Fool’s Errand, a popular adult snack bar in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood, is swapping its usual menu of finger sandwiches and croquettes into a sweet affair for Valentine’s evening. From 5 p.m. February 14 until 1 a.m., munch on cinnamon gummy bears, chocolate-covered strawberries, cherry hand pies, heart-shaped churros and sugar cookies, and tarts served with champagne and crème de cassis. There’s also a Rose Cupcake Wall and the Take a Little Pizza My Heart Station—most likely the sweetest pizza bar in New England.
The pizza bar features some scumptious combos: chocolate and strawberry pie topped with chocolate drizzle; apple pie with cinnamon cooked apples and salted caramel sauce; and a blackberry pie with sweet ricotta, blackberry merlot, and basil.
Wash down these treats with wine, craft cocktails, and champagne.

Fool’s Errand is located at 1377 Boylston Street. Although parking is available in nearby lots and garages, taking public transit is the best option. The Commuter Rail, Green D Line, and several buses stop within walking distance. I prefer taking the train, because it’s more convenient and faster than the bus. The D Line stops at the Fenway station, which about three blocks from Fool’s Errand. The closest Commuter Rail stop is the Yawkey station, six blocks north.
Fool’s Errand does not accept reservations. Get more information about the snack bar at foolserrandboston.com.
