Thursday
Mei Mei Takeout. It Exists Now.
MEI DAY MEI DAY

Mei Mei Takeout. It Exists Now.

Mei Mei has just completed the restaurant circle of life. They’ve gone from food truck to restaurant to takeout joint with a new to-go-only menu featuring fried pierogies and smoked-ham and cheese on challah, all for less than one Alexander Hamilton. Gone too soon, that guy.

The Return of Sabroso Taqueria

The Return of Sabroso Taqueria

“There are no second acts in American lives.”
–F. Scott Fitzgerald

“There are second acts in American taquerias.”
–Us

We’re referring to Sabroso Taqueria, of course. The 2008 demolition of Filene’s put them out of business, but they’re back downtown with steak quesadillas and carnitas. Can’t keep a good carnita down.

Saturday
The Comic Con of Drinking
AT THIRST SIGHT

The Comic Con of Drinking

All of this may appear on your Instagram feed during Thirst Boston this weekend:
—A gin-filled French café inside the Fairmont Copley.
—Cocktails from legendary Portland and Providence bars at the State Lines pop-up.
—After-parties at Drink and JM Curley.
—Something blurry and regrettable.

Introducing the Ball and Buck... Shotgun
GUN FOR HIRE

Introducing the Ball and Buck... Shotgun

“I came here to buy pants and a shotgun.” You’ve always wanted to say that. And you can now, because Ball and Buck’s gone and made 76 Ruger 12-gauge shotguns spruced up with engravings and gold. No word on silver bullets.

Now available to reserve online and in-store, Ball and Buck, 144B Newbury St, 617-262-1776

Sunday
Hot Shave. Scotch. Suits. Mr. Sid.
GROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT

Hot Shave. Scotch. Suits. Mr. Sid.

If your morning grooming routine involves a hot shave, a shoe shine, a scotch tasting, an Eidos Napoli trunk show and lunch from a personal chef, then by all means stay at home Sunday. But if it doesn’t, Mr. Sid can cover those bases for you. He’s a great Mr.

Nov 9, noon-5pm, Mr. Sid, 1211 Centre St, Newton, reserve at 617-969-4540
