Things to do for February 24, 2011

The Weekender

Broomball, Rock Paper Scissors and Cookies

The weekend would like to thank itself.

Thursday
Your New Thursday: Tiki Everything
TIKI TIME

Your New Thursday: Tiki Everything

Thursdays just feel like they’re designed for spending ample time with tiki cocktails. Tonight, you can head to Stoddard’s new Tiki Thursday series, for a tidal wave of authentic tiki drinks and appetizers (think: soy pork skewers, ceviche). Yes, the drinks come in those funky tiki mugs.

Playing Rock Paper Scissors. With Booze.
ROCK SOLID

Playing Rock Paper Scissors. With Booze.

It’s settled countless arguments. Decided who picks up a bar tab. Even helped avoid a marriage or two. And tonight, it’ll determine who walks away with a hundred bucks, in what we’re calling the city’s biggest rock paper scissors competition. Remember: paper covers rock every time.

Sunday
Eating Cookies by the Handful
COOKIE MONSTER

Eating Cookies by the Handful

For 10 bucks this Sunday, you can go all-you-can-sample on a sweeping cookie spread courtesy of over 20 amateur cookie czars. (Last year’s blockbuster entries: blue cheese cookies, bacon cookies.) No, you don’t need to bring your own milk.

Sunday’s Broomball Throwdown
BROOM TOWN

Sunday’s Broomball Throwdown

If only there were a game that you and five buddies could play that’s a combination of floor hockey and ice hockey. Wait, there is. It’s called broomball. You’ll throw on some pads, grab a stick (which they provide) and do your best Milan Lucic impression. (That’s a Bruins player.)
