Two Apocalypse Specials for Friday: Legal Harborside and Olé Mexican Grill

Stuffed lobster at Legal Harborside 
With all the hubbub around the Mayan calendar apocalypse this Friday, December 21, 2012, one wonders if we’ll need breakfast on December 22.

But for now, here are two ways to have your “meal to end all meals,” as Legal Harborside puts it. It sure is: the Seaport seafooder is serving up a two-and-a-half pound baked lobster stuffed with more lobster, scallops, foie gras, porcini mushrooms and truffle oil garnished with black truffles ($150). To go with, try the specialty cocktail, the Mayan Ruin (love that!). It’s a mix of mescal, St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and ginger beer ($10; 617-477-2900). 

Head to Olé Mexican Grill in Cambridge for a tongue-in-cheek “Doomsday Dinner & Candle Vigil," 5:30-11:11 PM - the exact time the world is supposed to end. Though if the Mayans were wrong, Olé won’t kick you out. The dinner is à la carte with selections that include Montezuma’s Last Meal, an 18-ounce ribeye steak stuffed with caramelized garlic and jalapeños, served with three cheese mashed potatoes and spicy fried onion rings ($32). Guests are asked to being a canned good to represent the restaurant as a bunker and presuming, this is all a hoax, the canned goods will be donated to the Cambridge Economic Opportunity Committee’s Food Pantry. There will be margaritas and more! (617-492-4495)
