Your Perks: 1) A guitar signed by the Stones or the Boss or the... Van Halen. You want. 2) A three-piece hard-shell luggage set that’s practically begging to be taken on vacation. 3) Gallery-worthy canvas prints of some seriously unique artwork. Your walls are ready to make a statement.
Things to do for March 12, 2015
Noodles, Ping-Pong and Icelandic Rock
The weekend drove the snakes out of Ireland.
Brighton’s New Noodle Joint Goes Thusly
Let’s see if Brighton’s mysterious new noodle joint meets our “cult Asian spot” criteria:
—Minimal decorations: check
—A constant wait: check
—Hand-pulled noodles and cumin lamb burgers: check
—Prices that appear to be a joke but are, in fact, really that low: check
Congrats, MDM. You made it.
Put These on Your Feet and Smile
Ball and Buck is the first to carry these new, American-made heavyweight canvas sneakers from PF Flyers and they’re spring-tastic. Never say spring-tastic.
It’s an Icelandic Rock Invasion. Ha.
You may ask yourself what Iceland has ever done for you. Well, Iceland has dispatched two of its finest musical acts—Kaleo and Beebee and the Bluebirds, specifically—to join two local bands for a gratis show at the Middle East this weekend. That’s what it’s done for you.
A Burlesque Ode to the Ides of March
Julius Caesar left this earth 2,059 years ago this Sunday. So in honor of... that, Oberon’s assembling a bunch of burlesque ladies to remove the majority of their clothing on stage. Audience toga-wearing is encouraged. Audience toga-removal is not.
Corned Beef, Whiskey and Ping-Pong
Commonwealth’s celebrating St. Patrick’s Day just like they do in the old country: with a 64-person ping-pong tournament. A ticket grants you a spot in the tourney, an Irish whiskey drink and snacks like corned beef sliders. There cannot not be corned beef.
