The Weekender

Spicy Wings, Boozy Santas and Celtics Tickets

The weekend is going scarf.

Thursday
Ties with a Secret
PERK ALERT

Ties with a Secret

The eggnog: spiked. The mistletoe: securely hung. The gifts: well... you’re almost there. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with an exclusive selection of winter-ready FIGS ties. Which leaves you with more time for quality-testing that eggnog.

Watching the B’s and the C’s at JR’s
THE REMY-DY

Watching the B’s and the C’s at JR’s

Bruins tickets. Celtics tickets. Signed Sox memorabilia. Miscellaneous swag. It’s all being given away tonight at Jerry Remy’s. And if you’re asking yourself, “Will there be live cornhole games set up?” the answer is a very happy “yes.”

Dec 16, 5:30pm-2am, cash bar, Jerry Remy’s, 1265 Boylston St, 617-236-7369

A Jack Wills Shopping Night
MAN UP

A Jack Wills Shopping Night

Holiday shopping: it’s a pain. Here to make it a little less so: Jack Wills, which for one night is transforming its store into a man-cave. Think: sports up on the TVs, gratis English beer and an all-female staff. They’ll even wrap your purchases. In the unlikely event they’re for other people.

Dec 16, 6-9pm, Jack Wills, 179 Newbury St, 857-753-4524

Friday
New Wings from an Old Friend
WING MAN

New Wings from an Old Friend

When Privus closed, Allstonians were robbed of a great Korean wing joint. But good news, Allston: the Privus owners bring you a Bon Chon shop, which means all your spicy and soy garlic fried chicken combos are back. Yes, they still have a sushi bar.

Now open, 11:45am-midnight, Bon Chon, 123 Brighton Ave, Allston, 617-254-8888

Saturday
Boozing with Hundreds of Santas
KRIS DRINK-LE

Boozing with Hundreds of Santas

A good bar crawl: pounding your way through Central Square, Harvard Square and Davis Square in a multi-bar, multi-neighborhood, flask-toting booze extravaganza. A great bar crawl: the same thing, with hundreds of revelers dressed in Santa outfits. It’s impossible not to be jolly in this situation.

Dec 18, 12:30pm-2am, starts at The Asgard, 350 Mass Ave, Cambridge, 617-577-9100

Sunday
The Nutcracker. Plus Saucy Burlesque.
GO NUTS

The Nutcracker. Plus Saucy Burlesque.

Boston is a city of tradition this time of year. No, we’re not talking caroling through the North End. We’re talking about the semi-raunchy burlesque version of The Nutcracker that is performed every year under the uber-classy Slutcracker moniker. You love the ballet.
