Things to do for October 06, 2011
Female Bartenders, Mobile Lobster and WWII
The weekend already misses Tito.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
