Things to do for January 12, 2012

The Weekender

Total Request Live, Donut Theater and Devil’s Sauce

The weekend travels with a live band.

Thursday
You. Tonight. Singing. On Stage.
ROCK OF AGES

You. Tonight. Singing. On Stage.

Recall if you will Total Request Live. Now, put that in the Lansdowne Pub every Thursday starting tonight, and make the requests executed by a live band. And then add the option of you doing the singing. And pouring your own stouts. This is a no-lose situation. 

Thursdays starting Jan 12, 9pm-2am, The Lansdowne Pub, 9 Lansdowne St, 617-247-1222

Just Your Average Play About Donuts
LYRICAL

Just Your Average Play About Donuts

Some things are difficult to grasp. Health care. Campaign finance reform. The appeal of American Stuffers. Then there’s Superior Donuts at the Lyric Stage, which is a comedy-drama set in a donut shop in Chicago. We hear the bear claw’s performance is riveting. 

Tuesday
Tangling with Seriously Hot Food
SPICE WORLD

Tangling with Seriously Hot Food

Perhaps knowing your tolerance for spicy foods, Zocalo is throwing a “Dancing with the Devil” night. Think: shredded pork tacos with chipotle chilies, spicy Manhattans with hellfire bitters and Devil’s Sauce for everything, made with some of the hottest chilies in the world. Something warm sounds good right about now. 

Getting Down with Some Port
PORT-LAND

Getting Down with Some Port

Then again, by Tuesday you’ll be wrapped up in all things South Carolina, which for some reason reminds you of port wine. Enter Legal’s Park Plaza, which is pairing fish, duck and hickory-wood-grilled lamb shoulder with vintage port. And for dessert: Romney. No, actually: more port.
