It’s as simple as this: it’s summer, and you need something to wear... So we’re hooking you up with Orlebar Brown’s expertly tailored, swim-friendly shorts and alfresco-ready polos. Plus, we’ve come up with the greatest Father’s Day gift of all time: monogrammed cufflinks (that happen to be fully functional lighters).
Things to do for May 26, 2011
$1 Oysters, Peanut Butter Pie and Cartoonists
The weekend already has a tan line.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
