Not too far from Davis, the Winter Hill Brewing Company opened today, serving Counter Culture coffee in the mornings. Their evening brewery opens soonish.
(Earlier post on this subject here.)
Forge Baking Company presents our first in a series of workshops. Intro to Coffee and Pour Overs will be an interactive educational 2 hour class with Brendan, our Coffee Trainer. Brendan will be covering the history of coffee; there will be a multimedia presentation as well as a coffee tasting component. The class will highlight pour over technique, as well as offer a platform for participants to make pour overs, and focus on things like grind settings, water, weight, and the timing of a pour over in order to yield a consistently great cup of coffee. Each participant will receive a 12oz bag of an offering from Intelligentsia Coffee upon completion of the class as well as a 10% discount on all retail items purchased that night.
They have six barstools and room for about the same number of standees, so it's not going to be a place to hang out for a long time.
Monday, July 27 at 6pm Rebekah Gewirtz is sponsoring this meeting with the developer, architect and attorney (R.G. Di Girolamo to answer questions about this shop. The notice was on a flyer put on my porch.
Anyone know anything about this? The credit union is there now.
(Kindred is the most perplexing business failure I've ever seen in Davis Square. After two and a half years of planning and construction, it sort of opened last December, only to close less than four months later.)
Here's a very fun and laid-back holiday bike ride. There's some singing, some biking, and a lot of eating and drinking - and it all raises funds for Horizons for Homeless Children (or you may donate a bike to Bikes Not Bombs). No need for any talent in the singing or biking - only enthusiasm is needed!
PS: Yes, it's the same day as the Jingle Bell Run - both are great events, so just choose if you'd rather sit on your butt or run :)
On Sunday, December 14th, bring family and friends to Arlington for the 18th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride, a leisurely and festive bike parade to Boston and back. This 22-mile ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street – we stop and sing carols for passersby, and just parade along showing some creative holiday spirit.
There will be free hot mulled cider and freshly-brewed coffee and pastries thanks to our starting-point hosts at the Kickstand Café. We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square, courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association!
It’s a parade, not a race – so if you have a bicycle, we’d love your holiday spirit along for the ride!
New this year: Crowded garage? Bring a used adult or child-sized bike to donate to Bikes Not Bombs and ride for free! Bicycle donation guidelines are here.

Established in 2003, Sherman predates many other things people now associate with Union Square: the farmers' market, the Fluff festival, other ArtsUnion events, Bloc 11, Union Square Main Streets, and trendy ethnic restaurants.
Since their Facebook page could disappear soon after they close, I'm repeating their entire announcement behind this lj-cut:( Sherman Cafe's closing announcement )
They also commented on Union Square Main Streets' Facebook page:( comment )
