Can't contain your excitement for the season premiere to your own home? Stop "Mad Men"-ing yourself on amctv.com, step away from the computer, and check out these swinging local events this Sunday.
- With its hip decor and old-school vibe, Lucky's feels like the sort of place Don might stop for an Old Fashioned. Take in the show between Sinatra Sunday sets from the Al Vega Trio at this alluringly unmarked bar. There will be Utz chips and Heinekens to go around. Talk about setting the mood — the mood for love, that is. 7 p.m. Lucky's Lounge. 21+. 617-357-5825, luckyslounge.com
- Party like the Drapers and Roger Sterling at Tavolo's retro fete celebrating the premiere. Snack on deviled eggs, pigs in a blanket, and other classic bar bites while sipping cocktails like the Joan (a Tom Collins), the Betty (a vodka gimlet), and the Salvatore (a Campari Squeeze) during the show. 10 p.m. Tavolo. No cover. 617-822-1918, tavolopizza.com
- If you've been trolling the Garment District or your local thrift store for that perfect pencil skirt, pocket square, or skinny tie, Noir is a great place to show off your finds. The two sharpest dressers at the hot spot's shindig Sunday will win breakfast for two at Henrietta's Table. All that primping is sure to leave you parched, no? Try a themed drink — a Betty's Bubbles (Bombay Sapphire, lemon juice, simple syrup, and prosecco) or a Madison Avenue (Bombay gin, sloe gin, and lemon juice), perhaps? — as you watch the drama unfold. 9 p.m. Noir. No cover. 21+. 617-661-8010, noir-bar.com/news
