Sophisticated men require two things: the right drink, and deep knowledge of his city's underground offerings -- but while the former's easily acquired, the latter's elusive, especially if you're content sitting at home, slowly sipping the right drink. Fortunately, the right drink's here to help: Jameson's Insider Discoveries.
Founded in 1780 and now the world's fastest growing whiskey, Jameson's taking the savvy only a 228-year-old man of leisure could possess, and applying it to pinpointing Boston's smoothest under-the-radar action. The lineup:
Jack Threads: Jack posts one sweet article of streetwear per day, marked down at least 50%; right now, they're letting Thrillist readers skip their month-long approval process and snag membership right away -- saving you from waiting around, and the 50% markdown in pride associated with a denied application.
Hot Four Burgers Slider Action: Ask the burgertender for the off-the-menu Slider Package, which comes with mini-versions of all four of their sammiches (Brandt Beef, Salmon, Blue Mango Veggie, Cranberry Chutney Turkey); mention Thrillist for free fries and off-the-menu dipping sauces which, though creative, couldn't possibly be wackier than Cranberry Chutney.
Fresh Gear Tip for Bodega: On Monday, Bodega gets in a hyper-limited shipment of burly winter coats from Seattle's Maiden Noir, and a nubuck & ostrich Nike Court Force High luxe pack. Show up early to snag one of the few pairs available, but don't put them on your feet 'til you've waived them in the faces of all the late arrivals who didn't receive this email.
Off-menu Drinks & Free Grub at Union: Ask the bartender for an apple-brandy Chai Side Car or an Apple Blossom (vanilla and apple vodka w/ cider). Then request your Thrillist-only free bar bites (BBQ beef short ribs, and goat cheese crostini w/ pear apple chutney), and chuckle as the fellow next to you attempts to get the same deal by calling out another publication, like Auto Trader.
