Island Creek Oyster Bar – Burlington is inviting two iconic New England cideries (yes, two!) to their stomping grounds on Friday, April 19th, and you’ll want to be part of the apple-y action. Come to the suburban outpost starting at 6:00pm to meet the makers and get blown away by chef Matt Celeste’s over-the-top cheeseboard, 10 cider tastings and four delicious courses. Tickets are $65 per person plus a processing fee — grab yours here before they’re gone.

Looking to take part in New England Cider Fest a bit closer to the city? You’re in luck. Visit ICOB – Burlington’s sister spot in Kenmore Square on Wednesday, April 17th from noon to 2:00pm for some not-yet-released sippers and the chance to chat with the crafters themselves (registration is free, but required). Then, head to The Hawthorne, Island Creek Oyster Bar’s next door neighbor, for an ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar pop-up — the D.C. based eatery is setting up shop from 2:00 to 8:00pm. And don’t miss Row 34’s (complimentary) drink pink party that’s all about rosé cider on Friday, April 19th between 11:00am and 1:00pm.
