Written by Emily Hopkins. Posted in Scout Picks


Three days, three chances to eat, drink and party at Super Bowl events around Cambridge.

Friday, 1/30 
Super Bowl Weekend at Lord Hobo
All Weekend, No Cover
Lord Hobo
92 Hampshire St.
Lord Hobo made Eater’s nationwide list of 19 Awesome Craft Beer Destinations for Super Bowl Weekend, and we’d be remiss to leave them off of our collection of football-themed events in the area. Kick off your Super Bowl weekend here – with 43 taps, many specifically designated for New England-area breweries, there’s no better place to show off your Pats pride. They’ll also be dishing out Seahawks and Patriots-themed apps and entrees. They’ll also be offering “deflated” prices.

Super Bowl Sunday: a great day for sports, and an even better day to indulge in beer and foods fit for a linebacker. Harvard Square restaurants, bars and stores are going all-out, offering taco deals, tons of chicken wings, and savory sweets, as well as as catering options and party platters for the home crowds.

Park Restaurant & Bar (59 JFK St.)

PARK will be showing the game on a large projection screen and serving updated takes on fan-favorite New England staples like deep fried crispy mussels, ginger BBQ pulled pork and baja fish tacos. Special menu items are just $5 and start at 5 p.m.

Legal Seafoods (20 University Rd.)

Souper Bowl Special: What’s a Super Bowl party without the clam chowdah? In honor of our man Tom Brady’s 6th trip to the Superbowl, get six “souper” bowls of clam chowder for just $12. Keep everyone at your party warm and full with this hearty New England favorite.

We Sent a “Prez” Release to Barack Obama

Written by Emily Cassel. Posted in Community, Politics

barack obamaEveryone here at Scout Cambridge freaked out a little bit last month when President Barack Obama called into Deval Patrick’s radio show. “Governor, this is Barack Obama, formerly of Somerville,” the Commander in Chief intoned. “I’ve got a few complaints.”

Of course, he was kidding; the prez really just wanted to congratulate the outgoing governor on two successful terms. Still, we thought we’d take this opportunity to tell this one-time Harvard University grad student about some of the impressive changes that have taken place in Somerville and Cambridge since he lived here back in the late ’80s. So we bundled up a few of our latest issues and shipped them off to the White House along with a note telling Obama about what’s going on in Cambridge and Somerville. If you can’t humble-brag to the leader of the free world, who can you humble-brag to?
