Your first 2014 Perks: 1) 30% off butter-soft leather briefcases and bags from Oppermann. 2) A fully portable and damn-near-indestructible folding bike. 3) 23% off some wireless and waterproof Bluetooth-enabled earphones. Tangled cords are so 2013.
Things to do for January 03, 2014
Biscuits, Gravy and Peter O’Toole. And Boots.
A state of weekend has been declared.
Boston Has Snow. Here’s a Boot Sale.
Turns out, that white stuff outside is hard to walk in. Luckily, Ball and Buck has an arsenal of near-indestructible boots like Red Wing Iron Rangers and Danner Lights. Which has you thinking: “It would be great if those boots were suddenly up to 30% off.” Right. That.
A Beer-Heavy Comeback in the Back Bay
There’s an old story about a pub named Crossroads. According to legend, the pub closed in April, never to return again. But in the middle of a blizzard it suddenly returned, rewarding the faithful with frothy drafts of ale. Moral: you can get a beer there again. Okay, bye.
Just a Greenhouse Full of Pancakes
Let’s be honest. If you could magically be anywhere right now, it would be in a heated greenhouse full of pancakes. Oh, look, this Concord farm is inviting you to come and experience exactly that. Because they’re having a pancake breakfast. Which gives you an idea for a pancake farm.
Biscuits, Gravy and Soul Music
Tres Gatos is throwing a brunchtime listening party for the new Sharon Jones album. They’re bringing biscuits, gravy and a little blood-orange-and-rum number called the Daptonic. We believe that’s called “Easy Listening.”
Peter O’Toole. A Lot of Him.
Lawrence of Arabia. Mr. Chips. Lord Jim. We lost a lot of men when we lost Peter O’Toole. Luckily, he was a movie star, so you can find him all next week at the Brattle’s film festival tribute. There goes next week.
