Things to do for June 30, 2011

The Weekender

Late-Night Tacos, Endless Chowder and MFA Partying

The weekend was born in the USA.

Thursday
Late-Night Eats at Tico
TAC-OH

Late-Night Eats at Tico

Besides stockpiling illegal fireworks from New Hampshire, celebrating the Fourth is all about indulging yourself culinarily, like with late-night Crispy Fish Tacos and Pulled Pork Sliders. And since you’ve already hit the 603 for the former, you’ll hit Tico after 10pm for the latter. Hooray, America.

Now available every night after 10pm, Tico, 222 Berkeley St, 617-351-0400, see the menu

Friday
Lunching Next to Revere’s House
MIDDAY

Lunching Next to Revere’s House

Speaking of your unwavering patriotism, you’ll be glad to know Paul Revere’s house’s neighbor, Carmen, has begun offering lunch service Wednesday through Saturday. Which means your midday-sustenance options now include Grilled Pork Loin and shaved prosciutto sandwiches. Just like the Founding Fathers ate them.

Your New Jazz Bar: The MFA
HIGH ART

Your New Jazz Bar: The MFA

You love the MFA for the same reasons you love your apartment: timeless paintings. Masterworks of sculpture. Clean bathrooms. Introducing a new reason to love it: starting tomorrow, there’ll be live music and an outdoor bar in the Calderwood Courtyard every Friday. Chances of Megadeth cover bands: slim.

Fridays in July and August, 5:30-9:45pm, cash bar, MFA, 465 Huntington Ave, 617-267-9300

Saturday
Grindhouse-ing in Somerville
THE HORROR

Grindhouse-ing in Somerville

If Hobo with a Shotgun rekindled your love of grindhouse films, look to the Somerville Theatre on Saturday. (If it didn’t, look there anyway.) They’ll be screening the soon-to-be-classic feature The Disco Exorcist, along with three splatter-fest shorts. Go ahead, invite your friend Tarantino.

Sunday
Endless Chowder at City Hall
CHOW-DAH

Endless Chowder at City Hall

There are two ways to spend Fourth of July Eve: with seven hours of endless New England clam chowder from purveyors like Jerry Remy’s, Ipswich Clambake Co. and Clancy’s of Dennisport, or just fantasizing about it. The better option goes down Sunday at City Hall Plaza. BYO wooden spoon.

Jul 3, 11am-6pm, $12 at entrance, Chowderfest at City Hall Plaza
