SOUTHIE - On 1/17 the Local 149 will start offering Mixology 101, a class in cocktail making and history. $40 per person, includes bar bites. Call for reservations: (617) 269-0900. [Official Site]

SOUTH END/BROOKLINE - It's that time of year again: Orinoco has hallacas! The tamale-like Venezuelan Christmas dish combines pork, chicken, vegetables, capers, olives, raisins, and spices, which are wrapped in a corn flour mixture and steamed in plantain leaves. [Facebook]

BACK BAY - Before Clio temporarily closes for renovations, the restaurant will feature a menu of its classic dishes from over the years. So in case you missed it the first time, now's your chance to try the cassolette of sea urchin and lobster with parsnip milk. [Official Site]
