BCAE's List: Top 5 Things To Do in Boston this Fall!

Posted by Jamie Christo on Fri, Aug 17, 2012

As the air starts to chill during these late August evenings and you realize summer is slipping away, don’t panic if you haven’t thought about what to do this autumn.   If you are looking for fun things to do in Boston, look no further.  The BCAE is brimming with sensational classes this fall.  Check out our top five:

1.  Skip the bar, and become the bartender!     

Feeling tired with the same old bar scene in Boston?  Learn to mix your own libations at a BCAE cocktail class.  On September 17th, join us for The Arrrrrrrt of the Cocktail: Fun with Rum.  Mixologist Domingo Martin Barres embraces his love of rum and International Talk Like a Pirate Day as he creates seaworthy cocktails like “Captain Jack,” “Walk the Plank,” and “Barbery Coast.” 

2.  Find a new place to eat.

Dying to try that hot chef’s new restaurant?  Taste the food and meet the chef with the BCAE’s Celebrity Chef series.  Each term, find 6 of Boston’s hottest chefs cooking at the BCAE kitchens. 

Great things to do in Boston at the BCAE!

3.  Try something new.

Take for $10 is back for the third year running.  If you haven’t already registered, you better move fast.  These classes offer you a preview of an instructor or sampling of a longer class for just $10.  So if you’ve been dying to learn the piano or test your hand a watercolor, check it off your list this September with Take for $10.

4.  Mix and mingle.

Boston can be a tough city to mingle in.  Get out of your comfort zone and meet some new people at a wine & cheese reception for new art gallery exhibition “Upscale: Boston Goes Big.”  Photographer (and BCAE instructor) Chris Padgett displays a new view of the city in these large scale photographs.  RSVP required!

5.  Ditch the gym!

And get outside.  Enjoy the last few weeks of evening sunlight, crisp fall air, and gorgeous crimson leaves while out on a run.  Never been running before?  We have you covered with Running for Beginners on September 12th

No matter what is on your fall “to-do list,” the BCAE can help get you started, check it off, or give you something new to add.  Browse all of our classes to see what else is in store!

Celebrate St Patrick's Day at the BCAE!

Posted by Jamie Christo on Fri, Mar 09, 2012

Irish Whiskey Tasting on March 16th!Go against the grain this St. Patrick’s Day, and forego the green beer.  Join us on Friday, March 16th for a good ole’ fashioned Irish Whiskey Tasting from 7:30pm – 8:30pm.  Instructor, and Master of Scotch, Brad Jarvis will take you through the contrasting flavors of Northern Irish styles and Southern Irish styles, as well as introduce you to blended, pot still style, peated and in-peated single malt style.  This class will get your taste buds primed and ready for the main “seisiún” on Saturday, March 17th

After St.Patrick’s Day, feel free to come back and expand your Wine and Spirits knowledge at the BCAE with a host of great libations classes.  Learn more about Scotch and Whiskey with “How Taxes & Laws Created Whiskey Flavors” on April 13th or “Scotch Tasting” on April 20th.

If you prefer a cocktail, we have Jackson Cannon from The Hawthorne coming in to teach “Classic Cocktails” on April 24th.  As one of the country’s most acclaimed mixologists, this throw back to classic cocktails will be a testament to the craft cocktail movement.

Or if it is wine you are looking to learn more about, we have several wine tastings through out March and April.  Learn about the difference between French and Italian wines in “Between the Vines: Italyvs France” on March 22nd. 

Whatever your fancy, you will find it here.  Browse all of our Wine & Spirits classes now!
