Gertsen on Leaving Boston; Allston Christmas Deal

FORT POINT — says goodbye to John Gertsen of Drink, who is heading out to San Francisco. He'll stay connected to the Barbara Lynch Gruppo as "Spirits and Hospitality Ambassador" from afar. On his favorite memory from Drink: "Our inaugural Kentucky Derby party is the first thing that comes to mind...It was then that I realized I was doing the thing that I had dreamed about. We had created a place for the community and that was incredibly validating." [BostonChefs]

ALLSTON — Merry Allston Christmas! Students are starting to return, free furniture is starting to show up on the sidewalks, and the moving trucks are beginning to take over the roads. From August 27 to September 2, students with a valid student ID or a moving truck receipt in that date range can grab a 20% discount on their breakfast or lunch at The Breakfast Club, an Allston diner. (Applies to the individual's meal, not the receipt for their whole group. Show ID or receipt before ordering.) [Eaterwire]

HUB-WIDE — Bon Appetit takes a "where are they now?" look at previous entries on their annual list of the best new restaurants around the country. Locally, that list has included Hungry Mother, Menton, and Bondir. [BA]
