Things to do for October 31, 2013
Science Cocktails, Mariachi Bands and a Costumed Lamb Roast
The weekend gives out the best candy.
French Things. Edible French Things.
Patisserie on Newbury, a new outpost of baguette sandwiches, pastries and other thoroughly French provisions, just opened in Back Bay. So now you can pick up some truffle mousse and brie for trick-or-treaters tonight. One day, they’ll appreciate brie.
Time for Some Skeletons and Mezcal
Día de los Muertos: that’s Spanish for “Day of the Dead.” Mezcal: that’s Mexican. So it makes sense to mark the former with flights and cocktails of the latter at Russell House Tavern. The oysters and shrimp tostadas won’t hurt either. They’re non-hurting foods.
Science Is Better with Candy and Rum
Tomorrow night, some of MIT’s greatest minds are going to share their projects with you. Projects like robotic fish and exoplanet research. And while they’re doing that, you’re going to drink Dark and Stormys and eat candy. Because... we’re not really sure. Halloween, probably.
Ways this event is like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory: it’s organized by an actual chocolate factory. Ways this event is not like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory: it includes Latin food trucks, mariachi bands and gratis tequila. A fair trade-off for not having Oompa-Loompas.
Lamb Roasts Are Better in Costume
November is a month of cherished traditions. Like marking the 362-day countdown to next Halloween by feasting on grilled lamb in costume. Okay, so Tavern Road totally made this up. Still, not a bad idea.
