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.

A Giant ICA Dance Party

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.

Aug 12, 7:30-11pm, $15, ICA, 100 Northern Ave, 617-478-3100, tickets here

Sunday
Patio BBQing at OM

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.

Aug 14, noon-8pm, cash bar, OM Restaurant, 92 Winthrop St, Cambridge, 617-576-2800

Monday
Taco-ing After Midnight
LATE NIGHT

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.
