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.

Tequila shots and baskets of corn chips are for amateurs. Prove that you have the biggest cajones this Cinco de Mayo by entering yourself in Tavern on the Water’s Jalapeño Eating Contest.

There are plenty of options for those who don’t like the hot stuff. Ole Grill has a mariachi band and traditional Mexican street food. Beehive also has traditional Mexican music and a special menu. Masa offers $5 margaritas and a prix-fixe Mexican meal for the entire month of May.

We’re glad Dolly Parton’spuppies” have stopped hurting her long enough for her to perform in Boston tonight.

You can see into the future at No. 9 Park. The Boston 2012 Dinner features dishes from the city’s up-and-coming chefs.
