Yay!!! Hooray!!! Summertime is upon us once again. And for many a Boston area eating establishment, this means that the outdoor patio is now open. In honor of this occasion, I would like to point out some of the local eateries where one can enjoy a warm pleasant summer evening feasting on tasty cuisine and better yet catching some of Boston’s best world music acts at the same time. If you’re looking for reggae music, then Shenannigans’ Reggae Fridays is the place to be. Start your weekend off to the island sounds of Continuous Reggae at Shenannigans Irish Pub & Restaurant. Who says you can’t enjoy great reggae in an Irish pub atmosphere? What’s special about this particular patio, located very near to the Boston harbor, is that you can actually enjoy the aroma of salt sea air as you dine … a definite added plus. As far as the menu goes, of course as you would expect, you can sample such Irish favorites as a BLT made with real Irish bacon, Bangers, Mash, and Beans (Irish sausage and beans with mashed potatoes and gravy), or Shepherd’s Pie (specially seasoned ground beef, veggies, and mashed potatoes topped with gravy). In addition, it just so happens that this establishment’s eclectic taste in music is reflected in their menu as well. Take a look and you will discover various ethnically inspired dishes such as, Quesadillas, Asian Salmon, Chicken Curry, Chicken Teriyaki Pineapple and more. And if you’re in the mood for American cuisine, well they’ve got you covered there too. So, the next time you’re in the mood for reggae, just head on over to Shennanigans and breathe in the salt sea air, indulge in a warm summer’s evening, and, best of all, treat yourself to some fabulous world music.


In addition to the happenings at Shenannigans’ Reggae Fridays, there’s lot’s of great world music to be heard all around the Boston area in combination with the warm summer evening ambience of patio dining … Aaaaaah yes. Just check out these additional restaurant locations from previous posts: Athenian Corner, Bella Luna Milky Way, Green Briar, the Basha Cafe, the Precinct, The Fireplace, Cafe Luna, the Red Fez, Kasbah, and the Half Door. I love summer!!! I also happen to enjoy spending a good part of it out on a restaurant patio, but add world music to the mix? The dining experience just doesn’t get any better than that!
