•Tomatoes are justthissecond starting to come into their true season and, to celebrate, 75 Chestnut is having a Tomato Fest all week, featuring tomato-based additions to the menu such as rack of lamb on char-grilled tomato-arugula salad and tomato-thyme sorbet. Should you wish to make a reservation to sample these lycopene-filled goodies, you may call (617) 227-2175. [75 Chestnut]
•There is plenty of fun to be had at tonight’s Summer Celebration at Hampshire House. For a mere Hamilton, you have access to a $1 hot dog stand, a complimentary beverage and cash bar, a special frozen drink bar, and a clothing contest. All proceeds go to the MASS Soldiers Legacy Fund. The party starts at 6:30 and tickets may be purchased by calling (617) 854-7463. [Hampshire House]
•Yo ho ho! UpStairs on the Square hosts a rum tasting tonight at 6:30. $38 gets you tastings of several rums paired with “tropical treats.” If all the spirits have got you feeling spirited, at 8:30 there will be a bossa nova band and dancing ($15 for non-diners, free for those eating). Call (617) 864-1933 to save your spot at either or both. [UpStairs on the Square]
