Your Perks: 1) Some of Banksy’s best work from his NYC residency is now ready for your walls. 2) A paper-thin portable battery charger. These should be mandatory. 3) A guitar signed by Eric Clapton or Van Halen or the Boss or... someone else equally legendary.
Things to do for March 05, 2015
Pretzel Donuts and a Tiki Week. The Weekend’s All In.
Fire walk with the weekend.
Somewhere out there, a tropical paradise is waiting for you. But in much closer news, Oak Long Bar is going full tiki for 10 days. Scorpion bowls, mai tais, zombies and late-night Polynesian food will reign supreme. Being pro-rum helps.
You know Google. Now get familiar with Google Express. It’s a same-day delivery service that works with your favorite local and national retailers to get you what you need (jeans, peanut butter, flat-screen TV) when you need it (right now). Apparently Google is good at finding things or something.
Tatte Stakes a Claim in Beacon Hill
Long has Boston looked toward Brookline and Cambridge with gluten-based envy. Now, at last, Tatte has opened one of its tile-laden, croissant-strewn cafés on Charles Street to satisfy your daily requirements of Belgian chocolate mousse cakes and bottled cold brews. It pays to have very specific daily requirements.
They said it couldn’t be done. But Union Square Donuts has successfully bred a donut with a pretzel. And it comes in two varieties: a traditional circular number topped with Belgian chocolate, and a savory square layered with mustard. “Mustard donut” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
The Brunch-ization of Liquid Art House
“Zwetschgennudel.” It’s a funny word. But more importantly, it’s a German plum sticky bun. And you’ll find them in great numbers at Liquid Art House’s new brunch, alongside things like bialys and baked apple pancakes. We don’t have any funny German words for those.
Dessert Comes First. Five Times.
You’ll want to leave room for dessert Monday. Enough room for a five-course dessert tasting at Café ArtScience with sourdough beignets, rose macarons and tiny key lime pies on spoons, all paired with wine and cocktails. And you thought your tiny pie days were behind you.
