In case you forgot, Sunday is Father's Day. Don't stress. Lots of local food and drink gift possibilites are just a click away. Here are a few picks that will save you and your dad from the steak-of-the-month club.
1) Boccalone's Salumi Society is great Father's Day material. Buy dad a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription for assortments of porcine products delivered on a regular basis, straight to his door. There's also a Father's Day gift certificate option if you'd like to keep it open-ended.
Though we pride ourselves on being a premiere food media outlet here in our fine city, we realize that we must give credit where credit is due: Therefore: the Bold Italic is very cool. This website, which launched in beta on October 16 and is backed by big publisher Gannett, bills itself as an "experiment in local discovery." Armed with the mission of making city dwellers better locals, the Bold Italic has amassed a cadre of "Bold Locals" who search the city for adventures, back stories and interesting, little-known gems, then write about them smartly and with authority.
