Things to do for April 11, 2013
Chariots of Fire, Bacon Bread and Meatballs
The weekend is running the marathon via taxi this year. Much easier.
Gratis Bacon Buns in Harvard Square
Bread, in some small way, helps alleviate the burden of the human experience. And now that Harvest is sending out gratis small plates of classic French bacon buns on Thursdays, all brushed in butter and sugar, your after-work burdens will feel all the lighter. Bacon bread does that.
Meatballs and Beer. For the Sox.
The Boston Marathon is Monday. This calls for beer. And meatballs. Or both. By way of an order of Dante’s century-old-family-recipe meatballs and a pint of the marathon-themed, German-style Sam Adams brew, “26.2.” All for 10 bucks. Beer, meat and running. Perfect.
Coffee-Rum Marshmallow S’mores, Folks
Good news: The Book of Mormon is playing at the Boston Opera House. Which you can celebrate via Back Deck’s coffee-rum marshmallow, chocolate and housemade graham cracker dessert The Book of S’more-mon until the end of the month. And, you know, catch the show.
Oh, one more thing on the marathon (especially if you’re running): Daddy Jones is offering endless elbow pasta with various sauces for $10 on Sunday. Plus: they’ll be playing Chariots of Fire and Prefontaine on the TVs while a DJ spins cuts from the Rocky soundtrack. Try and not get pumped up.
Estelle’s: Now a Lunchtime Burger Joint
And if you’re not running, start getting (more) excited for lunch. South End favorite Estelle’s is commencing lunch service on Monday, heavy on the burger-joint-ness. Think: crispy catfish burgers, Cajun turkey burgers and their 100% beef and American cheese house burgers. And salads. For vitamins.
