Things to do for October 03, 2013
Brunch with Fiddles, Fenway Boots and a Rooftop Oyster Party
The weekend is still open for business.
Congrats, You Just Won New England
Quick, imagine the most New England things possible. L.L.Bean boots. Fenway Park. L.L.Bean boots with waterproof uppers made from the rain delay tarp at Fenway Park. Only 50 pairs of those last things exist, and L.L.Bean is giving them away on Facebook. Typical boot-people move.
Tomorrow night, you’re going to grab a drink. And if you do it at Johnny D’s, you’re also going to witness the ancient Kalbelia dance from the Thar desert of Northern India, as performed by an elaborately costumed dancer and five musicians playing the songs of the Manganiar people. Just saying.
Your brunch plans usually involve some sort of eggs-and-mimosas situation. Fine. But now they involve Irish fiddles and drums. You’ll figure it all out at Lansdowne Pub’s first Sessions brunch, where the banana-and-chocolate-stuffed french toast and Bloodys come with a live soundtrack of Irish folk music. Fiddles.
Oysters. On a Rooftop. You Should Go.
It’s that time of year again. Leaves are falling. Fires are crackling. Legal Harborside is shucking fresh bushels of oysters for you on their third-story roof deck. Yep. It’s their Mollusk Mania thing again. Look for oyster sliders, pickled oysters and oyster sushi. The world is your... forget it.
Six Sausages Enter. One Leaves.
October sausage festivals should probably be more of a thing. Well, Brasserie 28’s first annual Oktoberfest Sausagefest is fixing that. You’ll sample sausages prepared by six local chefs like the Rattlesnake’s Brian Poe. Then pair them with eight Jack’s Abby lagers. Then vote for the best duo. Then... no, that’s it.
