Things to do for August 29, 2013
Racing a Schooner with an Open Bar. Nice Weekend You’ve Got There.
The weekend can fly higher than an eagle.
Today in Lunches Involving Turtles
It’s not weird. Unexpected cravings for authentic Cantonese clay-pot rice dishes with chicken, bacon, frog and turtle in them happen. Especially at lunch. Good news: it’s all at Clay Pot Café, which just replaced Kung Fu Garden in Chinatown. When you want frog, you want frog.
If You Must Get Some Exercise...
This weekend, you go hard. Black lights. Hip-hop. Dubstep. Sweat. Glow-in-the-dark tank tops. And that’s just this Glo-Cycle spin class at the Handle Bar. Yeah, spin class. We said it. This one’s got a DJ and it’s all weird, so we assume that makes it okay.
Old typewriters. There’s something just kind of... great about them. Maybe it’s because Hemingway, Orson Welles and Tennessee Williams used them. Maybe it’s because there’s about to be a new exhibit full of vintage ones at Northeastern Gallery 360. Either way: typewriters. Now you know where to find some of those.
Just Seven Hours Racing Huge Boats
If spending seven hours on an 80-foot schooner racing 20 other boats off the coast of Gloucester with box lunches and a cash bar is something you might be interested in, we have some terrible news for you. Just kidding, here you go.
And When the Dust Settles, Eat This
Hey, it’s an Asian pop-up. Those are great. Especially when they’re this one. The Hawthorne is hosting a four-course seating Monday night, which lets you sample the wares of local chefs from the likes of Guchi’s Midnight Ramen, Tavern Road and Sichuan Garden. Classic Labor Day.
