Tamir Kalifa for The Boston Globe
Yes, we all know how you feel about Mondays. But during the month of February, there is a reason to look forward to the start of the week. The Blue Room in Kendall Square is introducing Spaghetti Western Mondays.
From 9 p.m.-1 a.m. on Feb. 4, 11, 18, and 25, the restaurant will offer up some action-filled adrenaline on screen by showing a Spaghetti Western, or an Italian Western film, every week. That's not all -- to add some local flavor, Boston-area bartenders will duel and serve up their best specialty cocktails with the help of Bully Boy Whiskey.
Don't worry, you won't be drinking on an empty stomach. The Blue Room chef Robert Grant will create bar bites for each showing. Cocktails and bites will be served à la carte and range from $9-$13.
So there you have it -- it's time to perk up about Mondays with the help of westerns and whiskey.
Here is a list of bartenders and films for each Monday:
Feb. 4: "A Fistful of Dollars" with bartenders John Henderson (Scholars) and Tyler Wang (No.9 Park)
Feb.11: "For a Few Dollars More" with bartenders Katie Emmerson (The Hawthorne) and Fred Yarm (Cocktail Virgin Slut)
Feb. 18: "The Good the Bad and the Ugly" with bartenders Noon Inthasuwan (Moksa) and Sam Treadway (Backbar)
Feb. 25: "Once Upon a Time in the West" with bartenders Evan Harrison (Brick & Mortar) and Ted Kilpatrick (No. 9 Park)
The Blue Room is located in One Kendall Square in Cambridge. If you make it out, be sure to check out free s'mores at Belly Wine Bar next door.
