A Concord tradition that is well worth preserving: the Christmas Eve carol sing in Monument Square. Bring the whole family; it doesn't last long, but you’ll see friends and neighbors as you huddle around the town tree on Monday evening. Carol books are available. The singing starts at 7:15 p.m. and ends about a half hour later.

Looking way down the road to summer, we hear super chef Jason Bond is bringing a second Bondir restaurant to Walden St. in the space once occupied by Walden Grille. The original Bondir is in Cambridge. The website Eater Boston had the post, adding that Bond’s new endeavor is still in the planning stages.
