TAXIDERMY

Vintage Tees and Spurs at the W

If you head to the W tonight for the Boldfacers cocktail party and pop-up vintage shop, you can land anything from rocker tees to Victorian cuff links to vintage cowboy gear (spurs, cowhide rugs, etc.). There’s even some funky taxidermy pieces, like a stuffed peacock. Perfect for your wildlife-themed living room.

Sep 9, 6-10pm, cash bar, upstairs at the W Hotel, 100 Stuart St, 617-261-8700

Friday
Indian-Style Partying in Union Square
SITAR HERO

Indian-Style Partying in Union Square

Union Square is throwing an outdoor Punjabi culture festival. This is your cue to devour naan bread and other authentic Indian food for free, watch Indian martial arts demos and later hit up the Independent for Indian cocktails and a DJ spinning Indian tunes. Chances of hearing Ravi Shankar: better than average.

Sep 10, 6-9pm; later at The Independent, 75 Union Square, Somerville, 617-440-6022

Sunday
A Birthday Party in Dorchester
TAVOLO 2.0

A Birthday Party in Dorchester

Turning two is the sort of milestone that calls for a party. For a kid, that means G.I. Joe’s. For a killer pizza and pasta restaurant in Dorchester, that means gratis hors d’oeuvres, $2 Bellinis and a $2 bar menu for two hours. Could also include G.I. Joe’s.

Sep 12, 5-7pm, Tavolo, 1918 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester, 617-822-1918

Monday
Endless Pie-Eating for $5
AMERICAN PIE

Endless Pie-Eating for $5

The first annual Fruit Pie Contest is happening in Brookline on Monday, where for $5 you can try all the banana, raspberry, cherry, blueberry, blackberry and apple pies your stomach can handle. You’ve been meaning to get more fruit in your diet.

Wednesday
Texas Hold’em with the Bruins
POKER FACE

Texas Hold’em with the Bruins

You’ve always wanted to play chess with the Celtics. But after that, you’ve always wanted to play poker with the Bruins. This Wednesday is your big break. You’ll pit your bluffing and stoicism skills against players from the B’s like Krejci, Chara and Lucic. Should you trounce Lucic on every hand, watch out for a slap shot to the face.

Sep 15, 6:30-9pm, $250 buy-in, Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles St, 866-507-5245
