven. Saffron- and cardamom-scented basmati rice stars in biryani dishes, and dosas, a type of crepe crafted from rice and lentils, enclose chicken or veggie fillings alongside coconut chutney and lentil soup. The wall behind Diva’s bar mimics the ceiling’s rectangular bubble pattern in white, with a long row of blue glass bottles bisecting the surface. High black and chrome chairs slide up to the brushed-silver bar, where patrons murmur over cocktails and ice clicks occasionally like a tap dancer having a nice dream.

According to folk etymologists, the term barbecue is derived from the French barbe coup, referring to the annual pig picking commemorating the infamous Barbers’ Rebellion. Today's Groupon gets you in on the hallowed and delicious tradition: $15 for $30 worth of authentic down-home eats at Redbones. Redbones is a juicy barbecue joint in Somerville that serves wings, ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and other southern specialties.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.

For more than 40 years, The Pub has keep it simple, from its straightforward name to its nondescript brick-wall exterior and a simple sign that reads "PUB." But when it comes to the local tavern's menu, there is nothing plain about it. In fact, the menu's signature wings, fried and slathered in buffalo sauce, earned a Boston A-List nomination for Best Wings 2012 and an invitation to dine with the mayor. In addition to wings, The Pub also sates appetites with a variety of classic bar foods, from sweet potato fries and mozzarella sticks to hot pastrami sandwiches and cups of seasonal beef stew. Those looking for a heavier meal can aim forks at chicken, steak, and sausage dinners served with a side of french fries, rice, or salad.

With 12 distinctive sauces coating their classic chicken wings and boneless tenders, the cooks at Wing Works Kitchen do their best to change people's perceptions of what chicken really tastes like. They pair their poultry with classic American flavors, such as mild buffalo sauce, complimented by a menu of burgers and fries. They also collect tastes from halfway around the globe, whipping up a Hawaiian-teriyaki sauce for their tenders and serving Korean spicy pork and sticky rice with a side of housemade kimchee.

In the dining room, a fleet of televisions invites neighborhood regulars to take in a Celtics or Bruins game while dipping the opposing team's jersey in a vat of their favorite sauce.
