Tequila and Rye Freeze Pops Exist

The temperature is up, and your inner child is craving a freeze pop. But your inner adult wants an Old Fashioned. Thankfully, Tremont647 has solved this dilemma by turning rye Old Fashioneds, raspberry gimlets and margaritas into genuine, plastic-wrapped freeze pops. Maybe just let them melt and have a cocktail.

Available now, Tremont647, 647 Tremont St, 617-266-4600

WOW OR NEVER

Wow Barbecue: Less Truck, More Walls

If you like Wow Barbecue as a truck, you should see it as a not-truck. Their new Malden brick-and-mortar is packing a full liquor license and 35 skewers, including fantasticness like grilled oysters in garlic sauce. And four walls, if that’s a factor.

TRUCKY DAY

Incoming: A Whole Lot of Food Truck

Somerville decided that it would hold its first food truck festival this weekend. Because there’s no good reason for it not to. And consequently, no good reason for you not to eat ribs, whoopie pies and tacos from the 22 assembled trucks. Allergies, maybe. Still.

Jun 7, 11am-4pm, $5, Assembly Row, Somerville, tickets here

HARLOW CAN YOU GO

... and Then, Alden & Harlow Had Brunch

Last night, you had this crazy dream that Alden & Harlow had brunch. There was hickory-smoked pig tails and grits. There was pork belly carbonara and Szechuan Bloody Marys. But then you woke up... and found out that all of that starts happening on Sunday. Funny how that worked.

A Breakfast Sandwich Battle Royale

Six chefs are gathering at Daddy Jones for a breakfast sandwich showdown, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. Okay, so they’re not that high. But they will be slinging plenty of breakfast sandwiches your way, along with two gratis bourbon-and-iced-coffee cocktails. You’ll want to stay alert for this.
