Diner’s Agenda: Back To School

Diner’s Agenda feels inspired by fall.

Monday, August 27
•Making pasta from scratch is one of our favorite activities. When done solo, it can be very meditative, but when done in a group and accompanied by wine, it’s hilarious and quite social. Experience the good times tonight at Marco, where chef Matthew Abdoo will be teaching an informal class on the making of “pici, orecchiette, gnocchi and more.” $95 gets you admission to the class, dinner, and wine. Class starts at 6:30 sharp, so make sure to save your place by calling (617) 742-1276. [Marco]

•As we mentioned this morning, it’s tomato time. UpStairs on the Square will be holding a five-course dinner at 6:30 honoring the lycopene-packed treat. It promises to be a delicious evening and, at $65, a relative bargain, but only a few seats are left, so call (617) 864-1933 ASAP to reserve. [UpStairs on the Square]
•The New England Aquarium continues its series of sustainable food dinners at 6:30, but this one has a twist! All three courses will be paired with Sam Adams beers instead of wine. Beer and fish are lovely together, so it should be a lot of fun. $75 gets you a cocktail reception, dinner, and dessert. Reservations may be made online. [New England Aquarium]
•Are you bored bored bored with your home cooking? Looking to spice things up in the kitchen? Head on over to the Boston Center for Adult Education to learn chef Andy Husbands’ (of Tremont 647 fame) secrets to adventurous American cuisine. The $80 fee includes plenty of food and cocktails in addition to the class itself. Registration may be done online. [Boston Center for Adult Education]
