365 Things to Do in Boston - New Tips Daily

3 BBQ Places to Try This Weekend

Posted by 365 Things Boston on Fri, Mar 11, 2016

Spring has sprung which means it's BBQ season! Check out one of these places in Boston for some seriously good Southern-style BBQ.

1. Sweet Cheeks - "Top Chef Season 1 finalist Tiffani Faison goes back to her roots with a roadhouse-style barbecue joint alongside her Rocca pal Daniel Raia as Chef de Cuisine. Drinks come in mason jars, sides sit happily in tin cups, and everything is piled generously high on metal trays. Go for a "Tray" with a variety of responsibly sourced moo/oink/cluck options, one hot side (collard greens, mac and cheese), one cold side (coleslaw, potato salad), plus pickles and onions (white bread available on request). And you definitely need a bucket of buttery biscuits, thus increasing the size of your sweet cheeks."


2. Redbones BBQ - "Redbones has been keeping it down-home real on red checkered tablecloths since 1987, and they have you completely covered (in sauce) with morsels from every American BBQ stronghold. For sheer excess, strap on the Barbecue Belt with Texas ribs, St. Louis ribs, baby back ribs, AND sliced, smoked beef brisket… with beans and slaw. Their apps (fried pickles and jalapeños, BBQ hash, Catfingers, fried oysters, fried okra) are all comfort-food crazy, so it helps to bring friends to aid you in your attack. Bonus: they have 28 draft brews to back up all that meat."


3. Larry J's BBQ Cafe - "Larry Jimerson (manager and pitmaster) elevates his "Art of the Q" with apple and hickory woods, a proprietary blend of herbs and spices, and a 12-hour smoking process. Just for you. And maybe the other guests. Start off with Fire Balls (a medley of pepper-flavored meatballs) or Hawg Wings (tender pork shanks), then roll up your shirtsleeves on a full rack of cut ribs, pulled pork (North Carolina or Texas sauce), or a smoked turkey leg (all served with two fixin's). Unique selections include Texas Caviar (a black-eyed pea salad), cowboy beans, and candied yams."

T: An MBTA Musical

Posted by 365 Things Boston on Mon, Feb 29, 2016

"T: An MBTA Musical tells the tale of three 20-somethings whose lives have been derailed by the MBTA's incompetency. When they discover a secret map that will enable them to overthrow the transit system’s inadequacy, they set forth on a colorful journey that is part love story, part melodrama, part scavenger hunt, all one big transportation nightmare. The musical won the 2011 BroadwayWorld.com "Best New Musical" award and includes memorable moments like "The Shuttle Bus Song (We Can't Handle It)," “General Manager of the Month,” and "The Bro Song."
