Things to do for February 13, 2014

The Weekender

Fried Chicken, Dueling Bartenders and Winter Gear

It was the weekend of our discontent.

Thursday
**Late-Night Fried-Chicken Alert**
BIG SARMA

**Late-Night Fried-Chicken Alert**

Sarma’s Turkish fried chicken: delicious. You know that. But lately you’ve been thinking it’d be even more delicious if you could have it after 11pm. Sarma recognized that, and swiftly launched a late-night bar menu with fritters and buñuelos. Oh, and that fried chicken. Obviously.

Sun-Thu, until 11pm; Fri-Sat, until midnight; Sarma, 249 Pearl St, Somerville, 617-764-4464

Valentine’s Day with Sault and Uniform
SALE-ING

Valentine’s Day with Sault and Uniform

Sault and Uniform are holding Valentine’s-y events just blocks from each other. Here’s your cheat sheet.

The Perks
Sault: Blood-orange-based cocktails; free Apotheker’s chocolate. Uniform: Vodka; 40% off fall and winter apparel.

The Special Offerings
Sault: Flowers. Uniform: Jack Black grooming products with purchase.

The Valentine
You’re on your own for that one.

Toro NYC Comes Home. Sort Of.
MISS CLIO

Toro NYC Comes Home. Sort Of.

Ken Oringer is bringing his choice tapas—fried chicken liver, jamón ibérico, etc.—from Toro NYC back to Boston. They’re available for a limited time at Clio’s bar. Presumably because serving them at Toro would be too easy.

Friday
Anti-Valentine’s at Area Four
I’M WITH CUPID

Anti-Valentine’s at Area Four

Sure, everyone complains about Valentine’s Day. But Area Four is actually doing something about it. Specifically, holding two nights with sad movies (Blue Valentine for one), breakup soundtracks, spice-laden Angry Pizza and mean candy hearts. Bring a date and really confuse them.

Feb 14-15, 5-10pm, bar open until midnight, Area Four, 500 Technology Sq, Cambridge, 617-758-4444

Sunday
Four Bartenders Enter. Everyone Drinks.
