Your Perks: 1) A monthly subscription to get world-class cigars delivered to your door. Smoke ’em ’cause you’ve got ’em. 2) Jay Z–approved bubbly for you to toast with this New Year’s. 3) One of these vintage watches. Or two of these vintage watches. You’ve got enough wrists.
Things to do for December 18, 2014
Bottled Cocktails, Bill Murray and Super Burritos
The weekend does not charge extra for guacamole.
Randolph Engineering just created some new aviators for Ball and Buck called the Hunter Line. The lenses are made with a special polycarbonate that’s five to six times more impact-resistant than your typical sunglasses, which makes them great for pheasant-hunting situations. As well as non-pheasant-hunting situations.
The Super Burrito Is Back in Town
Past: You ate Super Burritos at the original Felipe’s in the Garage.
Present: You’re eating Super Burritos in their cavernous new multilevel location down the street.
Future: You’ll eat Super Burritos on their patio and roof deck when those open in the spring.
Super Burritos seem to be the constant here.
They Bottled Gin and Tonics for You
You could always bring a nice bottle of wine to your holiday party, sure. Or you could pick up a few four-packs of Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ new bottled gin and tonics, made with their Greylock gin and scratch-made tonic. There’s a right and a wrong answer in this scenario.
The Age of Pastoral Brunch Begins
A smoked-pancetta pizza looking for love. A fried chocolate ravioli with a dark past. A Campari-vodka-grapefruit Italian Greyhound that’s new to the big city. Something called Italian Ramen. What do these characters have in common? Find out Sunday on an all-new Pastoral Brunch.
Bill Murray and Cocktail Ghosts. Okay.
Backbar got you exactly what you wanted this year: a screening of the Billy Murray–heavy holiday classic Scrooged paired with three cocktails, each named after a different ghost of Christmas. Just the way Dickens imagined it.
