The Weekender

A Weekend with Naughty-List Potential

The weekend is making snowmen out of wine corks.

In Case You Need a New Peacoat

The good news: it hasn’t snowed or gotten very cold yet. The bad news: it will. So if you need a few outerwear additions, hit Ted Baker for 50% off everything from roll-neck sweaters to peacoats to four-button waistcoats. It’s never a bad time for a zippy waistcoat.

Available until stock runs out, Ted Baker, 201 Newbury St #3, 617-450-8339

A Holiday Bash. With Free Koozies.
CRIMMINY

A Holiday Bash. With Free Koozies.

Holiday parties are in full swing, and your calendar is packed. Should Friday have a vacancy, though, know that Church is throwing a “Crimmas” bash. Which apparently is some Kringle-ian phrase translating to live bands (think: electronica, funk), free gifts (koozies, T-shirts) and $3 tallboys. Santa loves the funk.

Friday
A Night of Mayan Lore. And Bingo.
MY OH MY

A Night of Mayan Lore. And Bingo.

Your Mayan doomsday plans: none (it’s silly, really). Still, you can head to the Painted Burro for special Mayan-themed deliciousness (see: Apolocalypto Tacos with short rib and housemade chorizo), Mexican bingo and a confession box for anonymously airing your sins in little notes. Luckily, they won’t be read aloud...

Dec 21, 5pm-1am, Painted Burro, 219 Elm St, Somerville, reserve at 617-776-0005

A BYOB Party with a Demon Santa
ARTSY

A BYOB Party with a Demon Santa

Then again, you could just make it to the Out of the Blue Art Gallery, where they’re hosting a BYOB soiree, replete with live music, art, a backyard fire pit, roasted marshmallows and even a puppet show based on Krampus, the evil German Santa. Note: we like our Santa better.

So, a Food Truck Drives into District...

In non-end-of-the-world news, beloved food truck Staff Meal is moving into District for a two-night pop-up this weekend with a special menu complete with Peking pig head for two, beef tongue burgers and stuffed sardines. It should help you get a start on your “eat more sardines” resolution for 2013.
