The Weekender

Fenway, Whole Hogs and a Massive Pillow Fight

The weekend always front-loads its pillow.

Thursday
Celebrating Fenway Behind Fenway
RED DOCS

Celebrating Fenway Behind Fenway

You know about Pedroia. Beckett. Francona. Tonight it’s time to learn about the support team at Fenway that makes it all possible, from groundskeepers to clubhouse attendants to bat boys, with the new documentary Down the Line. Where you’ll watch it: on Jerry Remy’s 11-foot flat-screens. Tissues may be required.

Mar 31, 6:30pm, no charge, cash bar, Jerry Remy’s, 1265 Boylston St, 617-236-7369

Friday
Eating Pig Cheeks in Cambridge
ANIMAL FARM

Eating Pig Cheeks in Cambridge

You’re an adventurous eater, so Rialto’s new whole-animal dinner series may be up your alley. This week: full hogs, which means pig cheeks and pork dumplings for the tame, actual brains for the truly fearless. Wait till you see what they do with goats.

Fri-Sat through Apr 16, Rialto, 1 Bennett St, Cambridge, 617-234-8025

Saturday
Clubbing with a Side of Tater Tots
DISTRICT DINE

Clubbing with a Side of Tater Tots

Picture it: you’re at the club. The music thumps. The models hang on you. Then, your stomach cries out for tater tots and Grilled Triple Fromage Crostini. Good news: District has just rolled out a late-night menu for this very reason. Remember to wait 15 minutes after eating before breakdancing.

Saturdays till midnight with table reservation, District, 180 Lincoln St, reserve at 617-426-0180

Pillow Fighting in Public
DOWN-Y

Pillow Fighting in Public

As you’re undoubtedly aware, Saturday is World Pillow Fight Day. So after you find out where it’s happening, you and your fellow feather-warriors can go Braveheart-at-Stirling on each other (last year 1,500 participated). Think of it as very soft gangland violence.

Eating Baby Sheep at The Gallows
ON THE LAMB

Eating Baby Sheep at The Gallows

Lamb. The other-other-other white meat. And if you head to The Gallows on Saturday, you can feast on it, prepped by chefs like Will Gilson of Garden at the Cellar. Also happening: expert butchery demonstrations and gratis 70-proof liqueurs as part of the American Lamb party. That should silence them.
