Things to do for September 13, 2012

The Weekender

Take a Saloon. Add a Beer Garden. Go.

The weekend never fumbles a spike.

Thursday
Friday
A Slightly Secret House Party. In JP.
HOUSE PARTY

A Slightly Secret House Party. In JP.

This recent lack of house parties has left a void in your heart. Void filler: this party in a private Victorian-y residence, featuring a live performance mishmash of SNL-style skits, cooking demonstrations and even stand-up, interspliced with a local pop-rock band. And it’s BYOB. Just like the good ol’ days.

Saturday
Take a Saloon. Add a Beer Garden. Go.
GREAT GARDEN

Take a Saloon. Add a Beer Garden. Go.

Your Monday dream: involved bratwurst, knockwurst and ale-braised sauerkraut. Take the hint: your brain is in an Oktoberfest mood. Luckily, there’s a one-day outdoor beer garden flanking Olde Magoun’s Saloon on Saturday, offering German beer (Paulaner) along with the above German street food. Nothing better than road-kraut.

Watching Pro Squash at Symphony Hall
SQUASHED NOTES

Watching Pro Squash at Symphony Hall

Here’s something different: the four “World No. 1s” in squash from England and Egypt will square off on a big box court dropped in the middle of Symphony Hall, for one day only. They each play twice, with shootout tiebreakers. Think of it like 3D Wii tennis. Where tubas usually are.

Sep 15, 7pm, $25-$3,000, Symphony Hall, 301 Massachusetts Ave, 617-266-1492, tickets here

Tuesday
Exploring East Somerville with Food
WAGONS EAST

Exploring East Somerville with Food

A-plan for tasting the cuisine of Ethiopia, El Salvador and Haiti: go to those places. B-plan: roll with local foodies through the 12 East Somerville restaurants on Broadway for some ethnic nom-noms from Taco Loco, Vinny’s and Maya Sol. Tip: skip the 3pm Pop-Tarts if going.

Sep 18, 6-9:30pm, $20, 0-200 Broadway, Somerville, tickets here

Wednesday
Rabbit Stew and Belgian Beers, Midweek
BELG-YUM

Rabbit Stew and Belgian Beers, Midweek

Bad news: your chef is taking a holiday. Good news: awaiting you at the Rattlesnake on Wednesday are five courses paired with five fitting Belgian beers, like Steenbrugge Dubbel Beer Black Pepper Wild Boar Bacon Cheese Fondue paired with Kriek. Yes, that’s just one.
