Diner’s Agenda is snowed out.
Tuesday, January 15
•Way back in November, Erwin Ramos and Ivan Torres of Ole Mexican Grill were invited to the James Beard House in New York to throw a Day of The Dead celebration. Now, two months later, they’re finally bringing the party back to Cambridge with a seven course dinner featuring traditional dishes from Veracruz and Oaxaca. Call (617) 492-4495 to save your place.

•There’s something very appealing about throwing a tapas party, since it hasn’t been done to death. Unfortunately, however, we have no idea how to make interesting tapas that are not just pieces of jamón serrano and Manchego laid out on plates. Enter Gordon’s Fine Wine & Culinary Center, which is offering a 6:30pm class on Spanish tapas and wine taught by Gerald Lopez of the Elephant Walk. The $60 class will teach students how to make four different tapas, which is more than enough to throw a party. Reservations may be made online. [Gordon’s]
•Between that upcoming raw foods restaurant and the new Veggiest feature on Bostonist, Boston vegans are sort of having a moment, no? Their reign of terror/glory continues with a vegan dinner at Chez Henri. $50 gets you five courses, including a “Mexican ‘Chocolate’ Banana Tart with Celtic salted ‘caramel’.” Call (617) 354-8980 to get in on the meat and dairy free goodness.

•You know what we love? The BBC. No, not the British Broadcasting Corporation (oh, who are we kidding? We love that, too.), but the Berkshire Beer Company. Church will be hosting the brewers for a five-course dinner with beer pairings at 7:30. The courses seem fairly luxurious for $45, so we strongly encourage you to call (617) 236-7600 to save your spot. [Church]
