America being the multi-cultural melting pot of diversity and tolerance that it is, ensures that just about any international holiday is cause for celebration. Want to get wild and hit the bubbly for Bastille Day (July 14th)—done! Or perhaps, you prefer to get explicit and do some “ouzo-bombs” in honor of Greek Independence Day (March 25th). Whatever the occasion, America is the undisputed facilitator of revelry—especially in concerns to our dear neighbors in Mexico!
Though undoubtedly muddled in the memory banks of countless Americans, the actual history of Cinco de Mayo has taken a backseat to the margaritas, tequila, and salsa specials inherently associated with it. Though what better way to commemorate the unlikely Mexican victory over the French (circa 1862) than with some good old fashioned debauchery?
Frenetically we race against clocks: clocks demarcating time, deadlines, and necessary markers in our existence. Nothing reaffirms this more than the construct of the “work week." Battling the exasperation, disillusion, and general listlessness inherited by the “Americana Proletarian Dream”—one must salvage sanity when they can. One must make a concentrated effort to forcibly infuse joviality into the miasma of the week. Every day the options are ripe with enticing avenues for exploration and cultural growth—one need merely seize desire and reroute the inevitable doldrums towards more sunny horizons.
In case you got so drunk that you don't remember, last night marked the start of the second annual Boston Wine Week. Through April 3rd, participating restaurants will be offering wines at huge discounts - each serving up a minimum of six typically way-pricier wines for $9 a glass or $32 a bottle.
As part of the event, this Thusday, March 31, Second Glass invites you on a bar crawl through some of the classiest bars in Back Bay Boston. Be sure to don your Thursday best, since some of the venues have strictly-enforced dress codes. After all, this isn't just any bar crawl, it's a classy bar crawl. Kicking off at 94 Mass Ave, the crawl will also take you to Brasserie Jo, Back Bay Social Club and more.
Christmas comes but once a year, and packed in Santa's sack of toys is one of Hoboken's most exciting Christmas traditions, The Hoboken SantaFest. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Hoboken SantaFest; bringing holiday cheer and extreme amounts of booze to all those involved. SantaFest is a Christmasthemed bar crawl that will take place on Dec. 12th from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. No sign up is necessary; all you have to do to participate is wear a holiday costume.
The majority of men attending the Hoboken SantaFest dress as ol' St. Nick, although any holiday themed consume will do. Ladies are invited to dress as Ms. or Mrs. Claus, an elf, or even a seductive reindeer! Creative versions of classic costumes are always appreciated and encouraged. Last year, even some penguins came out to celebrate, so feel free to put your imagination to the test.
