Things to do for July 21, 2011
Kung Fu, Tapas and the Closing of Saint
The weekend goes jogging in 100-degree weather.
Happy Hour Sushi in the Back Bay
If there’s any time of year to enjoy the fresh summer air with a plate of raw fish, this would be it. As such, Haru is now offering 10 after-work bites on their patio, like California rolls, spicy tuna rolls, spring rolls and edamame, for three to six bucks. Eat quick. It’s hot out.
Saint Closes. You Get a Party.
Like college and Quantum Leap, all good things must end. And now that Saint is in its last hours of operation, they’re doing one final four-day blowout party this weekend, with dance-offs, the return of crowd-favorite cocktails and a giant countdown till the doors shut for good. Tick-tock...
You’re no stranger to wine tastings. But you can’t recall the last one paired with authentic Cantonese dishes cooked on-site in woks, martial arts flicks and a live in-store kung fu demonstration. If you go to North Andover one time this summer, it would be for this.
Tapas and Tequila. On a Boat.
The sea just calls to you on Mondays. So if you hit the tapas-and-tequila party that Zócalo Cocina is throwing on the Spirit of Boston on Monday, you’ll land four courses of tapas, tequila samples and tunes from two DJs while you cruise around the harbor. Tip: stay on the boat.
Your Tuesday Tart and Mojito Fix
A lot has been said of the recent heat wave. What hasn’t gotten sufficient publicity is the temperature-restorative powers of pairing five summer cocktails (think: wild berry mojitos, St-Germain sparklers) with rich desserts (lemon tarts, crème brûlée). There will also be A/C.
