Things to do for March 13, 2014
Lobster Reubens, Chariot Races and Alfresco Merrymaking
Luck o’ the weekend.
Late-Night Burgering at Boston Chops
They say you shouldn’t eat late at night. They also say bacon cheeseburgers are delicious. Related: Boston Chops is now serving burgers until 1am every night at the bar. They come in a variety of combos involving PBR, fernet or adult milkshakes. There’s a happy meal joke in here somewhere.
2,058 years ago, Julius Caesar was removed from office via knives. In commemoration, Union Square is turning itself into a Roman forum complete with toga fittings, a gladiator tournament and chariot races. And it all ends with a toga after-party at the Independent. Just the way it did in ancient history.
You Look Like You Could Use a Patio
Pier 6 is honoring the patron saint of patio parties by reopening their own for the season. You’ll find the obligatory corned beef and cabbage alongside cocktails like The Mickey Ward with whiskey, Baileys and Harpoon stout. Like an Irish stew made entirely of alcohol.
Two Days of Oysters and Beer and Glory
There’s a spring tailgate at Row 34. Expect tailgate things like multiple kegs, a grill and a tent. And expect Row 34 things like fish tacos and lobster sliders. Five bucks gets you in and earns you six gratis oysters. Additional money earns you more.
Meet the Lobster Reuben
The mad sandwich scientists at Pauli’s have successfully combined the DNA of a lobster and a Reuben sandwich. What that means: two slices of grilled rye, lobster meat, swiss, sauerkraut and Thousand Island. It’s briefly joining the menu starting Monday. And should make a great foundation for green beer.
