Of all the days of the week, Monday gets the worst rap, perhaps deservedly so. You have to wake up early after two precious days of un-alarmed sleep, you have to face an entire week's worth of your work to-do list before the prospect of a break, and at the end of the day, you know there are still so many days of drudgery before you that you feel as though you've hardly even made a dent in your march towards the weekend.
This coming Monday, May 24th, however, you can turn that all around with a visit to the Coolidge Corner location of Finale desserterie and bakery.
From 6:30-8 that night, the bakery/restaurant will be hosting a beer and dessert pairing event, bringing you five of their famous indulgences (including creme brulee, cheesecake, and "dark chocolate decadence") alongside five of their favorite beers (I, for one, am already drooling at the prospect of local favorite Dogfish Head's Raison D'etre).
The best part of all? Your night of dessert and drinking decadence will only run you $19.99. Given Boston's often-steep beer prices, that means you'll be snagging a great deal before you sink your teeth into even one of the bakery treats.
So look forward to Monday for once...and make sure to pack a couple of Advil for Tuesday.
Finale Desserterie and Bakery beer and dessert pairing event will be held Monday, May 24th 2010, from 6:30-8 at the Coolidge Corner location, 1306 Beacon St., Brookline, 617.232.3233. For more details, or to see the entire list of planned dessert and beer pairings, visit event website.
