Dine Out Boston - Formerly known as restaurant week Boston, Dine Out Boston is a great way to support our local eateries. Participating restaurants will offer prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner, giving Bostonians an opportunity to sample neighborhood spots at special prices.
Starlight Square Cambridge - Starlight Square is a temporary intervention designed to build capacity within the Central Square community for outdoor performance, learning, dining, and dialogue. Before the pandemic, however, this idea was pitched as something much simpler. Still using scaffolding and scrim, the Central Square Business Improvement District, Flagg Street Studio, and Boyes-Watson Architects teams imagined using a portion of Lot 5 to create a square in the Square, a civic commons in the heart of the city.
