Things to do for January 03, 2014

The Weekender

Biscuits, Gravy and Peter O’Toole. And Boots.

A state of weekend has been declared.

Friday
Boston Has Snow. Here’s a Boot Sale.
BOOT POINT

Boston Has Snow. Here’s a Boot Sale.

Turns out, that white stuff outside is hard to walk in. Luckily, Ball and Buck has an arsenal of near-indestructible boots like Red Wing Iron Rangers and Danner Lights. Which has you thinking: “It would be great if those boots were suddenly up to 30% off.” Right. That.

A Beer-Heavy Comeback in the Back Bay

There’s an old story about a pub named Crossroads. According to legend, the pub closed in April, never to return again. But in the middle of a blizzard it suddenly returned, rewarding the faithful with frothy drafts of ale. Moral: you can get a beer there again. Okay, bye.

Saturday
Just a Greenhouse Full of Pancakes
FUNNY FARM

Just a Greenhouse Full of Pancakes

Let’s be honest. If you could magically be anywhere right now, it would be in a heated greenhouse full of pancakes. Oh, look, this Concord farm is inviting you to come and experience exactly that. Because they’re having a pancake breakfast. Which gives you an idea for a pancake farm.

Jan 4, 9am-noon, $7.50, Verrill Farm, 11 Wheeler Rd, Concord, 978-369-4494

Sunday
Biscuits, Gravy and Soul Music
SOUL IN ONE

Biscuits, Gravy and Soul Music

Tres Gatos is throwing a brunchtime listening party for the new Sharon Jones album. They’re bringing biscuits, gravy and a little blood-orange-and-rum number called the Daptonic. We believe that’s called “Easy Listening.”

Jan 5, 10am-3pm, Tres Gatos, 470 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, reserve at 617-477-4851

Tuesday
Peter O’Toole. A Lot of Him.
’TOOLE TIME

Peter O’Toole. A Lot of Him.

Lawrence of Arabia. Mr. Chips. Lord Jim. We lost a lot of men when we lost Peter O’Toole. Luckily, he was a movie star, so you can find him all next week at the Brattle’s film festival tribute. There goes next week.
