Things to do for December 03, 2009
Brazilians, Free Fro-Yo and a 54-Proof Beer
The weekend is all about the weekend this weekend.
If your exposure to Brazilian culture is limited to admiring Tom Brady's better half, head to the Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers tonight. Brazilian cooks are whipping up traditional finger foods like shrimp turnovers and codfish balls, and you'll be washing them down with fresh caipirinhas. Which are like the Gisele of rum spritzers.
Caviar Flight at Mare
Mare is hosting a caviar tasting on Friday, where you can explore the luxurious ocean treats of China, Washington and California. The salty aphrodisiac will be served atop blinis (polenta crepes), which when rolled up with the caviar are like the Russian equivalent of cannoli.
If you learned nothing else from Willy Wonka, it's that the chocolate-factory open house is a rare occurrence. This Saturday, Taza Chocolate in Somerville invites you inside its hallowed halls for a day to see where the magic happens. There'll be hot chocolate on hand and 10 percent off web orders. And maybe an oompa-loompa or two.
Free Frozen Yogurt for You
Fro-yo purveyors Red Mango have opened their first Boston location and are celebrating on Saturday by dishing out free one-topping cups to one and all. Plus, Rumor nightclub's resident DJ will be spinning tunes, because nothing says frozen yogurt like cross-faded beats.
Beer and cheese. God's proof he loves us. And on Tuesday, one of the brewmasters from Sam Adams (that bearded bald guy from the commercials) will be hosting a beer pairing, featuring everything from Sam Light with a mild Gouda cheese, to the 27% monster Sam Adams Utopia, served with some extra-sweet French vanilla ice cream.
