Things to do for May 26, 2011

The Weekender

$1 Oysters, Peanut Butter Pie and Cartoonists

The weekend already has a tan line.

Thursday
New Coffee and Pie in the South End
JAH-RULE

New Coffee and Pie in the South End

Your days require caffeine, and maybe the occasional slice of peanut butter pie. Enter the South End’s newest outlet for that: Jaho Coffee & Tea, now serving triple-espresso cappuccinos, breakfast sandwiches and lunch grub. And, yes, peanut butter pie could be considered lunch.

Saturday
Glassblowing. With Meat.
BLOWOUT

Glassblowing. With Meat.

You’ve always said: if there’s one thing that goes with unlimited Italian wine, cheese and thinly sliced prosciutto, it’s watching guys blow glass. Good news: that’s happening this Saturday for three hours at Diablo Glass School. Let’s hope the instructor takes it easy on the vino.

Sunday
Drinking with Legendary Cartoonists
FUNNY PEOPLE

Drinking with Legendary Cartoonists

At the top of your bucket list: having a beer with the artistic minds behind Beetle Bailey, Family Circus and Cathy. You’ll do just that at the Boston Center for Adult Education on Sunday, plus view their work at this last stop of the Funny Pages exhibit. Try not to spill anything on Cathy’s sweater.

May 29, 2-4pm, no cost, BCAE, 122 Arlington St, RSVP required at 617-267-4430

Oysters and Beer for a Buck
SHELL SHOCKED

Oysters and Beer for a Buck

Sundays can feel a bit dull. Un-dulling them is Myers+Chang, where they’re sliding you PBR tallboys and oysters for $1 each. Sure, they limit you to 12 oysters per person, but think of how much money you’ll have left over for tallboys. And next-day aspirin.

Sundays, 8-10pm, Myers+Chang, 1145 Washington St, 617-542-5200

Memorial Day Clubbing in Quincy
IN DA CLUB

Memorial Day Clubbing in Quincy

Then again, sometimes your Sundays feel less oyster and comic strip-y and more raging music, flowing drinks and scantily clad pretty people-y. Ocean Club is kicking off their season with a Grammy-winning DJ and a massive bash. Start loosening up those fist-pumping muscles now.
