Say goodbye to your New Year’s resolutions and hello to bliss at some of the Hub’s best addresses for excess



Sitting around and watching sports probably wasn’t at the top of your resolutions list, but if you’re going to do it, do it in style. The Draft Room (pictured) at the new Seaport flagship for the bowling, games and dining emporium offers 40 draft lines and three 12-foot HD LED screens for taking in all the action.
