Air Guitar, Ribs and Tiki Drinks

The weekend can’t lose.

Thursday
30% Off the Season’s Latest Swimwear
PERK ALERT

30% Off the Season’s Latest Swimwear

Summer’s here and you wouldn’t mind a little recreational dipping. Perks gets that, and we’ve got you covered... from waist to knee. With Onia’s classic line of swimsuits and board shorts—they’re trim, handsome and, for you, 30% off. Any more would be skinny dipping.

Pretty Things and Picnic-y Bites
HEY DARLIN’

Pretty Things and Picnic-y Bites

Last night’s win: epic. Also epic: Eastern Standard’s two hours of $5 small bites tonight (think grilled corn on the cob, BBQ pork sliders) while they launch Pretty Things’ American Darling brew. It’ll be on tap and in samples and they’ll be the only spot carrying it till next week.

Friday
Watching People Play Air Guitar
HOT LICKS

Watching People Play Air Guitar

In your bedroom, you’ve done it to Journey, Zeppelin, even NKOTBSB. So with the Air Guitar Regional Competition happening in Brighton on Friday, you’ll take those air guitar skills public. Winners go to Nationals and Nationals winners go to the finals in Finland. Naturally.

Classic Flicks Out on the Harbor
FULL MOON

Classic Flicks Out on the Harbor

The only thing you love more than Boston Harbor: Otto Preminger pictures. So you may want to get down to the Harbor tomorrow at sunset for Movies by Moonlight, an outdoor film series launching with the 1944 Preminger-directed classic, Laura. Then next Friday: Field of Dreams.

Monday
Decompressing with Tiki Drinks
TIKI HARBOR

Decompressing with Tiki Drinks

Think Tank’s new Tiki Mondays are getting set to bring you pupu platters and everything from Suffering Bastards (rum, orange curaçao, lime juice) to Queen’s Park Swizzles (rum, lime, cinnamon). It’s one of the best ways we can think of to de-Monday yourself.

Mondays, 5pm-midnight, cash bar, Think Tank, 1A Kendall Sq, Cambridge, 617-500-3031

Bourbon and BBQ at Tremont647
HOG WILD

Bourbon and BBQ at Tremont647

Then again, come Monday you may be feeling like ribs. In that case, head to Tremont647, where Jack Daniel’s BBQ Championship winner Andy Husbands will be serving up a four-course BBQ feast (including three kinds of ribs), all paired with bourbons. After last night, you deserve this.

Jun 20, 6-9pm, $36.50, Tremont647, 647 Tremont St, 617-266-4600
