There’s chocolate. And then there’s chocolate—made by a guy who’s won seven Blue Ribbons (France’s highest award for professional chocolatiers), which is what we’re getting you. Then we’re hooking you up with eye-catching pop-art prints—including the opportunity to create your own Warhol. Plus: your very own wardrobe butler.
Things to do for April 05, 2012
Epic Burlesque, Cape Cod and New Coffee
The weekend stuffs a mean shellfish.
Hey. Got your text. And the answer is: yes, there is a three-day burlesque expo kicking off Friday with a burlesque revue, continuing Saturday with a burlesque competition and concluding Sunday with a showcase of rising burlesque talent. No word on a burlesque Easter egg hunt.
You could use a few laughs. Enter: the Black Comedy show at the Davis Square Theatre on Friday. The theater is connected to Saloon, which means after catching the local jokesmiths, you can shake off the giggles next door over bourbon and meat platters. Laughter = meat cravings.
If the Cape is calling this weekend, head to Falmouth for a showcase of stuffed quahogs (think: chorizo and clams), with you as judge. There’ll also be a DJ and a raffle for lobster rolls the size of small footballs. Which is as small as you go for lobster rolls.
Dwelltime Coffee Opens
As a self-admitted coffee snob, you have no qualms making special trips to procure a stellar cup of java. Well, good news: boutique coffeehouse Dwelltime opens on Saturday, bringing beans from a local roaster and authentic Italian espresso machinery to Cambridge. Not to mention your mornings.
Floridian Foodstuffs in Inman Square
Breaking: the Florida Keys are still really far away. So head to the East Coast Grill on Monday for a one-night offering of Keys-ian drinks (rum runners, mojitos) and dishes (rum-BBQ shrimp tacos). They’ll even have de-shelled, octopus-y hot cracked conch. Chances of hearing the ocean: slim.
