Things to do for December 12, 2013
The Bruins Ice Girls, All-Day Brunch and Eating Like Buddy the Elf
The weekend never drops below freezing.
Just a Big Win for Lunch
Beat Hotel has unveiled a crazy new thing called “lunch.” And get this—it’s a meal between breakfast and dinner. Okay, so they didn’t come up with that part. But serving French-dip pork sandwiches and pulled-lamb nachos in the afternoon isn’t a bad idea. Not bad at all.
Things to know about Kiton:
1) They’re master suit tailors from Naples.
2) They made Clooney’s suit from Ocean’s Thirteen.
3) They’ll be on hand tomorrow at Louis Boston to take your measurements.
Maybe bring someone who owes you a present.
The Boston Harbor Hotel is debuting an ice-skating rink under its rotunda this Saturday. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s free to enter, has a bar and involves a performance by the Boston Bruins Ice Girls. So, pretty much ideal ice-skating conditions.
Incoming: Nine Hours of Brunch
Commonwealth now has brunch. It lasts nine hours. Because you’re not going anywhere fast after chicken-fat biscuits and apple-pie-jam donut holes. And it’s called “Marky Mark & the Funky Brunch.” Just don’t call it “Matt Damon.”
Dinner, Courtesy of Buddy the Elf
Reel Chefs, that tasting-menu-and-a-movie thing at Theatre 1, is taking on a classic of culinary cinema: Elf. Yes, there will be Buddy’s famous pasta dish in the form of spaghetti with maple-syrup-cured bacon. And yes, they’ll have the World’s Best Cup of Coffee. They did it.
