Things to do for July 14, 2011
This Weekend: Quiche. Pizza. And 26 Bars in 12 Hours.
The weekend loves the French. Hates mimes.
Your New Southie Food Truck
In the past, when you’ve found yourself in Southie and hungry for porchetta sandwiches, you suffered. Now, you’ll track down the Pennypackers food truck, which will be slinging porchetta, quiche and, starting next week, breakfast sandwiches with housemade Irish sausage. Nothing says Southie like quiche.
Now that this past week has sweated about 15 pounds of water weight off you, know that you can revamp your summer gear by heading to Louis for a massive sale, landing you 50% off all spring and summer items. If you haven’t overhauled your pre–Labor Day whites, now is the time.
Homemade Churros for Lunch
Tuna salads and healthy fruit. They have their place at lunch, but something about the sunshine and warm days has you more in the mood for Camarones Papantla (bacon-wrapped shrimp) and housemade Mexican churros. Enter El Centro’s new lunch menu, now featuring both. Just don’t go too heavy on the churros.
All those long nights on the town this summer have been prepping you for Saturday’s drinking odyssey, where you’ll be traversing through 26 bars over 12.5 hours. You’ll start at the House of Blues and hit every place from Bleacher Bar to Common Ground along the way. Yes, you’ll get a Viking helmet for attending.
Pizza and Sake at a Wine Store
And once you shake your head clear of the beer-y cobwebs, you’ll be looking for a little doughy sustenance. Come Tuesday, the Urban Grape will be pairing four different pies from Naked Pizza with everything from sake to bubbly to gluten-free beer and wine. It’s the ideal day to match sake with pizza, in our opinion.
