Brand-New Perks

Brand-New Perks

This week, Perks is bringing you an exclusive VIP price on your next private boat party—your pirate lineage deserves no less. You'll also get a chance at an hour-long tennis lesson with the legendary John McEnroe, who'll give you tips on everything from charging the net to the proper way to berate a myopic line judge. Yes, we are being serious.

When you turn 10, you get a few clams thrown your way. When Summer Shack turns 10, it also throws clams your way. All of June, you can get 10 clams for $10—or any combination of crab claws, oysters, shrimp and clams (say, three snow crab claws, three jumbo shrimp and four clams) for $10.

Three Parties. Two Patios. Let's Do This.

Three Parties. Two Patios. Let's Do This.

To celebrate the opening of its patios for the season, the InterContinental is throwing a party. Well, three parties, actually. One each at Sushi-Teq, Miel and RumBa. Depending on which room you choose, you'll bask in live music, sultry Brazilian dance performances, DJs and 20 tasting stations involving sushi, absinthe, beer and tequila. In other words, just like last weekend at your place.

Jun 5, 5pm-1:15am, $5 per station, InterContinental, 510 Atlantic Ave, 617-747-1000

A Massive, All-Red Pub Crawl in Southie

A Massive, All-Red Pub Crawl in Southie

Meanwhile, over in Southie, a rowdy crowd adorned in anything red (including body paint) will be crawling through neighborhood bars for more than 14 hours, getting up to no good with beer, three-legged races and other shenanigans. And don't worry if you get separated—they should be an easy herd to spot.

Jun 5, starts at noon at Slainte, 28 W Broadway, 617-268-6697

$3 PBRs and a Tattoo Party

$3 PBRs and a Tattoo Party

McGreevy's is offering you an antidote to a humdrum Sunday with a tattoo-rrific party for Inked Magazine. You'll have a bevy of $3 PBR tallboys at your disposal, and in the spirit of the party, $50 gift certificates to Hourglass Tattoo will be awarded to guests with the coolest tattoos. (Handed out by the Dropkick Murphys' bagpipe player.) Because if you've got the coolest tattoo at the party, you definitely need more tattoos.

Jun 6, 9pm-2am, no cover, McGreevy's, 911 Boylston St, 617-262-0911

30 Restaurants, All for You

30 Restaurants, All for You

Since hitting all of Somerville's great eateries in a single night would take far too much coordinating, the majestic Taste of Somerville comes to the Holiday Inn on Tuesday, with live bands supplying the soundtrack as you feast on goods from over 30 restaurants, including Gargoyles on the Square, Sagra and Pulse Café. If you're aiming to sample every restaurant once, you may want to book a room.
