Things to do for August 04, 2011
Audrey Hepburn, Guacamole and a Street Fair
The weekend is always ready for its close-up.
Blue Inc. Opens for Lunch
Lunch. Some days it calls for a salad at your desk. Other days it calls for a burrito. But on rare occasions, it calls for a Fried Mahi Sandwich washed down with a Butterscotch and Black Truffle liquid nitrogen milkshake. For those times, Blue Inc. is now open for lunch. Sorry, burrito.
Turning Somerville into a Thai Market
You’ve caught the scene in movies like The Hangover Part II: a crowded, carnival-ish street market with merchants from various parts of the globe. For three hours on Saturday, it’ll be in Union Square, complete with fire spinners and body painters. Fortunately, it was Abs Week at the gym.
French Food + Beer = Heaven?
Your grill starts to get a little tired this time of year, so you can let it relax while you hit the five-course-and-five-beer dinner at Aquitaine on Monday. You’ll pair such French-ish dishes as Cherry BBQ Brisket with Cisco Brewer’s Cherry Woods beer. BYO beret.
Cinema and Cocktails at the Beagle
Every other Monday through October, the Regal Beagle will be dishing out gratis truffle-spiced popcorn while screening a classic movie from a particular decade. It all starts this Monday with Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Feel free to bury your head in popcorn during the Mickey Rooney scenes.
A Ferocious Guacamole Throwdown
The bad news: Tuesday’s raucous guacamole fiesta, where you can sample the wares of local avocado masters (from Lolita, Zocalo, etc.) as they compete for Best in Show, is sold out. The good news: we have 10 tickets to the first responders. We’re here for you.
