Things to do for August 23, 2012

The Weekender

Jennifer Grey, Local Beers and Old Swedish Cars

The weekend is already gambling on football.

Thursday
After-Work Bubbly and Oysters. Tonight.
MOLLUSK-Y

After-Work Bubbly and Oysters. Tonight.

A good way to relieve workday stress: the gym. A better way: oysters and champagne. And if you hit Central Bottle tonight, you’ll get a dozen fresh-shucked Island Creek oysters, and flights of regular and rosé bubbly. The gym will still be there tomorrow...

Friday
Dirty Dancing. Now 25 Years Old.
SWAYZE-ING

Dirty Dancing. Now 25 Years Old.

Every woman has two weak spots. One, you know. The other: 1987’s Dirty Dancing. Works anytime, anyplace. The place tomorrow night: the free outdoor screening at the Boston Harbor Hotel, playing in honor of the hotel being born in 1987. Try not to seat your date in the corner.

Aug 24, starts at sunset, no cost, cash bar, Boston Harbor Hotel, 70 Rowes Wharf, 617-439-7000

30 Mass Brewers and You. Drinking.
PRETTY CRAFTY

30 Mass Brewers and You. Drinking.

Clown Shoes. Blatant. Deadwood. No, not the names of superheroes who never made the cut, but three of the 27 Massachusetts brewers offering you samples of more than 80 beers at the World Trade Center tomorrow. There’ll even be a live band, who should change their name to Blatant immediately.

Sunday
This Sunday: Classic Swedish Cars
SWEDE ALL ABOUT IT

This Sunday: Classic Swedish Cars

Sweden. In the eighth to 11th centuries: home to Vikings. And in the 20th century: home to some cool cars. Evidence: the Swedish car show happening in Brookline on Sunday, featuring pre-1980 custom Volvos and even some rare Saab Sonetts, made intermittently between 1955 and 1974. No, they don’t come with Viking hood ornaments.
