"Mix It Up Mondays" Is Shaking Things Up Downtown This Winter!
What is Mix It Up Mondays?
Every Monday in February and the first two weeks of March, participating downtown restaurants will either create a special dish to be served exclusively on Monday evenings--or highlight a reduced-price, featured menu item to be paired with a Belvedere Vodka-based cocktail.
Developed by the Downtown Boston BID in partnership with Boston Magazine, Mix It Up Mondays includes some of the hottest downtown nightspots:
49 Social, Artisan Bistro, Avenue One, Avery Bar, Back Deck, Blu, Good Life, Fajitas & 'Ritas, Max & Dylans, Petit Robert Central, Salvatore's, Sip Wine Bar & Kitchen, and Woodward.
