Things to do for June 06, 2013

The Weekender

Endless Porchetta, Tarantino Flicks and Dozens of Food Trucks

The weekend is sitting on the dock of the bay, too.

Thursday
$2 Oyster-ing with Professionals
SHUCKS TO BE YOU

$2 Oyster-ing with Professionals

Chances are good that you’re not flanked by mollusks right now. Bummer. But if you head to Battery Park tonight, that’ll change via the Island Creek Oyster people shucking bivalves from their ice-filled boat on the patio for two bucks each. Pro-shucked oysters are the best oysters.

Thursdays starting Jun 6, 6-9pm, Battery Park, 33 Batterymarch St, 617-350-7275

You. Tarantino Films. Joy.
DEEP RESERVOIR

You. Tarantino Films. Joy.

Tarantino films are like sandwiches. Always... great. Anyway, head to the Brattle where you’ve got through next week to catch screenings of all his films and the classics that inspired them. Think 1974’s Foxy Brown for Jackie Brown. No, Hudson Hawk had nothing in common with Pulp Fiction. Besides Bruce.

Saturday
You Have Six Hours to Food Truck
FEAST TO EXIST

You Have Six Hours to Food Truck

The first-ever Cambridge food truck festival is coming to Kendall Square this weekend. In attendance: about 20 representations of the breed (A4, Bon Me, Fugu...) for your consuming pleasure. You’ve got six hours. Do with them what you will. But mostly eat food during them.

Last Call for An Tua Nua Rowdiness
KEN-NO-MORE

Last Call for An Tua Nua Rowdiness

If last Sunday’s Game of Thrones is our teacher, all things come to an end. Even go-to Kenmore Square staples like An Tua Nua. And sadly, this Saturday is your last night to head in for a farewell pint before they permanently close up shop after a 15-year run. Expect hugging.

Closes for good Jun 8, An Tua Nua, 835 Beacon St, 617-262-2121

Sunday
Endless Porchetta with the Celtics’ DJ
PATI-OH

Endless Porchetta with the Celtics’ DJ

Sundays. They tend to remind you of... Mondays. Well, Tico is about to help you out with that. Because this Sunday, they’re throwing a Celtics’-DJ-helmed BBQ on their Back Bay patio, where $20 gets you all-you-can-eat porchetta and beer tastings from Harpoon. Just like Sundays on the homestead.

Jun 9, 2-8pm, $20 at door, Tico, 222 Berkeley St, 617-351-0400
