WASHINGTON SQUARE — How about a little late-night drinking on a Monday? On January 18 from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., Will Isaza and the Fairsted Kitchen bar team are welcoming guest bartender Gn Chan from cocktail destination Angel's Share in New York City. Chan will be featuring his Bacardi Legacy winning cocktail Venceremos, an "unconventional twist on Piña colada." Also on the docket for the night: daiquiri time outs and disco lights. [FB]

LOWER MILLS — Founded in 2011, Cake Pops Boston — previously a web-based shop with baking done in CommonWealth Kitchen (formerly CropCircle Kitchen) — is getting settled into its own Dorchester storefront, which debuted in November. Located at 2267 Dorchester Ave., Cake Pops specializes in chocolate- or candy-coated balls of cake in a variety of flavors. Custom and seasonal designs are available. [Official Site]
