What a week, ONEin3ers! Though it’s all but in the past, this particular seven-day stretch in mid-January is one we won’t soon forget. Whether you consider Tuesday’s election results triumph or tragedy, I think it’s safe to say we could all use a drink…or two. And since this post is all about what’s poppin’ on the weekend, we’ll forgo the political analysis in favor of finding some fun straight through till Sunday. No trucks, back-ally deals or American Idol failures required.
If the New England chill makes you dread even the thought of stepping outside, we’ve got just the thing to curb your urge to hibernate ’till the Sox take the field in April. Let the weekend begin by sipping a classic winter warmer, with a twist! Make your move at 5pm over to the swank M Bar & Lounge at The Mandarin Oriental for their “Tea Toddy” ($8), a hot concoction of Goslings Rum, vanilla rooibos tea and cinnamon, which is available to fortify your defense against the weather everyday from 5pm-7pm!
Ready to raise a few more glasses? The largest wine event in the country comes to World Trade Center Boston on Saturday and Sunday! Over 450 international wineries will be on hand, peddling pours from a total of 1,800 different varietals of wine from around the globe. Get your tickets now and prepare for a serious amount of sipping. After getting thoroughly sauced in the Seaport District, you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a lavish Viennese Dessert Buffet at The Bristol Lounge from 9pm-12am on Friday or Saturday. For just $24, induce your own sugar coma with an endless arrangement of cakes, cookies, bread pudding, crêpes and more!
Though we’re never quite ready to wrap up the weekend, what better way to send it off than with some meal deals down in Dot. At Dorchester-Milton Restaurant Week, feast on three courses at eight participating restaurants, including Ashmont Grill, Tavolo and Abby Park. And at just $30.10 a person, you’ll have some dough left over for one last hurrah before Monday strikes: The Accross Somerville Avenue Sunday Night Music Review! Jesse Moos rocks The Independant with 70′s Funk, bass-heavy Soul and only the best Hip-Hop selections that are guaranteed to get you moving. Listen and repeat: It’s gonna be a great weekend!
