Things to do for February 14, 2013
Blindfolds, MacGyver and Sledding
The weekend is still haunted by Biden’s zombie eye.
Eating Blind in a Victorian Brownstone
When you’re consuming food, your eyes are extremely helpful. Learn why by sitting down to a blindfolded four-course meal in a Victorian brownstone. Each dish is narrated to you and your date as you listen to music and use your hands to find your fork. Blindfolds. Hands. Valentine’s Day.
Perfect sledding conditions out there. As such, know that there’s a cardboard-sled race happening at a giant tubing hill in New Hampshire. Using nothing but cardboard and tape, you’ll build, decorate and register your chariot, then compete for prizes for fastest run and construction ingenuity. You got this.
You’ve seen a lot of the Academy Award nominees for Best Picture. Which left you little time for the live-action, animated and documentary shorts up for Oscars this year. Luckily, the ICA is screening them all from now until St. Paddy’s Day. These should do well with the ADHD set.
Nonstop <em>MacGyver</em> in Somerville
Daddy Jones is now all-out MacGyver on Monday nights. Think: nonstop episodes playing on their TVs, MacGyver-esque cocktails like screwdrivers served in hollowed-out orange peels, even liquor-y milkshakes garnished with paper clips and pieces of rope you get to keep. You know, just in case.
Hawaiian Fun in the South End
Meanwhile, in the South End: Tremont647 has decided to see Nemo’s snowy call and raise it a night of luau exuberance. You’ll sip Plantation-rum-loaded mai tais and devour a three-course family-style meal (read: whole roasted pig). Juggling flaming staffs afterward: your call.
