Things to do for March 07, 2013

The Weekender

Breakfast Poutine, Art Parties and New Gin

The weekend is glad it stayed in Cabo another week.

Thursday
Friday
Pop Culture’s Dark Heart. For Sale.
HOT LOT

Pop Culture’s Dark Heart. For Sale.

Snowstorms: sometimes they make you think about art. And sometimes they make you think about going on dates to art shows. So consider Lot F Gallery’s exhibition of a solo artist’s work tomorrow night, featuring paintings that reveal the dark underbelly of pop culture. Let’s hope Maggie Simpson’s skeletons are finally exposed.

Mar 8, 7-11pm, no cost, Lot F Gallery, 145 Pearl St #4, 617-426-1021

Sunday
Brunching with Roxy’s Grilled Cheese
MORNING MELT

Brunching with Roxy’s Grilled Cheese

If the white stuff on the ground has snowshoeing near Cleveland Circle on your Sunday docket, there will be brunch nearby. By way of Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, serving brisk-weather fuel like the Mighty Rib Melt (with a fried egg and hollandaise sauce) and even breakfast poutine. Say it again: breakfast poutine.

Tuesday
Beer and Cheese = Heaven
NICE PAIR

Beer and Cheese = Heaven

Life is complicated. Luckily, beer and cheese aren’t. Pigalle is celebrating this truism with a five-course dinner that pairs the two on Tuesday. Picture: sirloin and potatoes au gratin with a double stout, and a brie-foam amuse-bouche with a German pilsner. You love it when Germany and France mingle.

Wednesday
Landing French-Mexican at an Irish Pub
UNITED NATIONS

Landing French-Mexican at an Irish Pub

Speaking of France, its flavors are being mashed up with those of Mexico in Olde Magoun’s Saloon every Wednesday this month. Think: red-wine-braised chicken coq au vin enchiladas with salsa mole, and seared foie gras with tortillas. Proving foie gras goes with anything.

Trying Out GrandTen’s New Baby
GINNED UP

Trying Out GrandTen’s New Baby

Good news: Southie’s GrandTen Distilling has created a special reserve gin that’s aged in American oak barrels. Better news: they’re having their friends at BackBar feature it in classic cocktails (gimlets, martinis, etc.) on Wednesday. There will also be a gratis punch. Now it’s a party.

Mar 13, 4pm-midnight, cash bar, BackBar, 9 Sanborn Ct, Somerville, 617-718-0249
