For Dad: 1) Exclusive, mantel-worthy leather baseballs, basketballs and footballs. 2) Vintage-style artwork of his favorite pastimes, framed and 50% off. 3) VIP tickets to Paul McCartney’s sold-out show at Fenway. Actually, this could all be for you, too...
Things to do for June 06, 2013
Lobster Rolls, Martinis and Kenneth Branagh
The weekend didn’t do it, nobody saw it do it, you can’t prove anything.
A New Pop-Up Involving Sandwiches
So Macchialina’s chef, Michael Pirolo, has just opened up a lunchtime sandwich shop for the summer. Which, nice. He’ll have stuff like lobster rolls, mortadella banh mi, waffle fries and, soon, a custom house ale from Wynwood’s Gravity Brewlab. Good hops come to those who wait.
Barbecued Bloody Marys. Now a Thing.
If you have even the slightest inclination toward eggs benedict and donuts (note: you do), this is what you’re doing on Saturday. Heading to Tongue & Cheek. They’re launching a weekend brunch menu. There’s fried clam rolls. Buckets of donut holes. And Barbecued Bloody Marys. You’ll take yours medium rare.
A jai alai match is a terrible thing to waste. Palo knows this. So they’re bringing their Afro-Cuban funk to the match for a live show. You should go. You know, grab a beer, place a bet, do some dancing. Not necessarily in that order.
Just an Afternoon with Kenneth Branagh
O Cinema’s screening The Magic Flute this Sunday, directed by one Sir Kenneth Branagh. Here’s a friendly suggestion: stick around after the credits. That’s because the knighted actor will be doing a live Q&A with the audience via webcast. Here’s another friendly suggestion: hold off on that second beer.
A Weeknight Martini Party Cometh
Bartenders. They make martinis. You drink martinis. So every Tuesday, a different local barkeep will be putting their creative twist on the classic at the new Martini Culture party at the Raleigh. Expect bar bites like deviled eggs and housemade jerky from Restaurant Michael Schwartz. Tuesday’s your dehydrated beef night anyway.
