    If you're looking for some good eats, consider Red Bones for BBQ, The Painted Burro for good Mexican or Diesel Cafe for a quick and killer sandwich. Once you're done there, hit JP Licks for dessert!

    A nice little area to sit and watch the goings-on; there are many fantastic bars and restaurants in the immediate area, including Redbones, The Burren, and Johnny D's.

    A game of pool at Diesel Cafe, drinks & eats at Redbones (the buffalo shrimp are amazing), followed by ice cream at JP Licks makes for an epic evening!

    For ice cream, skip the line at JP Licks and go across the street to Somerville Theatre for Richardson's Ice Cream at half the price and double the size. Seeing a movie is awesome but optional. :)

    Another great area to check out while in Boston. (Turn right when leaving the station toward the small theater). Bars, food, shops, wahooo!

    Now that the weather has warmed up you can spend the day watching the social parade from a ringside seat in Davis Sq. Boston Burger Company and JP licks are right there when you need some refueling

    On a nice summer day sit outside with a drink and take in the music that's sure to be present courtesy of a local musician looking to make a buck

    Want late night Chinese? Golden Light (in College Ave). Open to 3am and the food is great (for a 2am fix).

    I don't condone jaywalking per se, but... if you wait for walk signals, it just shows you're a Davis square n00b.
