The Paramount is screening international selections from the 2010 Toronto Film Festival tomorrow—everything from early-cinema mashups to festival-winning shorts. Think of it as Sundance boiled down to one night. Possibly with a few more hockey references.
Things to do for November 18, 2010
Soul Food, Sliders and Zip-Lining in a Quarry
When the weekend breaks, it doesn’t break even.
Your dream of careening at high speeds over a giant rock quarry is about to come true. The Boston Ski and Sports Club will be conquering Quincy on Saturday; join up, and you’ll rappel down rock walls and zip-line from devastatingly great heights. Basically, everything Connery did in Medicine Man.
Dante’s Epic Soup Battle
Fourteen of the most respected chefs in town will be gathering on Dante’s Peak (okay, his patio) this Sunday to crown a soup king. Soup sorcerers from the likes of Gargoyles, Rocca, Pigalle and Via Matta will bring their best broths and sexiest stews, with you judging the supreme winner. Just keep the line moving...
Sliders and Tartare for $5
Sundays are all about football, chips and dip, but if you head to 28 Degrees on Sunday for their five for $5 deal, it’ll also be all about refined bar bites like Kimchee Spring Rolls, Mini Beef Sliders and Tuna Tartare. No, breaking your routine won’t cause the Pats to lose. We think.
Devouring Ribs and Fried Chicken
Hump day tends to require a little chicken soup for the soul. For the meek, that means chicken soup, but for you that means Fried Catfish, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, BBQ Ribs, cornbread, collard greens and other soul-food staples. Go ahead, invite James Brown.
