•We are drooling profusely just thinking about the menu for Rialto’s Venetian Wine BBQ, taking place at 6:00 tonight and tomorrow. $95 gets you a four-course meal with wine pairings and those courses? They sound delicious. Call (617) 661-5050 for more details. [Rialto]

•We love UpStairs on the Square. Who else would close for ten days and then have a grand reopening? Delightful! Get into the celebratory spirit starting at 6:00. The $25 cover gets you a rum drink, passed hors d’oeuvres and small plates, dancing, and general merriment. [UpStairs on the Square]
