Troquet announced today that after 15 years in business at 140 Boylston Street the restaurant will close on Saturday, January 28th only to move and open in a larger space in the Leather District in early February. Details about the new space were not mentioned in the media release, although it did allude to a larger kitchen and wine cellar as well as more bar space, which will make it far easier to grab a drink than their current location which I believe can only seat 6-8 people.
I’ve had several meals at Troquet over the years, in part because they are so conveniently located in Boston’s Theater District, making it a great place to grab a meal before or after a show. You can read my restaurant review: Troquet Boston is a wine lovers restaurant.
I’ll share more about Troquet’s new home when I learn more. Stay tuned.
Earlier this month it was announced that Ryan Reynolds will be awarded the Hasty’s Pudding Man of the Year 2017. The producer and Golden Globe-nominated actor will come to Harvard Square to recieve his pudding pot on Friday, February 3. There’s no word on the theatrical group’s Woman of the Year award just yet.
Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the oldest theater organization in the country. Every year, the group honors a man and a woman who’ve made significant contributions to the entertainment world. Then, they roast the winners and host a parade in Harvard Square. Reynolds is the 51st recipient of the Man of the Year award, which was established in 1963.
I really appreciate it when a guy knows how to dress. Case in point this week’s Temptation Tuesday.
Shepard Fairey is once again using his art to make a political statement, and I couldn’t be happier to say that I’ve donated to the We The People Kickstarter campaign, which closes this Tuesday, to show my support.
The campaign which includes works from Shepard Fairey, Jessica Sabogal, and Ernesto Yerena has raised nearly $830,000 from more than 13,000 individual donors. The money will be used to take out full page advertisement the day of Trump’s
Coronation Inauguration in The Washington Post and include posters for people to hold along the parade route in Washington, D.C.
If you would like to learn more about the campaign and possibly make a donation as well you can visit We The People.
