Some Like It Hot

We take a blowtorch to the Polar Vortex

The Polar Vortex. Sounds like a bad disaster flick.

We'd take Sharknado over another one of those any day of the week. 

Don't bother checking the forecast anymore, just warm up to these hot tips for staying warm.

CHAT
It's a fact: any conversation sounds infinitely better when done next to a roaring fire. So it only makes sense that The Fireplace in Brookline plays host to a variety of informal talks on subjects like fine wine, single malt scotch, and cocktails as part of their Fireside Chat series every Saturday afternoon. Between the fireplace and the whiskey selection, you should stay plenty toasty. 
Saturdays 4p. 1634 Beacon St., Washington Square (617-975-1900). $25-30.

SOAK
When it's this cold, it's stay-in-bed-all-day-with-your-fling weather. Better yet, get-a-hot tub-with-your-fling weather. That's the forecast at Inman Oasis, where you can reserve a Japanese-style wooden tub and submerge your winter blues in 100 degree water for 30, 45, or 60 minutes. Then, back to bed.
243 Hampshire St., Inman Square (617-491-0176)

SIP
What is so sexy about a woman sipping hot chocolate on a cold day? We're not sure, and we don't care: it just is. That makes a cup of dark, milk, or white hot chocolate from L.A. Burdick Chocolate Shop the perfect winter accessory to pick up for your date on a weekend Harvard Square stroll. Plus, it's a lot cheaper than more perfume.
52 Brattle St., Harvard Square (617-491-4340)
