Scientists have shown that rough nights lead to rougher mornings-after. Fortunately, the scientists at Nickel have invented Morning After Rescue Gel—a hangover-curing face cream infused with caffeine, citrus and soy protein to smooth any lingering roughness. Now, our scientists at Perks are bringing it to you for 40% off. Let’s hear it for science.
Things to do for October 14, 2010
Floor Seats, Roger Sterling and a One-Night Casino
The weekend doesn’t carve pumpkins. They carve themselves.
If your collection of original Dennis Hopper paintings could use some local flavor next to it, tomorrow is the opening night of Open Studios weekend in Fort Point, where over 150 local artists will open their doors and let you browse and buy anything you like. Call it an “art crawl.”
Four Hours of Vino in Brookline
Wine impresarios Vinodivino are throwing an afternoon party on Saturday at their new store in Brookline. You’ll sample loads of regional varietals, wash down the gratis small bites with a little bubbly and leave well-primed for the night. It’ll be like breakfast all over again.
Noir’s Mad Men viewing parties come to an end Sunday, and besides bestowing “best dressed” honors to those who shimmer in their skinny ties, they’ll be giving away two-person brunches to Henrietta’s Table if you accurately predict character outcomes for the episode. Note: you’ll have to be more specific than “Don hooks up.”
Mandarin Goes Casino Royale
Vegas. It’s just so... far. Not so on Monday, when the ballroom at the Mandarin will be a full-scale blackjack, poker, roulette and craps casino, with prizes like C’s tickets and $500 gift cards to Hugo Boss, plus live bands and gratis apps from M Bar. And yes, there will be showgirls.
Scoring Seats to the C’s Opener
Speaking of tickets to the Celtics, if you head to Game On’s trivia night this Wednesday with some buddies, you can not only wow the crowd with your Jeopardy-esque knowledgestorm, but the winning team lands six seats to the C’s opener against the Miami Heat. Which we hear has a revamped team this year.
