Things to do for June 21, 2012

The Weekender

Michael Keaton, White Lightning and Martha’s Vineyard

Please forward the weekend’s calls to the pool.

Thursday
Friday
Drinking Beer at 8am. On a Ferry.
FERRY NICE

Drinking Beer at 8am. On a Ferry.

Ducking out of work on a Friday morning to head to Martha’s Vineyard: always tempting. Making it more tempting: the Steamship Authority has begun serving beer and wine on its 8am ferries to the Rock. Ah, we see you’ve just bought tickets. Nice.

Watching Joe Piscopo’s Best Movie
LIVING DANGEROUSLY

Watching Joe Piscopo’s Best Movie

Joe Piscopo. For a brief time, he was considered funny. And tomorrow, you can see the crowning jewel in his film oeuvre when the Boston Harbor Hotel screens the 1984 Michael Keaton mob spoof Johnny Dangerously. No Godfather comparisons, please.

Saturday
Sampling Moonshine for Two Hours
SHINE ON

Sampling Moonshine for Two Hours

Moonshine. It’s had many terms associated with it. White Lightning. Hooch. Mountain Dew (not the soda). And for two hours in Westborough on Saturday: free, since you’ll be sampling stuff from 19 shine-ers like XXX Shine, Ole Smoky and Death’s Door. That last one scares us.

Jun 23, 7-9pm, no cost, Julio’s Liquors, 140 Turnpike Rd, Westborough, 508-366-1942

Sunday
The Painted Burro: Now with Brunch
WHAT A DONKEY

The Painted Burro: Now with Brunch

Good news: you’ve got one more Davis Square brunch option. The Painted Burro launches service this Sunday with Yucatan Meatloaf (two fried eggs, sirloin loaf, ham and chorizo) and cocktails like the tequila sunrise. Which also describes your mornings.

A Boston Crime Novel. Performed Live.
PERFECT CRIME

A Boston Crime Novel. Performed Live.

Gone Baby Gone. The Town. The Departed. When it comes to depictions of Boston’s Irish criminal underworld, you’ve seen all of them. So you’ll want to catch the last Oberon performance of the classic 1970 crime novel The Friends of Eddie Coyle. Enjoy those accents.

Jun 24, 6pm, $15-$25, Oberon, 2 Arrow St, Harvard Square, Cambridge, 617-496-8004, tickets here
