Here's the Plan

citizen public house & oyster bar!

You’re such a shellout. 

EAT
Citizen Public House & Oyster Bar
What:
Folks behind the Franklin Cafe debut a first-class Fenway tavern, replete with 75 whiskeys; a saliva-inducing raw menu (oysters, mussels, steamers); and comforting, well-priced entrees like pork and beans and organic split chicken.
Why: The whole roasted suckling pig ($380; order 72 hours ahead), a singular ten-person feast with fall veggie and tater fixins.
When: Daily, 5 p.m.-1 a.m.
Where: 1310 Boylston St. (617-450-9000).

INHALE
Chrysanthemums in the Courtyard
What:
Take time to smell the flowers — 450 to be exact, including four-foot-tall single-stem mums painstakingly arranged throughout the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s indoor grounds (there’s even a homegrown varietal named Isabella).
Why: Mum’s the word.
When: Thru Nov. 28. Tues.-Sun., 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: 280 The Fenway (617-278-5156).

SHOP
Maiya Sale

When: Your Sunday brunch wardrobe needs some sprucing up.
Where: Online at swirl.com.

LISTEN
Mary Oliver
What:
The Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner reads from her latest poetry collection, Swan, a meditation on nature, animals (including her beloved dog Percy), humanity, and loss.
Why: Some poems are lovely as a tree.
When: Wed., 5 p.m.
Where: Wellesley College, Houghton Chapel, 106 Central St. (781-283-2685).

REJUVENATE
Swiss Apple Stem Cell Facial at Equinox
What:
Refresh for fall with an antiaging treatment that uses cultures from the rare Uttwiler Spätlauber apple (for reals, less than ten of the fruit trees exist in the world).
Why: Readers receive 10 percent off the treatment (reg. $145); mention DailyCandy when booking. 
When: Back Bay, Mon.-Thurs., 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; Fri., 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sat. & Sun., 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Financial District, Mon.-Thurs., 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; Fri., 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
