The Weekender

Bloodsuckers, Battleship and Cornbread

The weekend carves one sexy pumpkin.

Thursday
Cornbread and a Live Band at Church
SUP Y’ALL

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.

Tickets available now for Nov 12, 7pm-2am, $35, Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, 617-236-7600, tickets here

$4 Pickled Eggs and Sliders on Boylston
BAR EXAMINING

$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.

Mon-Fri, 5-7pm and after 10pm, Sel de la Terre, 774 Boylston St, 617-266-8800

Umbria Prime + Raw Bar = Oh Yes
CLAM UP

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.

Available now at Umbria Prime, 295 Franklin St, 617-338-1000

Saturday
Nosferatu, Now with Live Score
SUCKER

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.

Tuesday
Playing Battleship in Inman Square
PARLOR LIFE

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.

Tuesdays, 5pm-close, Parlor Sports, 1 Beacon St, Somerville, 617-576-0231
