This week’s looking handsome. Because for $100, you’re getting $150 worth of grooming essentials from the likes of Kiehl’s and Baxter Finley. Plus, your backyard’s getting a secret grill, disguised as a potted plant. Finally, take 25% off a portable pro-grade DJ mixer, so easy to use, a caveman could do it.
Things to do for August 16, 2012
The Weekend: Milking White Russians from Fake Cows
The weekend sees your fake sick day and raises you a fake sick week.
An Asian-French Pop-Up Downtown
As chance has it, the Bon Me food truck and Cambridge’s new bastion for French yum-yums, West Bridge, have paired up for a pop-up experience on the Greenway. Tickets should sell out, so if four courses of still-secret fusion-ness (hint: expect crostini) and by-request picnic blankets are your idea of after-work fun: go.
The Area’s First Burger Truck
Speaking of food trucks, the time has come to add one more to your Twitter feed of internal-combustion-engine-based mobile eats around the city (and on occasion, Norwood): Boston’s Baddest Burger & Sandwich Co. We’ll give you two guesses as to what their specialties are. Whoa... good guesses.
Coffee and Burritos Under One Roof
Okay, so you’ve discovered your GPS-navigating skills have led you astray in Cambridge and suddenly plopped you out in Belmont (the next town over). Don’t be incredibly afraid. Now there’s coffee-and-Mexican-roll-up saviors Café Burrito, a burrito and java house like no other in that area. Seriously. They’re the only one.
Your Saturday evenings involve [REDACTED]. Your Saturday evening this week: country night at Kings. Think: mechanical bulls, fake-cow milking competitions (spewing White Russians, naturally) and country-ish food and drinks, like infused sweet teas and a lot of corn-bean salad concoctions. Tip: give Rascal Flatts’ catalog a once-over before you arrive.
A Party with Travel Implications
Alert: for three hours on Wednesday, Wakefield-based exotic excursion facilitators Off the Grid are throwing a little fiesta. Involved: gratis travel-themed food (red curry tenderloin sliders, Moroccan grilled chicken) and $200 off any 2013 trip you plan with them. Which is $200 more to spend on in-flight liquor.
