Think Tank Overcomes Odds, Reopens
THE RETURN

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.

Now open, Think Tank, One Kendall Square, Building 300, 617-500-3031

Your New J.Crew Men’s Store
CREW PREP

Your New J.Crew Men’s Store

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.

Now open, Copley Place, 100 Huntington Ave, 10am-8pm, 617-375-1032 

UD HOOKUP: Be one of the first 25 people to mention UrbanDaddy while in the new store and you’ll receive a free J.Crew map tote bag. Which is so going on eBay.

Saturday
Block Party, Fluffernutter Style
PURE FLUFF

Block Party, Fluffernutter Style

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.

Sep 25, 3-7pm, cash booths, Union Square Plaza, Somerville, 617-955-0080

All Day: Beer, Bagpipes and Whiskey
CELTIC FEVER

All Day: Beer, Bagpipes and Whiskey

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
Belly Dancing at The Beehive
TUMMY TUCKING

Belly Dancing at The Beehive

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.

Sep 29, doors at 5pm, The Beehive, 541 Tremont St, 617-423-0069
