HUBWIDE — It's Marathon Monday, and whether you're entertaining visitors from out of town or you are an out-of-town visitor yourself, here's our round-up of all of our most popular maps and guides to help you plan your Boston dining. [EBOS]

COOLIDGE CORNER — As reported earlier this month, the Brookline location of Corrib Pub closed, and a new Irish pub called Grainne O'Malley's was slated to quickly open in its place. And now it is open, Boston Restaurant Talk reports. [BRT]

BACK BAY — As planned, Australia-inspired coffee and meat pie shop Cuppacoffee is opening its third location today at 699 Boylston St., which happens to be right by the Marathon's finish line. [Twitter]

CHESTNUT HILL — And also as planned, a New York-based juice shop called Juice Press opened at The Street over the weekend. [EBOS]

UNION SQUARE — Journeyman is accepting reservations for its planned reopening later this week after a bit of renovations. The changes come with the addition of a new, more casual concept on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, as previously reported, and now the website indicates that the new concept will be called Heat. "Same chef. Same ingredients. Same wood fire. Louder music. Dinner is a la carte," promises the website. The more familiar version of Journeyman, albeit with the previously reported changes to the kitchen and philosophy, reopens on April 21 with nine-course tastings for $90-$115, depending on whether you prepay or not, and Heat debuts on April 25.

ALSO UNION SQUARE — Juliet has just added dinner service. It's currently offered from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Reservations and a menu are available on the website. Can't wait until Thursday? Tomorrow (April 19), there's a special dinner "based on the flavors and traditions of the Italian Market neighborhood of Philadelphia." Expect a Rocky soundtrack and dishes like eggplant caponata, frutti di mare, and baked stuffed shells. Half of the dinner proceeds will go towards Juliet co-owner Josh Lewin's efforts to support the American Cancer Society, and one month after the dinner, he'll be fighting in a USA Boxing sanctioned charity event, Haymakers for Hope, raising more money for the cause.

SEAPORT DISTRICT — The former Anthony's Pier 4 site was on fire early this morning. [BBJ]
