Things to do for April 26, 2012

The Weekender

Cougars, $1 Oysters and Cinco de Uno

The weekend is a piñata filled with rainbows and unicorns.

Thursday
The Common’s New Food Truck
CLOVER FIELD

The Common’s New Food Truck

Ah, Boston Common in spring. The blooming flowers. The sweet air. The Sweet Potato Sandwiches, Soy BLTs and Parsnip Fritters. All served from a beloved health-conscious food truck, now stationed at the park. Which means you have a whole new reason to delay returning to work.

Now open, 7am-7pm daily, Clover PRK, located at the corner of Tremont and Park St

Cambridge’s New Pizza Haven
STAR STRUCK

Cambridge’s New Pizza Haven

Like sex and the Three Stooges, pizza is good anytime. Even better: when it comes topped with everything from meat loaf and chile relleno to goat cheese and soft baked eggs—like the kind found at All Star Pizza Bar, opening today in Inman Square. It’s time you had more meat-loaf-y pizza.

Friday
$1 Oysters. Happy Friday.
DOLLA BACK

Sometimes, after a long week, all you want to do is leave the office and call it an early night. When that fails, you head to somewhere like Pigalle, which is offering $1 oysters on Fridays as well as a full shellfish bar to kick off the weekend. Save sleep for Sunday.

Fridays, 5:30-10:30pm, Pigalle, 75 Charles St S, 617-423-4944

Monday
Watching The Graduate on 35mm
MRS. ROBINSON

Watching The Graduate on 35mm

There’s nothing like the classics. Actually, there is: seeing a bona fide American classic like Mike Nichols’s 1967 coming-of-age film The Graduate screened on 35mm at the Coolidge Corner Theatre this Monday. We’re not sure why, but Mondays and Dustin Hoffman seem to go well together.

Tuesday
Cinco de Mayo. On the First.
UNO

Cinco de Mayo. On the First.

Joining your favorite preholiday holidays like July 3 and the day before Thanksgiving: a one-night party pre-celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Tuesday at Church. For $50, there’ll be a five-course dinner (carnitas-style suckling pig, Wagyu flank carne asada), with each course paired with tequila. If only church-church served tequila...
