Alicia Keys at the Grammy Awards at Staples Center on February 10.

This post is part of a daily series giving you tips and recommendations on what to do in the Boston area.

Here's a double treat: Not only will you enjoy the Grammy award-winning singer's soulful voice, rising star Miguel will be on hand to kick off the concert with his silky smooth tunes. Luckily, tickets are still available (but probably not for long) for this concert, so ditch any plans you made for the night-- we think a live rendition of "Girl on Fire" may be worth it. Check prices and ticket availability. Address: Agganis Arena, 925 Commonwealth Ave., Boston.

We know Waltham isn't in Boston, but it's not too far, either. Make the small trek for a wide range of food by Waltham's popular restaurants, and taste fine wine while you're at it. Miss Massachusetts Tayler Kinzler and Kiss 108's Matt Siegel from "Matty in the Morning" are among the featured guests. Visit the website for ticket information. 6 -9 p.m. at the Waltham Westin Hotel, 70 3rd Ave, Waltham.

Even though Kendall Square restaurant Area Four's food truck hit the streets last week, we're still hearing a lot of buzz about it. Haven't checked it out yet? The 60 degree weather should be ample reason to spend some time outdoors during your lunch break, and a great excuse to try a piadina , an Italian flatbread sandwich. Located: Follow @a4truck

Not in the mood for Italian? Take a look at other food truck choices that will satisfy most taste buds.
