By Spencer Buell· Devoted foodies and restaurant newbies love The Feed. Sign-up now for our twice weekly newsletter. Photo via TrilliumWhen the highly anticipated beer garden on the Greenway opens this summer, beers from none other than the venerated Trillium will be on tap, the park and beer-maker have just announced.Many of the details have yet to be revealed, but in a news release, the Greenway gave us a preview of what’s in store. The space will be on the plaza on the south side of High Street, right across from Rowes Wharf and the Boston Harbor Hotel. There aren’t any public renderings of how it will look just yet, and it isn’t clear what the capacity will be, but the space will have a “communal picnic-table aesthetic.”A rotating selection from Trillium beer will be on tap, and there are also plans for Trillium to serve a Greenway-exclusive brew. Pending approval of permits, the outdoor bar is expected to be open 3-5 days a week beginning sometime this summer, and the plan is to keep it open until October.In a release, the Greenway says it considered proposals from several other breweries and restaurants, but settled on Trillium, and said it was “excited” to do so.“The Greenway Conservancy brought food trucks and contemporary public art to Boston, and we expect the Beer Garden to be another innovative offering on The Greenway,” Greenway Conservancy Executive Director Jesse Brackenbury says in a written statement. “We’re so excited to present Trillium’s world-class beers in our beautiful park setting.”In just four years, Trillium has become one of the region’s most sought after beer brands and garnered acclaim around the world. But it’s still not all that easy to get your hands on one of their hoppy creations. The beer-maker does not have a taproom in Boston, although it has indicated it’s in the market for a Boston brewpub, and it did branch out into Canton last year. At their postage-stamp-size brewery in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood, the beer-maker sells growlers and reams of tall boys, but visitors aren’t allowed to drink pints of the product, or even taste it, on site. And right now, only a select few Boston bars carry Trillium. So locals have been clamoring for more ways to get their fix.“Finally having the opportunity to pour our beers in the heart of the city we love is a dream come true,” says Trillium co-founder Esther Tetreault, in a statement. “Our team has been waiting a long time to welcome people with a beer in Boston and we are thrilled to do so in one of Boston’s best public spaces!”Wine will also be served from the Massachusetts-based Westport Rivers Winery, which has gotten a good deal of attention itself, including from this magazine. A fun fact, according to a news release from the Greenway: The Westport Rivers Winery is where Trillium co-founders JC and Esther Tetreault got engaged. The two of them will be curating the varietals chosen for the space.The partnership should also help the park pay the bills. Pressure has mounted on the overseers of the popular public space to generate more revenue, particularly as a big dip in state funding kicks in this June. On its blog, the Greenway says it expanded its revenue to nearly $1 million last year from events, food trucks, a carousel, marketing contracts, and other public offerings. If you like the Greenway, sipping a brew there after work is but one way to lend a hand.The Greenway has dabbled in open-air adult beverages before, selling beer and wine at its outdoor Boston Calling Block Parties held in Dewey Square. And the park is following in the footsteps of Boston Winter, the successful ice skating-and-shopping concept that debuted on City Hall Plaza last year and included a sheltered ski lodge-style bar.Meanwhile, if this is your kind of thing, the city is weighing a full liquor license for the Lawn on D.Excited for summer yet?

Sign-up now for our twice weekly newsletter. 11/19/2018, 5:07 p.m. Photo via iStockphoto.com/ZoneCreativeWith Thanksgiving on the horizon, you’ve probably been inundated with clickbait lists about how to avoid family drama at the dinner table. “Don’t talk politics!” “Leave Trump out of Turkey-day!”Bo-ring. Look, if you want to leave controversial current events for a different forum—say, Facebook rants under a MAGA-spouting uncle’s deplorable memes—we get it. But a little lively debate is still a nice way to spice up bland small-talk with extended family you only see once a year. After all, is waxing poetic about the green bean casserole going to make a memorable impression? Is feigning interest in bocce tales from Gramps’ Florida retirement community really part of your personal brand? We thought not. So try tossing some of these food-related bombs on the dinner table, see how they land, and start a spat or two. You’ve got the next twelve months to make up, anyway.My favorite pizza—Papa Gino’s! by Carol on Flickr / Creative Commons“So, how ’bout that slow death of Papa Gino’s?”If you want to see the claws come out, interrogate a lifelong Masshole over their blind loyalty to any expired or expiring regional chain that conjures 1980s-New England nostalgia; the fur will fly faster than you can say “Jordan Marsh.” So go ahead, raise the specter that Papa Gino’s—which, didja hear, just filed for bankruptcy and is on its way out, I bet–isn’t actually that good anyway, and deserves to die in a day and age when fast food doesn’t have to be so—pedestrian. Sure, you’ll be called a snob by your cousin who carries a torch for the joint just because he has warm, fuzzy memories of splattering his Larry Bird jersey with tomato sauce at fourth grade pizza parties. But you can point to this high-low mix of favorites, and the recent ranking of Regina Pizzeria as the best pie slinger in the country, to prove your populism while maintaining that Papa, if he passes, won’t even be that missed.Photo by Christopher Churchill“Wanna see the Top 50 Restaurants in Boston?” Here’s one that’ll get everyone at the table on totally different pages: from your in-the-know niece with the foodie Instagram account to your Cool Aunt who claims she once made out with Todd English at Mohegan. (She’s currently necking with a bottle of Chardonnay.) Our just-launched list of the Top 50 Restaurants in Boston counts through the city’s best spots across cuisines and neighborhoods. But hell, we know these things are always subjective, so use us to incite some spirited debate over the rankings—is Alden & Harlow overrated, or Neptune Oyster listed too low?