Third stop is the 4-star restaurant of another James Beard Award winner, Michael Schlow. Celebrity chef Ming Tsai recently tweeted that Radius serves the best hamburger in Boston. We’ll let you be the judge of that! Last stop is the InterContinental Hotel’s French restaurant, Miel, where the place is a-buzzin’…literally! At Miel, we’ll sample honey produced by its own 60,000 bees. We’ll also enjoy its fabulous desserts. How does “Best of Boston” creme brulee sound? Join us as we “Stroll. Sample. Savor. Repeat.” while enjoying a progressive meal created by some of Boston’s most popular chefs. Read the rest of this entry »

Hot Tickets: Boston

Here are this week’s Hot Tickets in the Boston area. Check back every Thursday at noon, EST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Friday, February 10 I BIG RED DOOR & Other Stories  Urbanity presents six works, four choreographed by director Betsi Graves, modeled as a series of short dance stories. In “Big Red Door,” doors become symbols for entrances and exits in life, snapshots in time. Graves draws inspiration from Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse Five,” building a post-modern take on time-travel, memories and dreams, births and deaths. In a second story, “Little Blue Dot,” Graves is inspired by GPS and Google Maps. Three soloists dive into journeys weighed with human emotion  love, guilt and grief. The work questions whether looking at ourselves aerially alters our travel emotions. In an unusual collaboration, music for “Little Blue Dot” is composed by award-winning composer Mu-Xuan Lin and performed live by Lin and other musicians. A third chapter, “Green Grass Grows,” is an ensemble piece set to the music of Philip Glass. Through sweeping symmetry, Graves asks observers to explore the natural wonder of grass, the ultimate mediator between soil and sun.  In a fourth tale, “Little Black Dress,” Graves turns to neoclassical movement to tell a story of feminine coming of age through cultural assimilation.

** This performance will also be appearing on Saturday, February 11 at Quinsigamond Community College. Pick up your tickets for this performance here. Read the rest of this entry »
