The weekend is dancing on a pole.

Friday

FOOTLOOSE

30% Off All Shoes at Mr. Sid

If it's time for a new pair of shoes, Mr. Sid in Newton has a two-day event this weekend where you can land 30% off all footwear, like boat shoes from Paraboot, dress shoes from Allen Edmonds or just a slick new pair of driving shoes. Your Maserati doesn't drive itself, after all.

May 21-22, 9am-6pm, Mr. Sid, 1211 Centre St, Newton, 617-969-4540

Saturday
Free Sailing and Fenway Franks in Eastie
ON THE SEA

Free Sailing and Fenway Franks in Eastie

Considering we only get four or five months a year to sail, you want to jump on any chance for an afternoon on the sea. Piers Park Sailing Center is kicking off the season on Saturday with free sailing, live music, gratis slices of pizza from A&L Bakery and all the Fenway Franks, sausages and brats you can eat. Leave them until after sailing, though.

30 Pole Dancers. Just for You.
POLE POSITION

30 Pole Dancers. Just for You.

It's been a long week. So Felt is bringing in a bunch of poles for pro pole dancers to square off against students and amateurs for a night. Local pole-dancing instructors will lead it off, followed by performances from beginners to the World Champion Pole Dancer, Pantera Blacksmith from Seattle. You've been meaning to see her in person.

May 22, 7-9pm, $20 door, Felt, 533 Washington St, 617-350-5555

Jack Sparrow's Pub Crawl
ARRRRRR

Jack Sparrow's Pub Crawl

Weekends are for getting together with friends, meeting new friends and sometimes—just sometimes—stomping around downtown for 12 hours with throngs of revelers dressed like pirates. Saturday's eye-patch-laden pub crawl includes a 90-minute booze cruise in Boston Harbor, and Red Sox tickets to the best pirate costume. Watch out for scurvy.

Monday
Dessert and Beer, Together at Last
BEER TOOTH

Dessert and Beer, Together at Last

Nothing goes better with a beer than something salty. But after that, something sweet. Proving this: Finale, which is throwing a lavishly rich tasting on Monday featuring five brews with five desserts. Think Hennepin Belgian beer with crème brûlée, PA's Nugget Nectar with Finale cheesecake and a 9% Canadian beer with chocolate cake. You deserve this.

May 24, 6:30-8pm, $19.99, Finale, 1306 Beacon St, Brookline, RSVP at 617-232-3233
