The Weekender

Pork Belly, Grilled Cheese and Honoring Australia

The weekend is far more cunning than you’d ever expect.

Thursday
The Back Bay Gets Grilled Cheese’d
SAY CHEESE

The Back Bay Gets Grilled Cheese’d

Like sex and reruns of Cheers, grilled cheese is good anytime you can get it. And should you be on lunch in the Back Bay with your stomach roaring for that gooey goodness, rejoice. Grilled cheese purveyors Cheeseboy are now open at the Pru. As always, go extra bacon.

Your New Meaty Happy Hour

And while you’re at the Pru, you can then head to 5 Napkin Burger for their new daily deal, where two dollars will get you one of their original or veggie burger sliders, a tray of four pork taquitos or even a handmade spicy tuna roll. In other words, bring at least six bucks.

Available now daily, 4-7pm, 5 Napkin Burger, at the Prudential Center, 105 Huntington Ave, 617-375-2277

Friday
Live Ska and Cheap PBRs Behind Fenway
DICE-Y

Live Ska and Cheap PBRs Behind Fenway

If your idea of a good time is a full-tilt party engulfing three floors of a bar, cheap PBRs, DJs and raucous live local ska bands after work on a Friday—you’re not alone. Motorcycle culture overlords Dice Magazine are throwing just that at the Baseball Tavern tomorrow.

Saturday
A Downtown Party Honoring Australia
G’DAY

A Downtown Party Honoring Australia

Boag’s. Tooheys. Coopers. No, they’re not characters from the forthcoming Hobbit film, but rather Aussie beers being served at Battery Park on Saturday as part of Australia Day celebrations. There will also be meat pies and live Aussie music, so bring your didgeridoo.

Jul 30, 2pm-2am, $10 cover, Battery Park, 33 Batterymarch St, 617-350-7275

Monday
Starting the Week with BBQ Pig
HOG WILD

Starting the Week with BBQ Pig

Only two things get you excited for Monday: having Monday off, or finishing off the day with three hours of devouring freshly smoked BBQ pulled pork, loin, belly, slaw, greens, corn on the cob and beer, all for $25. The latter is happening at Redbones on Monday. You’re welcome, office.

Aug 1, 6-9pm, $25, Redbones, 55 Chester St, Somerville, 617-628-2200
