Thursday Sips & Nibbles

I am back again with a new edition of Thursday Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I briefly highlight some interesting wine and food items that I have encountered recently.
1) On March 14th, from 7pm-10pm, Towne Stove and Spirits will host an event to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital: Fill with Bills. At this charitable fete, the team at Towne will urge guests to drop bills into the Boston Children’s Hospital glass donation vessel, that permanently lives at the top of the stairs in their Uptowne dining room and bar area, in support this ever-worthy cause. At this celebration of generosity and care, guests will enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres by Executive Chef Mario Capone and cocktails like their signature Uptowne Punch (wild tea vodka, cranberry simple syrup, triple sec and hard cider). At the end of the evening, the funds raised will be graciously presented to the Hospital.

To attend this event, Towne Stove and Spirits kindly requests making a donation to Boston Children’s Hospital at the door. To RSVP, please contact:

2) Join The Beehive for a special Easter jazz brunch on Sunday March, 31 from 10am-4pm. Enjoy world-class music and a three course prix fixe meal for $33.95 per person featuring comfort cuisine classics from Executive Chef Rebecca Newell. Start off with options such as Greek Easter Lemon Lamb Soup or House-made Granola & Yogurt with Fresh Berries before indulging in the main event with choices that include Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon, Ham or Short Ribs and Easter classics such as Roast Leg of Lamb with Tomatoes, Capers, Olives & Oregano Potatoes, Baked Spiral Ham with Charred Pineapple Glaze, Peas & Whipped Potatoes, and The Beehive’s acclaimed Eggs Shakshuka (sunnyside eggs baked “North African Style” with tomato sauce and polenta). Or, opt for more traditional fare with The Beehive’s Prime Cheeseburger. For kids, The Beehive has a “Little Bee’s Kids Menu” ($12) to order from before they scurry off to partake in the annual Easter egg hunt from 10am-3pm.

The Beehive is also serving Easter Dinner from 4pm-10pm with live jazz performances until 12am. For reservations please call (617) 423-0069.
