The Age of Pastoral Delivery Begins

Pastoral delivery. It exists now. It really exists. You can order online or through a dedicated app, but the results will be the same: you in pajamas eating veal meatball pizza. They deliver within a mile for now, but a larger territory’s coming later. You can be wearing real clothes, too.

Now available online or by texting “PASTORAL” to 33733 to download app, Pastoral, 345 Congress St, 617-345-0005

Have a New Lunch and a New Patio

This just in from Committee, part I: A new lunch with lamb gyros and fried-eggplant sandwiches.

This just in from Committee, part III: There wasn’t supposed to be a part III.

GOING SOFT

Blackbird Doughnuts + Soft-Serve = Yes

Blackbird Doughnuts finally got its soft-serve machine. And they’ve wasted no time covering wild berry donut holes with vanilla ice cream and cinnamon sugar cake donut dust. You don’t waste time when you’ve got a soft-serve machine.

Oysters. Jazz. Let’s Bastille Day.

Tuesday’s Bastille Day. Big deal in France. Also a big deal at Gaslight. Because there will be live jazz, oyster shucking, a pig roast and general patio-based revelry. You’re all right, France.
