Easter: a time of lavish brunches, pastel blazers and, of course, caviar Easter eggs—and we’re hooking you up for 30% off the non-Eastering price. (We’re also filling your Easter basket with booze-infused candy.) Plus: up to 39% off your new spring shirts. (It’s BYO pants.)
Things to do for April 14, 2011
Cheesebread, Sexy Nurses and Blackadder Live
The weekend is growing its playoff Van Dyke.
Brazilian Breakfast Treats Now Available
Inman Square. Something about it calls up your hunger for the delights of Brazil. And good news: with Bom Café now occupying the old Muqueca space, you can get Brazilian-style snacks like cheesebreads, Coxinas (chicken and cheese patties) and strong Brazilian coffee when on the go. With your Brazilian wife.
Nothing gets a Friday off to a roaring start like a couple of beers with buddies. Getting it extra-going this week: the Boston Beer Summit, featuring live music, limitless pours of over 200 beers (Long Trail, Cisco and Cape Cod Beer) and an implicit challenge to try all of them.
Your passion for biting British comedy: boundless. So you’d give almost anything to see a live version of the immortal BBC series Blackadder starring Hugh Laurie and Rowan Atkinson. Next best thing: a live repertory production of the series in Charlestown. Yes, the humor will still be dry.
Costumed Boozing in Spring
Around this time of year, you forlornly eyeball your secret closet full of Halloween outfits. Well, forlorn no more: there’s a costumed Halloween-in-spring pub crawl through the bars of Boylston and Newbury on Saturday, and with it, your Marty McFly outfit shall rise again. Or Indy Jones. Choose... wisely.
French Toast-ing in the Back Bay
Another Sunday, and another brunch option emerges. This one comes via Tico, which is adding its Vanilla French Toast, NYC bagels with smoked salmon and Spicy Duck Confit and Green Chile Hash with poached eggs to your roster of Sunday options. That roster is looking pretty good these days.
