The Last Word

Your long day of corporate drudgery is over. Get out and enjoy the city! Here are a few ideas to get you started, lovingly picked by Boston Daily.

Christmas is a mere two weeks away, and even the most battle-tested shoppers can panic at this time of year. Pull yourself together and head to Club Monaco for its Celebrate the Season event. They will administer the champagne and chocolates to calm you down long enough to remember your brother’s shirt size.

Cries and Whiskers sounds like what happens when we’re late feeding our cat, but it is in fact the latest novel from Cambridge-based author Clea Simon. She’s joined by fellow mystery author Karen Olson, who will read from the less feline-centric Dead of the Day.

Boston Daily loves cheese, so you can imagine our excitement when we heard about Cheese Tuesday at L’Espalier. Locally made cheeses will be featured tonight, and maitre d’ Louis Risoli will give dairy lovers a primer on why cheese is so very delicious.

Mamma Mia! wraps up its Boston run this Sunday. Beat the last-minute rush and check out the wildly popular musical that features ABBA’s infectious Swedish pop hits.
