The Weekender

New Lunches, 1,500 Oysters and a Patio Party

All the world’s a weekend.

PULL NO LUNCHES

Since We Heard You Like Lunch...

Pastoral and Bondir Concord have been making some pretty bold claims about offering lunch for the first time ever. They’re even saying they have the respective duck-sausage pizza and beef bavette to prove it. Feel free to investigate those claims with your mouth.

MR. TEE

These Shirts Are Halfway to Free

The Roger tee and the pocket tee at Ball and Buck: both nearly perfect pieces of T-shaped, American-made cotton. You wouldn’t change a thing. But if their prices suddenly decreased by 50% in-store and online, you wouldn’t complain. You’d probably buy just... buy one.

DOWN IN THE DUMPLINGS

Gourmet Dumpling House: The Sequel

Everyone agrees. The spicy fish soup and pork buns at Gourmet Dumpling House are magnificent. The lines out the door and claustrophobic dining conditions... not so much. Well, it just cloned itself into a much larger space in Cambridge. Call it dumpling manifest destiny.

Now open, Dumpling House, 950 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, 617-661-8066

Sunday
UD - On the Matter of Rhubarb Doritos
ALL HANDS ON DECK

On the Matter of Rhubarb Doritos

The Sinclair’s patio is back for spring, and there’s a party. And in case you need more motivation, they’ll also be dispensing rum punch, brioche donut holes and some housemade jalapeño rhubarb Doritos. Sorry if you were expecting Cool Ranch.

Apr 27, 3-6pm, $15, The Sinclair, 52 Church St, Cambridge, 617-547-5200

Monday
UD - Sound the Oyster Alarm
OYSTER VEY

Sound the Oyster Alarm

Monday nights are once again filled with dollar oysters at Rialto. To kick things off, they’re inviting the oyster-having folks from Wellfleet, Moon Shoal and Island Creek to come shuck 1,500 bivalves to the tune of 100 cents each. And it would only cost you $1,500 to ruin everyone else’s fun.
