It’s not delivery. It’s... fresh Maine lobster, soaked in lemon herbed butter, baked on artisanal flatbread—and we’re airmailing it to you. Plus, we’d like to keep you warm on a cool, breezy night by wrapping you in the softest, lightest Christopher Fischer Cashmere—for 40% off. Lobster bib optional.
Things to do for May 19, 2011
Red Velvet Pancakes, Martial Arts and Sandwiches
The weekend is at full strength.
Breakfasting in Kendall Square
Kendall Square: the hot new hood. Making it hotter: the long-awaited Area Four, which just opened their bakery/coffee shop. This’ll be the place to go when sausage breakfast sandwiches on housemade English muffins, coffee and cookies are on the mind. Which tends to be often.
Your New Southie Lunch Spot
Meanwhile in Southie, grocer American Provisions has decided you need some new lunch sandwiches like their Italian (prosciutto, mortadella, salami, provolone) and Boursin & the Beast (roast beef, boursin cheese, arugula). Imagine eating in a Shaw’s, only, you know, way better.
Thanks to endless viewings of the 1993 martial arts classic Only the Strong, you’ve got some mean capoeira moves. Meaner than yours: the real-deal capoeira students and masters performing to live music tomorrow. This is South American dance-fighting at its finest.
Lolita Brings the Brunch
You’ve already spent several Friday nights swimming in tequila at Lolita. Now, you can spend your Saturday mornings there, too, with a new brunch menu dishing out Red Velvet Pancakes and Cinnamon Bun French Toast. Feel free to wash it down with a few bottles of Dom.
Like whiskey and Wheaties, sake goes great with Sunday nights. Even better is when the sake sommelier from O Ya leads you through a tasting of multiple sakes (sparkling, unfiltered, crisp) over small bites of melon, chicken and kimchi. Remember this phrase: “Domo arigato.”
