On Saturday, December 3rd the lovely people from Area Four will be hanging here at the shop. If you are local you should swing by for some delish desserts and coffee. Stel’s is open from 11-7 and Area Four will be with us from 12-5.

If you have not already experienced Area Four than this is a great opportunity to grab a little bite. Either way, we encourage you to stop by their Cambridge, MA digs to taste test some of their ridiculously sumptuous menu. Area Four is a cafe/bakery/bar/oven with an emphasis on local flavors and organic, sustainable ingredients. The wooden ovens handle the food, the coffee is that of a connoisseur’s dreams and if it’s a sweet tooth you are looking to satiate; they have a whole slew of decadent options for you.  At the bar you will find plenty to sip on including over 30 types of Whisky, 12 local beers on tap and Boston’s first all kegged wine program.

Is your mouth watering yet?

Stel’s x Warby Parker Party

Last Thursday night was the launch party for our collaboration with Warby Parker. We are proud to be the only shop in Boston carrying the eco conscious, feel good brand. For those of you who don’t know, Warby Parker is a revolutionary company who scoff in the face of overpriced and frankly, bland eye wear collections by creating stylish, well made frames for only 95 bucks a pop. To top it off, WP donates a pair of glasses to those in need for every pair sold.  We feel that Warby Parker and Stel’s are a match made in retail heaven. Our sartorial sensibilities are very similar and like Stel’s, Warby Parker is a close knit, friendly company that prides themselves on their customer service. Be sure to stop in and check out some of their prescription and sun wear frames.

We want to thank all of you for coming out and making the night a success, Harpoon for providing the drinks, Leonard Greco for manning the photobooth and snapping pics, and the entire Warby Parker team for all their hard work!

Full house!

Stels X Drink Party

Last week we held a private event here at our shop with the lovely people from drink who brought over a full bar and mixed up some delicious cocktails. As you can see above, they were fully enjoyed… maybe a bit too much.

A local spot, located on Congress Street, Drink is more about the art and experience of enjoying an after work cocktail than just “grabbing” a drink. They are infamous for not having a menu but tailoring each beverage to the customer. At drink you will be probed with questions about what alcohol base you like, do you prefer sweet or bitter? Then create your own customized libation just for you. To top it off the quality of every ingredient is top notch. The bitters, extracts, ect. are all homemade. Glasses are kept chilled, at room temperature, or warmed for your liking. Drink has a great speakeasy, prohibition kind of vibe that we dig. It’s a great spot so be sure to check it out. You can hit up their site HERE.

When the chance at bringing in Drink for a party at Stel’s was presented, it was a no brainer. We jumped at the opportunity and the results were fantastic. Everyone has had a great time and it was surely a night to remember. We kept it small and intimate with good friends and colleagues, amazing food, good drinks, and intriguing conversation. Our friend, Mike Russos, made a great playlist of mainly old soul music mixed in with some of our favorite contemporary artists. Misty and John from Drink served up the spirits. My favorite was the Buck, an intoxicating mix of Bourbon, honey, ginger, lemon, and a bit of soda water. At the end of the night the remaining Buck was poured into a silver bowl and we were all handed straws (as you can see from our pictures, we all got into the fun). Our friends pictured are Paul Grant, Liz Natola, Justin Molina, and myself.

Jackie Jenks (above) is pictured with the food table. By the end of the night, that table was empty.

I want to thank John, Misty, and the whole Drink team for extending their hospitality to us here at Stel’s The party was a complete success and they were so accommodating and kind!

Thanks guys!
