It’s huge. People are tweeting about it. Its every move is being tracked by those obsessed by its sheer power.
Yes, we’re talking about National Waffle Week. And here’s your sit-down dinner to celebrate it...
Presenting the Black Tie Waffle Dinner, a one-night formal affair celebrating the glory that is Waffle Week, going down a week from Thursday at Stella in the South End.
As far as pseudo-holiday observances go, National Waffle Week has always been your favorite (followed by your other favorite: Banned Books Week).
You’ll want to start by reserving a spot for you and a date (preferably someone without a gluten allergy), and get ready to have your favorite suit, tux or formal black-tie attire cleaned and pressed (which should be easy ever since you built a dry cleaners into the east wing).
Then, you two will show up on that Thursday and claim your place, joining the other waffle enthusiasts present for a four-course feast featuring different interpretations of the star dish. Think: Harlem-style chicken and waffles, braised short rib with polenta waffles and tomato-cucumber gazpacho with basil pizzelle (call it waffles by way of Rome).
Of course, no meal of breakfast-ish delight should be without booze, so they’ve paired each dish with a fitting beverage, be it a vintage cabernet, Belgian beer or even a gingerbread martini.
Martinis. The ideal breakfast food drink.
