Drop by When Pigs Fly to pick up some fresh-sliced, home-cooked, organic artisan breads, baked daily.

Or maybe you want go for a walk, run, or bike ride on the Minuteman Bikepath.

When night comes, Davis Square crackles with excitement. Have a good time bowling while eating wood-fired, flatbread pizzas with a beer in a retro setting at Sacco’s Bowl Haven; laughing out loud at the Catalyst Comedy, a musical improv company; catching a movie or concert at Somerville Theater; or enjoying a drink, the warmth of good friends, and the excitement of live traditional Irish music at the Burren.
