Things to do for April 10, 2014
Competitive Guac, New Lunch and Hats
Would you like to add the weekend to your meal for an additional $1.50?
New Lunch, Right Where You Need It
Piadina. Sounds like the name of a beautiful signora or something. But really, it’s a flaky flatbread sandwich from Northern Italy. You’ll find it alongside generous quantities of espresso at this new, exactly named café in the Financial District. Which you may now call the Flatbread District.
A Night of Mojitos and Dapper Headwear
Take a peek into either Boston-area Goorin Bros. shop tonight, and you’ll notice that they’ve been filled with free mojitos, live Cuban music and a Havana-inspired collection of straw hats and porkpie fedoras. Must be some sort of Cuban-themed hat party.
Two Feet of Muffuletta at the Hawthorne
“Hey, Hawthorne,” you fake-said, “can you make me a muffuletta with ghost-chili salami on Friday and Saturday nights?” “Sure,” the Hawthorne fake-replied, “we’ll make one two-footer and sell it in sections all night. But you can get all 24 inches by calling ahead.” This has been fun.
Look Who’s Lunching Now
Merrill & Co. used to have lunch 0% of the time. That’s changed to 28.57% of the time, with the addition of a weekend-only lunch featuring fried-catfish sandwiches and a Diner Breakfast platter with eggs, hash browns and a weekly meat special. So you can always count on it not being tofu.
This Weekend in Competitive Guacamole
There’s a guac-off at the Painted Burro. It works like American Idol, if American Idol were about eating people’s guacamole submissions and voting the winning batch onto the Burro’s menu. So, better than American Idol in every possible way.
