Things to do for February 09, 2012
Military Blankets, Turkish Music and Secret Ramen
The weekend looms greatly.
Vintage Military Stuff at Ball and Buck
It’s cold out. You could use some industrial-strength warmth. Or better yet, some military-strength warmth. Enter Ball and Buck, which has just received a shipment of vintage US military wool blankets by Faribault Woolen Mill Co. It’s a little bit like snuggling up with Eisenhower. In a good way.
Old Mare: Gone. New Mare: Oyster-y.
Makeovers are good. Take, for example, Fenway. Or the North End’s Mare, reopening this Friday as Mare Oyster Bar, complete with a face-lifted dining room and a new raw bar for littleneck clams, oysters, shrimp and, of course, chilled Maine lobster. Which needs no makeover.
Turkish music. You’re an expert. Okay, that’s a lie. You don’t even know what it is. But you will, thanks to a crash course on the subject led by a Grammy-nominated Turkish musician. You’ll even get to try some of the instruments. Get there early to claim the rebab.
You’ve gambled on the Bruins (see: Cup, Stanley). But you’ve never gambled with the Bruins. All that changes Sunday, when current and former Boston pucksters like Cam Neely will be shuffling cards with you at the State Room. Watch out for spontaneous and totally unnecessary fighting.
The rumors are true: a midnight ramen event thrown by some O Ya veterans is set for this Monday. So if you want in on the action, start following their Twitter handle ASAP. Unfortunately, you still can’t eat ramen via Twitter.
