This is huge: you’re going to see Springsteen at Fenway next week. And you’re doing it from the best seats in the house, with gratis beer and food. Also: you’re getting 20% off Swiss-made, pocket-size portable speakers and 30% off Nova Scotia lobster—the same kind served on the tables of royalty.
Things to do for August 09, 2012
Gillette Stadium Boxing and Other Weekend Alerts
The weekend will not miss those Russian jackets.
You appreciate a well-made BLT. You also appreciate being on a boat. So we’ve got good news: tickets to the BLT Battle at Sea are available now. There’ll be delicious sandwiches from the likes of Chez Henri and Trina’s, cold suds (Smuttynose, Clown Shoes) and karaoke. Again: bacon, karaoke, boat. Go.
Your laugh. Gregarious enough to shake entire comedy clubs. Luckily, the Big Sauce Rooftop Comedy Night featuring four local joke-slingers is going down outside, on the roof deck of Splash Ultra Lounge tonight, so feel free to release the full decibel roar without worry. Just watch those knee-slaps of yours.
Most in-store mixers at local shops are usually tied to some sale or new product release. Which is fine. But if you hit the three-hour soiree at Uncle Pete’s tomorrow, when there’ll be gratis vodka and a live DJ, know that the only reason they’re throwing it is to party. That’s it. Be sure to thank them.
Advanced Picnicking on the Common
You pack a mean picnic basket (mean = ample gourmet pickles). But if you want to up your game while date-night-ing it on the Common, grab a fancy picnic tote packed with duck prosciutto, artisanal cheese and quiche from Artisan Bistro at the Ritz. Red-checkered blanket: not included.
Watching Boxing at Gillette Stadium
Pugilism alert: the first-ever sanctioned boxing match at Gillette Stadium is taking place after the Revolution game on Sunday in Foxboro. One of the fighters: Framingham native “Irish” Danny O’Connor. His manager: Ken Casey from the Dropkick Murphys. So expect “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” to be heard at least once.
