Things to do for October 25, 2012
Bloodsuckers, Battleship and Cornbread
The weekend carves one sexy pumpkin.
Cornbread and a Live Band at Church
Knowing your undying love for classic Southern diner cuisine, please note: in a little over two weeks, Church is throwing a one-night “meat and three”–style dinner (cast-iron cornbread, Nashville hot fried chicken, collard greens), followed by live blues/rock courtesy of a Worcester-based band. Worcester. The Deep South. Same thing.
$4 Pickled Eggs and Sliders on Boylston
More good news: for four bucks, you can now access bar bites at Sel de la Terre in the Back Bay. Think: saffron pickled eggs, sliders and even sausage and polenta plates with tomato sauce, for two hours after work. And then after 10pm, too. Near-midnight sausage consumption. Always smart.
Umbria Prime + Raw Bar = Oh Yes
Or if you’re looking to increase your rabid intake of daily-sourced local oysters, clams, lobster and crab, your new port has arrived. Umbria Prime has just unveiled a raw bar, available daily and located in the middle of the dining room. Should be easy to spot: it’s the thing with the shellfish.
Nosferatu, Now with Live Score
Being so close to Halloween, you’ve probably got two things in mind: vampire movies and Springfield. Okay, maybe not the second one, but on Saturday, you’ll head there for a special screening of the granddaddy of them all, Nosferatu, featuring an original live score. Twilight fans: just don’t.
Playing Battleship in Inman Square
Battleship. Monopoly. Sorry! No, not highlights from the last presidential debate, but a sampling of the board games on hand for Parlor Sports’ new fun night happening every Tuesday. While buying Park Place, you can also land $1 bites like onion rings and fries. Sadly, you can’t pay with the play money.
