Who, Wolf?

The who, the what, the where, in Boston.

The Where: Jamaica Plain

Jamaica Plain never truly gets the love that it deserves. Eager to escape everybody buzzing about Boston proper? A short jaunt on the Orange Line is just what the doctor ordered. Filled with trendy, hole-in-the-wall eateries and nightlife that’s so wonderfully off the radar, you might think twice about telling your friends. Thankfully, Who, Wolf? has you covered. Here are three of JP’s can’t miss spots guaranteed to have you coming back for more.

The Weekly Three: Tay

Spring has sprung! …right? I wore shorts yesterday, so we’re going to say yes. It is indeed spring. Students are agonizing over finals and, in my case, final papers. It’s significantly easier to be, ahem, borderline naked in public, and we’ve all got summer jobs, trips, and summer lovin’ on the brain. Here are my fairly relevant weekly three.

The Who: Erika Butler, a.k.a. The Fashionesta

image

Erika and I met at a Women In Business conference back in the fall. When I found out she had a blog, I knew it would be awesome, and therefore had to be featured on Who, Wolf? Her outfit killed in a crowd of Boston’s most ambitious lady business students (as in, women in head to toe black and 5 inch heels). Her blog was better than I could have imagined, so it’s my pleasure to share with you : The Fashionesta

The What: skinnyskinny

image Who, Wolf? cares deeply about your well-being. You might think I’m joking, but Evan and I lie awake at night, wondering if our readers are drinking enough water, getting enough rest, and eating enough kale. That’s why I’m going to drop some knowledge into your life: shower less, sleep more.

Hi, my name’s Taylor, and I’m here to tell you that the age of the personalized gift lives on. The days of gifting novelty socks are over (unless that’s what you really want).

The What: Slutcracker

Put up holiday decorations, snag some gifts, admire Christmas lights, roast chestnuts over an open fire, and see the Nutcracker. Bing, bang, boom, holiday complete. Right? Wrong. There’s a new holiday tradition in town, and I assure you, it’s going to blow those chestnuts out of the water. 

The Boston Herald described the Slutcracker as “the perfect legacy for Tchaikovsky.” I couldn’t have put it better myself, so I won’t. But beware; if you choose to be awesome and see this killer production, you will never see the Nutcracker in quite the same light.

Sound Bites: Holiday Happenings

The same scenario plays out every year without fail; Black Friday hits you like a yule log to the skull and BAM, you never seem to be able to escape the same three holiday songs until New Year’s Eve. Working in retail, this is something that hits terribly close to home. So like all great artists, my misery has inspired me to create something great. In this case, a batch of holiday tunes that won’t leave you pulling your hair out come Christmas day, because the last thing anyone wants to encounter on Christmas is a Scrooge.

The Where: South Street Diner

Have y’all noticed how topical we are here at Who, Wolf? We’re constantly talking about how it’s winter, the holiday season, or finals, as if you didn’t already know. Of course you know what time of year it is, you’re brilliant and attractive, which is why you read Who, Wolf? in the first place. But in case you forgot… Finals are here. I don’t know about you guys, but my college library closes at midnight, and I usually start studying around 9pm. Clearly there is a problem here.

And as always, we’re bringing you a solution. Pack up your back breaking textbooks, Bostonians, and head to South Street!

The Weekly Three - Tay

 

I welcome you to the holiday edition of The Weekly Three! Is it just me, or have my Three not been the most glamorous lately? It doesn’t matter, these are things you may actually use and buy, as opposed to this season’s $1,200 boots that only the 1% can afford and will be out of style in a year anyway. These are things that become necessities as we get deeper into winter. The sudden approach of 30 degree weather can be a bit of a shock, and Who, Wolf? is here to help you out.

The What: Lip Scrub

Chapped lips are just one of life in Boston’s many grievances. The price we pay for being better than any other city (seriously Paris, suck it) includes running the risk of splitting your lip when you so much as sneeze. No matter the amount of product you smear on your beautiful mouth, the walk from Kenmore to El Pelon leaves it dry, and that’s just gross. 

But the products we use, Burt’s Bees, EOS, Chapstick, only solve part of the dry lip conundrum. In order to make people want to make out with you again, you have to scrub away the dry skin, THEN apply product. Confused or grossed out? Don’t worry. Who, Wolf has got you covered.

The Who: Sky Ferreira

It’s been a difficult five years for Sky Ferreira.

The twenty year-old, who signed with Capitol/EMI Records when she was just fifteen, was discovered on MySpace by Swedish production duo Bloodshy & Avant after a chance response to one of her messages. Three failed electro-pop singles and an endorsement deal with Calvin Klein later, the singer’s debut album was shelved, and it seemed that Ferreira’s star seemed to burn out just as it started to shine. The L.A. born chanteuse changed her base to New York and managed to revive her image, trading slinky electro-pop for the more melancholy new wave sound on her new EP, Ghost. Ferreira stopped by TT the Bear’s in Cambridge yesterday evening for an intimate showcase of new tracks, which all but confirmed the fact that the former pop princess has surely morphed into the indie queen she was so destined to be.

The Where: El Pelón

Enchiladas were created by the god of tastebuds to get awesome people through the drearier parts of their lives (Hurricane Sandy, for example). Same with burritos, quesadillas, tortas, antojitos… et cetra. El Pelon does Mexican food the way it’s supposed to be done. Authentic and simple. None of this tequila bar crap. It gets major points for being by my campus, and while I’ve never been to the one in Brighton, I’m sure it’s equally lovely. If you don’t like Mexican food, there’s something wrong with you and you should seek help. If you do like Mexican food, read more about magical enchiladas.

The What: Kale

It’s no secret that I love kale. Gwyneth (Paltrow, if you guys aren’t on a first name basis with her like I am) turned me on to it. At first I was doubtful, I mean, I’m a good boy who always eats his vegetables but I just wasn’t totally sold at first. It’s kind of bitter, sort of expensive, and a little hard to get used to. After finding a few recipes I decided to try it out, and just like that, it became my go-to vegetable. I honestly swear by it in every way, shape and form. Whether it be sauteed, in a smoothie, or baked into a chip, kale is a nutritious, and quite frankly delicious way to get some much-needed nutrients into your diet.
