Things to do for August 04, 2011

The Weekender

Audrey Hepburn, Guacamole and a Street Fair

The weekend is always ready for its close-up.

Thursday
Friday
Blue Inc. Opens for Lunch
BLUES MAN

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.

Saturday
Turning Somerville into a Thai Market
PERFECT UNION

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.

Monday
French Food + Beer = Heaven?
CRAFTY

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.

Aug 8, 6:30-9:30pm, $75, Aquitaine, 569 Tremont St, reserve at 617-424-8577

Cinema and Cocktails at the Beagle
SCREEN SCENE

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.

Through Oct 3, 10pm, no cost, Regal Beagle, 308 Harvard St, Coolidge Corner, 617-739-5151

Tuesday
A Ferocious Guacamole Throwdown
GUAC-TASTIC

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.
