Things to do for October 20, 2011
Lingerie, DeLoreans and BBQ on a Mountain
The weekend is about to occupy wine street.
Lingerie, Models and Bubbly
It’s been a long week. You deserve a little something. Say, sexy lingerie-clad models strolling around a boutique in Beacon Hill. Along with pink bubbly, an assortment of cheeses and cupcakes, and prizes like boudoir session packages at Ma Cherie Studios. For you or someone in your life. Mostly you.
Head of the Charles. Same old race, same old boilerplate eats. Not this year, now that Island Creek Oyster Bar will be stationing itself in an opulent food palace (okay, a kiosk) and offering a raw bar, lobster rolls and grilled cheese. Try to watch a little racing between courses.
If you’re looking for your next auto obsession, swing by the extinct-car show in Brookline on Saturday. Besides the burgers and dogs on hand, you’ll check out everything from an American Underslung (it’s a car) to DeLoreans—aka the missing piece to your Marty McFly Halloween costume.
It’s not quite ski season yet, but that’s never stopped you from taking to a mountain. So if you head to Nashoba Valley on Sunday, you’ll have five hours to do a little pre-slopes partying via some killer BBQ, live bluegrass and even a tasting at the Nashoba Valley Winery. Ah, fall.
Closing Down Sunday with Pinot
Usually on Sunday, you spend the day dissecting football. This Sunday, you’ll call an audible (so to speak) and head to a wine tasting at Brix featuring four different pinot noirs, and pork-based small bites supplied by the Gallows. Who knows, they may even have the game on.
