The Weekender

Bocce, Catherine Deneuve and Ice Cream Pizza

The weekend has never been a fugitive.

Thursday
Ladies and Gentlemen: Ice Cream Pizza
PIZZA PARTY

Ladies and Gentlemen: Ice Cream Pizza

Most Thursdays: great night for a pizza and a few beers. This Thursday: great night for a brownie crust, vanilla ice cream, fudge and artisanal-chocolate-topped Ice Cream Pizza, available now at all Emack & Bolio’s in the area. Yes, you can still have it with beer.

Friday
The Films of Luis Buñuel
HAH-VAHD

The Films of Luis Buñuel

Nothing against Mr. Popper’s Penguins, but know that this is the last weekend to catch the Luis Buñuel retrospective at the Harvard Film Archive. Our pick: 1967’s Belle de Jour, partially because we love French cinema and partially because we love Catherine Deneuve in a bra. Okay, mostly for Deneuve.

Sunday
$5 Bites and Bocce in Cambridge
HAPPY ANNY

$5 Bites and Bocce in Cambridge

For five years, the patio party at Restaurant Dante has served you well. Serving you even better is this Sunday’s five-year anniversary party. On deck (so to speak): $5 cocktails, an oyster shucker dishing out five oysters for $5, $5 finger foods and outdoor bocce on the grass. High five.

Jun 26, 2-5pm, cash bar, Restaurant Dante, 40 Edwin H Land Blvd, Cambridge, 617-497-4200

Monday
Monday Flicks at the Beagle
CLASSICAL

Monday Flicks at the Beagle

Speaking of classic films, Monday marks the start of the Regal Beagle’s new every-other-Monday reel-time series. It begins with Bela Lugosi’s 1931 Dracula, gratis truffle-spiced popcorn and the Blood Runner: black rum, blood orange puree and ginger beer. Lugosi was huge on ginger beer.

Mondays starting Jun 27, 10:30pm, Regal Beagle, 308 Harvard St, Brookline, 617-739-5151

Tuesday
Taste of Cambridge’s Rain Date
JUST A TASTE

Taste of Cambridge’s Rain Date

If you haven’t heard, the recent monsoon-like weather has moved the Taste of Cambridge to its rain date. Which means you’ll be able to sample the wares of 60 Cambridge restaurants like East Coast Grill, Formaggio Kitchen and Russell House Tavern on Tuesday. So, basically your normal Tuesday.
