Weekend Picks – November 20th

Brunch O’Clock

Have brunch every day this weekend! Lucy’s now offers Friday’s brunch at 10am so you can bring your laptop to Lucy’s  and enjoy brunch while you “work.”  Lower Mills Tavern features $5 mimosas and Bloody Marys at brunch.  On Sunday, head to dbar and enjoy huevos rancheros and the monster sticky bun on their heated/covered outdoor patio!  How about burgers and Bloodys at 224’s outdoor patio on Saturday or Disco Brunch Sundays at Blend?

Text-a-Taco

Nothing says love like a taco! Getting flowers or a card in the mail is cool–but imagine how much greater it would be if it was a taco. And not just a taco, Boston’s BEST taco. And what if that taco just lived on your phone until you were ready to eat it? You’re in luck. You can now send (& receive) a taco in the form of a Yellow Door Taqueria gift card via text. You can schedule a taco text for immediate delivery or an upcoming date. Anniversary? TACO. Friends birthday? TACO. Sisters graduation? TACO. Make it rain future tacos-it feels good. It will feel even better though when you’re thanked in six months for a taco you forgot you even sent. To send a taco visit here!

Take the Testing Pledge

Mayor Marty Walsh is asking everyone to commit to getting tested for #COVID19. Getting tested is how you keep yourself and your family safe. It’s also how we track the presence of the virus in our community. We need the most accurate picture we can get, so we can focus our response in the most effective way. The Boston Testing Pledge was launched last week. It’s a commitment that employers and individuals can make, to get tested and support testing access. Here’s a map of testing sites in the city. 

Open House

1 King Street, #3 – Saturday 2-4 and Sunday 11-1
