Kopke’s tawny port ($13), with a nuttier flavor, went perfectly with CB Stuffer’s traditional peanut butter cup. The port-chocolate double-date was a match made in our mouths.
Beakers & Cream homemade ice cream sandwiches, ($5) made in Somerville, almost started a food fight. Our mistake? Sharing, tapas-style, the Blueberry Buckle, the homemade blueberry ice cream (made with vodka-soaked blueberries) sandwiched between homemade sugar cookies, good enough to eat by themselves.
Meal over, mission accomplished.
Entertaining — and shopping — has never been so easy. We’ll do this again.
