Things to do for August 08, 2013

The Weekender

Belly Dancers, Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches and Lumberjack Battles

O Weekend, Weekend. Wherefore art thou Weekend?

Thursday
You Just Got a Downtown Papagãyo
SCHOOL OF GUAC

You Just Got a Downtown Papagãyo

A surplus of midday tacos and margaritas downtown. That’s something that doesn’t really have a downside to it. Neither does the fact that Max & Dylans in DTX just morphed into a shiny new Papagãyo. Made-to-order guacamole. Eighty tequilas. It’s all happening there. You may proceed.

Friday
Observing Lumberjacks in Battle
WOOD MORNING AMERICA

Observing Lumberjacks in Battle

Weekend road trips tend to be super. But you need a reason. Ah, here we go... lumberjacks. Lumberjacks are your reason. They’ll be chainsawing things and competing against each other in ways they probably shouldn’t. Bonus: pig races and a demolition derby. Maybe don’t wear an ascot.

Aug 9-11, 9am-9pm, $10, Bolton Fair, 318 Seven Bridge Rd, Lancaster, 978-365-7206

Saturday
Not That You Ever Get Hangovers...
BACK TO LIFE

Not That You Ever Get Hangovers...

There are mornings. And then there are mornings-after. Local 149 would like to address the latter with their new Recovery Plan menu. It’s got things like carafes of Gatorade with Bantam cider. And something called the Lobster MacMuffin with bourbon bacon and lobster knuckle meat. Happy putting-those-in-your-mouth.

Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches
CIRCLE OF LIFE

Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches

The post-brunch donut craving. It’s real. And it’s really real when Union Square Donuts creates a donut ice cream sandwich consisting of Toscanini’s vanilla ice cream, chocolate and caramel. And donuts. You can stop looking at us now.

Midriffs. Fire Juggling. Brazil.
BEST STREET IN THE HOUSE

Midriffs. Fire Juggling. Brazil.

And speaking of Union Square, that’s where all the belly dancers, fire jugglers and Brazilian BBQ will be this weekend. It’s this street food festival thing they’re doing. They’ll even have an eight-foot tiger head there. It’s been ages since you’ve seen a good eight-foot tiger head.

Aug 10, 6-10pm, Union Square Plaza, 90 Union Square, Somerville, more info here
