Things to do for May 01, 2014

The Weekender

Derby Parties, Mariachi and Girls Singing About Beer

And the weekend’s off...

Thursday
A Julep-Fueled Trunk Show at Mr. Sid
HOLD YOUR HORSES

A Julep-Fueled Trunk Show at Mr. Sid

Today is... not Derby Day. But it’s close enough for the folks at Mr. Sid to pack the joint with things like shrimp remoulade, fried green tomatoes, juleps galore and a Peter Millar trunk show. They kind of snuck that last one in there.

Friday
They Sing. They Dance. They Pour Beer.
SEEING BREAD

They Sing. They Dance. They Pour Beer.

Meet the Breadettes. They’re a trio of lovely British ladies who are about to educate you on banana bread beer through song and dance. And also pour you said beer (it’s called Wells Banana Bread) at Pier 6. If you’re thinking “why,” you’re doing it wrong.

May 2, 6-8pm, Pier 6, 1 8th St, Charlestown, 617-337-0054

Picture Sault. Now Picture 70% Off...
SAVE THE SALES

Picture Sault. Now Picture 70% Off...

Sault New England needs you to take some things off their hands. And those things would include Jack Spade bags, Todd Snyder x Champion sweatshirts and New England Shirt Company button-ups for up to 70% off. You can probably find a way to help.

May 2-11; Tue-Sat, 11am-7pm; Sun, 11am-5pm; Sault New England, 577 Tremont St, 857-239-9434

Saturday
Three Hours of Rooftop Derby Excellence
TOPSY DERBY

Three Hours of Rooftop Derby Excellence

They say the Kentucky Derby is the greatest two minutes in sports. And this rooftop soiree at Legal Harborside may be the greatest 180 minutes in Derby parties. Cases in point: the oyster bar, the DJ and passed Southern delights like mini chicken and waffles. Sorry if you wanted giant chicken and waffles.

Monday
Mariachi Is Only the Beginning
CINC OR SWIM

Mariachi Is Only the Beginning

1) A plurality of mezcal cocktails.
2) A nine-piece mariachi band.
3) Foie gras tamales.
That... was a relatively specific Cinco de Mayo wish list. But turns out, Beat Hotel will have every single one of those things on Monday night. Although you probably saw the mariachi coming.

May 5, 4pm-1am, Beat Hotel, 13 Brattle St, Cambridge, 617-499-0001
