We assume your year is off to a smashing start. Keep the streak alive with the first Boston Cougar Hunt of 2010, going down at Barlow's tonight. It's guerilla style, which means the bar itself isn't in on it, but simply the chosen ground for you to go for broke with well-aged women also looking to score. As always, pith helmets are welcome.
Things to do for January 21, 2010
Cougar Hunts, Rum and Fondue
The weekend respects your decision.
A midnight burlesque show is unusual in these parts, and this special one-night-only event will feature the naughty thespians from the hit play The Slutcracker. Look for an especially saucy group number by a band of garter-packing women known as the Bitches of Destiny. The name says it all.
January is a good time to reflect on your wardrobe, assessing what stays and what goes. Should you decide you need to replenish your threads, Stel's is knocking 50% off all winter menswear, including button-downs and blazers from Nom de Guerre, outerwear from Robert Geller and knits from Yigal Azrouël.
Sundays are meant for two things: the Pats and fondue. So in light of recent pigskin-related follies, let's focus on the cheese. Beacon Hill Bistro has brought back Fondue Sundays, where you can devour rustic breads, vegetables and small potatoes dipped in boiling-hot, Swiss-style pots of cheesy goodness.
The French say a day without wine is like a day without sunshine. Well, a Monday without rum ain't no peach, either. So Redbones is hosting a tasting featuring barbecued apps and half-ounce samples of rum from the Berkshires, Venezuela and Brazil. A half-ounce might not sound like much, but trust us, they add up quickly.
