Diner’s Agenda: Five Days Of Fun

Diner’s Agenda is pumped for the three-day weekend.

Friday, January 18
•We enjoyed the 2005 movie Sideways, but we didn’t exactly understand why every critic was hailing it like the damn second coming (unless it’s just because many film critics are middle-aged men). Nevertheless, we enjoyed the movie and Thomas Hayden Church’s role sticks with us and the viewing party (complete with wine tasting!) at Gordon’s will probably be pretty fun. The party starts at 8pm, and tickets, which cost $35, may be purchased online. [Gordon’s]

Saturday, January 19
•Rabbit is one of our favorite meats to order in restaurants, but we’re scared to death of cooking it at home. Fortunately, Radius is offering a cooking class that seems to be targeted specifically at us. The 11am-2pm class will focus on cooking game meats. $125 gets you a demonstration and a tasty lunch. Call (617) 426-1234 to save your spot. [Radius]
•The Celebrity Chefs series at the Fairmont Copley Plaza continues with a lesson from Chris Douglass of Icarus. As always, class runs from 1pm-3pm and tickets, which cost $60, can be purchased online. [Boston Center for Adult Education]

Monday, January 21
•Andy Husbands and Ed Doyle of Tremont 647 are planning a culinary trip to Puglia, Italy and, in celebration, they’ve invited La Morra chef Josh Ziskin over to collaborate on an Italian feast. $39 gets you a glass of Prosecco, appetizers, and a four-course meal. The fun begins at 6:30. Call (617) 266-4600 to reserve. [Tremont 647]

Tuesday, January 22
•Boston Event Guide is hosting a very promising Spanish wine dinner at 7pm at Tasca. $79 gets you five courses with appropriate wine pairings, including a first course described as a “feast of traditional Spanish tapas.” Make your reservation online. [Boston Event Guide]
