Happy Marathon Party Day

The Marathon is well underway and, whether you're a runner or a spectator, we've got some post-race party options for you, because what better way to celebrate feats of incredible athleticism than by drinking and feasting?

Sure, Kickass Cupcakes is located in Davis Square, far from the race, but that isn't stopping chef Sara Ross from offering a special cake targeted at runners. The Gatorade cupcake, available all day, is a lemon cake with a Gatorade Jell-O center and lime frosting.

Tonight's Wine Monday at L'Espalier is set to be especially festive, given the restaurant's proximity to the finish line. $60 gets you a four-course dinner paired with the wines of Southern Italy a culinary marathon, if you will.

At Sel De La Terre, the bar menu will be available all day long and two buck sliders are on tap from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Raymond Southern is offering a special Marathon day menu at The Stanhope Grille, with entrees including a ham-heavy mac & cheese, and a chopped lobster salad.

Over at Vox Populi, the party started at nine this morning and will keep on going until closing time. $40 gets you in the restaurant, where there's a lunch buffet right now and passed hors d'oeuvres this afternoon. Bonus: every hour, they're giving away two tickets on JetBlue.
