Things to do for August 07, 2014
Lawn Games, Oysters and Two Rather Large Sales
You have one new friend request from the weekend.
Take 2 Sales and Call Us in the Morning
Happening right now at Sault: Up to 50% off of Jack Spade bags, Burkman Bros shorts and New
England Shirt Company pants. Just kidding, it’s shirts.
Happening right now at Good: Cufflinks, eyewear and Billykirk wallets, all 50% less than they should be. You sense a pattern here.
A New Korean Fried-Chicken Spot Rises
Soon, you may find yourself in a little white room in Allston with nothing but four plastic tables and a flat-screen. You’ll wonder why you’re there. Then a box full of crunchy, spicy, glazed Korean fried chicken will be placed before you, and you’ll remember. You were really hungry.
Croquet Lessons and Gin. It’s a Party.
There’s an Edwardian Garden Party afoot in Cambridge, and it meets all the requirements:
—A really, really old house.
—Period-accurate gin drinks.
—Costumed reenactors in character.
—Croquet lessons from a seven-time national croquet champion.
But especially that last one.
First you scream. Now we’ll scream. Then we’ll get everybody else to scream.
And now: ice cream. Specifically, GoodFat—a fantastically named, homemade variety by a 3 Little Figs baker that’s available for one evening only along with affogato and ice cream cookie sandwiches.
Okay, everybody can stop screaming now.
Legal Oysteria. Lunch. Now Happening.
Grilled oysters and cannoli pancakes are two dishes with absolutely nothing in common. Aside from sharing menu space at Legal Oysteria’s newly minted weekend lunch, where you’ll also find steak sandwiches topped with pancetta and mortadella. Also known as the least vegetarian dish ever made.
