Things to do for June 07, 2012
Nic Cage, Black Ties and Partying on a Boat
The weekend isn’t going back to Miami.
Chilled Lobster Tails = Lunch
If the return of sunny skies has you thinking about where to grab midday grub outdoors, here’s something to add to your weapons cache: Towne’s wood-grilled pizzas, French dip sandwiches and chilled lobster tails are now available out on their patio for lunch. This may not bode well for work.
Partying on a Three-Deck Boat
You’ve been working hard. You deserve a party. Something big. Something, say, on a humongous boat with three decks, two dance floors, dancing girls, a DJ spinning raging house music and two cash bars for four hours on a Saturday night. Like we said: a party.
You don’t wear a tux very often. The Oscars, the Emmys, the occasional Celtics game. But you’ll want to don your best penguin suit for the MFA’s Solid Gold party on Saturday, where you’ll be treated to art, cocktails and live performance artists. No, not Rondo.
UMass: Now a Food Truck Haven
Tons of grilled cheese. Lobster rolls upon lobster rolls. Hot dogs. No, not breakfast last Sunday (though it was very close), but a sampling of what’s before you at the food truck festival happening at UMass, where you’ll get one portion from each of over 20 local vendors this Sunday. Yes.
Nicolas Cage. After years and years of sometimes excellent and other times totally insane performances (see: the bees scene in The Wicker Man), your favorite pile of crazy is getting his due treatment at the Brattle, with screenings of his work over the next week and a half. You’ve been warned.
