Thursday
Forum’s Return 2.0: Lunch Edition
AFTERNOON DELIGHT

Forum’s Return 2.0: Lunch Edition

It will please you to hear that Forum’s comeback status has officially been upgraded to “with a vengeance.” Well, they just started daily lunch, anyway. Counts, though. Still counts. Crab fritters. Steak frites with truffle butter. Pancetta burgers. You know, lunch stuff. And if you don’t know... lunch stuff.

Friday
A Gathering of Ocean-y Wonderment
SEA DO

A Gathering of Ocean-y Wonderment

Picture spending your Friday night on the fish pier, flanked by local culinary wizards from the likes of Puritan, Tavern Road, Tarranta and West Bridge. Who will be whipping up over 20 different takes on classic Boston seafood. Also picture live jazz. This. You’re picturing this. Onward.

Sep 27, 6-10pm, $125, Exchange Conference Center, 212 Northern Ave, tickets here

Ribelle + Late-Night Pizza = Superb
CHOW BELLE

Ribelle + Late-Night Pizza = Superb

Let’s talk about where to eat after 11pm in Brookline. Hint: it’s at Ribelle, who’ve just decided to become something of a pizza and sub shop late into the night via meatball grinders and white clam pies. This should bode well for sleep.

Fri-Sat, 11pm-1am, Ribelle, 1665 Beacon St, Brookline, 617-232-2322

Saturday
Competitive Wine-and-Dessert Tasting
LA DOLCE VITA

Competitive Wine-and-Dessert Tasting

First rule of going on a date this Saturday night: have a date. Second: take said date to this competitive dessert-and-wine tasting featuring soon-to-be-revealed meal enders from Cinquecento, Area Four and Harvest. You can also dance. Because live bands will be there playing music. Because that’s what live bands do.

Sunday
You Deserve to See Flying Pumpkins
GOURD HAVE MERCY

You Deserve to See Flying Pumpkins

Sure, you could not head to Amesbury Sports Park on Sunday. You could not watch a bunch of weird people heaving massive pumpkins into a field using custom-built, medieval-looking catapults. You could do something else instead. But then you’d just be a person who’s bad at making decisions.
