15TH ANNUAL BOSTON INTERNATIONAL FINE ART SHOW The Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts November 17–20 fineartboston.com

Displaying a wide variety of art from 40 European and American dealers, the Boston International Fine Art Show enters its 15th year of bringing the best in contemporary and vintage art to the Hub. This mainstay, taking place at the Cyclorama at the South End’s Boston Center for the Arts, offers works in every medium, from painting and drawing to prints, sculpture and photography. Novice art lovers need not feel left out—the show even hosts a New Collectors Night on November 18, which features a discussion on the financial aspects of collecting. Newcomers and veteran art aficionados alike can enjoy the grand Gala Preview on November 17, which benefits the Greater Boston Food Bank and gives visitors a first look at the wares for sale, along with fine food and live music. Refer to listing, page 16. —Scott Roberto

A DELIGHTFUL DESCENT DESCENT W Hotel • 100 Stuart St. 617-261-8700 www.whotels.com

When you’re in the mood to do some serious drinking, you’ll now have one more place to do it. The W Hotel is abuzz with anticipation over its newest bar, Descent, due to open in mid-November. Around the corner from the main hotel entrance and a short walk down the steps reveals the speakeasy-style watering hole. A red, black and silver color palette sets the sultry tone along with exposed concrete walls and a red glass-encased DJ booth. We’re most excited about the chalkboard wall at the base of the stairs ready to satisfy our suppressed graffiti-vandal tendencies. Well, that, and the drinks that are poised to flow freely. —Samantha House

If you’ve got sports on the brain, but aren’t sure where to flaunt your Pats jersey, check out these bars that go beyond the basics. Allston’s Sunset Grill and Tap (pictured above, refer to listing, page 50) is a haven for beer geeks, with more than 112 beers on tap and 380 in bottles. If you’re hungry, don’t miss its famed steamed beer burger. In Fenway, Game On! (refer to listing, page 55) has over 90 HD TVs and a killer sound system that makes you feel as though you’re sitting on the sidelines.The batting cages for Red Sox opponents are downstairs so you might get a sneak a peek at players warming up. A trip downtown brings you to The Fours (refer to listing, page 60). Rated by Sports Illustrated as the number one sports bar in America, the pub is known for its extensive sports memorabilia collection. On the second floor of the Marriott in Back Bay, Champions (110 Huntington Ave., 617-279-6996) brings a little class to the normally rowdy scene, without downplaying the importance of the big game. The space showcases Boston’s largest screen (12 x 24 feet), as well as a lineup of plasmas behind the crescent-shaped bar and individual TVs in dining booths so you’ll never miss a sack. —Bailey Marquis

etween nearly constant phone calls and negotiations, Jim Lapides glanced up at a handsome image and mused, “There’s a drama to Italian posters.”The same could be said of this master collector’s gallery on Newbury Street, in which more than a century of art is snatched up daily by an international clientele. “Posters are the intersection of art, advertising, business and history; all my passions are wrapped up in this single concept,” said Lapides who, after earning an Art History degree from Yale and an MBA from Harvard, dedicated himself to dealing worldclass works at The International Poster Gallery. Since “falling in love” at a show of Italian posters, Lapides has developed an unrivaled collection of Art Noveau, Art Deco, Propaganda and Print masterpieces. “Any dealer worth his salt buys what he loves,” remarked Lapides. A luminous Warhol poster glowing from a nearby wall attested to the

Betty Salemme, Chef Concierge at The Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center, gives her take on the must-sees of Boston. Where do you most recommend visitors go? The majority of people are looking for something historical so I always recommend the Freedom Trail. What spot is a must-see in Boston? The JFK Library and Museum (pictured) is not to be missed.

extent of this love, and to the range and quality of his gallery. Refer to listing, page 20.

What’s the most underrated place in Boston? I think the Sports Museum of New England is vastly underrated. It’s located in the TD Garden where the Bruins and Celtics play and has two floors of exciting sports memorabilia that you can’t find anywhere else. If you had just one night in Boston, where would you go? The Seaport Hotel has a great bar called Tamo. I’d start there then go to The Top of The Hub. It has a breathtaking view, fabulous food and jazz music every single night of the week. —Samantha House 193 9;

backin boston by Samantha House arbara Lynch doesn’t like to be called a celebrity. “I’m a chef” she says, “not a personality.” I beg to differ. With a resume that rivals the likes of Mario Batali, it’s almost impossible for her to dodge the spotlight. In an instant I could tell Barbara wasn’t another arrogant chef. Perhaps having to navigate the societal ladder like an 8 year-old at recess has kept her humble. Barbara grew up in the projects of South Boston, one of seven children. She left high school before graduating. “They wanted me to go to summer school my senior year. I thought: there’s no way I’m doing that. So I never went back,” said Barbara. She started working very young and remembers the desire to cook surfacing at age 12. It wasn’t until she was 21 that she finally got her big break as head chef of a cruise line. “For a long time, I felt as though I needed to catch up with everyone else,” recalled Barbara. After, she worked under top chefs including Todd English for several years then branched out on her own with Beacon Hill restaurant standout No. 9 Park. Today, Lynch has five thriving Boston restaurants, a catering company, an interactive demonstration kitchen/cookbook library and a prohibition-style bar.

Chef Barbara Lynch When I asked Barbara if she thought she was living the American dream, she commented: “Of course. The odds were against me, but I love it when people tell me I can’t do something. It makes me want to do it even more.” I, for one, can’t wait to see what she does next.
