The Weekender

Disco, Japanese Drummers and Endless Sandwiches

The weekend is just getting warmed up.

Thursday
A Pizza Joint with Crazy Slices
NICE SLICE

A Pizza Joint with Crazy Slices

One way to sell pizza: offer pepperoni, sausage, maybe a mushroom. Another way: something like the new Garden of Eat-In Pizzeria in Cambridge, which features slices with turkey, cranberries and gravy, or mashed potatoes and sour cream. Yes, they have plain cheese, too.

Open now, Garden of Eat-In Pizzeria, 2378 Mass Ave, Cambridge, 617-945-5590, see the menu

Friday
All-You-Can-Eat Sandwiches. And Booze
SAMMIES

All-You-Can-Eat Sandwiches. And Booze

Sandwiches. You love them. And if you head to Bleacher Bar on Friday, you can sample all-you-can-eat bites of 10 different kinds and then vote on your favorite from 10 amateur sandwich impresarios. It’s all part of the bar’s epic Sandwich Showdown. No need to bring your own mustard.

Mar 11, 7-10pm, $15 door, Bleacher Bar, 82A Lansdowne St, 617-262-2424

Saturday
The Return of Studio 54 (Kind Of)
IN THE STUDIO

The Return of Studio 54 (Kind Of)

You have fond memories of partying at Studio 54 in a Travolta-esque jumpsuit. Okay, maybe not. But the House of Blues is celebrating the anniversary of the club in its Foundation Room on Saturday. Think: all-disco music, bell-bottoms and platform shoes. Good thing you’ve got a closetful of platform shoes.

Sunday
Japanese Drum Soloing. With Big Sticks
DRUMLINE

Japanese Drum Soloing. With Big Sticks

There’s something about watching Japanese guys holding wooden logs and banging the bejesus out of drums in unison that warms the musical heart. On Saturday, you can catch just such a spectacle as the Japanese Kodo drummers percussion it up at Symphony Hall. The urge for sake may quickly follow.

Monday
Celebrating Math with Pie
PI TIME

Celebrating Math with Pie

Finally, finally, National Pi Day is this Monday. To commemorate this holiest of holy geek days, the Beacon Hill Bistro will be offering up a cup of joe and slice of pie for a mere $3.14 on Monday morning. It’s easily one of the best mathematical-constant deals in the city.
