Bourbon, Senegalese Brunch and a Brewery Turns 21
The weekend celebrates Cinco all week long.
Charlestown. Historic. Picturesque. And prime territory for an all-day pub crawl, courtesy of the Boston Ski & Sports Club. You'll begin your journey through the cobblestoned streets at 1:30pm, with one-hour stops and gratis apps at haunts like Warren Tavern and Ironside. Pace yourself.
The Brunch of Western Africa
If you've ever been curious about how the people of Senegal tackle a hangover, you'll have a chance to find out starting this Sunday. South End staple Teranga unveils a brunch featuring French Crepes stuffed with Nutella or stir-fry chicken, Baguette French Toast and Ham and Cheese Crepes with Egg. It would seem the French made their culinary mark at some point.
Gorgeous weekends make Mondays feel all the more unbearable. Enter Somerville BBQ joint Redbones and its bourbon tasting this Monday night. Twelve bucks gets you half-ounce samples of bourbon from Kentucky and New York, plus gratis apps like catfish fingers, corn fritters and hushpuppies. You'll deal with Tuesday on Tuesday.
