Things to do for March 28, 2013
Skiing, Soccer WAGs and Infinite Oysters
The weekend is warming up the hot tub.
If it’s been a week or two since you got your fill of underground anything (say, at SXSW), good news: the Boston Underground Film Festival is going on now through Sunday at the Brattle. Expect a film about epic games of capture the flag, and even a horrible-yet-awesome classic called Samurai Cop. Exactly.
If the appearance of non-Siberian weather has you thinking of the slopes, head to Mount Sunapee on Saturday to get a little half-pipe time in while competing in the final RailJam of the season, where you’ll be judged for aerial acrobatics and technical abilities. Or, you know, just watch while drinking. Your pick.
Sausages and Endless Oysters for You
Speaking of pleasant weather, Deep Ellum is throwing a six-hour patio party to celebrate the coming deck season. A ticket gets you a grilled-sausage sandwich (Italian, German), three libations (IPAs, vintage beer from Deep Ellum’s cellar) and all-you-can-slurp Island Creek oysters. Nice one, Monday.
Pig Candy and Lamb Burgers on Tremont
Also on Monday: Andy Husbands of Tremont647 is whipping up sides, desserts and meat sandwiches from his new book, Wicked Good Burgers. Think: brat burgers and Lamb Juicy Lucy Burgers you’ll self-dress with tomato-ginger ketchup or his pig candy (i.e., Crown Royal maple bacon). The best kind of candy.
Soccer Players’ Wives. Modeling.
There’s a runway show at the Langham hotel on Wednesday, when six New England Revolution players, their wives and even some Revolution cheerleaders will brave catwalk conditions to model Ted Baker spring and summer looks for charity. This won’t be the first Wednesday involving hotels and cheerleaders for you.
