This week, you’re stocking up on wearable handsomeness from Kent Wang’s online haberdashery (where you’ve got an extra $50 for polos, cufflinks and more). Also: 30% off incredibly tough jackets from Nau and 40% off a new pair of winter shades. ’Cause squinting never looks good...
Things to do for December 06, 2012
It's the Weekend. Freak Out.
The weekend flies higher than an eagle.
A 40-Ounce Dare from JM Curley
Unhinged gluttony alert: JM Curley has thrown down the gauntlet with a new challenge to consume 40 ounces of cheeseburgers stacked high, 40 ounces of shoestring fries and a 40-ounce of malt liquor in 40 minutes. If you do: bragging rights and a comped meal. If you don’t: you’re human.
New Pasta-ing in Cambridge
On the other side of the river, a new enclave of pasta has just opened courtesy of a Via Matta alum. Awaiting you there: all-Italian wines. Heaping plates of peppercorn-and-cheese-laden orecchiette pasta. And extensive lentil-ing via the owner’s Italian lentil-farming family. With lentils, you want experts.
Watching the Doors’ Guitarist Play Jazz
If your iPod is rife with the Doors, Frank Zappa, War or even jazz, get ready for a treat. Doors guitarist Robby Krieger is playing jazz in Somerville tomorrow with ex-Zappa and ex-War musicians. Next up: the ghost of Miles Davis playing “Light My Fire” on trumpet.
It’s Ugly-Sweater Time...
And if you’re looking for your first ugly-sweater party this season (or just a party), head to Somerville’s Daddy Jones Bar on Monday. Besides spiked eggnog and $50 gift cards for the most repulsive Cosby sweaters, there’ll also be a photo booth. Careful: pictures can haunt.
