Kotobukiya, The Japanese Market for Boston

I just came back from Kotobukiya, the Japanese grocery store located in Porter Exchange. This is one of my favorite places to go to in the Boston-area (it's located in Cambridge). If you're feeling a little sad to be back from your recent trip to Japan or if you just want to try out some fantastic Japanese products, including food (excellent seafood and Japanese rice), magazines, cosmetics, then head to Kotobukiya. You will be inspired by the fresh foods and the cool fashion magazines not to mention the candies and chocolates. If only the shop were bigger! It's as if you were back in Tokyo...

The Beehive is a new restaurant, bar, and performance venue that has just opened on Tremont Street in the Boston Center for the Arts complex. So excited! 6,500 square feet divided into several dining areas, two bars, and an outdoor terrace and Mediterranean-influenced food by chef Adam Halberg (you may remember him from Via Matta).

Museum of Fine Arts Summer Party

If you're in Boston on Saturday, June 16th, you must come to the MFA Museum Council's fourth annual summer party. It's a black-tie event and guaranteed to be so much fun. Support young artists in the silent art auction. The theme this year is influenced by the painting Bacchus and Ariadne situated in the museum's Koch Gallery. DJ Deja--one of Boston's finest DJs!--will be there to inspire party-goers to dance. The menu, catered by the museum's own restaurant, Bravo, will create delicious Greek finger foods and desserts. Open bar. Best of all? The proceeds from the tickets go towards the building of the new wing.
