The Monday Report: Hot For Teacher

The humidity over the weekend has been deathly. But look on the bright side. If you have children, chances are they’re back in school. Amen!


Back Bay: A sleek, new lounge named Minibar will open in a Back Bay hotel by the end of September. We’re not sure which hotel it is, but with the current surge of popularity in other Boston hotel bars, we think following this trend is a good idea. [Craigslist]

Lowell: Brookline’s Village Smokehouse is expanding to the lovely town of Lowell, a Massachusetts hotspot during the Industrial Revolution. [Craigslist]

South Boston: South End spot Franklin Cafe will open a sister location in the Allele South Boston Condominium Development. With the West Broadway neighborhood currently in a commercial boom and Franklin Cafe’s loyal following, we bet this new spot will be quite popular. [The Boston Condo Blog]


Seaport: Eastern Pier is confirmed to be closed as of this weekend. Word on the web is that they’ll be turning it into a beer garden, so get your backhoes ready. [Chowhound]
