Your Perks: 1) Blazers, shirts, vests and ties at up to 57% off. They range from handsome to very handsome. 2) A portable phone battery that also unfolds to plug into the wall. Yes, it’s necessary. 3) Cufflinks shaped like dinosaurs, red Solo cups and other things you’ve never seen cufflinks shaped like.
Things to do for June 25, 2015
Sushi, Rum Punch and a Rooftop Bar
We’re gonna need a bigger weekend.
Canadian Sushi Is a Thing We Have Now
Ikura’s gone. But it’s been replaced by a new sushi place from Canada. Yes, that Canada. And they’re ready to ply you with things like Sundae Rolls made with cream cheese, shrimp tempura and shredded crabmeat. Oh, and it very vaguely resembles an ice cream sundae. That’s important.
This Weekend in New Bars, Part I
There are two ways to view Boston Harbor from a height of seven stories while partaking in mai tais and rum punches: 1) Levitation. 2) The newly opened rooftop bar at the Envoy Hotel. Only one of those is real.
This Weekend in New Bars, Part II
We should probably tell you that Cinquecento has a new patio bar that used to be a shipping container in another life. Now it’s a place where a dozen people can sit outside and order Negroni flights and rosé on tap. It’s a better life.
Good Brunch Tidings at Brewer’s Fork
Now, let’s play Name That New Brunch!
Your clues: Charlestown. Beer. Pork-and-cheese pupusas. Cast-iron frittatas. Belgian waffles with chicken and gravy. Wood-fired bacon cheeseburgers...
You can stop us at any time by saying “Brewer’s Fork.”
Imbibing Your Way Through Airplane
You: Hey, Backbar, I heard you’re doing another cocktails-and-a-movie pairing.
Backbar: We are. This time it’s Airplane, and there will be drinks like I Like My Coffee with amaro, coffee bitters and coffee ice cubes.
You: Surely you can’t be serious.
Backbar: You really want to go down that road today?
