Celebrating the 4th in Brookline? Get to the Regal Beagle where they’re serving a few star spangled specials in honor of Independence Day. Enjoy classic summery foodstuffs like watermelon and grilled corn salad or a pulled pork sandwich and choose from red, white or blue shandies. Check out the rest of the specials before for more than a few good reasons to skip the Esplanade festivities and watch the fireworks from a distance. Call 617-739-5151 for more info and a reservation.
