Brunch at Avenue One

Eversave Boston co-hosted the last brunch organized by the Boston Brunchers at Avenue One a few weeks ago, so luckily enough, I got to attend (with the fabulous Michelle). It was deeeelicious, let me tell you! I had eggs, lobster, cheese, pancakes, french toast, a Bloody Mary, a mini smoothie, and more…(I obviously took full advantage of what they had to offer ;)). It was so nice catching up with some of my favorite Boston bloggers and meet some new people as well!

Let’s talk about the hidden gem of Boston, which is the terrace at Avenue One. It is such an amazing space for having a post-work cocktail with some co-workers, a pre-dinner drink with a date, girls night, etc. Any gathering, really! I personally think this space would be especially cool for a party – birthday party, engagement party, etc. (so keep it in mind for your special summer celebrations for sure).

The Terrace is open Tuesday through Friday from 4:00p.m. to close.

Avenue One, yay!

Hoppy (early) Father’s Day!

If you’re anything like me (and my siblings) you LOVE your Pops! He is the man who has always been there for you providing unconditional love, support and wisdom throughout the journey. Now, that deserves an amazing Father’s Day present don’t you think?

Still trying to think of what you can get Dad (other than a tired tie!)? I have three awesome, quick solutions for you.

1. Like Jim Koch says, “give him something he really wants” this year. And what might that be, you ask? A Hoppy Father’s Day gift basket from Sam Adams and FromYouFlowers.com! This pairs a Sam Adams glass with a wood grilling plank, beef spice rub blend (both designed to enhance flavors), a Sam Adams keychain, hat. jar of Bavarian Noble hop ‘flowers’ and an assortment of dried fruits and nuts. All perfectly designed to arrive on your Dad’s doorstep just in time to enjoy a cold beer on the deck in the warm summer sun. :)

This gift basket will be available exclusively at FromYouFlowers.com in limited quantities for $39.99. Visit FromYouFlowers.com to order online or call 1.800.838.8853 for phone orders. They also have lots of other great stuff on their site as well!

2. Want something a little flashier? Get Pops a batch of Sam Adams Utopias – Jim Koch’s signature extreme beer. The folks at Sam Adams say this is “Meant to be savored like a vintage fortified win or fine cognac, this strong, rich, uncarbonated dark beer is best served as a two-ounce pour at room temperature in a snifter glass.”

This concoction is a blend of liquids, aged in wood casks for up to 18 years. This aging process enhances the distinct vanilla, maple and cocoa flavors. There is also a hint of ginger and cinnamon. These flavors intensify over time and becomes even better with age. Just like Pops! There has been a limited distribution of this in the area (in really cool bottles your Dad will LOVE!) so hurry, go snatch one up. Suggested retail price, $150.

3. Last suggestion I have? Eversave.com! For one, we have a REALLY good wine Save up from Wine.com — $70 worth of wine for $35. And if you use promo code DAD , guess what? You score yourself $5 off. Cheers to that!

We also have a ton of great restaurant Saves up, because we are celebrating ‘Father’s Day Restaurant Week’ at Eversave Boston, so see what restaurants are in Dad’s neck of the woods and buy him a Save to use — or buy one and take him out for a lovely dinner together!

100 Days of Kindness, Day 11

First – Happy Veterans Day!

Second – My ‘nice’ for today:

I want to share my promo code with you guys for today’s Save at Eversave! It’s a great one – at The Talk Restaurant in Watertown. Instead of paying $20 for $40 worth of food and drinks, you can pay $17 for $40 with this code PRO1. This will deduct $3.00 off your purchase. All you have to do is enter PRO1 in the promo code box when you’re ready to check out and pay. This will be valid for today and tomorrow only. Let me know if you have any questions at all.

I hope you get to enjoy The Talk! :)

Salt n’ Pepa & Heavy D up in the limousine

Having both a blog and a full-time job that require a huge social media aspect is interesting. The question I’ve been trying to answer is, do I blend them? Do I let one cross over into the other? Is it okay to mix my personal blog with the business aspect of my life?

I’m pretty sure I’ve ultimately decided I’m not going to intertwine the two. At least for now. That will be too confusing/too much for me. However, today’s deal is really cool and I’m pumped about it so I figured I would share. I won’t bombard you with the daily Saves on my blog, if you’re interested please sign up for the daily email that way you’ll know what we’re featuring every day. We get some really awesome Saves so it’s worth checking out!

Anyway, it truly is a company/idea I believe in, so that’s why I’m sharing this with you guys. Eversave really helps connect the community through getting great deals with local merchants, donating percentages of the Saves back to local charities/school foundations and getting new customers in the door to these restaurants, spas, salons, etc. I hope you like it! Any questions, feel free to email me, dailycraic@gmail.com. Any local charities you’d love to see partnered with Eversave, give me a shout as well and we can work to make it happen.

So, today and tomorrow we’re featuring Sunset Limousine on our site. You pay $50 to get $100 towards any limo or party bus rental. Personally I think this is pretty sweet. We friggin loved party buses in college, they were such a great time for birthday parties, so this would definitely be good if you have a birthday or a friend’s birthday coming up. Also great for wedding parties or bachelorettes. Good for Pat’s games, concerts, kids birthdays, etc. If you like the sound of it, check it out! Thanks for listening to my schpeal. :)
