Things to do for February 28, 2013

The Weekender

Ramen, Danish Sweaters and Late-Night Eggs

Moving forward, the weekend will be known as weekend emeritus.

Thursday
A Tiny Window for Ramen at Backbar
POWER OF RA-MEN

A Tiny Window for Ramen at Backbar

Two hours. You now have a two-hour ramen window every day at Backbar. Awaiting you there: a steaming bowl of their housemade daily noodles in a pork-and-duck stock, with pork belly and bamboo shoots. But there’s only about 10 orders available per day, so, you know. Chop-chop.

Daily except Tuesdays, 4-6pm, $12, Backbar, 9 Sandborn Ct, Somerville, 617-718-0249

Friday
A New Banh Mi Enclave Rises
LUNCHABLES

A New Banh Mi Enclave Rises

And while we’re on the topic of Asian deliciousness, your downtown Vietnamese lunch options just increased by one with the opening of Sa Pa. This is your new place to stock up on banh mi sandwiches and authentic pho noodle dishes during the day. No workday should be without pho.

Now open Mon-Fri, 11am-3pm, Sa Pa, 92 Bedford St

Mexican Breakfast on Friday Night
HASH IT OUT

Mexican Breakfast on Friday Night

Fast-forward to tomorrow night. You’ve just seen your ex at a bar you were sure would be safe ground. Making it all better: Rosa Mexicano’s new late-night Mexican breakfast menu. Think: fried eggs, nopales con huevos, breakfast tamales and carnitas hash. Mexican breakfast sounds very similar to yours.

Fri-Sat, after 10pm, Rosa Mexicano, 155 Seaport Blvd, 617-476-6122

Cambridge Art Born from Funk
GET FUNKY

Cambridge Art Born from Funk

Also on Friday: South End gallery Galatea is kicking off its new exhibit of 18 paintings from a Cambridge artist who created the works while listening to funk like Earth, Wind & Fire. You can enjoy some gratis wine and cheese, too. The perfect complement to bass-line-driven art.

Saturday
30% to 70% Off at Uncle Pete’s
SALE-ING

30% to 70% Off at Uncle Pete’s

And should you be keeping an eye out for end-of-season winter gear, good news. Uncle Pete’s is offering 30% to 70% off their winter stock till it’s gone. Think: Denmark-made sweaters and flannels from Norse Projects, denim from Prps and Red Wing boots. Can’t go wrong with more boot options right now.

Ongoing until stock runs out, Uncle Pete’s, 119 Charles St, 617-391-0895
