The Weekender

Suits, Soccer and a Bocce Party

The weekend is for you and one guest and is not transferable.

Thursday
So This Seems Pretty Dad-Proof
POP ROCKS

So This Seems Pretty Dad-Proof

Good thing your dad likes gratis spiked Arnold Palmers and Tom Collinses, giveaways from Jack Spade and Harry’s razors, and raffles for Jack Spade bags. Because, yeah... happening. Happening at Sault.

This Was a Church. Now It’s This.
PITA PARTY

This Was a Church. Now It’s This.

Pop quiz. What do you do with an empty downtown church?
A) Let it be.
B) Use it as a carrier pigeon sanctuary.
C) Turn it into a new Mediterranean lunch spot that bakes its own pita bread and makes a mean chicken a la plancha.
D) This is the fake “D” option.

Friday
Ted Baker, Now Half Free
CLUB TED

Ted Baker, Now Half Free

You must have done something to get on Ted Baker’s good side. Because there’s a summer sale afoot, and he’s letting you take up to 50% off his whimsically dapper suits, blazers and other stuff that looks good on bodies. We’re going to assume you have one of those.

Ongoing, Ted Baker, 201 Newbury St, 617-450-8339

Sunday
Bocce and Subs at a Chocolate Factory
SUB HUB

Bocce and Subs at a Chocolate Factory

Let’s start listing things dads are into: Italian subs. Beer. Picnic tables. Bocce ball. Okay, now let’s put all those things outside of a dad-pleasing place. Like a chocolate factory. Great. And now let’s call it “The Great Italian Sub Party.” Good job, everybody.

Monday
World Cup Watching in an Old Mansion
PUT A SOCCER IN IT

World Cup Watching in an Old Mansion

So you need an excuse for a longer-than-expected lunch on Monday. Sure. Here’s one: a Germany vs. Portugal viewing party in an old Back Bay mansion complete with pretzels and German beer. We’ll assume you’re cheering for Germany. What with said mansion being a German cultural institute and all.
