Though I have yet to drop by The Beehive, I have been hearing lots of good stuff about it. It certainly seems one of the hottest new spots in Boston. I recently received some information about a couple of upcoming events at The Beehive and wanted to alert you to them. They certainly sound interesting and worth checking out.
The Beehive is an underground Bohemian bistro located below the Boston Center for the Art’s Cyclorama in the South End. They serve the eclectic fare of Chef Rebecca Newell: rustic comfort foods infused with American, European, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern influences. They serve dinner as well as weekend brunch.
First upcoming event: The Beehive’s Big Easy, 1st Annual Mardi Gras Celebration
This will be held on Fat Tuesday, February 5th, from 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM, and they have endeavored to make this event as authentic as possible. There will be the "groovin’ gumbo" sounds of the Nat Simpkins/Henri Smith Band. Henri Smith moved to the Boston area shortly after being displaced by Hurricane Katrina. A portion of proceeds from the evening’s event will go to the Tipitina's Foundation, a New Orleans based charity that provides support for displaced musicians to keep the Big Easy Swingin’.
There will be a Cajun inspired Ala Carte menu featuring items such as Oysters Rockefeller, Shrimp Etouffee Vol-Au-Vent, and Jambalaya. You can finish your meal with the Beehive’s Epiphany King Cake, including your very own miniature baby decoration attached. The bar will be serving special drinks including Beehive Hurricane’s, Spicy Oyster Shooters with vodka and Tabasco, and the Sazerac Cocktail made with Sazerac rye, Kübler Absinthe and Peychaud bitters. Kübler Superieure is a well-known brand of absinthe, distilled in the Val-de-Travers region of Switzerland, also known as the birthplace of absinthe.
Attendees will be lavished with plenty of beads necklaces, masks, and the traditional Mardi Gras doubloons coins for throwing. There is no cover charge for this event. Their regular menu will be served in addition to all special items.
Second upcoming event: Beehive’s First Annual Love Ball
This event will be held on February 14, from 10:00 PM – 2:00 AM. This will be "a night of lascivious fun for all you devilish lovers out there!" The Beehive will be playing matchmaker to you and yours with your love happy host and cruise director for the evening, Ryan Landry (star of the upcoming TV reality series Showgirls!)
Throughout the evening our luscious band of lovers will be distributing numbers and collecting anonymous Valentine’s to and from all of the prospective paramours and mysterious vamps in attendance! How it works: Love seekers will receive numbers upon entry allowing attendees to send anonymous messages to those they like, love, or lust! As the game unfolds, identities will be revealed, and matches will be made; building up to the glorious crescendo at midnight when the King and Queen of the First Annual Love Ball will be crowned!
The Love Ball Unlimited Orchestra will play on as that Mac Daddy of Soul, Ron Murphy presents the “between the sheets” music of the original love king himself, Barry White. You can also the “Fondue for Two” menu consisting of three courses of cheese fondue with fresh fruit and brioche, a special beef bourgogne fondue, and Chocolate Fondue made with 100% Belgian Callebaut Chocolates served with Oreo’s, graham cracker, almond biscotti miniature marshmallows and fresh strawberries. The Beehive’s Love Potions will put the spring back in your Aphro-dees-i-ack! These concoctions include several oyster laden "lovely's" and a very special tonic we call “Behind the Green Door” The Ingredients are secret, but we are legally obliged to inform you that they do include: Mumm Napa, Absinthe and fresh strawberries.
