The Perfect Way to Wrap Up a Visit to the Sidewalk Bazaar… or Work Day

You’ve strolled along Main Street, checked out the great deals (50% off a huge selection of items at Life is Good anyone?!?), picked up some great gifts to stash away for the kids, and even toyed with the idea of buying a hole new wardrobe of flowy skirts… now what?

APPY HOUR!

Head to Duncan Street, make a right and claim your seat at the Alchemy Bar for Appy Hour. Alchemy offers an Appy Hour menu everyday of the week from 5:00 – 6:00 PM at the bar.  The Appy Hour menu consist of a selection of delicious appetizers for just $6. Yes, just $6. Alchemy_Cocktail

So make your way to Alchemy bar at 5:00, admire your Bazaar purchases (Jessica, the fabulous bartender, will love checking out what you snagged), sip a cocktail and enjoy the Appy Hour menu.

You Just Gotta Try It

Alchemy Bloody Marys

Yes, that’s a house made jalapeño popper and bacon.

On the left: The Bloody Hammer with house infused jalapeño tequila, topped with house made jalapeño popper

AND to the right: The Bacon Bloody with house infused bacon vodka, topped with candied bacon.

These are just two of the many delicious cocktails on Alchemy’s Brunch menu. Alchemy serves brunch on Saturday & Sunday from 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM, with live music on Sundays starting at noon.

You have to try this…

Alchemy just introduced a new menu, with plenty of delicious summery items like the Scallop Crudo and First Pick Strawberry Salad, but the dish we can’t get enough of is the Potato Croquette.

It’s like arancini meets mozzarella stick meets potato, but its somehow surprising light.  Trust us, you just need to try it.

North Shore Bakes for Breast Cancer!

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer raises money for breast cancer care and research through delicious dessert-filled events.

For the second year in a row, the Serenitee Restaurant Group, including Alchemy and Latitude 43 in Gloucester, is participating in the week-long event.  For the event, each restaurant has created their own special dessert, like Latitude 43’s BRA-zilian Panna Cotta, and 100% of the sales from that dessert will go directly to Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer.

To participate, all you have to do is come in to Latitude 43, Alchemy or one of the other participating restaurants and order the special dessert. It’s that simple!

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer will be held Monday, May 4 through Sunday, May 10, 2015.

Last year, Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer had almost 350 participants in over 100 Massachusetts communities and raised over $78,000. Let’s make this year even better!

Click here for more dessert info.

Alchemy will feature a Chocolate Swiss Roll with chocolate mousse, fresh raspberries and raspberry coulis.

Latitude will offer the BRA-zilian Panna Cotta with coconut, cinnamon, dulce de leche and caramelized bananas.
