The Weekender

Pizza, Flamenco and Four Hours of Sinatra

A Mr. Weekend picked up your tab.

HOUSE OF CARBS

A New Pasta Stronghold Rises

There was once a little garrison of Italian deliciousness called DePasquale’s Homemade Pasta Shoppe. But it was too small for all the deliciousness. So Frank DePasquale opened Bricco Salumeria & Pasta Shoppe, housing more homemade sauces, cured meats, panini and over 100 kinds of pasta. We’re sure spaghetti is in there somewhere.

Riding Out Winter with 70% Off NRO Gear

Ivy-style stronghold North River Outfitter is making up for all those times you didn’t buy Castaway critter cords and Peter Millar cashmere sweaters at up to 70% off. Or took advantage of a flat 40% off Barbour jackets and Patagonia fleeces. Do the right thing this time.

A New Pizza Spot That Loves Scissors
ROCK-PIZZA-SCISSORS

A New Pizza Spot That Loves Scissors

Scissors. Terrible for running. Just fine for cutting pizza. So the folks behind this new pie joint are using them to cut sheets of doughy, Roman-style pizza with toppings like handmade buffalo mozzarella or smoked salmon. And you pay by the ounce, not the slice. Guess ounces are big in Rome.

Saturday
The Spanish Dance Saturday Requires
NO SPAIN, NO GAIN

The Spanish Dance Saturday Requires

Your tests just came back. And we don’t know how to say this, but... your flamenco levels are dangerously low. Luckily, you can catch some of the Spanish dance tradition’s greatest practitioners this weekend at the Berklee Performance Center. We expect a full recovery.

Sunday
Sinatra-Powered Brunch at Strega Prime
CROON-FED

Sinatra-Powered Brunch at Strega Prime

You may be alarmed when Frank Sinatra appears at Strega Prime and starts belting out “Fly Me to the Moon” during brunch. Until you realize it’s not Frank Sinatra but a professional crooner who sounds a lot like Ol’ Blue Eyes. Still, you’ll take it.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, Strega Prime, Trade Center 128, 100 Sylvan Rd, Woburn, 781-933-3333
