Things to do for January 16, 2014
Donut Delivery and BYOB Board Gaming
The weekend has an excellent bedside manner.
Fried Chicken and Cubanos in JP
The bad news: you still can’t buy Cuban cigars. The good news: you just got another mom-and-pop joint to feed you pressed Cubano sandwiches, fried chicken and every manner of plantain in Jamaica Plain. That rhymed.
Not Much, Just a Board Game Café
Chess, espresso and tuxedoed gingerbread men. Sometimes you need all three at once. Enter: Knight Moves, a handsome new Brookline café that also happens to be filled with board games. And they’re BYOB. As in bring your own beer. They already have backgammon.
Union Square Donuts Delivers Now
Union Square Donuts. The “donuts” part is delicious. The “Union Square” part is hard to get to. But now on Thursdays and Fridays, they’ll be delivering signature donuts like bourbon caramel and maple bacon to Cambridge, Somerville and downtown Boston with a half-dozen order minimum. No word on maximum.
Honoring Brunch’s Founder. With Brunch.
In 1895, mealtime pioneer Guy Beringer first proposed the radical concept of combining breakfast and lunch on weekends. Now Kitchen is paying tribute to the man with a bottomless brunch in his name. Count on lobster grits, eggs benedict and brown sugar donuts. Also count on a nap.
Craigie Cooks. You Watch the Pats.
On Sunday night, the Patriots will take on the Broncos for the AFC Championship. And you’ll be picking up a portable feast of ribs, pulled pork and pork belly to go from Craigie on Main. Consider it your home field advantage.
