Things to do for June 14, 2012

The Weekender

Endless Fried Chicken, Friar Tuck’s Brew and Dad’s Mustache

Do not pass go. Go directly to the weekend.

Thursday
Sweet Cheeks, Now with a Beer Garden
CHEEK-Y

Sweet Cheeks, Now with a Beer Garden

Sweet Cheeks has gone and done what any rational, sane person would do if they had a perfectly good 48-seat patio space attached to their restaurant. They’ve turned it into a beer garden, with an outdoor bar, four rotating beer taps and the full menu available. Beer gardens win. Always.

Saturday
Drinking Friar Tuck’s Brew
CRAFTY

Drinking Friar Tuck’s Brew

Seven. That’s how many hours you’ll have on Saturday to try the suds of 30 local breweries including the likes of Notch, Cambridge Brewing Co. and Ipswich. You’ll also be able to sample mead, the strong liquor made with honey that was beloved by Friar Tuck. Yes, that Friar Tuck.

Sunday
Dr. Phil’s Barber Would Like a Word...
’STACHE IT

Dr. Phil’s Barber Would Like a Word...

You and Dad: already pals. But if you’re looking for a way to further bond, know that Ball and Buck’s barbershop is hosting the master barber who once shaved off Dr. Phil’s ’stache on Oprah, and letting him perform hot shaves and cuts all day. It’s time Dad lost “Tom Selleck.”

Monday
This Monday: Endless Fried Chicken
CRISPY

This Monday: Endless Fried Chicken

Every once in a while, it seems like someone out there is listening (besides us). This is one of those times, because Happy’s is now serving all-you-can-eat fried chicken every Monday night. Yes, you heard us right. And no, it’s not cool if you stuff your pockets with some.

Next Sunday
Lots and Lots and Lots of Bacon
PORCINE DREAMS

Lots and Lots and Lots of Bacon

Get ready. Because a week from this Sunday, 20 local amateur chefs will be descending upon Somerville, given 15 pounds of bacon and instructed to make whatever the hell they want (beyond a giant 15-pound plate of bacon). With you as a judge, sampling their wares. You’re an excellent judge of wares.
