Things to do for November 24, 2010

The Weekender

Craft Beers, Duck Sliders and Edward Scissorhands

The weekend is preemptively unbuttoning its pants.

Wednesday
A Month of 20th Century Fox Films
DRUMROLL

A Month of 20th Century Fox Films

The Brattle kicks off its monthlong retrospective of the films from 20th Century Fox tonight, which means you can catch everything from Edward Scissorhands to Big Trouble in Little China to Alien in full big-screen glory. It’ll be like a theater dedicated to the TBS programming lineup. Without Tyler Perry.

Friday
Swing Dancing in an Old Mill
SWINGERS

Swing Dancing in an Old Mill

It’s a Thanksgiving tradition. Eat yourself into oblivion on Thursday, burn off a few slices of pie by swing-dancing in an old train-whistle mill on Friday. The first hour is gratis lessons to sharpen your Lindy Hop (not that you need them), and the rest of the night is dancing to live music. No, Brian Setzer won’t be there.

Saturday
Skiing Down Rails for Prizes
FREESTYLE

Skiing Down Rails for Prizes

Some have called your preternatural abilities at freestyle skiing and boarding (you do both) the stuff of legend. So you may want to get in on the rail event going down at Sunday River on Saturday, where your kick-ass moves can land you swag like Anon goggles and RED helmets. Don’t forget your cup.

Nov 27, 8:30-10:30am, $10, Sunday River, 15 South Ridge Rd, Newry, ME, 207-824-3000

Tuesday
Belgian Beers. Quail Tacos. Giddyap.
CERVEZAS

Belgian Beers. Quail Tacos. Giddyap.

November was a great month. Sadly, it comes to a close on Tuesday, but if you head to Poe’s Kitchen, you’ll have one last shot at their November-only flight of three craft beers (Rogue Yellow Snow, Delirium Tremens) and three tacos (Truffle Risotto and Quail, Horseradish-Braised Short Rib) for $15. Just like the natives did it.

Next Wednesday
Duck Sliders at the Hotel Marlowe
DUCK CALL

Duck Sliders at the Hotel Marlowe

If you always thought Daffy and Donald looked delicious, next Wednesday is your chance to feast on all manner of duck dishes (Duck Confit Sliders, Duck Tongue, Oaxaca Seared Foie Gras) from eight culinary gods—chefs from Pigalle, Stella and KO Prime. Because turkey is just the beginning, poultrywise.

Dec 1, 5:30-9pm, $40, Bambara, 25 Edwin H Land Blvd, RSVP here or at 617-395-2570
