This week, Perks is bringing you 40% off shirts from Freemans. They feature a tab under the sleeve that can be fastened to a button placed strategically above the elbow—a little shirting know-how borrowed from Depression-era machinists—so feel free to roll up the sleeves. Because that magnum of champagne isn’t going to saber itself.
Things to do for September 30, 2010
Chili, Auditions and Oktoberfest
The weekend is wearing lederhosen right now.
Good Life is kicking their Keys Open Doors party series back into high gear tonight. Once you land a key (tip: try Uncle Pete’s in Beacon Hill), you’ll enter through the 106.5 Bedford St entrance, be handed a gratis Red Stripe and bask in a full lineup of DJs. No, your house key won’t work.
Drinking Free Sake for World Sake Day
For three hours on Saturday, the Urban Grape would like to school you on all things rice wine. You’ll learn about the different sakes, find out which foods to pair them with (other than sushi) and, most importantly, sample 12 different kinds. We believe the term is “pre-party.”
Saturday is also your chance to head to Newburyport to sample the best, hottest chili from 20 local restaurants. You’ll devour all you can handle, vote for the finest and chase down all the chili goodness with fresh apple cider and cider doughnuts. Good to have you back, autumn.
Somerville turns into a mini Munich on Sunday, with Davis Square morphing into a full-fledged, outdoor, polka-band-y biergarten. There’ll be bratwurst, beer and other German necessities of life (Kraftwerk?) supplied by several local haunts. As always, lederhosen is encouraged.
The Next National Anthem Singer: You
All the great ones have given this their best shot: Roseanne, Carl Lewis, Frank Drebin. Now it’s your turn. Auditions will be held on Monday for anyone with the grapes to step up and belt out “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Wow them, and you may end up singing at a Celtics game this season. Remember: from the gut, not the throat.
