Things to do for December 12, 2013

The Weekender

The Bruins Ice Girls, All-Day Brunch and Eating Like Buddy the Elf

The weekend never drops below freezing.

Thursday
Just a Big Win for Lunch
BEAT SMARTS

Just a Big Win for Lunch

Beat Hotel has unveiled a crazy new thing called “lunch.” And get this—it’s a meal between breakfast and dinner. Okay, so they didn’t come up with that part. But serving French-dip pork sandwiches and pulled-lamb nachos in the afternoon isn’t a bad idea. Not bad at all.

Friday
Italian Body Splendor at Louis Boston
KITON AND CABOODLE

Italian Body Splendor at Louis Boston

Things to know about Kiton:
1) They’re master suit tailors from Naples.
2) They made Clooney’s suit from Ocean’s Thirteen.
3) They’ll be on hand tomorrow at Louis Boston to take your measurements.
Maybe bring someone who owes you a present.

Saturday
Grab Your Ice Skates. Maybe a Date.
HAVE AN ICE DAY

Grab Your Ice Skates. Maybe a Date.

The Boston Harbor Hotel is debuting an ice-skating rink under its rotunda this Saturday. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s free to enter, has a bar and involves a performance by the Boston Bruins Ice Girls. So, pretty much ideal ice-skating conditions.

Sunday
Incoming: Nine Hours of Brunch
ON YOUR MARKY MARK

Incoming: Nine Hours of Brunch

Commonwealth now has brunch. It lasts nine hours. Because you’re not going anywhere fast after chicken-fat biscuits and apple-pie-jam donut holes. And it’s called “Marky Mark & the Funky Brunch.” Just don’t call it “Matt Damon.”

Tuesday
Dinner, Courtesy of Buddy the Elf
BUDDY SYSTEM

Dinner, Courtesy of Buddy the Elf

Reel Chefs, that tasting-menu-and-a-movie thing at Theatre 1, is taking on a classic of culinary cinema: Elf. Yes, there will be Buddy’s famous pasta dish in the form of spaghetti with maple-syrup-cured bacon. And yes, they’ll have the World’s Best Cup of Coffee. They did it.
