Things to do for September 06, 2012
John Lennon, Pig Roasts and Audrey Hepburn
The weekend knows where one can locate roasted nuts.
Back in the day, you’d use a mall as your date-night backdrop (ah, adolescence). Well, tonight’s your shot to relive such years with a free screening of Breakfast at Tiffany’s at the garden in the Prudential shops. And just like the old days, feel free to employ a lot of Boyz II Men at your earliest convenience.
Buying art. Sometimes you do it at an Irish pub. Like tonight, as Ned Devine’s is hosting a silent auction of over 20 local artists’ work and a gift-certificate raffle (Lone Star Taco Bar, Davio’s) benefiting charity, with gratis passed apps and live local rock bands supplying tunes. Aggressive bidding requires a live band.
Somerville’s About to Get Nuts
Nuts have proven their worth far beyond the airline snack. And now, thanks to Q’s Nuts opening tomorrow, there’s a full store devoted to bringing you fresh bags of sweet-roasted, chocolate and cinnamon, and even spicy peanuts, almonds, pecans and cashews, made right in Somerville. An oft-overlooked nut stronghold.
A Tiki Festival in North Andover
Hawaii: hard to reach. A little closer: North Andover, home to Saturday’s Tiki Time Festival. Awaiting you: $1 passed Polynesian apps (pork from a whole-pig roast, shrimp skewers) and gratis samples of Kona beer. And live Hawaiian music and fire throwers. Now would be the appropriate time to make a getting lei’d joke...
A Multimedia Concert on an Island
Harbor Island alert: there’s a three-hour live local music festival (yes, it includes a John Lennon songwriting competition winner) and Narragansett beer tasting on Georges Island on Saturday. It’s billed as a multimedia event, so there’s a good chance you’ll be flanked by a variety of digital wizardry. Or just a few flat-screens.
