The Weekender

Football and Snow Bunnies. The Weekend Loves You.

How ’bout this weekend vortex.

Thursday
Louis’s Winter Sale Is Fully Operational
KING LOUIS

Louis’s Winter Sale Is Fully Operational

Turns out, that polar vortex thing is still a thing. Luckily, Louis has activated their winter sale, with discounts of 30% on dapper provisions like Kiton shirts and Belvest suits. Which probably won’t make you much warmer. Definitely more handsome, though. Which still applies to vortexes.

Friday
Like Skiing, Only Drinking Instead
SKIS TO THE KINGDOM

Like Skiing, Only Drinking Instead

There’s a ski bash happening tomorrow night at Harp. It’s called Ski Bash. But it doesn’t involve actual skiing. Because it’s hard to ski when you’re drinking frosty pints of Long Trail and eating beer-marinated English muffin Shed Burgers. So you’ll just do that instead.

Jan 10, 9pm-2am, no cost before 10pm ($10 after), The Harp, 85 Causeway St, 617-742-1010, tickets here

Saturday
DooWee & Rice Is Back. With Football.
JUST DOO IT

DooWee & Rice Is Back. With Football.

Wanted: DooWee & Rice. Last seen at their now-closed Porter Square restaurant. But they’re rumored to be hiding out at Wonder Bar for Saturday’s playoff game, waiting to inflict pork bao and chili garlic wings on unsuspecting Pats fans. Better go bring them to justice.

Jan 11, 8:15pm, Wonder Bar, 186 Harvard Ave, Allston, 617-351-2665

Sunday
Family-Style Supping at the Ritz
MAKE MY SUNDAY

Family-Style Supping at the Ritz

You’re outside. It’s cold. You need shelter. And someone to pass you a platter of baked chicken and potato gratin. The Artisan Bistro at the Ritz feels the same way, which is why they’re starting a weekly series of family-style Sunday suppers. Just like home, if you lived in a Ritz.

Monday
The Schlowburger Strikes Back
SCHLOW JAMS

The Schlowburger Strikes Back

The Schlowburger: a wild burger known for its distinctive toppings of creamy horseradish and onion straws, thought to be extinct since Radius closed in June. But the Enoteca at Via Matta will have them in captivity for the next two weeks only. Presumably so you can make them extinct again.
