Better Than Bottled Water...
PERK ALERT

Better Than Bottled Water...

Your Perks: 1) A sleek carafe that uses charcoal to naturally mineralize your drinking water. (It’s an ancient Japanese thing.) 2) A summer six-pack of rich, crisp, Tuscany-bred Chianti—for $105. 3) A Perks-approved deal on any work of art at Crated—the Internet’s newest art gallery. A little culture never killed anyone.

Riding Fake Bikes in an Old Bank
SPOKE TOO SOON

Riding Fake Bikes in an Old Bank

You had a pretty solid excuse for maybe possibly not working out this summer. Nobody opened a spin studio inside of an old Downtown bank with a high-tech sound system and grooming goods from Aesop. Well... that excuse has run its course.

Now open, B/SPOKE, 101 Federal St, 617-951-9900

A Whole Lot of Bluegrass at the ICA
IN SEASON

A Whole Lot of Bluegrass at the ICA

This evening, a banjo-toting quintet by the name of Grey Season will be doing their folk-and-bluegrass thing at the ICA’s Harborwalk. The whole performance is really a postmodern critique on... wait. It’s just a free outdoor show. You got us this time, ICA.

Outside: A Big Truck Full of Po’boys
PO OFFICE

Outside: A Big Truck Full of Po’boys

The fish-frying genius behind Newton’s Po Boy could have just put his existing restaurant on wheels and towed it around Boston. But because that doesn’t make sense, he’s opening a food truck instead. So expect more fried oysters, shrimp and catfish to enter your life. Well, mouth.

Sunday
This Caribbean Brunch Has Three Courses
AND EVERYTHING NICE

This Caribbean Brunch Has Three Courses

Some ‘Ting Nice is in the brunch game now, and here’s how it works: give them a piece of paper printed with Andrew Jackson’s likeness and you’ll receive three courses of Caribbean delights like fruit chow, dumplings with smoked herring and sweetbreads. Eat them. End of transaction.
