Five bucks. That’s how much a full year of Fast Company is going for—including unfettered access to its mobile content—on Perks. Plus, in time for spring: 25% off dapper cashmere sweaters from Christopher Fischer and up to 40% off handmade, Italian leather boots from Peter Nappi. You know what to do.
Things to do for March 07, 2013
Breakfast Poutine, Art Parties and New Gin
The weekend is glad it stayed in Cabo another week.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
