UNION / DAVIS / ASSEMBLY ROW, SOMERVILLE — It's the end of an era (that actually ended 40-plus years ago): The final season of Mad Men premiers this Sunday on AMC. Somerville bars The IndependentFoundry on Elm, and River Bar are all offering a different, special take on classic cocktails to mark the occasion. The drinks are available all day this Sunday, so embrace your inner Don Draper and toss a few back. (But do your best to leave other 1960s cultural themes the show explores, like sexism and racism, in the past.) [Press Release]
