Haven’t yet finished– or even started– your holiday shopping? Let me turn your attention, if I may, to alcohol. In the spirit of celebration, these Boston-area shops and distilleries have the perfect libations-based gift to share with a loved one (or keep for yourself.)

DRINK: East Village Cocktail Bars

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/wayland-300x250.jpg

Every now and then I love a good cocktail.  Mostly when I have dinner I drink wine and when I’m out with friends I opt for beer or cider, but there is something about the winter that just makes me want a really good whiskey cocktail.  And while there are a seemingly endless number of [...]

FOOD: Istana Sushi & Wok [Hoboken, NJ]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/IMG_6507-e1418362280721.jpg

Continuing my cold weather tradition of never leaving my apartment unless absolutely necessary, I managed to pinpoint a spot that allows me to get my sushi fix from the comfort of my couch. Similar to the way I discovered Americana Grill and Cafe, I chose to order from Istana Sushi and Wok of Hoboken in [...]

 [Photo from Backpacking Bex] Lil Frankie‘s is one of those places I’ve heard about and knew where it was in a general sense, but walking past it the other day brought it to the forefront of my mind and immediately on top of my list of places to check out. Before I even get into [...]

FOOD: Onieals [Hoboken, NJ]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_6352-e1416974863215.jpg

As an outdoor drinking and eating enthusiast, I find it highly important not to sacrifice ambiance just because I am forced off the rooftop and into a darkened dining room. Onieals, seated on the corner of 4th and Park in Hoboken, makes the best of the colder months spent indoors by providing meals that stick [...]

FOOD: Philly and NYC’s Han Dynasty

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/dandan-300x250.jpg

I found myself in the City of Brotherly Love for Thanksgiving.  Tired of turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing sandwiches, I was craving something that made me want to scream, “Haan!”  Cueing the phrase that French Montana has made famous, you might think I would have opted for Moroccan but I wanted some spicy Sichuan.  Although [...]

FOOD: DCity Smokehouse [DC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/dcsmp-300x250.jpg

Over the weekend, I was craving some authentic barbecue.  We could spend hours arguing about whether Memphis, Kansas City, Texas, or Carolina style barbecue is the best.  For me, I love a great dry rub over sauced up meat any day and DCity Smokehouse did not disappoint. The smell coming from this place would satisfy [...]

[Photo from 8th Street Wine Cellar website] New York is full of cozy date spots or places to kick back with a bottle of wine.  But sometimes there can be almost too many and it might feel overwhelming.  So let me recommend one place I really enjoyed: 8th Street Wine Cellar.  Located on, well, 8th [...]

As an extension of the locally-focused catering company, The Table can normally only be reserved for private dinner parties of 10-20.
