Things to do for March 08, 2012

The Weekender

$1 Cheeseburgers, the Dan Band and Pie for Pi

The weekend blows a mean didgeridoo.

Thursday
Friday
Playing the Sound of Australia
DOWN UNDER

Playing the Sound of Australia

The didgeridoo: Australia’s best export after models and Paul Hogan. And tomorrow night in Cambridge, you can finally learn to play one. Your instructor: a 20-year-veteran didgeridoo-er who will be showing you the basics (think: circular breathing). Next up: vuvuzela lessons.

Saturday
The Dan Band. Live.
FAME

The Dan Band. Live.

Saturdays are for dinner-and-a-show-type dates. And if you have dinner locked up, allow us to offer an alternative to the ballet: your favorite (and only) band from The Hangover and Old School, playing at the Wilbur. Hopefully your date likes f-bombs during “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”

Monday
Dinner and a Runway Show at Tico
GIANT LEAP

Dinner and a Runway Show at Tico

Some Mondays end with you on the couch for some DVR catch-up. Others involve a chef’s tasting menu (tacos, small plates, a la plancha) and front-row seats for a showcase of Boston-based fashion starring leggy models. Like what’s happening at Tico on Monday. Choice is yours.

Mar 12, 8-10:30pm, $55, Tico, 222 Berkeley St, reserve at 617-351-0400

Tuesday
$1 Cheeseburgers. Boom.
HAPPY MEAL

$1 Cheeseburgers. Boom.

Cheeseburgers. The every-meal. But every-meals get pricey. Except when they’re a dollar. Which is what McGreevy’s is charging on Tuesday evenings for their juicy ground-beefer with American cheese. This may prove extremely bad for fast food everywhere.

Tuesdays starting Mar 13, 4-11pm, McGreevy’s, 911 Boylston St, 617-262-0911

Wednesday
Using Pi for Cheap Pie
PI OH MY

Using Pi for Cheap Pie

Two things you know about pi: it’s an extremely long number. And it starts with 3.14. And that’s all you need to know on Wednesday, when you can get a cup of coffee and a slice of apple pie for—wait for it—$3.14. No math required. Except the tip.
