Things to do for May 23, 2013

The Weekender

Endless Tacos, White Pants and Rocking Out

The weekend is making a guitar face of pure joy.

Thursday
Grazing the Fruits of Faneuil Hall
FAN CLUB

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.

NAUT’ TONIGHT

A DJ and Nautical Attire Downtown

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.

May 23, 10pm-2am, cash bar, Nix’s Mate, 89 Broad St, 617-348-1234

Friday
You. And a Fishing Documentary.
BIG FISH

You. And a Fishing Documentary.

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.

Saturday
VIP-ing at a Huge Music Fest
GOOD CALL

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.

Monday
All-You-Can-Eat Tacos. Yes.
TAC-OH

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.
