Things to do for July 05, 2012

The Weekender

Patrick Swayze, Old-Timey Baseball and Popsicles

The weekend is finding it hard to concentrate.

Thursday
Radio’s Car Talk. Now on Stage.
TALKIE

Radio’s Car Talk. Now on Stage.

When you heard last month that the NPR radio show Car Talk was ending after 25 years, it felt like a piece of you was dying. Luckily, someone has gone and made a musical based on the legendary program, and it’s playing in Cambridge. Yes, cars play a factor.

Your New 8am Juice Bar
JUICED

Your New 8am Juice Bar

Mornings can be tough. Helping you conquer them: fresh banana, apple cider, spinach and cucumber smoothies. With bee pollen. From a new juice spot on Dartmouth called, of all things, Juice. Remember, heavy bee pollen makes you irresistible to flowers.

Now open, 6am-8pm, Juice, 145 Dartmouth St, 617-248-5828

Friday
Prosecco Consumption. With Popsicles.
WHEATIES

Prosecco Consumption. With Popsicles.

The summertime drinking go-to: a cold beer. But if you’re looking to change it up, check out the Slippery When Wet, essentially a wheatgrass-infused blueberry, peach or raspberry popsicle bathing in a glass of chilled prosecco, which you can now grab at Emerald Lounge. Bubbly is always better with popsicles.

Sunday
Watching a Baseball Game from 1860
VERY CIVIL

Watching a Baseball Game from 1860

There’s just something about the Harbor Islands that screams “baseball game.” Well, good news: there’s one happening on Sunday, and it’ll be played as the game was in the mid-19th century, with era-correct rules and uniforms. Feel free to tell them who wins the 1860 election (yes, it was Lincoln).

Jul 8, 11:30am-3pm, no cost, Fort Warren, Georges Island, 617-223-8666, more info here

Monday
The Perfection That Is Point Break
RADICAL

The Perfection That Is Point Break

There are classics, and there are classics. Case in point: Swayze and Reeves in the 1991 epic Point Break, being screened at the Regal Beagle on Monday, with Johnny Utah–themed tiki drinks (think: 23-year aged rum, absinthe and brandy) served in vintage barware. Sadly, they don’t come with a Nixon mask.

Jul 9, 10pm, no cost (cash bar), The Regal Beagle, 308 Harvard St, Brookline, 617-739-5151
