This Weekend: Long Beards and Endless Meat
The weekend is Butterfinger’d out.
All-You-Can-Eat Brazilian Meat-ing
You’ve offered a lot of lip service to friends regarding your abilities for meat consumption. Well, Friday is your chance to prove it, when the endless tableside-nitrate purveyor Fogo de Chão opens in the Back Bay. Avoid heart attack chances by making at least one pass by the salad bar.
You’ve seen beards. You’ve seen competitions. Well, on Saturday you’ll see both at the full-tilt beard-off going down at the Armory in Somerville. What to expect: face-offs between full beards, freestyle mustaches, sideburns and even fake beards. Which means you’re eligible at least twice.
One Sandwich to Rule Them All
And after you’ve judged a few furry cheeks, you’ll want to head to Cambridge to land seats for the ’wich-off between Chez Henri, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese and All Star Sandwich Bar (it is National Sandwich Day). Involved: an appetizer, a dessert and sandwiches from each spot. No matter what, you win here.
Known fact: oysters are great. Another known fact: $1 oysters are even greater. And that’s exactly what’s available at the Lansdowne Pub’s oyster fest on Saturday afternoon behind Fenway, along with some live music from their stage, and even oyster shooters. No, that’s not the band’s name.
