Things to do for August 25, 2011

The Weekender

$1 Tacos, Ribs for Lunch and Dueling Pianos

The weekend has a newfound respect for the West Coast.

Thursday
A Shack Devoted to Lunch. And Ribs.
RIBBING

A Shack Devoted to Lunch. And Ribs.

Surviving an earthquake can really put things in perspective. Perspective: forgoing the normal salad at lunchtime and living it up with a full rack of ribs, mac and cheese, and pulled-pork sandwiches. Enter Redbones’s new rib shack in Kendall Square. And a nap afterward.

Now open Mon-Fri, 11am-5pm, Redbones, 300 Athenaeum St, Cambridge, see the menu

After-Work Taco-ing for $1
TAC-OH

After-Work Taco-ing for $1

As if you needed another reason to get excited for getting out of work each evening, we found one anyway: Lolita is offering $1 tacos (achiote BBQ, pulled pork, slow-cooked brisket) and $2 seven-ounce Mexican beers for two hours, five days a week. Be sure to breathe between tacos.

Sunday
Partying with Two Pianos. No Cover.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Partying with Two Pianos. No Cover.

Hanging at a piano bar on a Sunday night: sure, why not. Hanging at a piano bar on a Sunday night when it’s offering no cover and two hours of gratis buffet-style bites due to its first birthday: absolutely. Just watch out for musical theater majors.

Roasted Beef Slider-ing After 1am
LATE NIGHT

Roasted Beef Slider-ing After 1am

The good news: Citizen has extended their drinking hours to 2am, and in honor of this, they’re throwing a little party on Sunday. Think: Sailor Jerry rum, local tallboys and gratis roasted beef sliders and gnocchi mac and cheese from their new “night owl” menu. Bad news: Monday.

Monday
One Last Mojito Monday Before Fall
LAST HURRAH

One Last Mojito Monday Before Fall

Speaking of Mondays, this Monday is your last chance to experience RumBa’s Mojito Monday overlooking Fort Point Channel. You’ll learn to make a couple of their signature mojitos (and try them), graze off the free apps and even take home a muddler. Your home bar is now complete.

Aug 29, 6-7pm, $35, RumBa at the InterContinental Boston, 510 Atlantic Ave, 617-217-5151
