This week, a Perk on the best boots you’ll ever wear: supremely refined, Italian leather ones from Peter Nappi for up to 40% off. Your other Perks: some mantel-worthy vintage cameras and VIP tickets to Aspen’s wildest après-ski weekend. Plan accordingly.
Things to do for February 28, 2013
Ramen, Danish Sweaters and Late-Night Eggs
Moving forward, the weekend will be known as weekend emeritus.
A Tiny Window for Ramen at Backbar
Two hours. You now have a two-hour ramen window every day at Backbar. Awaiting you there: a steaming bowl of their housemade daily noodles in a pork-and-duck stock, with pork belly and bamboo shoots. But there’s only about 10 orders available per day, so, you know. Chop-chop.
A New Banh Mi Enclave Rises
And while we’re on the topic of Asian deliciousness, your downtown Vietnamese lunch options just increased by one with the opening of Sa Pa. This is your new place to stock up on banh mi sandwiches and authentic pho noodle dishes during the day. No workday should be without pho.
Mexican Breakfast on Friday Night
Fast-forward to tomorrow night. You’ve just seen your ex at a bar you were sure would be safe ground. Making it all better: Rosa Mexicano’s new late-night Mexican breakfast menu. Think: fried eggs, nopales con huevos, breakfast tamales and carnitas hash. Mexican breakfast sounds very similar to yours.
Cambridge Art Born from Funk
Also on Friday: South End gallery Galatea is kicking off its new exhibit of 18 paintings from a Cambridge artist who created the works while listening to funk like Earth, Wind & Fire. You can enjoy some gratis wine and cheese, too. The perfect complement to bass-line-driven art.
And should you be keeping an eye out for end-of-season winter gear, good news. Uncle Pete’s is offering 30% to 70% off their winter stock till it’s gone. Think: Denmark-made sweaters and flannels from Norse Projects, denim from Prps and Red Wing boots. Can’t go wrong with more boot options right now.
