Things to do for March 01, 2012

The Weekender

Waffles, $1 Oysters, and... Iceland

The weekend still allows beer in its clubhouse.

Thursday
Saus Turns One. You Get Waffles.
WAFFLING

Saus Turns One. You Get Waffles.

Birthdays are great. Especially when it’s someone else’s and you still get presents. Head to Belgian emporium Saus to honor their first year, and they’ll give you the gift of gratis waffles. You don’t even have to unwrap them.

Mar 1, until midnight, Saus, 33 Union St, 617-248-8835

$1 Oysters. You’re In...
SEASON’D

$1 Oysters. You’re In...

Charlestown waterfront go-to Tavern on the Water is opening for the season today, with $1 oysters at the ready. And oh, are you ready. (The weather: less ready, in terms of their patio. But when that day comes...)

Friday
40% Off Winter Gear at Uniform
OLD MAN WINTER

40% Off Winter Gear at Uniform

Yesterday’s freak snowfall: a reminder that spring is still a ways off. Good timing, then, that Uniform is knocking 40% off winter gear from Shipley & Halmos, Spiewak and more. Winter isn’t fooling you for a second.

Ongoing, Uniform, 511 Tremont St, 617-247-2360

Saturday
Like Dogsledding with More Crazy People
HOT ROD

Like Dogsledding with More Crazy People

Sleds made from shopping carts. A best-costume contest. A strong to very strong chance of mid-race imbibing. But enough about your Presidents’ Day party, let’s talk this weekend’s Urban Iditarod. It will have all those things and start at 10am Saturday. Happy racing...

Enjoying the Dulcet Sounds of Iceland
ICE ICE BABY

Enjoying the Dulcet Sounds of Iceland

Iceland. Home of Björk, Sigur Rós and out-of-control national debt. Celebrate it all this weekend with a free concert at the Paradise, featuring local and Icelandic musicians performing together. Or at the Kendall Square Cinema’s Icelandic film fest, which includes a woman who talks to the dead. The Sixth Sense by way of Reykjavík.
