  • The Kirkland Tap & Trotter (Somerville): From 5:30 to 10 p.m., get a burger and a (pre-selected) beer for $16. Also available all day Sunday.
  • La Brasa (Somerville): Starting at 6 p.m. Monday, there will be wood-roasted lobster ($20) until 10 p.m. (or while supplies last), along with a variety of sides starting at $10 (potato salad, grilled sausage, steamer clams, grits, and collard pie). From 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., there will be dollar oysters.
  • Lincoln Tavern & Restaurant (South Boston): Open for brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The menu includes dishes like huevos rancheros, blueberry pancakes, and spicy chicken & waffles.
