Ever feel like you're not living it up enough in this fantastic, delicious, and diverse city? After trying some of my Best Week Ever hotspots, I can guarantee you'll never complain about boredom in Boston ever again!

For a humble student at BU, Mondays mean the return to classes after the delectable delights of the weekend. To spice up your Mondays, grab dinner at Tapeo on Newbury Street. Specializing in Spanish tapas, these delicious dishes only cost $5 at the bar Sunday through Friday!
By the time Tuesday rolls around, I'm in Go Mode. Getting my hair cut always seems to dominate the top of my list! If your salary is as measly as mine, save some moolah while getting a quality cut at Bradley and Diegel on Newbury Street. Every Tuesday, they have a "model call" where they offer grossly discounted cuts so that their stylist students can learn. With cuts costing $20 and coloring from $25 and up, it's definitely worth a shot.
Ready to bust out in tune from the week's excitement so far? Round up some friends and hit up Limelight Stage and Studios in downtown Boston. With over 5,000 songs to choose from, Limelight offers an intricate stage with lighting and a backdrop. Every other Thursday features a live back-up band to help you along in your musical medleys!
Afterwards, hit up Joshua Tree in Allston - the upstairs has HD TVs to watch the game, while the downstairs thrives with 20-something-year-olds looking to get their dance on. Try a new cocktail: a Sex on the Beach is only $6 at JTree!
Cravin' some brunch but still nursin' last night's hangover? Big City in Allston offers delicious, affordable brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Help the hangover: with the order of any brunch item, Big City offers a free mimosa or bloody mary to go with your meal. Get some slow-paced enjoyment by playing at one of their numerous billiards tables.
