Things to do for November 23, 2012

The Weekender

Paul Newman, Vintage Vinyl and Whole Hogs

The weekend pardoned no turkeys.

Friday
Handsome Turntables and Vintage Vinyl
TRES AWESOME

Handsome Turntables and Vintage Vinyl

Best way to spend your Black Friday: staying home and napping. Second-best way: heading to Tres Gatos, who are knocking 10% off all used vinyl and will have a limited number of Crosley turntables in stock. It’s okay to shop for yourself.

Nov 23, noon-11pm, Tres Gatos, 470 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, 617-477-9209

Grass Fed: Now Delivering in JP
MEAT UP

Grass Fed: Now Delivering in JP

Good news, JP-ers: after you’ve spent the day embracing the retail deals and steals around town, you can kick your shoes off at home and get the meat-tastic deliciousness found at Grass Fed, now delivering via bicycle. Which means your New Year’s wish from last year just came true. About time...

Now delivering by bike, 11am-11pm, Grass Fed, 605 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, 617-553-2278

Saturday
Doubling Up on Paul Newman
SLAP HAPPY

Doubling Up on Paul Newman

If the NHL lockout has you down, you could create your own hockey league and see where that goes. Or you could perk up by watching classic hockey flicks. Like, say, Slap Shot, screening at the Brattle on Saturday as part of a Paul Newman double feature. Paul Newman makes everything better.

Monday
French Flapjack-ing near Fenway
AW, CREPE

French Flapjack-ing near Fenway

This just in from our crepes bureau chief: Fenway’s restaurant row is getting a cheery new 16-seat gourmet coffee shop and crepe-slinger. And fortunately, it’ll land just in time for the holidays. Because if anything helps you weather the shopping storm of December, it’s savory, delicate French pancakes.

Whole-Pig Mondays in Davis Square
HOG HEAVEN

Whole-Pig Mondays in Davis Square

Normally, setting up a snout-to-tail pig dinner takes work. But now that Pizzeria Posto has begun regularly queuing up Vermont sows for stuffing, marinating and roasting in their custom wood-burning oven, all you need to do is reserve a seat on Mondays. May not want to go solo on this one.

Monday nights, $39-$59, Pizzeria Posto, 187 Elm St, Somerville, reserve at 617-625-0600
