25 Beers and You in Newburyport

FOOD-LANTHROPY

Devouring Jambalaya for Gulf Relief

You watched the BP fiasco unfold and thought, “There must be something I can do.” Turns out that something is an all-day, all-you-can-eat gorge-a-thon of gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish and other Gulf delicacies at the Baseball Tavern’s friendly confines. Throw in some live music and raffles, and this fund-raiser for Gulf Relief doesn’t feel much like charity.

Tuesday
Drinking Tequila at Church
JALISCO

Drinking Tequila at Church

Downtown restaurant/club Church is offering you a good reason—actually, five good reasons—to embrace the sweet, sweet agave nectar. For $45, you’ll down one tequila-based cocktail and then four straight shots (añejo, reposado and two blancos) while you plow through courses like tilapia, oysters and gazpacho. Sombrero optional.

Jul 27, 5:30-10pm, $45, Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, 617-236-7600
