Things to do for May 12, 2011
Denim Deals, Crispy Duck Legs and Raging Rapids
The weekend is impressively tan for May.
App-ing It Up for $5 at Stella
Your new reason to sneak out of work an hour early: Stella is now opening its doors at 4pm to offer their apps like Crispy Duck Legs, Spicy Mussels and Parmesan Arancini, all for just $5. Although if you work nearby, you may want to avoid dining on the patio.
Sample Sale-ing with Jack Wills
If there’s one thing that could entice you to spend time in a women’s club at Harvard, besides the women, it’s a sample sale of Jack Wills overstock. On Friday, you can land 50% off everything from duvet covers and denim to button-downs and blazers at Harvard’s Bee Club. Pillage at will.
Conquering a Class V River. And Beer.
Your Saturday options: stay in town, or spend the day tackling 15 miles of Class V raging waters in Maine. If you choose the latter, you’ll shoot the rapids, then head to a resort for a steak dinner, followed by a tour/sampling at Kennebec River Brewery. Your move, boredom.
An Evening with Culinary Gods
At this dinner in tribute to Jack Sidell—basically the Harvey Weinstein of the Boston restaurant renaissance—you’ll taste the wares of 20 chefs from places like Olives, Summer Shack and Stephanie’s on Newbury, then wash them down with beer and bubbly. Go ahead, go hard on the bubbly.
Twenty bucks at the bars on a Tuesday: a couple of beers. Twenty bucks at Finale this Tuesday: desserts like crème brûlée and Chocolate Symphony, paired with craft beers like the German heavyweight Schneider Aventinus Eisbock and Brit brew Well’s Banana Bread. You love banana bread beer.
