No places for a self-respecting metrosexual to hang out, have a stogie, take a shvitz, or get a straight-razor shave? Nowhere to stock up the bar or the grill? Well, man up. We’ll guide you to manly money clips and cufflinks, cigars and scally caps. Where to work out like you mean it, check out cool cars, even take some swings in Fenway.
