CAMBRIDGE / CONCORD — While Bondir is celebrating its third anniversary in Cambridge tonight, it's also celebrating its...zero anniversary?...out in Concord, where tonight is the official opening night. The 100-seat space is much larger than its Cambridge sibling, so diners can expect a somewhat larger menu as well. [Boston.com]
BACK BAY — The Loews Hotel is undergoing renovations, including the closure of its Irish pub, Cuffs, which will be offering some of its old specials at their original prices until its last day on December 17th. It will be replaced with a new bar in the spring. [BRT]
