It’s back!  Head to Amrhein’s (80 West Broadway) for their famous Pumpkin Risotto.  It’s back in all its rich and deliciousness and we guaranteed you’ll feel instantly comforted with the first bite.  (Bonus: it’s served in a real hollowed out pumpkin!)

Buy the Grape! Social Wines (52 West Broadway) has a new wine online shopping experience for you! Buy The Grape focuses on a different grape each month and the wine experts at Social Wines will give you little lesson as well as curate different expressions of that grape varietal. The first grape is Cabernet Sauvignon.  You’ll get 10% off six bottles, 15% off twelve. Wines purchased online can be picked up at the shop (call ahead for curbside delivery!) or you can schedule local delivery ($75 minimum purchase for South Boston, $100 other Boston neighborhoods.) Most deliveries can be scheduled within 24 hours.  Talk about making drinking wine even easier! 

Sip and shop! Southie turns pink for the Ellie Fund!  Make a plan to sip and shop your way around Southie on Thursday, October 15th from 6pm to 8pm.  Some local South Boston businesses will be participating in the Southie Turns Pink Shopping Night Out!   A portion of the sales will be donated directly to the Ellie Fund – a local non-profit dedicated to providing critical services including childcare, grocery shopping and meal deliveries to patients with breast cancer and their families.   Habit, Ku De Ta, Wears + Wares, Pretty Reckless will be serving up some pink drinks and snacks and 20% of all sales will go directly to the Ellie Fund. The Beauty Bar will have pink hair extensions to brighten up your do for a $10 donation.   Raise your glass to the Ellie Fund at Lincoln Tavern, Loco Taqueria, and the Playwright.  For the entire month of October, be on the lookout for specialty pink cocktails and order one (or two) up!  $2-$4 from each one sold will go directly to the Ellie Fund.  Spend a little money for an amazing cause!  For more information about Do Good and the Ellie Fund, visit: http://elliefund.org
