By the power of Perks, you’re getting nearly 100 bucks off a seven-speed bicycle that folds up in 10 seconds flat. Not to mention some Tom Colicchio–approved Israeli caviar only available twice yearly, along with 20% off a Wired-magazine-approved wireless speaker. Let the “Dancing in September” playlists commence.
Things to do for September 05, 2013
Hair Bands, Vodka and Human Peacocks
The weekend looks at you and just knows.
Vodka and wallets call to mind... nothing. Well, that changes tonight at Uniform, by way of gratis vodka cocktails and local leather czars Planwork. They’ll be at the ready with all manner of handcrafted wallets and belts. Oh, and a lot of the stuff is 40% to 50% off. There, vodka and wallets.
There’s this film. The Harder They Come. It’s marvelous. Like Goodfellas by way of the Wailers. And you can catch it Friday in Arlington (that known Rasta-culture stronghold), along with a synchronistic accompaniment of live roots reggae. Expect a lot of songs from the soundtrack. Which... also marvelous.
This Saturday (and every Saturday in September), Somerville’s Taza Chocolate is letting pastry chefs from the likes of Harvest, Oleana and Hungry Mother create secret pastries with their house cocoa wares. Also on site: Coffee Trike. Basically, you’re about to eat a lot more chocolate and drink a lot more coffee.
Brunching ’80s-Style at Blue Inc.
Blue Inc. is having an ’80s brunch on Sunday. There’s not much more we can say about that. Except that a DJ will be spinning all manner of hair-band-ery and a bartender will be serving all manner of spiked toasted-marshmallow milkshakes. Doesn’t really scream ’80s, but you accept this.
Like Cambridge, but Way More Exotic
Thousands of people dressed like human peacocks. Now that’s something. Related: the Cambridge Carnival will swarm Kendall Square this weekend with street food, art vendors, live music and parades. We hear everybody loves those.
