Things to do for September 20, 2012
Eating Kahuna Burgers in Southie, a Huge Sale at Ball and Buck, and More
The search is over. The weekend was right before your eyes.
Now Open: Tasty Burger Southie
For Southie-ers, there’s been one problem with Tasty Burger since it opened: to land their Pulp Fiction–inspired Kahuna Burger, you had to go to Fenway. No more, now that they’ve just opened a takeout garrison on L Street. Those Carson Beach walks just got way more awesome.
The Theatre District’s New Lunch Go-To
Ever since Sip Wine Bar opened in the Theatre District, you’ve said two things: “Mmm... wine” and “I wish they were open for lunch.” And just like that, now they are. Which means it’s now possible to get midday miso-glazed salmon and mushroom flatbreads. Mushrooms = fiery conference calls.
Up to 70% Off at Ball and Buck
This is historic: Ball and Buck is holding their first massive sale and slashing 30% to 70% off everything in store, from denim to long underwear. The reason: they’re closing the North End locale and full-timing it in the Back Bay. Try not to cry at the checkout counter.
Tasting Over 170 Whiskies
A good Saturday: sampling a few glasses of your favorite whisky. A better Saturday: sampling over 170 of them at Whisky Live, the UK/Japanese event gracing Boston for the first time. There’ll be big guys like Glenmorangie and Ardbeg, some smaller American cousins and even live Scottish music. Kilts optional.
Dinner and a Movie. And a Castle.
So here’s the deal: you’ll go to this out-of-sequence four-course dinner at Alden Castle, the first public event ever held there. Then the following Thursday, you’ll go see the new time-travel movie Looper on Boston Common. Think of it as dinner and a movie. Over four days. With Bruce Willis.
De-Monday-ing with Bourbon and BBQ
Also on Monday: there’s a five-course bourbon and BBQ dinner happening at Brix Wine Shop, featuring five Hudson Whiskey spirits (Baby Bourbon, corn whiskey, rye, etc.) paired with pulled pork on cheddar biscuits and hickory-smoked Black Angus tri-tip sandwiches. BBQ or Bruce Willis. Tough call.
