Saturday - 19th Century Pub Crawl

Join the 19th Century Society for a really old-school pub crawl tomorrow, though the classic bars of Boston.

The group will meet promptly at 5:30 PM at Eastern Standard (528 Commonwealth Avenue) for classic cocktails and complimentary appetizers; then proceed to Red Hat Café; Union Oyster House; Bell in Hand Tavern; and, if you are still sober, head to one of my favorites, Drink.

19th century attire is encouraged, but by no means required. So basically, if you miss the group at Eastern Standard, sounds like you'll be able to spot them at Red Hat! :)

The crawl is FREE to join. For an itinerary of the night, click here. RSVP on Facebook here.

Preview - Rafiki Bistro

The folks behind Central Square's Clear Conscious Cafe are bringing a new join into the Harvard/Porter Sq area - a locally and organic bistro.

Rafiki Bistro's objective is to create a premier Bistro built around an organic and all natural offering whenever possible - or, sustainable. The bistro will be offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dinner menu previews have everything from potato latkes with North American caviar to salads and an all-natural gourmet burger selection. The wild mushroom ragout sounds delightful.

Rafiki Bistro is planning to open soon - it will be located at 1620 Mass Ave, in between Harvard and Porter Squares. For more information, click here.
