The Weekender

Cheeseburgers, Jazz and Real Festivus

Would you like a gift receipt with your weekend?

Thursday
Apple-Pie Shrubs and Scones in Davis
SCONE COMMODITY

Apple-Pie Shrubs and Scones in Davis

Sure, it’s all eggnog and buttered rum right now. But a time will soon come when you’ll want something... lighter. Enter this new 10-seat Davis Square café that’s giving you teas, apple-pie shrubs and maple-glazed scones now and salads in mason jars later. Of course there’s mason jars.

Burgers. New Ones. Good Ones.

Burgers. New Ones. Good Ones.

Newton-based burger joint Lee’s has just gained a foothold in Coolidge Corner. You’ll find the expected bacon cheeseburgers, the slightly less expected honey-glazed sweet potato fries and the wholly unexpected smoothies like a strawberry-banana-apple number called Fantastic Day. No one ever expects those.

Now open, Lee’s Burgers, 1331 Beacon St, Brookline, 617-487-8689

Friday
Kiton’s Coming. They Brought Suits.
KITON SURFING

Kiton’s Coming. They Brought Suits.

There really is a spring 2015 out there. Otherwise the good people of Kiton wouldn’t go to the trouble of bringing their spring and summer goodness all the way to Louis Boston this weekend to measure you for a new suit. We hear they accept wish lists.

Saturday
A Real-Life Festivus at Aeronaut
FIRST WE FEST

A Real-Life Festivus at Aeronaut

Aeronaut’s observing Festivus this year. And, thankfully, they’re keeping all the traditions:
—An actual steel Festivus pole.
—Feats of strength carried out by aerial performers.
—A social media “airing of grievances” via projector.
—Roxy’s Grilled Cheese.
—Dancing.
Okay, the last two are new.

Sunday

BRUNCH RUSH

Those Two New Brunches You Asked For

Dear Santa,
I’m not asking for much this year. All I really want is a jazz brunch at Bar Boulud with corned short rib hash and spiced-apple crepes. Oh, and a new brunch at Centre Street Cafe with grilled oysters and huevos Mexicanos.
We got your letter for some reason. Anyway, he said yes.
