HONORING A LEGACY

A milestone in recognizing the impact of iconic Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. takes place on January 20, the day set aside in his honor, when the 50th annual MLK Memorial Breakfast (refer to listing, page 18) once again takes place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, highlighted by a keynote address by The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry. That’s not the only way the city celebrates its one-time resident that day, however.

PANORAMA

GETTING CATTY

Witness all kinds of catty behavior at two musicals coming this month to the Citizens Bank Opera House. First, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s beloved 1981 classic Cats (refer to listing, page 19, pictured) takes the stage January 7–19 as the touring version of the 2016 Broadway revival lands in the Hub. Next is the local premiere of Mean Girls (refer to listing, page 19), the musical adaptation of the 2004 Tina Feypenned film that hilariously skewers teenage cliques through the experiences of new student Cady, who was raised on the African savannah. Beginning January 28, feline fireworks erupt as Cady tries to navigate the new wilds of a suburban high school while falling in with a group of popular girls.

A VINTAGE CELEBRATION

After celebrating its 30th anniversary last year, what does the Boston Wine Festival (refer to listing, page 18) at the Boston Harbor Hotel do for an encore? Besides its usual array of seminars, dinners, brunches and guest appearances by winemakers from across the globe, the country’s oldest wine and food extravaganza has added the Indulge Presidential Wine Experience, a special overnight package that includes a private wine reception in the John Adams Presidential Suite. It all starts with a grand opening party on January 10 and lasts until March 27, with January highlights including the ever-popular Battle of the Cabernets (January 16 & 17) and a Châteauneuf du Pape dinner (January 31) crafted by festival mastermind, executive chef Daniel Bruce (pictured) of the hotel’s acclaimed Meritage Restaurant (refer to listing, page 55), along the way. —Scott Roberto TOP PHOTO: TOBI MAKINDE

Fondée en 1630, Boston est l’une des plus anciennes villes des États-Unis et a été la scène de nombreux événements clés pendant la Révolution américaine, la Boston Tea Party, la Chevauchée de Paul Revere et la bataille de Bunker Hill.
