In a look ahead at a week of Cambridge and Somerville events, there are holiday shopping markets with art, food, ice skating and workshops; music of the jazz and “chocolate rock” varieties; American Repertory Theater Day of Giving events; and a menorah lighting in Harvard Yard.
Public meetings this week look at bike lanes on Massachusetts Avenue; licensing for New Republik, a Barcelona Wine Bar and 286Broadway, a Housing Affordability petition, after-school program busing, an unarmed public safety program, Margaret Fuller House improvements and more.
Trina’s menu is pretty much straight-up comfort food that pays smart attention to its vegetarian clientele. The menu rotates some, but most always you’ll find mac ’n’ cheese, fried chicken, and fried chicken and waffles, as well as a stack of burgers and a side-dish list that outpaces the entrées.
With a quaint storefront nestled along Hampshire Street between Inman and Kendall squares, Gypsy Place has that old-school bohemian vibe that used to be the currency of many Cambridge eateries – as well as a fluffy omelet made in a waffle iron and dressed with a mayo ketchup togarashi sauce.
