If you can stand to miss Game 6—or want to feast before it—there's a six-course pigfest going down at TW Food tonight, where you can surround yourself in everything from Virginia-style house-smoked ham and a traditional French pig foot to pig head cake with potato and puff pastry. Hey, whatever puffs your pastry...
Things to do for May 13, 2010
Tequila, Vinyl and a Tiki Party
The weekend is not going back to Cleveland.
In the event your yacht is in the shop, Gordon's Wine is throwing a DJ'ed soiree aboard the Spirit of Boston tonight. Hors d'oeuvres and champagne will be passed by butlers, then you'll be set loose on a buffet that features carving, pasta and dessert stations, not to mention 250 wines. You might want to have a cab waiting at the dock.
Like Woodstock for Vinyl
The Greater Boston Record Collectors are conventioning Sunday morning in Woburn, with over 40 private and professional jazz, funk, rock and R&B collectors hawking their wares. Translation: this is your chance to make a few bucks off your thorough Johnny Gill collection, or score some rare Johnny Cash. Probably both.
Tiki Madness in Fort Point Channel
Let's face it: you're not really a stay-at-home-on-Sunday person. So you may want to head to Drink for their Tiki Sundays, which just got rebooted a few weeks back. If you go, definitely try the Zombie, featuring three rums, fresh juices and absinthe, served in a real tiki mug by a bartender wearing a Hawaiian shirt. Let's get crazy, people.
Next to Salma Hayek, tequila is Mexico's greatest gift to the world. On Monday, Tremont 647 is honoring the import with a tequila super-tasting that pairs Milagro tequila with braised lamb, tamales and chicken enchiladas. There will also be a margarita reception to kick things off, plus a lecturer who's an expert on the drink. Amazingly, it's not you.
