Things to do for October 04, 2012

The Weekender

Free Tacos, Pre-Halloween Burlesque and WWII

The weekend would like to go off the record this weekend.

Thursday
Your Coffee Table Needs This
PERK ALERT

Your Coffee Table Needs This

This week, we’re hooking you up with a handsome box of inspiration from Phaidon, filled with iconic graphic designs—for 30% off. Display it on your Brooklyn-made coffee table from Yorkwood, who’re taking 25% off their entire line just for Perks members. Lastly, enjoy a bottle of rare scotch from seven legendary distilleries. You’ve earned it...

Mostly Free Tacos from a Truck
TAC-OH

Mostly Free Tacos from a Truck

Important lunch-related news: all day today, if you make a pit stop at mobile tortilla-slinging outfit the Taco Truck, you have the opportunity to land two free tacos for every $5 you spend with them for National Taco Day. Provided you say “Feliz Día del Taco” while ordering. Seriously.

Saturday
Eating Brunch in a Record Store
TRES GOOD

Eating Brunch in a Record Store

ATTN: Jamaica Plain’s über-cool bookstore/record shop/authentic Spanish tapas house is now doing brunch. Translation: Meow-Mosas (cava, OJ), chickpea pancakes and crispy serrano ham will easily fuel a few impulse first-pressing vinyl album buys. One of the many strange effects ham has on you.

Two Days of Beer-ing at Mohegan
SUN BREW

Two Days of Beer-ing at Mohegan

Or if you’re more of a “wake up, hit the craps table and then drink” weekend person, know that Mohegan Sun is holding its first-ever brew fest over three sessions this weekend. Think: more than 100 micro and limited-edition brews, and even some live demonstrations. No, funneling won’t be one of them.

October-ing with Burlesque
FLESH MOOD

October-ing with Burlesque

In case you just can’t contain your holiday spirit and need an early Halloween fix this weekend, we got you. Hit the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Saturday night. Awaiting you: a smorgasbord of film (Re-Animator), live music and even badass burlesque. H.P. Lovecraft and burlesque set to Motörhead. Ah, October.

Sunday
Watching Vintage WWII Battles
DOGFIGHT

Watching Vintage WWII Battles

Meanwhile out in Stow, Sunday is your last chance in the world to catch actual vintage bombers and fighter planes reenacting WWII dogfights in the very aircrafts involved. You’ll watch classic planes like the PT-17 Stearman do barrel rolls and evasive maneuvers from actual fights. Next up: reenactments of your schoolyard fisticuffs.
