Things to do for April 12, 2012
Springsteen, Quail Eggs and ’70s Horror
The weekend is already stretching.
Now Open: Park in Harvard Square
Harvard Square just got a lot more bourbon-y thanks to Park, now open in the old Redline space. We think you’ll like the oak bar, red-leather booths and fried quail eggs on toast. Oh, and there’s a 50-strong beer list. In case you want a beer with your bourbon.
You’re a great photographer. Someone who’s better: former Time and Rolling Stone shutterbug Peter Simon, whose work is on display at Yes.Oui.Si. starting tonight. You’ll see pictures of the ’60s protests, vintage Dylan and Springsteen, and even the recent Occupy movement. No, none of them were shot on Instagram.
The good news: you can spend your Friday the 13th watching two horror movies from the ’70s—one about an extremely violent biker gang, and the other about a group of vengeance-seeking nuns. The bad news: somebody made a vengeance-seeking nuns movie before you had the chance to.
You treasure Saturday afternoons in the city. Strolls through the Back Bay. Picnics on the Common. Samples of 200 beers from 77 vendors, all while you nosh on pretzels and a live band supplies the tunes. Sounds like your last house party.
Monday, you’ll dominate the marathon. Sunday, you’ll learn how to run. At this hour-long workshop at the Seaport, you’ll acquire tricks to reduce spine and leg stress, and pick up other helpful running tips. You’ll also try out some promo sneakers. Piece of advice: don’t wear them on Monday.
