Fall, what a wonderful time of year. The leaves are changing, beer festivals are abundant and in true Boston fall fashion, its 45 degrees out with 30 mph winds and your hating life because it’s too cold to enjoy any of it.
Aright folks, it seems to be time to prepare for whatever it is Mother Nature has in store for us in the coming months. Because rumor has it, she’s even more pissed off then last year.
Alright Boston, what has beer, brats and baked pretzels all over? Yes, it’s Oktoberfest. Aka the best 16 days of the year where you get to rejoice your true (or honorary) German heritage…
We all know what a great cook you are (cough), kidding, boiling water doesn’t count. Well, actually, I take that back, now it does count, because that’s actually all you need to know, to brew your own beer. Make your brewing dreams come true with the IPA Beer Kit from Williams-Sonoma.
Like much of the country the best time of year to be in Beantown is the fall; but for a very different reason. With perhaps more bars then trees in the city, Bostonians know how to celebrate the onset of fall; and the New England Craft Beer Festival is here to prove that.
The first day of fall is right around the corner, meaning you’ll soon be forced into activities such as apple picking, going on hay rides through pumpkin patches and taking selfies in front of the changing leaves. Joy.
Everywhere you look you’re seeing signs for pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins and apple cider. It’s official: autumn has arrived.
We all enjoy a solid sack, tackle and kick, but things don’t always go so well for our teams and at these times we need some comfort food to balance it all out. When it comes to comfort food there is nothing like Southern cooking; but like the game itself, it is not for the faint of heart. Dense, hearty and delicious come to mind and there are few places that put it all together the way Lulu’s Allston does.
Make room in your closet this season for some fresh looks for game-day (or those days you just want to brag about your team’s win).
Just because football is back doesn’t mean summer has to end. Protest the onset of winter while, supporting your team in the Tri Big Play Raglan T-Shirt from Nike.
Wherever you are in Boston take a break from your studies, grab the MBTA to Harvard Square, and try Michael Scelfo’s new restaurant, Alden and Harlow.
