The Weekender

Watermelons Full of Sangria and Other Fourth-Friendly Things

We hold this weekend to be self-evident.

Thursday
How to Buy Katharine Hepburn’s House
HEPBURNING DOWN THE HOUSE

How to Buy Katharine Hepburn’s House

Katharine Hepburn. The woman knew a thing or two about being a mid-20th-century film titan. And building waterfront mansions in Connecticut, turns out. Case in point: her 1939 estate with a private beach and other Hepburn-like diversions is currently on the market. Okay, you can read other things now.

PITA THE FOOL

The Lunch Gods Look Kindly upon You

Hey, a new Lebanese lunch spot. They have what you’d expect, like chicken kebabs with homemade hummus. And they also have what you wouldn’t expect but want to eat anyway, like baked stuffed clams topped with bacon and cheese. You must have an angel looking out for you.

J.McLaughlin, Now 60% Closer to Free

If the packing list for your upcoming summer getaway doesn’t include things like linen gingham shirts, Nantucket-red skull pants and swim trunks covered in tiny surfers, J.McLaughlin is helping you correct that with up to 60% off of some summer wearables. By which we mean “clothes.”

Friday
Sangria-Filled Watermelons on a Roof
COME FOURTH

Sangria-Filled Watermelons on a Roof

Rooftop @ Revere is celebrating July 4 the same way our founding fathers did 238 years ago: by holding an all-weekend party with picnic baskets, a dollar-oyster bar and entire, hollowed-out watermelons filled with sparkling sangria. Okay, so that’s not historically accurate.

Jul 4, 11am-5pm, $20 (no cost 5pm-midnight); Jul 5-6, 11am-5pm, $30 (no cost 5pm-midnight), Rooftop @ Revere, 200 Stuart St, 617-457-2663

Sunday
Brunch: Now a Thing at Brass Union
BRASS CEILING

Brunch: Now a Thing at Brass Union

Some say the combination of chorizo omelets and oversize Connect Four can cure any morning-after woe. Except no one says that. But Brass Union just launched their brunch on a freshly minted patio full of games, so expect more of those things in your future. In case you weren’t already.
