Things to do for August 18, 2011

The Weekender

Bikinis, Pop-Ups and a Mexican Fiesta

The weekend rarely meets a bikini it doesn’t like.

A Massive Waterfront Wine Party

A Massive Waterfront Wine Party

Maximizing Newport time is crucial this time of year. So is drinking copious amounts of wine from producers from all over the world, while feasting on food from over 17 chefs (OM, Rocca, MET Bar). Thus, we give you the Newport Wine Fest. Feel free to arrive via dinghy.

Aug 19-21, $350 for all-events pass, Newport Yachting Center, 4 Commercial Wharf, Newport, RI, tickets here

Models. Bikinis. You.

Models. Bikinis. You.

Then again, you may be in less of a “three-day wine blowout on the ocean” mood and more of a “show me hot models in bikinis at a nightclub” kind of mood. Oh hey, look at that: Cure is throwing a bikini fashion show tomorrow night. No, you don’t have to arrive in a Speedo. But you could.

Aug 19, 10:30pm-2am, $15, Cure Lounge, 246 Tremont St, 617-695-2250

Area Four Lands in P-town

Area Four Lands in P-town

Good: Area Four doing a one-day pop-up bakery at the Rogues Gallery store in P-town. Better: Quit Mad Stop launching a new line of waxed canvas swim trunks there the same day. Best: a scone and a coffee before catching the breaks in your new gear.

Aug 20, 10:30am, Rogues Gallery, 208 Commercial St, Provincetown, Cape Cod, 508-413-9477

A Kenmore Square Pig Roast

A Kenmore Square Pig Roast

Sunday. A day of rest. And by rest, we of course mean sitting on a swanky patio while feasting on a whole roast pig, along with all the requisite sides (corn on the cob, potato salad) and beers from the Maine Beer Company. You may now begin drooling.

Toasting the Summer. With Sangria.

Toasting the Summer. With Sangria.

Tuesdays. Not so much a day of rest. But who cares, since Zocalo is throwing a little end-of-summer bash. For $25 you’ll land everything from their house margaritas to sangria and small bites (guacamole, tacos), while drinking in the scene on their patio. And more margaritas.

Aug 23, 6-8pm, $25, Zocalo, 35 Stanhope St, 617-456-7849
