Pub Nights

What is it?

SAGE socials are held once a month regularly throughout the year from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM at the Sunset Cantina. Generally, they take place on the first and third Fridays of each month, but the schedule may vary. Please check this page or the calendar for the most up-to-date schedule.

At SAGE socials, all graduate engineering students, faculty, and staff are invited to enjoy:

  • One-dollar beers, margaritas, cocktails, and wines!
  • Free food: Wings, nachos, quesadillas, and mixed empanadas!

Please bring one-dollar bills.  If you have questions, email SAGE (

IDs and Guests

Remember to bring a valid ID, such as a driver’s license, MA identification, or passport. Also, please have your BU ID when you come. Only members of the BU community are allowed into the pub. Each person with a BU ID is allowed to bring one non-BU person into the BU Pub.

SAGE Sticker

First-time or otherwise infrequent attendees should ensure that a SAGE sticker is attached to the BU ID to confirm SAGE membership for pub nights. To get your SAGE sticker, head to the Graduate Programs Office (GPO). The GPO is located in ERB. Inside the first-floor lobby from the main entrance, take a left through the double doors and head down to the end of the hallway. It’s the last door on your right (Room 114).


Sunset Cantina is located at 916 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215. You can take the 57/57A, Green Line or BU Shuttle to get there. It is about a 15 minute walk from Cummington Mall.

Drink Tickets

Tickets can be purchased for $1 each from the host. You may only buy a maximum of two tickets at a time. If you have a guest present with you in the ticket line, and the host judges it to be reasonable, then you may purchase extra tickets at that time for your guest.

Cost of Drinks

The ticket is worth $8.99, which covers most beers, margaritas, mixed drinks and wine, and includes your tip – you may tip the bartender separately at your discretion. You will have to pay the difference for drinks over this amount.

Free Food

Communal platters of free food will be brought out regularly to the tables out front that are reserved for SAGE.
