Welcome to the future: where you’ll glide to the beach in a sleek, gasless electronic bike called the Jetson. Where your iPhone doubles as a remote-controlled camera, taking your conference calls to the next level. Where your mom wakes up to a diamond watch flown in from Paris. The future is now.
Things to do for May 10, 2012
The World’s Largest Pancake Breakfast. And Other Weekend Engagements.
If you need the weekend, it will be sunning itself on the roof deck.
Nick’s Comedy Stop. Now at Moksa.
Stand-up comedy. It requires a room, a mic and a person telling jokes. Sounds simple enough. So Moksa has decided to turn its enormous back room Naga into the new Cambridge outpost for Nick’s Comedy Stop every Friday and Saturday night. Edamame makes everything funnier.
Midnight Serrano Ham in Somerville
When you’re hungry at midnight, sometimes you eat a slice of pizza. Other times, a Pop-Tart. But now, thanks to tapas mecca Casa B, you can land hearty snacks like serrano ham and manchego cheese tapas till 1am. No, there isn’t a tapas equivalent to Pop-Tarts.
World’s. Largest. Pancake. Breakfast.
If you find yourself near Springfield on Saturday, there’s something you should experience. The world’s largest pancake breakfast will be thrown right on Main Street, where $3 gets you a stack of cakes and some Italian bacon. Here’s hoping they remember the Mrs. Butterworth’s.
A Book Signing. With BBQ Sauce.
BBQ sauce. Southerners covet it. People named Bubba swear by it. And on Saturday, you can have your homemade version of it sampled and critiqued by BBQ god Andy Husbands of Tremont 647. He’ll also be signing copies of his new grilling cookbook. Say hi to Bubba.
Your Work Lunch: Now More Picnic-y
The Greenway. A good place to stroll during a lunch hour. And now that Trade is offering takeout picnic boxes during the week, you can stroll along it with a chopped-pork-shoulder sandwich, orzo pasta salad and vanilla butter cookies. Bringing a red-checkered blanket: totally optional.
