Things to do for January 23, 2014
Mezcal, a New Place to Eat Meat and More Brunch
Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed weekend.
The Triumphant Return of Volle Nolle
Last time you saw it, Volle Nolle was a sandwich shop. Damn good one at that. Well, now it’s back, but this time as a dinner spot serving up squid-ink pasta and duck meatballs and red wine. They grow up so fast.
A New Shawarma Supply in Somerville
You’ve got to keep your hands warm. And there’s an easy way to do that. Just hold two warm pitas filled with certified Angus-beef shawarma from this new Davis Square spot at all times. Or two kebabs. Or wear gloves and eat them instead. Call it plan B.
Another Brunch. We Know. But Wait.
We thought we could go a week without telling you about a new brunch. But then Ribelle started hawking beef-hash ravioli and banana-bread pancakes with maple olive oil on the weekends. Maple olive oil, people. Nobody ever stood a chance.
At the Intersection of Art and Mezcal...
Nothing against art galleries, but they usually don’t have enough porchetta and mezcal on hand. Tavern Road does, and they’re turning their adjoined TR Street Foods space into an open studio on the fourth Sunday of every month. So you can purchase art in ideal conditions. Pork-and-mezcal conditions.
Coda Becomes Something Else Entirely
Before there was Coda, there was Tim’s Tavern. Forty years’ worth of it. And on a cold, dark night in the very near future, the ghost of Tim’s will return in pop-up form to fill Coda with classic Motown and old-school favorites from its original menu. Tavern hauntings are the best.
