DotOut Midweek Meltdown | Nov. 5

DotOut Midweek Meltdown | Nov. 5

What exactly happens at a Midweek Meltdown? We find a spot at the bar, plunk ourselves down and wait for folks to straggle in! Some come earlier than 6:30pm (that’s OK, too!) and some come closer to 8:30 (again, totally OK!). We make introductions where needed, catch up on what’s new, who’s new, how was your day.

Who comes to a Midweek Meltdown? Everyone! Seriously! Women, men, couples looking for an easy night out, partner out of town, folks new to Dorchester, longtime residents. I know — it looks like we’re all good friends when you first walk-in, but after one or two midweeks, you’ll be a regular, too!

First Wednesday of Every Month • Beginning at 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Savin Bar & Grill
