Things to do for September 19, 2013

The Weekender

Go-Karts, Oktoberfest and a Whole Bunch of Brazil

The weekend isn’t scared of clowns.

Thursday
Bubbly and Brazilian Jazz at a Museum
BRAZIL OF THE HUNT

Bubbly and Brazilian Jazz at a Museum

When life calls for the alfresco sipping of champagne at a museum famous for a legendary heist, you answer that call. Then you attend a presentation about the history of Roxbury’s jazz legacy. Then a live concert with a Brazilian vocalist. Then have your date congratulate you on being all culture-y.

Saturday
You, Really Fast Go-Karts and Beer
PRIX-DOM

You, Really Fast Go-Karts and Beer

The seaport will be converted into an honest-to-goodness racetrack this weekend. And a party. So if watching teams of European F1-style go-karts street race for glory in the midst of a Narragansett beer tent with Shake Shack burgers is your thing... well, this is your thing.

Sep 21, noon-4pm, Seaport Blvd (between Northern Ave and Boston Wharf Rd)

Sunday
Brunching Like a Hawaiian in Somerville
PIG IN

Brunching Like a Hawaiian in Somerville

Last night, you dreamt. Of a brunch at Foundry on Elm. With endless luau-style roast suckling pig and Bully Boy rum cocktails. Firstly: that’s a pretty great dream. Secondly: it’s coming true this weekend. Thirdly: no, that’s it, actually.

Sep 22, noon, $20, Foundry on Elm, 255 Elm St, Somerville, reserve at 617-628-9999

Pretzels. Brats. Beer. Well, Okay.
OKTO BABY

Pretzels. Brats. Beer. Well, Okay.

Remember that time you went to an Oktoberfest party on the outdoor brick patio between Belly and the Blue Room in Kendall Square, where a ticket got you two German brews and all the wood-fired sausages, brats and pretzels you could eat? If so, this is just like that time.

Sep 22, 3:30-7:30pm, $35, Belly, 1 Kendall Sq, Cambridge, 617-494-0968, tickets here

Tuesday
Here’s a... Different Kind of Food Fight
FIGHT NIGHT

Here’s a... Different Kind of Food Fight

Food fights are fun. You know food fights. They’re where you throw food at each other. Unless it’s this one at Lincoln Tavern where you’re judging the chefs from West Bridge and Hungry Mother after they engage in a battle of Southeast Asian street food. Then they’re that.
