Treat yourself to special prix fixe lunch and dinner menus from restaurants all around the city, along with extra special prices.

Did we mention that #DineOutBoston has a fun contest this year? Simply snap a picture of your meal, tag #DineOutBoston, and the restaurant, and you could win a $100 gift card to a participating Dine Out Boston (or Cambridge!!) restaurant. The picture with the most likes each day will win. Happy Snapping!

Julia Child’s Birthday | August 15

Happy birthday, Julia! The iconic chef would’ve turned 106 today. To celebrate we gathered together our favorite quotes from the one and only Julia Child.

Celebrate: All month long!


Harvard Square Business Association Movie Night | August 16

Summer isn’t over yet! This Thursday, grab your friends and family and see a movie under the stars in Harvard Square. You definitely won’t want to arrive late for this movie, because the ImprovBoston will be there performing a family-friendly, fast-paced interactive improv show.

Want a movie hint? Be Harvard Square’s guest, on Palmer Street, where the dishware dances and the furniture sings. It’s a tale as old as time.
