On Wednesday, December 12th Lynn’s Downtown Bistro kicks off its monthly beer and wine dinner series by welcoming Harpoon brewer Ray Dobbins to pair some seasonal brews with a five-course menu from chef David Fitzgerald. The evening gets underway at 6:00pm with a UFO-fueled reception followed by dinner. Harppoon lovers won’t want to miss courses like beer-braised stuffed chicken wings with raspberry dressed tiny greens and a raspberry beer reduction glaze; and ale-simmered cassoulet of pork shoulder and cured bacon served de-constructed. Dinner costs $49.95 per person – Friends of Harpoon can take $10 off. Call 781.593.3111 to get the whole scoop or to save your spot.
