The Weekender

Portland Pizza, $1 Beers and Bollywood

The weekend is ice-proof.

Thursday
New Pizza in Harvard Square
PORTLANDIA

New Pizza in Harvard Square

You were just saying—you could really go for a slice of Pulled Pork and Mango Pizza. Guess, what: the universe has answered. Or actually, Maine has answered. Say hello to Portland, Maine–favorite Otto’s, dishing you bold pizzas like Mashed Potato, Bacon and Scallion. Yes, they also have plain cheese.

Saturday
Burritos and Tequila at Poe’s
BURRIT-OH

Burritos and Tequila at Poe’s

The good news: top chefs from Gargoyles, Taranta and Tremont 647 are gathering at the Rattlesnake for a massive burrito contest where you get to sample the creations. The bad news: it’s sold out. The other good news: we have five spots available. The final good news: there will be tequila.

Monday
Lunching with $1 Beers/Oysters
BUSINESS TIME

Lunching with $1 Beers/Oysters

If Don Draper has taught you anything, it’s that business lunches are best conducted over oysters and booze. Hence B&G Oysters, where they’re sliding you draft beer and oysters for $1 a pop on Mondays and Tuesdays. Go ahead, take your Canadian secretary/fiancée.

Mon-Tue through Apr 26, 11:30am-4:30pm, B&G Oysters, 550 Tremont St, 617-423-0550

Tuesday
Endless Red Velvet Treats
VELVET REVOLUTION

Endless Red Velvet Treats

There’s just something about a cold Tuesday in February that screams “red velvet.” This Tuesday, Flour hosts an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord of red velvet incarnations—everything from red velvet French macaroons to red velvet cake-batter ice cream from SoCo Creamery. Noticeably absent: red velvet whiskey.

Wednesday
Examining Bollywood (with Cocktails)
INDIAN JONES

Examining Bollywood (with Cocktails)

With your private jet snowed in, you’re forced to think of other ways to get your Indian-culture fix this month. Enter Precinct, where they’re screening some of the best Bollywood scenes from the ’50s through the ’80s. No word on the Bombay adaptation of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Feb 9, 8pm, no cost, cash bar, Precinct, 70 Union Square, Somerville, 617-623-9211
