Upcoming Events! (That I can’t attend)

17 May

There are so many great things happening while Stud Muffin and I are on our Honeymoon. I’m not complaining because we will be on an amazing trip, but I hate to miss out on awesome events in Boston!

So, if you don’t have plans for May 31 or June 7, or even if you do and you want a good excuse to cancel your other plans… check out these upcoming events.

May 30 & May 31 – times vary – American Craft Beer Fest  – According to EventBrite invite, “The 7th annual American Craft Beer Fest (ACBF) is the east coast’s largest celebration of American craft beer hosted at the Seaport World Trade Center Boston by BeerAdvocate & Harpoon Brewery. The 2-day fest will feature 3-session and 640+ craft beers from 140+ American brewers.”

Saturday, May 31 starting at 5 pmWink & Nod in the South End is celebrating Ardbeg Day (I had to look this up to be honest) by opening a bottle of Ardbeg Galileo, a 12-year old single malt that was ranked best in the world. This will only be served on this day and at midnight, it will be closed and saved until next year’s Ardbeg Day. So if you are into exclusives, hand over $11 and sip it down straight or in a cocktail!








June 1 2 – 6 PMCREATE – The Waterfront Gallery & Harbor Walk at Fairmont Battery Wharf

CREATE sounds like an awesome event. I have never heard of it before, but apparently this is the 3rd year! So here is the description, “Chef Louis DiBiccari will showcase some of Boston’s brightest rising art, culinary and mixology stars in Boston. Chefs and bartenders will be paired with visual artists to create a dish and drink that corresponds, interacts or interprets the art. There will be six art/food/drink stations set up. Art will vary, may be 2D or 3D, and may be interactive (live). Guests are encouraged to peruse and purchase at their leisure— seeing, sipping and tasting a trifecta of Bostonian culture. Outside of the winery, tunes from Moe Pope and DJ TJ Connelly keep the energy amped.

June 7 2:30 – 5 PM – Landmark Center parking structure – Bacon & Beer Festival

I mean it is bacon and beer. What more could you ask for? I have yet to go to this event. BUT that is not surprising because the thing sells out in 45 seconds. YES – THAT IS WHAT I SAID! 45 SECONDS! If you got a ticket, good on you. Tell us how it is.




















19 Mar

You poor, poor neglected blog. Cdog and I are sorry. We have completely abandoned you, but we have good excuses…

We’ve been traveling. I won’t name where because you wouldn’t feel bad for us…

Christen has a baby who is freaking adorable and I mean who would rather blog than play with their cute, little, cuddly monkey? However, Miss Monkey is starting to eat people food, so maybe should could write about her adventures with making baby food.

I am planning a wedding, so I haven’t been cooking the delicious things I used to because you know trying to get in wedding-day shape!

But, to hold you over until inspiration strikes again, here are some new restaurant openings that you may want to check out:

Wink & Nod – a speakeasy in the South End. It sounds fun. They are going to serve craft cocktails, and it is also home to Whisk, which is serving some good eats from Jeremy Kean and Philip Kruta. It opens tomorrow, 3/20 at 5 p.m. Find ’em on FB or Twitter.

Merrill & Co – also in the South End, at One Appleton Street. comes from the good peeps at jmCurley. I haven’t been yet, but have seen a few pictures of the place and of the food and both look pretty great. Check them out on Facebook and the Tweets.

Lilian’s Smokin’ Rack Barbecue – Apparently this company is known for its rubs and sauces, but now they will be serving up racks o’ribs right on the Greenway, well out of a truck, but you know what I mean. It will be part of the 2014 Food Truck Schedule, which is supposed to launch April 1. (Found on Eater Boston)

Italian coming to Charlestown – Legal Sea Foods has been rumored to be bringing a different concept restaurant to Charlestown for a few months now. This Globe article says that it will in fact be bringing a cozy, Italian joint to the Chuck in the spring. Also according to the article it will be called, Legal Oysteria. Seriously, I can’t wait. How nice it will be to have something new, different and not run by a degenerate. Ok, that was mean, but um, have you read the news?
