Things to do for February 02, 2012

The Weekender

Big Hats, Belgian Beers and All-You-Can-Eat Chili

The weekend is willing to give Gronk its ankle.

Beer Comes to Saus

Beer Comes to Saus

For ages you waited for Belgian waffles and poutine to appear near Government Center. And then Saus arrived. Then you said, “It would be even better if they had beer.” And now they do, heavy on the strong Belgian bottles (Gulden Draak, Piraat). You tend to roll with strong Belgians.

Available now at Saus, 33 Union St, 617-248-8835

Free Chili. Repeat: Free Chili.

Free Chili. Repeat: Free Chili.

Free chili. The phrase is music to your ears. And for three hours this Saturday, it will be completely real. Chefs from Russell House Tavern, Orinoco and Grafton Street will be bringing their A-game and their best chili. You just have to bring your stomach. And maybe a chili bib. 

Feb 4, 1-3pm, no cost, Harvard Square at 30 Brattle St, Cambridge

Catalyst Gets into the Brunch Game

Catalyst Gets into the Brunch Game

Kendall Square can be dicey when it comes to brunch. But it just got a little less dicey, now that Catalyst is dishing out Peppercorn Buttermilk Biscuits and Poached Farm Egg with Pancetta as part of its new brunch service, available only on Sundays. You’re on your own for Saturday. 

This Monday: Hats and Dancing in JP

This Monday: Hats and Dancing in JP

Sometimes you just want to dance. Say, to music of the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s. With hats. Enter Tres Gatos, which is moving the tables out for a monstrous big-hat dance party till midnight on Monday. Go ahead, wear your Super Bowl XLVI sombrero. 

Feb 6, 5:30pm-midnight, cash bar, Tres Gatos, 470 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, 617-477-4851
