Things to do for April 23, 2015

The Weekender

Opera Brunch, Champagne and Doug Stamper Cocktails

Fresh ground weekend?

Thursday
Uniform Turns 10. You Drink Champagne.
IN UNIFORM

Uniform Turns 10. You Drink Champagne.

When you turned 10, you ate cake. But clothing stores can’t eat cake. So Uniform’s celebrating with champagne cocktails, a DJ and 20% off all of their spring/summer gear, watches and backpacks. This may be better than cake.

Friday
It’s the Age of the Townsman Burger
TALK OF THE TOWNSMAN

It’s the Age of the Townsman Burger

You: Hey, Townsman, I hear you do lunch now.
Townsman: No, no... nothing to see here.
You: [Pulls back metaphorical curtain to find a room filled with lamb pastrami, pork schnitzel and pepper jack cheeseburgers] Liar.

Saturday
Stephanie’s and Meritage. They’re Back.
RETURN POLICY

Stephanie’s and Meritage. They’re Back.

This week in comebacks:

—Stephanie’s on Newbury returns with drink rails, scorpion bowls and a whiskey drink called Doug Stamper.
—Meritage roars back as Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar with lobster gnocchi, Colorado lamb chops and a marble wine bar.

In summary: there’s a Doug Stamper cocktail.

Sunday
Eat Some Pancakes. Hear Some Opera.
SONG TIME COMING

Eat Some Pancakes. Hear Some Opera.

If you’re eating pancakes at the Burren this Sunday and someone starts belting out Candide, remain calm. It’s just part of Opera on Tap, which is a thing where you eat brunch while local singers perform opera, jazz standards and musical theater classics. You don’t have to join in.

Monday
At Last, CNR’s Going Brick-and-Mortar
THE RICE MAN COMETH

At Last, CNR’s Going Brick-and-Mortar

Remember all those times you sat around wondering how there wasn’t a physical Chicken & Rice Guys location yet? Well, forget those times. Then stand up and get yourself to a little room in Downtown Crossing where the rice, chicken and white sauce never end. Not heaven. Just a restaurant.
