This week, we’re sending you freshly baked cookies spiked with whiskey, tequila and/or Guinness. Plus, we’re getting you and a guest out of Dodge with an amenity-laden stay at the extravagant waterfront retreat Forty 1° North in Newport, RI. (Stock up on half-price Seize sur Vingt shirts for the trip.)
Things to do for September 08, 2011
Endless Oysters, 200 Belgian Beers and Elite Squash
The weekend is ready for some footsie.
Citizen has launched a club tracking each time you sample one of their 90 whiskeys. Your reward for trying them all: a silver-banded glass engraved with your name and a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel whiskey. Don’t try to earn it this weekend.
Bad news: general admission to the Island Creek Oyster Festival on Saturday is sold out. Good news: you can still buy tickets to Friday’s event, which not only lands you access to top-tier passed cocktails, raw bar and bites, but it comes with full entrance to Saturday’s event as well. Win-win.
Crepes are: 1) a good little snack, 2) a great way to dabble in French cuisine and 3) a free treat. For three hours on Saturday, you can land gratis freshly made Nutella-and-banana crepes, as well as ham-and-cheese crepes just for walking in the door. Get your disguises ready now.
You know the old saying: “Crepes then beer, never fear.” Thus, the Belgian Beer Fest in the South End awaits you, post-crepes, with over 200 killer Belgian beers (Rochefort, Westmalle, De Dolle) and food from Waffle Cabin in Vermont. If you make it to Sunday, we’ll be seriously impressed.
If Saturday’s unbridled gluttony leaves you thinking about exercise, good news: you can watch other people doing it on Wednesday when the Squash Showdown makes its only Boston stop. Four world champions will face off in a portable plexiglass court. Obviously, you’ll want to bring your autograph book.
