Statistics have shown that Monday is the least popular night of the week for Americans to get out of the house for a meal or drink. This study means that many businesses-should they be open on a Monday-offer plenty of specials to their customers in order to get them through those doors and looking at that drink or dinner menu. Boston is no exception to this rule. So here are some of the city’s best Monday Night Specials.
