Ring in the New Year with an Italian Masquerade at Terra at Eataly Boston

When it comes to throwing a party, Terra knows how it’s done…by adding fun cocktails, smoky bites, and a festive Italian twist to the mix! On December 31, don your finest mask (or we will provide you with one, too!) and ascend to our greenhouse oasis for a grand Italian masquerade. As soon as you enter the party, you’ll be greeted by complimentary bubbly to kick off the evening. Our live band, The Silver Arrow Band, will play sweet tunes as party-goers dance the night away under the sparkling stars—all while balancing enticing cocktails in hand. And the perfect accompaniment to those hand-crafted drinks? Rustic bites from Terra, one of Boston’s ‘Top 50 Restaurants of 2018!’ Terra’s award-winning Executive Chef Dan Bazzinotti has designed a very special menu of passed appetizers for guests to indulge in throughout the night.

As the clock approaches the new year, celebrate the new year Italian-style with a midnight toast of Ferrari Brut!

Ticket includes:

  • Glass of welcome wine
  • Midnight toast of Ferrari Brut
  • Passed Terra appetizers throughout the evening
  • Live music by The Silver Arrow Band

Opening Reception: French Eyes on Boston at the French Cultural Center
Jan 11 @ 5:14 pm – 6:14 pm

The Center is proud to host the show French Eyes on Boston, a collection of portraits and landscapes painted by Marguerite Wibaux, who moved to Boston from France in 2017.



Marguerite’s landscapes marry the Renaissance perspective tradition with an American expressionist approach. The paintings engage with the artist’s perceptions of various points of view in Boston. From a pictorial standpoint, the landscape series explores various mediums and techniques, mixing oil and spray paint with acrylic and collage.

But what is a city without its people? The second component of Marguerite’s work explores Boston’s youth through portraiture.

These paintings aim to pay tribute to a rich diversity of styles, personalities, genres, origins, and cultures in a visually thriving and energizing series.

The gallery opening will include a presentation of Marguerite’s work and a reception with light refreshments. Registration required.
