La Rana Rossa Hosting Wine Night; Movie Night; Santa, Too!

La Rana Rossa is having a very busy December, as the Green Street restaurant is holding a wine night with Blanchards Wine & Spirits, hosting a movie night of a beloved holiday classic, and Santa will also be visiting later in the month.

On Thursday, Dec. 8th at 7 pm, La Rana Rossa is hosting its second wine tasting featuring John Paul Kaminga of Blanchards Wine & Spirits. For $30 guests will enjoy three wines, salad and their choice of pizza from the evening’s menu.

After La Rana Rossa received its wine and beer license in September, Brad Brown, chef/owner, of La Rana Rossa and the Blue Frog Bakery, wanted to start hosting monthly wine dinners.

“Kaminga is good at explaining the [wine] notes and what it brings out in food,” said Brown.

On Dec. 12th La Rana Rossa is hosting a showing of “A Christmas Story” and kids are encouraged to come in their pajamas while they enjoy pizza with their parents (who can also enjoy some wine and beer).  The movie starts at 6:30 pm.

And don’t forget about meeting Santa at the restaurant! St. Nick will be at La Rana Rossa on Saturday, Dec. 17th for a breakfast at 8:30 pm. The breakfast will feature a $10 children’s prix fixe menu of either waffles and syrup or scrambled eggs and toast, fruit cup, juice box or milk and a goodie bag. Adults will have to order from the regular breakfast menu. Space is limited so reservations are requested by calling 617-524-5373. But everyone is welcome to visit Santa Claus.
