We thought you needed a change of scenery... so we booked you a room and dinner for two at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Napa Valley. (Hope you don’t mind.) Then we saved you a seat for an epic feast in Manhattan, at Le Cirque’s LES pop-up restaurant. Get packing.
Things to do for August 11, 2011
Late-Night Tacos, Half-Off Polos and Wild Boar
The weekend is happy to host Ochocinco.
Vito’s Tavern Opens for Lunch
Good news: newly minted North End haunt Vito’s Tavern has begun serving lunch, seven days a week. Better news: the entire regular menu is available. So if you’ve been meaning to add more burgers and Korean Style Fried Wings to your midday lineup—meet your means.
50% Off Everything at Uncle Pete’s
Now that you’ve shed 50 pounds with the Insanity Workout, you may need some new threads to show off your svelteness. Try Uncle Pete’s, where everything in the store (polos from Band of Outsiders, button-downs from Comme des Garçons) is 50% off from now until they get new stock in.
Ah, the ICA. The paintings. The sculptures. The dancing. Yep: the ICA is throwing a Latin-inspired dance party featuring Latin American folk rhythms mixed with hip-hop and electronica. Make sure there’s room if you break out your capoeira moves.
Patio BBQing at OM
Ribs. Steak. Jerk chicken. Wild boar sausage. No, this isn’t a list of your breakfast this week. But it is what you can expect at the eight-hour outdoor BBQ that OM is throwing in Harvard Square. Everything is up for grabs à la carte–style, or in your case: “all-of-the-above”-style.
Taco-ing After Midnight
The need for late-night-eats options never goes away. Neither does your love of tacos, empanadas, tableside guacamole and braised short rib taquizas. Starting Monday, you’ll procure such delights from Papagayo’s new late-night menu. Warning: this may lead to more late-night tequila-ing, too.
