Now Reopen: Redbones Food Truck
BONE-IN

Now Reopen: Redbones Food Truck

It was a long winter. The winds blew. The snow was... sorta here. But finally, the Redbones food truck has returned, resuming its efforts to make your lunch runs for full racks of St. Louis ribs, BBQ hash and candied yams as productive as possible. Say thank you.

Sunday
Free Sailing. And BBQ.
SO COURAGEOUS

Free Sailing. And BBQ.

You’ve said that this is the year you finally buy that 190-foot yacht. So if you need a refresher on basic sailing skills, hit the open house at Courageous Sailing on Sunday. There’ll be three hours of gratis harbor sails on 19-foot sailboats. There will also be burgers.

Apr 22, noon-3pm, no cost, Courageous Sailing, Pier 4, Charlestown Navy Yard, 617-242-3821

Monday
10 Chefs. Dinner. You.
FAMILY MATTERS

10 Chefs. Dinner. You.

Monday dinner: always a dilemma. This week’s solution: Tremont647’s fund-raiser blowout featuring 10 of the best chefs in town from the likes of Sweet Cheeks, Blue Inc. and Hamersley’s. There’ll be passed apps, amuse-bouche and five courses like Buffalo Chicken Oysters and Oxtail Ravioli. Tuesday’s going to have to bring the thunder.

Apr 23, 5:30-10pm, $150, Tremont647, 647 Tremont St, reserve at 617-266-4600

Tuesday
A Master BBQ Lecture. With BBQ.
THE PITS

A Master BBQ Lecture. With BBQ.

The thunder: BBQ-god-on-earth and PBS fixture Steven Raichlen will be giving a lecture on the history of live-fire cooking and the etymological origins of barbecue (hint: it’s the Greeks), followed by you consuming beer from Cambridge Brewing Co. and BBQ from Bondir. Nicely played, Tuesday.

Apr 24, 5pm, no cost, Geological Lecture Hall at Harvard, 24 Oxford St, Cambridge, 617-496-1027

Wednesday
7 Days of Indie Flicks Kick Off
INDIE CRED

7 Days of Indie Flicks Kick Off

Your independent spirit: there all your life. The independent spirit of the Independent Film Festival Boston: here only for the next seven days. It kicks off Wednesday in Somerville with Sleepwalk with Me, a feature based off the This American Life series from PRI. You don’t get much more independent than Ira Glass.
