This Is for Skiing and Looking Great

What you really want for Christmas: an Alpine-inspired shawl-collar jacket designed for skiing and made with Teflon-coated, water-resistant wool. Which you can get from this new, local maker of attractive skiing wearables called Alps & Meters. You know. In case no one got that for you.

A Low-Key Bar Underneath a Pastry Shop
NOTES FROM THE UNDERGROUND

A Low-Key Bar Underneath a Pastry Shop

The Modern Underground. No, it’s not Macaulay Culkin’s new cannoli-themed band. It’s a discreet, subterranean imbibery below Modern Pastry where you’ll duck down for cheap beers and mighty burgers. And cannoli, whenever you want to go back upstairs for one of those. Yep. You could live here.

Friday
I Am Rosebud, Hear Me Lunch
A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

I Am Rosebud, Hear Me Lunch

Rosebud’s doing lunch now, but only on Fridays. Don’t ask them why. Just know that you’re getting increased access to veal parm burgers, smoked-brisket sandwiches and Cuban quesadillas. Everyone’s normalizing relations with Cuba these days.

Meet Your New Barcelona Wine Bar
BALL AND SPAIN

Meet Your New Barcelona Wine Bar

’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the South End,
Not a creature was stirring... except for Barcelona Wine Bar,
The jamón ibérico was hung in the kitchen with care,
In hopes that paella fans would soon be there.
And that was a stupid poem about a new Barcelona Wine Bar opening.

Beyond
Ice, Fire and Free Chowder
FIRE WALK WITH YOU

Ice, Fire and Free Chowder

There’s a festival at the Lawn on D, divided into “Fire” and “Ice” on each day. Here’s what to expect:
Ice: An ice bar, an ice labyrinth and non-ice pizza from Stoked Pizza.
Fire: Fire pits, fire performers and gratis chowder.
Chowder’s warm. Totally counts.

Jan 2, 4-8pm; Jan 3-4, 11am-8pm; The Lawn on D, 420 D St, 617-954-2000
