Why: Cozy up by the fireplace and choose from sommelier Jason Irving’s 250-bottle wine list or craft cocktails by Eastern Standard alum Vincent Stipo.
When: Sun.-Wed., 5-10 p.m.; Thurs.-Sat., 5-11 p.m.
Where: 371 Commonwealth Ave., Back Bay (617-517-5915).

Blow Out and Go Out
Enjoy specially priced treatments like the massage-heavy mani/pedi ($50, reg. $65) and voluminous blowout ($30, reg. $35-$65) in SalonCapri’s sleek space.
Why: Complimentary smoky-eye makeup application (plus signature mocktails) with any service; request an in-house, premixed iPod shuffle for max chillax.

Where: 406 Legacy Pl., Dedham (781-320-0900).

Sunday Brunch
What: Whip up French toast souffle, muffins, and a little hair of the dog to lessen the effects of your debauchery.

When: This (and every) Sunday.
Where: Check out our online gallery for ideas on hosting at home.

Last-Minute Weekend at
The Inn at Ocean’s Edge
Bypass the moving-student mobs and head north to mid-Maine and the halcyon resort on the Penobscot Bay; it’s still taking reservations, especially for Sunday and Monday.
Why: The Lobster for Lovers package that offers three shellfish meals over 24 hours, including the signature salt-roasted whole lobster for din-din (call to reserve 24 hours in advance).
When: Staycation regret sets in.
Where: 20 Stonecoast Rd., Lincolnville (207-236-0945).

Barracuda Tavern Opens
Transport yourself to the shore at this tucked-away, nautically themed watering hole slinging local ales (Shipyard, Sea Dog), succulent seafood bites (fried fish tacos, oyster po’boys), and choice desserts (hello, deep-fried cheesecake).
Why: It’s one of the only spots in town serving Key West-style conch fritters.
When: Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.-2 a.m.; Sun., noon-midnight.
Where: 15 Bosworth St., Downtown (617-482-0301).

William Wegman: Inside/Outside
Your last chance to catch the 38-photo exhibition spanning twenty years of captivating Weimaraner moments (both in-studio and alfresco), plus never-before-seen shots from Wegman’s new Flying Dog series.
Why: Head next door to Eastern Standard for the newly introduced pork porterhouse or the Sunday-night veal brisket special.