—and do your best to justify your favorite places to feast, even in the face of ferocious second (and third, and fourth) opinions. See? Now you know how we feel.“Why can’t you find good [insert foodstuff here] in Boston?” It’s only a matter of time before someone’s significant other from New York bemoans the “sorry state” of Boston’s restaurant scene. (We get it. You majored in Bagels at NYU. Pass the peas.) Are you gonna sit there and take it? Nay! Defend the honor of your city from out-of-town pundits who ought not to judge Boston by one meal at their hotel bar. Or stir the pot playing devil’s advocate, second the suggestion that Boston lacks national restaurant award winners, and cite this recent snubbing from the Eater Essential Restaurants list. This essay outlines some of the obstacles Hub chefs face in pushing innovation forward, from high rents to exorbitant liquor licenses, so you can offer a few informed solutions while you’re at it.“Aren’t you excited they’re putting a Chick-fil-A in Copley?”Okay, okay. We promised to avoid politics, but it’s 2018: There’s not a damn thing left that can’t be made partisan, including chicken sandwiches. Peeps have been squawking about the soon-to-be first Boston location of Chick-fil-A, either because they can’t wait to wrap their talons around a spicy deluxe or can’t believe that friends and family are still willing to spend money at the fast food chain, infamous for its financial donations to anti-LGBTQ organizations. The right side of the dinner table will likely point out that you can’t possibly know the political associations of everything you eat; the left side will reasonably counter that if you do, you ought to act. Everyone will, eventually, look to the one gay relative to speak on behalf of The Community, and frankly, you guys, it’s my holiday too and I’m taking the day off. Settle this one yourselves.Brian Young photo by Galdones Photography / Adrienne Wright photo courtesy of Boston Urban Hospitality“Who are you rooting for on Top Chef?”The 16th season of Top Chef, which premieres on December 6, is set in Kentucky–but two of the contestants hail from Boston: Adrienne Wright, executive chef of Boston Urban Hospitality Group restaurants Deuxave, Boston Chops, and dBar; and Brian Young, chef de cuisine at Cultivar. While the rest of the fam goes over the football pool, find your fellow food TV fans, pick teams and place bets on whether Wright or Young will go further in the competition. (Suggested prize: Losers pay for dinner at the winning chef’s spot.) Don’t know enough to have a strong opinion? Who cares! Pretend it’s Twitter, and shoot your mouth off anyway. Or, if you want to be more responsible, plan to do reconnaissance at the contestants’ respective restaurants. It’s vital research. Who could argue with that?

5/14/2019, 11:54 a.m. Print By Tessa Yannone· Fitness This Women-Only Fitness Retreat Will Leave You Feeling Inspired Join Boston-based fitness entrepreneurs Athena Concannon and Lauren Bradley at the Soul Sista Summit this summer. Lauren Bradley and Athena Concannon / Photo providedSorting through fitness summits and workshops is a tall task, especially in the summer when there seems to be a different one every single weekend. From attending and hosting our own, here’s our two cents on knowing what’s worth your money: Look for ones that not only have a killer lineup of speakers but that give you actionable next-steps in your fitness routine, a group of people to support you, and lunch (duh).In all seriousness, this women-only fitness retreat, hosted by Boston-based fitness instructors and entrepreneurs Athena Concannon and Lauren Bradley, promises all of those things, and more. The two are bringing the Soul Sista Summit to the District Hall in the Seaport on June 22 and June 23. Concannon tells me their “goal through this retreat is to make the weekend a place where women can step away from their to do’s and busy lives and immerse themselves in their health and personal development.”Saturday’s agenda includes break-out sessions about manifesting your own wellness vision, shifting your beliefs, and creating a 90-day action plan, among other things. And closes out with a cocktail party. While Sunday is all about the speakers and presenters. The keynote speaker is Dr. Lisa Lewis, who you may recognize from our most recent post on navigating social media. She will present on using psychological skills, to enhance motivation, initiate regular exercise and wellness habits, and how to respond to barriers that might interfere with you reaching your goals.Other speakers include Candace Smith, the CEO of Beauty of Strength and Sam Vander Wielen, an attorney turned coach who helps other entrepreneurs grow legally legit businesses through her custom templates. Smith will talk about the power of strength training and Vander Wielen will talk about taking chances and trying new things (in business and in life). Each day includes a workout as well so you can get your heart pumping a little.After both starting their own fitness company’s in 2016 and making some mistakes and taking messy action along the way, Concannon and Bradley want to share everything they’ve learned with you. You’ll walk away from the weekend not only inspired, but with a new network of friends, a goodie bag full of fitness apparel and samples, and a Soul Sista tank (cause who doesn’t love free fitness swag?).$399, June 22-23, all-day, District Hall, 75 Northern Ave., Boston, achievewithathena.com.
