This week, we’re hooking you up with something warm and Swedish: the Cantwell Jacket by Fjällräven—plus, we’re throwing in a gratis daypack. Then we’re doubling your money for rare photography starring the likes of Dylan, Madonna and Kanye. And we’re delivering mind-blowing coffee to your doorstep every two weeks.
Things to do for January 19, 2012
Models. Moonshine. Caviar. This Is Your Weekend.
The weekend is [REDACTED].
Getting V-Day Gift Ideas from Models
If you’re looking for fashion-y gift ideas for Valentine’s Day, head to local designer Samuel Vartan’s runway show and sale at the Liberty tonight. There’ll be 40% off everything from cashmere dresses to one-of-a-kind sample sale dresses. Bonus: models. Tons of models.
Wrapping Your Head Around Moonshine
Moonshine. The devil’s ether. And now, something you can tangle with for an hour after work on Friday, as Gordon’s will be hosting an “Understanding Moonshine” tasting of five cocktails, all featuring the legendary backwoods spirit. Think: Sprite, grenadine and moonshine Ted Kennedys. Mmm, moonshine.
This Weekend: Area Four Goes Brunch
Cold like this calls for a dense brunch, filled with starchy awesomeness like wood-oven-baked pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and, say, absinthe cocktails like The Antidote. You’ll find all of this at Area Four, now that their weekend brunch service starts on Saturday. Get in there.
Your first New Year’s: excellent. And now it’s time to celebrate your second, more Chinese New Year’s. Head to Tremont647 post-work on Monday for three hours of orange-liquor-flavored martinis and passed apps like Chili Poached Hake. Remember, “Happy New Year” in Chinese is 新年快樂.
Caviar and Bubbly on a Wednesday
By the middle of next week, you’ll be craving the little things in life. Like four kinds of bubbly and Wellfleet oysters. And, okay, maybe some American paddlefish caviar. All of which you’ll get at this two-hour free-for-all at Sonsie. Just don’t tell your Occupy buddies.
