Things to do for September 22, 2011

The Weekender

Surf Rock, Hangover Burgers and Hard Shucking

The weekend graces the cover of the October issue.

Thursday
Exclusive Shoes and Bacon Explosions
PERK ALERT

Exclusive Shoes and Bacon Explosions

We’re getting you the exclusive on a couple one-of-a-kind shoes from the venerable Maine-based cobbling outfit, Rancourt & Co. (Ralph Lauren’s go-to guys.) Then we’re airmailing you three Bacon Explosions (enough said). And finally, we’re getting you half off a champagne-soaked endless summer at NYC’s hottest hotel. Just go with it...

Friday
Ponies and Hamburger Pizza at Midnight
LATE NIGHT

Ponies and Hamburger Pizza at Midnight

Late-night bites. The day’s most underrated meal. Thus, Blue Inc. begins a new themed late-night menu at the bar on weekends. For the remainder of September, it’s “pizza and beer” (think: buckets of ponies and hamburger pizza), followed by “tacos and margaritas” in October. November’s theme: “Tums.”

Fri-Sat, 10pm-midnight, Blue Inc., 131 Broad St, 617-261-5353

Saturday
75 Beers. Free Sausage. Get On It.
SUDS-ING

75 Beers. Free Sausage. Get On It.

Fall in New England is synonymous with weekend drives through the changing foliage. And you can skip right over that on Saturday if landing gratis sausage and brats while sampling five ounces of over 75 beers (Allagash, Sixpoint) trumps leaf-peeping in your eyes. We think it just may.

Sep 24, 2-6pm, no entry cost, $2 sample tickets, British Beer Company, 85 Providence Hwy, Walpole, 508-668-9909

Sunday
Proper Football Food-ing
HOLY DAY

Proper Football Food-ing

The only thing better than watching football on Sundays with a spread of killer wings, cheese fries, beef skewers and beer: doing it at your local haunt. Canary Square is offering said staples (including something called the “hangover burger”) during Sunday games all season long. No, you can’t crash there.

NFL Sundays, noon-close, Canary Square, 435 S Huntington Ave, Jamaica Plain, 617-524-2500

Oysters and Surf Rock in Plymouth
SHUCK OFF

Oysters and Surf Rock in Plymouth

Football or not, some Sundays just scream “oysters.” And others scream “surf rock.” Get both in Plymouth this Sunday at Union Fish, featuring $1 Island Creek oysters, oyster shooters, a shuck-off and, of course, a live surf-rock band. Sex Wax not required, but not frowned upon either.

Sep 25, 3-9pm, cash bar, Union Fish, 14 Union St, Plymouth, 508-747-4503

Monday
Guacamole and Tequila. Pals.
SAMPLING

Guacamole and Tequila. Pals.

The Mondays. They plague your every week. A known remedy: guacamole, especially when it’s at Papagayo’s epic Guacapalooza. Awaiting you: live music, passed apps and multiple guac stations, each paired with blanco, reposado and añejo tequilas. We anxiously await Sour Cream-stock.
