Where there's smoke, there's a fiery Groupon. Fill your lungs with one night of unlimited fruity deliciousness at the plush and swanky Meridian Hookah Lounge (a $12 value). Meridian is an intimate and relaxing lounge that's open until 3 a.m. and has live music several nights a week.
Canadian pop-rock troupers the Barenaked Ladies play ringmasters to a freewheeling circus of brainy pop, brawny blues, and carefree jams as the Last Summer on Earth tour lights up arenas and amphitheaters across the continent. On stage, they maintain their 20-year reputation as an engaging live act with audience interaction, hook-laced lyrical patter, bookworm wit, and mastery of the tone sequences that steered '90s hits such as “One Week” and “If I Had a Million Dollars” into perpetual ubiquity.
Besides being a sports-bar and grill, Peabody’s Billiard and Games racks up good times in the triangle of pool tables, dartboards, and foosball. Of course, the 70 TVs and on-premises liquor store don’t hurt either. Periodic all-you-can-drink happy hours and other special events take place every week, offering table athletes of all stripes an arena for friendly competition. Patrons might square off in the weekly beer-pong rally, or pit their psychic skills against each other in the weekly poker tournaments. All the while, the kitchen bustles into the night, preparing late night items using only the freshest ingredients such as the Southern-style fried calamari and Peabody’s signature wings in one of nine sauces.
The spirited wine bar fetes grown-up grape-juice lovers of all varietals with a plethora of deliciously fermented beverages and savory eats alongside a cozy smoking room ideal for enjoying top-brand cigars. Settle in at one of the hardwood high-top tables or along the timber-culled bar with the mediterranean flatbread teeming with feta cheese, chicken, creamy hummus, and a smattering of kalamata olives ($8), or grab hold of the bumble-bee banini buzzing with a white-albacore-tuna medley in a warm, bready embrace ($7). Like Derrida's interpretation of Dr. Seuss, the deconstructed salad breaks down a list of ingredients for creative herbivores to choose from, including monterey cheese, sundried tomatoes, black olives, and a choice of drizzled dressing ($6). Myriad wine tapas such as the smoked salmon ($9), artisan cheese ($8), and toast-point trio ($6) complement the varied vineyard delights available in the fermentation emporium.
The Rack boasts impressive lunch, dinner, sushi, and cocktail menus at both the Hyde Park and Brandon eateries. House favorites include the Bomber ($12.95–$14.95), a specialty sushi roll of cooked and uncooked delights (snow crab, avocado, and asparagus topped with salmon, tuna, and eel sauce) served with tempura chips. Or blast through hunger with the Volcano roll’s cucumber, crab, cream cheese, avocado, eel sauce, and spicy mayo ($12.95–$13.95). Fusion appetizers, salads, sandwiches, single rolls, and chef special entrees round out The Rack's eclectic menus into a rolling billiard ball made of sticky rice.
