TUES 2/17: Art, Chocolate & Beer, Jazz

Soojin Kim, Cracker Box, 2008. Oil on canvas.
Did you bum around on your long weekend? There's free stuff to do tonight.

--------------------------------------------------------------

TUES 2/17

5pm to 7pm
2009 "Student Annual Exhibition": Opening Reception
at Grossman Gallery & Anderson Auditorium, 230 The Fenway, Boston (School of the Museum of Fine Arts / The Fens)
FREE

Cookies and crackers may or may not be served tonight, but I'd like to think there's still a little in the budget for some red wine. The exhibit is comprised of pieces that have won awards in over the past year along with other "exceptional student work". More than 50 students are represented in various media (painting, photography, metals, glass, ceramics, etc), and will be on view through TUES 3/10.

TUES 2/17

5pm to 7pm
Taza & Chocolate Milk Stout Tastings
at Cambridge Brewing Company, 1 Kendall Sq, Cambridge
FREE

Cambridge Brewing Company has a new chocolate-infused milk stout brew called "CaCow!" that was aged with cacao nibs from Somerville's Taza Chocolate. Taza is going to bring some chocolate to make that sample of the stout taste even more like dessert.

TUES 2/17

7:30pm
Esperanza Spalding
at David Friend Recital Hall, 921 Boylston St, Boston (Berklee / Back Bay)
FREE

As part a "Jazz as Culture, Language, Being, and Music" series, bassist/vocalist Esperanza Spalding returns to Berklee where she studied -- and taught. As an up and coming jazz artist with serious chops playing a big stand-up bass, Esperanza also has a lovely voice that might even lead her to some cross-over success. I remember seeing her on David Letterman last year.
