Things to do for January 24, 2013

The Weekender

Endless Chili, John Cleese and Australia

The weekend is sleeping in a tauntaun tonight.

Thursday
Lots of Warm Clothing from Nau
NAU’S THE TIME

Lots of Warm Clothing from Nau

No need to state the obvious here, but we’ll do it anyway: it’s stupid cold out. So you’ll want to take advantage of the fact that you can land up to 75% off Nau’s down scarves, office-ready warm wear and Siberia-worthy puffy jackets using up-cycled coconut-stuff for insulation. Coconuts = warm.

Pop-up ends Jan 29, Nau, 328 Newbury St, 617-587-9828

Live Crab Races and Other Aussie Fun
DOWN UNDER

Live Crab Races and Other Aussie Fun

Enough cold stuff, let’s talk Australia (by way of Eastie). In honor of Australia Week, Aussie meat pie haven KO is offering up AC/DC trivia, special Down Under fare (think: a bucket of prawns), TV cricket matches and live crab races, starting today. That’s right. Live. Crab. Races. What’s up.

Friday
Eating Endless Wings: You’re Allowed
WING ME

Eating Endless Wings: You’re Allowed

We can see your thoughts. And we see chicken. Could be due to the $25 all-you-can-eat wing-off at Game On tomorrow. Local wing czars from spots like Cornwall’s Pub and Dillon’s will present their wares for you to devour and vote on, alongside former Patriots player Joe Andruzzi. NFL vets know their wings.

A Week of Monty Python. Let’s Rock.
FULL MONTY

A Week of Monty Python. Let’s Rock.

If your Michael Palin impression has gotten rusty, know that the Brattle Theatre’s Monty Python week kicks off tomorrow with a new documentary on the genius of founding member Graham Chapman (RIP), followed by classics like Holy Grail and The Meaning of Life through the week. Sick days, here you come.

Saturday
Consuming Endless Chili Behind Fenway
GETTIN’ CHILI

Consuming Endless Chili Behind Fenway

Okay, back to how to endure the cold: Church’s second annual chili fest is happening on Saturday. Your mission: take down endless cups of the stuff that seven Boston chili barons have concocted (Fenway Park, Sweet Cheeks, Jerry Remy’s) and vote on the winner. Tip: not first-date material. Or maybe it is.
