If you just can’t wait ’til 2023 to check out Equal Measure, the forthcoming Fenway-area cocktail bar from Garrett Harker and Jackson Cannon, snag a reservation at Offsuit on a Monday night in October for a little sneak peek pop-up experience. The Leather District speakeasy, a swanky offshoot of Troquet on South, will be hosting Cannon (known for his legendary skill and the bar programs at Eastern Standard, Island Creek Oyster Bar and The Hawthorne) and a rotating cast of some of Boston’s favorite barkeeps as they try out some recipes for the new joint.
Go ahead and book your spot online here (like, right now – they’ll sell out fast). Each 90-minute visit is $45 per guest (not including tax and gratuity) and includes two cocktails plus appetizers created by chef Nemo Bolin. It’s the perfect chance to catch up with all bar folk who’ve been in hibernation or got shuffled around during Covid, and engage in a bit of nighttime shenanigans too. Mika Klos-Shakaid currently of The Wig Shop will be first up on October 3rd but you’ll want to follow Cannon on IG, or check out Offsuit on IG or the Offsuit website for updates.
