The Weekender

New Lunch, New Brunch and Bartenders in a Boxing Ring

The once and future weekend.

Thursday
Barrio, Now with 100% More Lunch
BREAKING BARRIO

Barrio, Now with 100% More Lunch

Street tacos. Salsa. Margaritas. Barrio Cantina had it all. But not lunch. Well, now that’s changed. Yes, you can finally order the lunch of your Mexican dreams. Think crispy fish po’boys and Mexican turkey meatball subs and ghost chili margaritas. Mexican dreams are the best dreams.

Mon-Fri, 11:30am-5pm, Barrio Cantina, 1363 Boylston St, 857-753-4100

Saturday
Incoming: Lots of Leather and Vodka
WILL POWER

Incoming: Lots of Leather and Vodka

Will Leather Goods. They’re those Eugene, Oregon–based leathersmiths responsible for rugged weekenders and tote bags that look like they saw service in WWII. And turns out, they’re having a trunk show at Uniform with satchel discounts and vodka samples. Not necessarily in that order.

Oct 12, noon-5pm, Uniform, 511 Tremont St, 617-247-2360

Sunday
A Very Wet New Brunch at Stoddard’s
WAKE AND SAZERAC

A Very Wet New Brunch at Stoddard’s

Brunch is not a thing they do at Stoddard’s. But if they did, you always imagined it would involve things like poutine, beef tartare, morning Sazeracs and champagne mixed with stout beer. Oh, fine, they totally do that now. But only because that’s how you imagined it would be.

Monday
Competitive Bartending in a Boxing Ring
BAR SMACK

Competitive Bartending in a Boxing Ring

This Columbus Day, two bartenders will brawl in a boxing ring at Moksa in Cambridge. And by “brawl,” we mean compete to make cocktails with secret ingredients before a panel of judges. And by “boxing ring,” we mean... yeah, this happens in an actual boxing ring. Sometimes we’re literal.

Tuesday
This Birthday Party Has Wild Boar
LYNCH CONNECTION

This Birthday Party Has Wild Boar

On your 10th birthday, your mom brought a cake and put candles in it. On the Butcher Shop’s 10th birthday, Barbara Lynch will bring copious amounts of meat and cheese, followed by a seven-course meal with wild boar and Scottish game birds. Sorry, the Butcher Shop wins.
