Things to do for September 10, 2015
A Made-in-the-USA Fest, BBQ Lemonade and... Butter
Weekend and inches.
BBQ Lemonade and Bulletproof Coffee
Will Gilson of Puritan & Company just opened a juice stand in Kendall called Beatnik Beverage Company. There are juice things, like BBQ Lemonade with lemon, lime, agave and activated charcoal. And there are non-juice things, like kombucha on tap and Bulletproof coffee. Non-juice game: strong.
Bon Me Does Fried Chicken Now
So Bon Me has a new location in North Cambridge. That’s not big news. But this Bon Me is the first and only to serve things like Bon Me Dogs and Japanese-style fried chicken. That’s big news.
Two Days of American-Made Majesty
If you want to do your country good this weekend, you can: 1) rescue a wounded bald eagle and nurse it back to health, or 2) welcome the return of made-in-the-USA-palooza American Field, back with 36 new vendors and bacon from the Bacon Truck. America. Bacon. You’ve got this.
Sad story with a happy ending: a fire temporarily closed the Blue Room. But then chefs from State Park, Fairsted Kitchen and more decided to get together and cook a brunch benefiting its staff at Commonwealth, where you’ll eat seven family-style dishes like fried-chicken sliders and pork pozole. Happy.
Artisanal hand-churned butter is a thing. So much of a thing that Menton’s staging an entire dinner dedicated to the butter of Vermont-based creamery Animal Farm, with a champagne reception and a five-course dinner that includes shellfish butter soup and buttermilk semifreddo. Good for you, butter.
