If the hammocks and Adirondack chairs on the BU Beach are any indication, spring has arrived. This weekend, you can support a local Asian fusion restaurant, join BU Hillel for Passover Seders, or celebrate Women’s History Month by learning about the impact women coaches have made on BU Athletics.
Double Chin describes itself as a modern Asian restaurant that serves Chinese dishes with a twist. There are fusion entrees, like a kimchi alfredo with pork belly, or a poutine made from waffle fries and “kimcheese,” traditional Chinese plates like bang bang shrimp and mapo tofu, and a wide selection of beverages, including boba tea (with and without alcohol). If you’re looking for a late-night meal or a filling lunch, Double Chin’s extensive menu has something flavorful to offer.
Double Chin, 86 Harrison Ave., Boston, is open from noon to 11 pm, Sunday through Thursday, and from noon to 1 am, Friday and Saturday. The restaurant offers takeout, delivery, and limited indoor seating. Check out the website to see the menu and to place an order.
Uvida is Boston’s first zero-waste shop. All of its products are vegan and plastic- and cruelty-free. Browse online or in person at the North End shop or the East Boston pop-up for items ranging from candles and soaps to mesh produce bags and charcoal bamboo dental floss.
Uvida, 28 Atlantic Ave., Boston, is open 10 am to 6 pm every day. The pop-up is at 123 Maverick St., East Boston, and is open 9 am to 7 pm, Monday through Saturday.
