To guarantee you look sharp this summer: 50 extra bucks at Lyonstate, where you can pick up handsomeness from A.P.C., Herschel and others. Also: 33% off top-notch grooming essentials (Baxter shaving creams, Kiehl’s hair gels...) and 25% off this game-changing device that turns any hard surface into a speaker. Your summer playlist deserves it.
Things to do for May 23, 2013
Endless Tacos, White Pants and Rocking Out
The weekend is making a guitar face of pure joy.
Grazing the Fruits of Faneuil Hall
A three-hour effervescent slice of Faneuil Hall can be found at Ned Devine’s tonight. Involved: sampling the wares from local spots (Mija Cantina, Sterling’s) and local brewers (Cisco, Smuttynose). Also: deciding if you want to pay attention to the live band or the Bruins game being broadcast. We say both.
Should you already be in nautical-y attire (Nantucket Reds, dock shoes, anything with anchors on it), you can just skip over to Nix’s Mate. They’re celebrating Figawi with special cocktails (blueberry-mint liqueur, lemon, soda), a live DJ and complete acceptance of anyone wearing white pants.
And if all that sailing stuff conjures up thoughts of what life must be like in the life-endangering commercial fishing game, wonder no more. The world premiere of the already critically acclaimed documentary Leviathan happens tomorrow at the Brattle. Perfect Storm Clooney will be there in spirit.
VIP-ing at a Huge Music Fest
Boston Calling is this weekend. But if you just said “Oh yeah” in your head, you can still hit the neo-Coachella of the east with a private bar and restrooms (huge at these things), a separate entrance and access to the special lounge for fellow VIP-ers. Yes, you get a poster, too.
All-You-Can-Eat Tacos. Yes.
Memorial Day. It’s what you’ve been barbecuing for. But if come Monday you’ve grilled yourself out (hey, it happens), know that for seven bucks you can destroy all the beef and chicken tacos you can handle at Lolita all night long. We’ll say that again: seven bucks for endless tacos.
