The teaching methods and dance curriculum created by Mr. Fred Astaire are still being used today to make our students the most confident and stylish dancers they can be.
Eight ball in the corner pocket. A pool player announcing this at The Wave Sports Pub could be talking about any of the 124 corner pockets on the bar's 31 Brunswick Gold Crown tables. These share space in the pub with ping-pong tables, dartboards, and large, flat-screen HD televisions that broadcast sports ranging from football and college basketball to races between dads to find the TV clickers buried in their couches.
Games can be scored to the dulcet tones of local bands performing, music from a digital satellite jukebox. During karaoke every Thursday–Saturday, guests belt tunes from more than 10,000 songs that are updated every month. In the middle of all that entertainment, bartenders supply beer by the bottle and tap while the culinary team crafts classic pub food such as fried-shrimp baskets, Angus beef sliders, and mozzarella sticks.
The menu at Porter Belly's Pub is packed with savory, soul-satisfying eats. Dig into a plate of homemade pork sausages, grilled to deliciousness with dried cranberries, garlic, and herbs ($8). Each of the nine signature burgers—such as the Alamo with roasted red pepper and monterey jack cheese—comes with your choice of a beef, chicken, turkey, or veggie patty ($9). Entrees include a hearty portion of shepherd's pie made with fresh ground beef and select vegetables in home-style gravy. This particular pie also is accompanied by a heaping helping of mashed potatoes layered with melty cheese ($9.95). Saturday night's ailments can be cured with a time machine or a hearty Sunday brunch, served from noon to 3 p.m. This Groupon is also valid toward Porter Belly's Pub's prix fixe neighborhood menu.
Devlin’s dishes out upscale cuisine in a friendly and casual atmosphere, pampering patrons with a menu stocked with innovative twists on traditional fare. Philly cheesesteak spring rolls come partnered with smoky chipotle sauce ($10), and lobster penne marries fresh seafood and pasta using a flavorful marsala cream sauce as both ring bearer and maid of honor ($23 for large, $14 for small). For a sharable snack that doubles as a flightless Frisbee, try a crispy pizza topped with prosciutto, fig jam, and blue cheese, with caramelized onions and arugula officiating the taste-bud tug-of-war between savory and sweet ($14). Though Devlin’s has convenient night-owl hours, the weekly Sunday jazz brunch lets early birds practice their sophisticated snaps whilst pecking at sleep-betraying orders of eggs benedict served with canadian bacon ($10) or soul-satisfying portions of challah french toast drizzled with Vermont maple syrup, served with bacon, sausage, or ham ($10).
Called an "easygoing joint" by the The Boston Phoenix, the family-owned Corner Pub of Chinatown lavishes savory seekers with its menu of fresh, made-from-scratch comfort fare. Sink smiles into Monterrey cheese-infused nachos grande ($5.75), or share a starter of chicken fingers doused in teriyaki, barbecue, or buffalo sauce ($5.95). The hand-packed pub burger boasts a half pound of beefy sustenance ($8), and two quarter-pound hot dogs come lovingly cradled in grilled buns ($5.50). Those craving marinated eats can park pincers in the chicken kabobs ($8) while simmering down in the recently refurbished lounge, allowing diners to forget about their day job working as secretary for Emperor Garth Vicious of the Eighth Dimension.
