The Weekender

Competitive Guac, New Lunch and Hats

Would you like to add the weekend to your meal for an additional $1.50?

New Lunch, Right Where You Need It
FLATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES

New Lunch, Right Where You Need It

Piadina. Sounds like the name of a beautiful signora or something. But really, it’s a flaky flatbread sandwich from Northern Italy. You’ll find it alongside generous quantities of espresso at this new, exactly named café in the Financial District. Which you may now call the Flatbread District.

Now open, Piadina Café, 75 State St (entrance on Kilby St), 617-936-4453

A Night of Mojitos and Dapper Headwear
HAVANA AT IT

A Night of Mojitos and Dapper Headwear

Take a peek into either Boston-area Goorin Bros. shop tonight, and you’ll notice that they’ve been filled with free mojitos, live Cuban music and a Havana-inspired collection of straw hats and porkpie fedoras. Must be some sort of Cuban-themed hat party.

Friday
Two Feet of Muffuletta at the Hawthorne
WHOLE LETTA LOVE

Two Feet of Muffuletta at the Hawthorne

“Hey, Hawthorne,” you fake-said, “can you make me a muffuletta with ghost-chili salami on Friday and Saturday nights?” “Sure,” the Hawthorne fake-replied, “we’ll make one two-footer and sell it in sections all night. But you can get all 24 inches by calling ahead.” This has been fun.

Fri-Sat, 5pm-midnight or while supplies last, The Hawthorne, 500A Commonwealth Ave, 617-532-9150

Saturday
Look Who’s Lunching Now
MERRILL LUNCH

Look Who’s Lunching Now

Merrill & Co. used to have lunch 0% of the time. That’s changed to 28.57% of the time, with the addition of a weekend-only lunch featuring fried-catfish sandwiches and a Diner Breakfast platter with eggs, hash browns and a weekly meat special. So you can always count on it not being tofu.

Sunday
This Weekend in Competitive Guacamole
GUAC SOLID

This Weekend in Competitive Guacamole

There’s a guac-off at the Painted Burro. It works like American Idol, if American Idol were about eating people’s guacamole submissions and voting the winning batch onto the Burro’s menu. So, better than American Idol in every possible way.
