Things to do for March 22, 2012

The Weekender

Celtics Banners, Irish Cinema and Roller Derby (And You Thought St. Patrick’s Day Was Last Weekend)

The weekend has the top down.

Thursday
Boston’s Champ Banners, Up Close
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS

Boston’s Champ Banners, Up Close

We know: the pain of the Super Bowl still lingers. What you need: a reminder of our city’s collective glory. Like a display of all 23 of the Garden’s famed championship Celtics and Bruins banners, showing in a gym in Dorchester today. Call it another reason to leave work early.

Screening Irish Cinema in Cambridge
POST-PAT’S

Screening Irish Cinema in Cambridge

If you’ve still got some St. Pat’s celebrating in you, good news: the Irish Film Festival kicks off tonight with a director-present screening of Stella Days, set in 1950s Ireland, and ends Sunday with a documentary exploring John Ford’s The Quiet Man, with commentary by Martin Scorsese. Who’s as Irish as they come.

Mar 22-25, starts tonight at 7:30pm at The Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge, 617-876-6837

Friday
Foodie Culture. Spoofed.
WHAT A PIG

Foodie Culture. Spoofed.

If foodie culture is something you view with thinly veiled sarcasm, you’ll enjoy Pig: A Restaurant, the send-up of all things food-geeky, playing tomorrow night at ImprovBoston. They’ll poke fun at everything from food writers to pork-obsessed restaurants. Not that there’s anything wrong with either...

Sipping Harborside Cocktails. For Art.
SHUTTERBUGS

Sipping Harborside Cocktails. For Art.

This weather probably has you thinking of a reason to spend tomorrow night along the water. Suggestion: this photography exhibit featuring the work of four Boston photogs amidst cocktails and a live DJ—all at a wraparound bar overlooking the harbor. No, it’s not at your apartment.

Saturday
Tough Women Roller-Battling
ROLLER GIRLS

Tough Women Roller-Battling

When it comes to anything involving fit women, roller skates and aggression: you’re in. So you’ll want to see the Boston Derby Dames launch their season on Saturday, followed by an on-site after-party where you’ll dance with the ladies themselves. Chances of them getting served on the dance floor: small.
