The Weekender

Bluegrass, Samba and a 1,000-Pound Pie

Expect light snow and a weekendry mix.

Thursday
1,000 Pounds of Gratis Key Lime Pie
KEY LIME TO THE KINGDOM

1,000 Pounds of Gratis Key Lime Pie

If you have any work meetings this afternoon, go ahead and cancel those. If anyone asks, tell them a nine-foot-wide, half-ton key lime pie is about to be sliced and distributed free of charge at South Station. Good excuse as any.

A Rather Intense Sale at NRO Sport
SPORTING CHANCE

A Rather Intense Sale at NRO Sport

Take a look outside and you may say to yourself, “You know, I wish NRO Sport would take up to 75% off a wide variety of winter gear like ski gloves from Hestra and outerwear from Patagonia, Kjus and Dale of Norway.” You should talk to yourself more often.

Through Feb 16, NRO Sport, 39 Charles St, 617-742-3900

Friday
Samba and Caipirinhas at the ICA
LICENSE TO ’ZIL

Samba and Caipirinhas at the ICA

Tomorrow, the ICA celebrates Carnaval. They can’t import Rio’s weather, but they can bring a Brazilian artist and her exhibit focusing on Brazil’s past, present and future, plus caipirinhas, a local troupe of samba dancers and a five-hour dance party. It’s Brazil-themed, in case you didn’t catch that.

Saturday
Couple Vital Brunch Updates Here
BRUNCH OUT

Couple Vital Brunch Updates Here

If you thought your eggs benedict needed more twang: Beat Brasserie is correcting that with live bluegrass every Saturday during brunch.
If you thought Belly needed a brunch: That’s happening for the first time, with all the beignets and chicken-fried steak you always imagined it would. Now go eat it instead.

Sunday
Salsa Dancing in a Rock-Climbing Gym
BETTER CALL SALSA

Salsa Dancing in a Rock-Climbing Gym

Most nights, Brooklyn Boulders is a legitimate rock-climbing establishment. But Sunday night, it becomes a front for salsa dancing. You’ll receive a lesson, followed by over three hours of DJ’d dancing, salsa performances and beer from Aeronaut. You can climb rocks another day.
