Things to do for November 14, 2013
Tacos for Breakfast, Whiskey for Dinner and Sinatra for Sundays
The days grow shorter, the weekend grows longer.
Most days, you walk into the Harvard Square Goorin Bros. and see hats. But some days, you walk in and see whiskey, Japanese-textile shirts from Osmium, trunk show discounts... and hats. Guess which kind of day this is.
Where to Get Hot-Dog-and-Beer Pizza
The Proper Slice on Newbury is dead. Yep. But like a pizza phoenix, it’s risen again as the Dirty Water Dough Co. And it brought with it things like a pizza topped with Fenway Franks and dough made from a specially brewed IPA. So its A-game.
This Place Has Whisky in Its Name
Whisky Saigon: a new nightclub opening in what was once the Gypsy Bar. Whisky: a brown liquor you will be consuming at its pre-opening party with attractive brunette people. Saigon: the capital of South Vietnam. Saigon is the wild card here.
Hope You’re a Morning-Taco Person
Whatever your plans for Saturday morning are, don’t change them. Not even if someone offers you 9am tacos. Not even if they’re bacon-egg-and-cheese breakfast tacos. Served from a pop-up in Union Square that only exists for three hours. Okay, change them.
Eggplant Parm and Sinatra in Back Bay
The Salty Pig. Monday through Saturday, it’s a thoroughly modern haven of charcuterie and cheese. But on Sundays, it transforms into an old-school Italian joint. The kind with red-checkered tablecloths, eggplant parmesan and a Sinatra soundtrack. If only they had some nonna walking around pinching cheeks.
