Things to do for July 17, 2014
Gatsby Brunch, Daiquiris and Suits
Here a weekend. There a weekend. Everywhere a weekend, weekend.
Louis Boston’s Finest: Now 60% Off
Sure, Louis Boston could give you 100% off their stash of dapperness, but that would make zero financial sense. So instead, they’re offering Belvest suits, Kiton polos, Common Projects shoes and other fine items at 60% off. Don’t say the numeral 6 never did anything for you.
This New Place Has Ribs and Whiskey
Red Bird. It’s neither red nor a bird. But it is a cozy new bar and restaurant in Waltham where you can help yourself to sticky pork ribs, watermelon gazpacho and Sherlock & Watsons made with Earl Grey tea and whiskey. Beats colors and avian creatures any day.
A New Deck Full of Clam Bakes at Pier 6
Q: What’s the best way to make use of an extra deck at Pier 6?
A: Fill it with over 40 seats, a new menu with ciabatta sandwiches and clam bakes, and name it “The Deck.”
They never promised anyone an original name.
Happy National Daiquiri Day. Do This.
You take the observance of national holidays very seriously. And National Daiquiri Day should be no exception. Better head to the Painted Burro for a party with passed tacos, how-to daiquiri lessons and a special number called the Periodista with amber rum and apricot brandy. Just add your face.
They Serve Mimosas in Top Hats Here
The Great Gatsby’s been adapted once again. As a brunch. At Parla. Which naturally involves a home-fry poutine dubbed The Old Sport, quail-egg-stuffed tater tots called Gatsby’s Grand Ball and mimosas served inside of top hats. Just the way Fitzgerald imagined it.
