On Julia Child's birthday, Aug. 15, the Aquitaine Group is offering guests a free glass of Champagne in her honor. It's also Restaurant Week, which means three courses and bubbly for $33.09 at Aquitaine, Metropolis Cafe, Union Bar and Grille, or Gaslight.

Madonna's birthday is the next night, but the Aquitaine folks aren't doing squat to honor her. You'll have to make Julia's glass count for both.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
