Things to do for October 06, 2011

The Weekender

Female Bartenders, Mobile Lobster and WWII

The weekend already misses Tito.

Thursday
Friday
Lunching on Lobster. From a Truck.
SEA LOVE

Lunching on Lobster. From a Truck.

Around these parts, a good lobster roll isn’t that hard to find. Making it even easier: Lobsta Love, the new food truck parked at Harvard offering pure Maine lobster in everything from rolls to shots of bisque to mac and cheese topped with the stuff. It’s like college all over again.

Fri-Sun and Tue, 11am-4:45pm, outside the Harvard Science Center, 1 Oxford St, Cambridge, see the schedule

Saturday
Reliving WWII. In Stow.
GEARS OF WAR

Reliving WWII. In Stow.

You should take full advantage of the nice weather this weekend. Here’s one way: heading to Stow for a WWII battle reenactment. You’ll admire the original M1 rifles, then watch as fully operational WWII planes take to the skies. Keep those The Pacific references short when meeting the vets.

Sunday
Destroy Ribs in East Cambridge
HEAVY RIBBING

Destroy Ribs in East Cambridge

The perfect smoked BBQ rib. You’re known for sniffing it out. And for $20 on Sunday, you’ll get to. Feast on 10 samples of pit-smoked ribs from the likes of Redbones, Trina’s Starlite Lounge and Think Tank, then vote on a winner. Go ahead, deliberate hard.

Guy Fawkes, the Beach and Rhode Island
HEY GUY

Guy Fawkes, the Beach and Rhode Island

Or you could head to Rhode Island and the beachfront of the Andrea Hotel on Sunday. There you’ll find a massive bonfire, Monty Python-esque skits (hint: they’re about Guy Fawkes Day) and live music from a Moody Blues front man and Wings founder. Yes, he’ll be playing “Band on the Run.”

Oct 9, 7pm, no cost, Andrea Hotel, 89 Atlantic Ave, Westerly, RI, 401-322-1026

Monday
Hot Women Bartending. Fast.
RACK ’EM UP

Hot Women Bartending. Fast.

If there’s one thing you love on a Monday, it’s watching 16 women in a bartending-off where they are tested for speed and accuracy in drink slinging, while you sample their wares and nibble on bites from spots like Citizen, Coppa and Myers + Chang. Oh, and it’s called Speed Rack.
