Things to do for September 23, 2010
Bagpipes, J.Crew and Fluffernutter
The weekend is growing it out.
Think Tank Overcomes Odds, Reopens
Back in June when Think Tank opened in Kendall Square, all seemed well in the world. Then came the flood, and it closed. But fear not. Think Tank has overcome the odds and reopens today with a full heart. They’ll also be open Sundays one hour before Pats games. Also with a full heart.
Bespoke suits. Skinny ties. Plaid shirts. It’s all here in what is J.Crew’s first standalone menswear store outside the NY area. (Suck it, Philly.) In addition to all the checked shirts, there’s tailoring and shoe repair, same-day courier service and personal shoppers.
Union Square celebrates the gooey, marshmallowy miracle that is Fluff—born here in 1917—with an outdoor, no-holds-barred Fluff-down. What this means for you: cooking demos, whoopie pies and sippable Fluffachinos, plus a burlesque show by the Flufferettes.
Everyone loves bagpipes. So you’ll want to head to Hartford on Saturday for an all-day festival of Damon Wayans-less Celtic pride, crammed with Mc-tivities like whiskey tastings, fire shows, bagpipe bands and Highlander games (think: strongman feats). And of course, the inevitable drunken brawl.
Wednesday is your chance to bask in the sexy belly dancing of acclaimed stomach artist Phaedra Rose while you digest live Middle Eastern music, cocktails and “Moroccan cigars” (ground seasoned lamb in phyllo dough). Think of it as the South End by way of Azerbaijan.
