Things to do for December 09, 2010
Blackjack, Schnitzel and Fancy Meats in Southie
The weekend has the fire, now it just needs some chestnuts.
Scotch and Blackjack at Mr. Sid
Thursdays are for anticipating Fridays. But they’re also for billiards, gratis apps, blackjack and a scotch-stocked open bar. This is exactly what’s happening at Mr. Sid tonight. Plus, there’ll be a bona fide World Series of Poker dealer to answer all your Texas Hold’em questions. (No, this doesn’t include questions about Jennifer Tilly.)
Your Shot at Locke-Ober Lunch
Upon hitting their 135th year in existence, Locke-Ober had one thing on the brain: lunch. (You’ll understand when you turn 135.) So from now until Christmas, you can enjoy limited-edition lunch service with items like Braised Short Ribs, Weiner Schnitzel and escargot. Because snails are timeless.
Here’s a reason to try to survive the frigid cold this weekend: the Island Creek Oyster Bar now has brunch. Think Lobster Omelets, BBQ Glazed Shrimp, Grafton Cheddar Burgers and a monstrous brunch raw bar. That should be enough to pull you from under your bearskin duvet.
Toro Turns Five. You Get to Party.
When you turned five, you got a dinner featuring Warm Pickled Quail, Razor Clams with Bacon and Duck Liver Parfait. Oddly enough, this is also what Toro is doing for their five-year anniversary, complete with a Next Iron Chef finalist in the kitchen. There'll even be an after-party. No bouncy castle though.
Eating Specialty Meats in Southie
The old Southie: parochialism, deep-rooted Irish heritage, the ghost of Whitey Bulger. The new Southie: all that, plus a killer new gourmet grocer open this Monday, featuring everything from fresh organic meats and charcuterie to homemade condiments and artisan cheeses. Don’t worry, the throngs of double-parked cars will still be everywhere.
