ON YOUR MARCH

Edible March Madness. That Exists Now.

Pauli’s is rolling out a takeout platter representing each Final Four region. You’ve got California wraps for the West Coast, fried-chicken sandwiches for the South, steak-tip wraps for the Midwest and ratatouille for the Northeast. Just kidding, it’s lobster rolls.

Grill 23 Has a Brand-New Bar for You

Say hello to Grill 23’s just-reopened, completely overhauled bar. It’s got:
—A semi-futuristic, solid-glass back bar.
—A new cocktail list full of housemade vermouths and fennel vodka.
—A first-ever bar menu with burgers and Scotch eggs.
Nice to meet you, too, bar.

Friday
Dancing in a Castle Full of Cars
BACKSEAT DANCER

Dancing in a Castle Full of Cars

Swing dancing inside a castle full of pre-WWI automobiles sounds like the next Wes Anderson project. But it’s not. It’s your Friday night. Cocktails, a museum tour and swing dance lessons are all part of this little soiree at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum. Somebody really thought this through.

A Brazilian Coffee Invasion on Newbury
SOFÁ’S CHOICE

A Brazilian Coffee Invasion on Newbury

Where you’d like to be right now: Brazil.
Where you are right now: Boston.
What you can do about it: Get yourself an affogato and a smoked-salmon sandwich at the first US location of this São Paulo coffee conglomerate called Sofá.
Problem sort of solved.

Monday
Wu-Tang Cocktails and Bottomless Sushi
TIGER-STYLE

Wu-Tang Cocktails and Bottomless Sushi

There’s an alternate universe where Monday night means consuming endless sushi and pupu platters while guest bartenders craft Wu-Tang–themed tiki drinks for you. And we hear there’s a portal to this universe at Empire. We made the alternate universe part up. The rest is true.
