If you’re in need of some serious caffeination, this Japanese café’s signature drink will do it. And by “drink,” they actually mean two drinks: a martini glass of chilled, foamed espresso, and a cappuccino topped with unique latte art. It’s strong, smooth, and totally Foodstagram-worthy.
Show off your moves at a contra dance
Price: $5-12 on a sliding scale
If you haven’t tried it, traditional New England-style country dancing may not have a lot of sex appeal. If you have, you’ll know it’s incredibly fun and attracts a super-hip crowd. The Porter Square contra dance provides a beginner lesson before every open dance, so it’s accessible even if you’ve never do-si-doed.
