Things to do for December 13, 2012

The Weekender

Mobile Crepes, Ugly Sweaters and Japanese Art

The weekend’s blood type has officially changed to “candy cane.”

Thursday
Performance Menswear and T-Shirt Quilts
POP STAR

Performance Menswear and T-Shirt Quilts

For that drawer filled with old T-shirts, here: Holiday 2.0. It’s a Back Bay pop-up showcasing local e-commerce successes, like high-tech performance menswear maestros Ministry of Supply, and Project Repat, which takes your old tees and makes them into smashing quilts and totes. A good tote is always welcomed.

Through Dec 22, 10am-7pm, Holiday 2.0, 115 Newbury St, 3rd Fl, 617-314-5998

Mobile Crepes = Good
TRUCKIN’

Mobile Crepes = Good

Meanwhile, some breaking news on the French flapjack front: the Benny’s Crepe Cafe food truck is now in Boston. Thus, you can now plan your day around where to land smoked salmon, BLT and caramel apple crepes for breakfast. They also have pork stew. Which is also great for breakfast.

Friday
Beer and Toys-as-Art Downtown
ARTSY

Beer and Toys-as-Art Downtown

If you’ve been meaning to get downtown to the Lot F Gallery for one of their spirited art parties, look to their DJ’d opening-night party on Friday. Besides serving gratis beer and wine, they’ll be showcasing the paintings, sculptures and modified Japanese toys from local artists. Toys make the best art.

Dec 14, 7-11pm, no cost, Lot F Gallery, 145 Pearl St #4, 617-426-1021

Monday
A Devilish Classic. With a Choir.
NICE SCORE

A Devilish Classic. With a Choir.

Something about the devil is just so... engrossing. So on Monday, catch a screening of the original Faust, accompanied by a group of Berklee musicians performing a new live score. Anything involving a 24-member vocal choir and a cinematic masterpiece from the director of Nosferatu is never a bad time.

Don’t Pack Up That Ugly Sweater Yet...
UGLY AGAIN

Don’t Pack Up That Ugly Sweater Yet...

Alert: your next opportunity to sport what has been called (by you) “the most hideous pullover since Cosby” is here. Wear it to Blue Inc. on Monday, where a cash prize to the ugliest sweater is waiting, along with an ice luge and all-’90s tunes. Here’s hoping for some Gin Blossoms.

Dec 17, 9pm-2am, no cover, cash bar, Blue Inc., 131 Broad St, 617-261-5353
