SALE-ING

75% Off Everything at Stel’s

If your July was filled with raucous BBQs and the inevitable beer spillage, your threads may have taken the brunt of the abuse. Good news: Stel’s is throwing a three-day warehouse sale, knocking 75% off everything, including jeans from Acne and button-downs from Steven Alan.

Saturday
Lou Reed’s Kind of Yard Sale
ROCK OUT

Lou Reed’s Kind of Yard Sale

If a block party, a rock concert and a garage sale had a free-spirited love child, it would look a lot like the Rock and Roll Yard Sale going down Saturday in Union Square in Somerville.

Sunday
A Food Truck Summit Beckons
TRUCKIN’

A Food Truck Summit Beckons

For one glorious, gluttonous afternoon this Sunday, the South End will be turned into a monster food-truck rally, with 17 snack wagons on hand, from Grillo’s Pickles to Roxy’s Grilled Cheese. Fenway staple The Sausage Guy will even have truck representation, proving that no food summit is complete without a pork ally.

Jack Wills Fashion Show, with Beer
CATWALK

Jack Wills Fashion Show, with Beer

If you’re on the Rock on Sunday, head to the Cisco Brewery, where they’ll have gratis apps, cold beer (it’s a bar) and models showing off the latest Jack Wills beachwear. Yes, this includes bikinis. You love fashion.

Aug 8, 3-4pm, no cost, Cisco Brewery, 3 Bartlett Farm Rd, Nantucket, 508-325-5929

Tuesday
Eating Your Way Through Park Plaza
PARK IT

Eating Your Way Through Park Plaza

If you’ve ever strolled through Park Plaza, looked around at all the restaurants and thought, “I want to eat all of their best dishes right now,” Tuesday is your chance. Feast on everything from Davio’s Philly Cheese Steak Spring Rolls to Smith & Wollensky’s filet, then hit the after-party at Whiskey Park.
