The Weekender

Endless BBQ, Handsome Knives and Art

The weekend shucks early and often.

Thursday
Your New Oyster-Slaying Weapon
JACK KNIFE

Your New Oyster-Slaying Weapon

You’re picky about your oyster-shucking tools. Which is smart. And which is why you’ll like one of Sir Jack’s beautiful new Edisto oyster knives, made with black cherry burl wood. Bonus: it comes with a beltable leather sheath, which will add nice authenticity to your Oysterman superhero costume.

Bag Lunch = Pulled Pork in Kendall

Bag Lunch = Pulled Pork in Kendall

Pulled pork at lunch. The dent it makes in your afternoon work output: massive. But it’s worth it. Which is why you’ll want to get to Hungry Mother, who’s offering North Carolina–style BBQ pulled-pork sandwiches for takeout. But only on Fridays. Monday through Wednesday will figure themselves out.

Fridays, 11:30am-1pm, Hungry Mother, 233 Cardinal Medeiros Ave, Cambridge, 617-499-0090

Friday
Surf Movies and Guitar Stylings
SURF’S UP

Surf Movies and Guitar Stylings

Surfing. It’s back on the brain. And Arlington happens to be ground zero for a night of cinematic wave-riding with the East Coast premiere of the Australian surfing film Immersion, about the history and science of the sport, accompanied by live music. Think: surf guitar meets Sergio Leone film scores. Exactly.

Sunday
Six Artists. Six Chefs. You Win.
CREATION-ISTS

Six Artists. Six Chefs. You Win.

Usually when worlds collide, it’s trouble (especially when it’s literal). However, Sunday finds culinary muscle from the likes of Tavern Road, Asta and B&G Oysters being matched with local visual artists for a three-hour exhibit-slash-nosh-fest. There’ll be original works of art and special dishes to match. And beer. Definitely beer.

Live Reggae. Endless BBQ. Sunday.
CAN-DO

Live Reggae. Endless BBQ. Sunday.

Mija Cantina is throwing itself an all-you-can-eat pig roast for turning two years old (much more satisfying than hiring clowns). Involved: swine from a Norfolk farm, fresh jalapeño-bacon cornbread, watermelon-lobster-arugula salad and $4 margaritas. Oh, and live reggae, which always settles the stomach.
