Things to do for April 30, 2015

The Weekender

Juleps, Pinball and Spaceballs

My old Kentucky weekend.

Thursday
It’s La Brasa’s Birthday. There’s Pork.
LA LA LA LA LA BRASA

It’s La Brasa’s Birthday. There’s Pork.

Oysters. ’Gansett. Pig roast. DJ. We were going somewhere with this... oh, right. There’s a one-year anniversary party at La Brasa, and all of those things will be there. You, too, presumably. The pig doesn’t have a choice.

Friday
It’s a Juice Truck and a 24-Hour Clover
HEALTH OF NATIONS

It’s a Juice Truck and a 24-Hour Clover

If you aren’t getting enough fruit: A new juice truck is out distributing carrot-orange-melon-ginger juice. And Apple Jax kale chips while they’re at it.

If you aren’t getting enough pinball/vegetables: A 24-hour Clover has arrived in Central Square, and it’s got pinball machines. Anything to get you to eat your vegetables.

Saturday
Up to 80% Off Sault’s Finest
WORTH YOUR SAULT

Up to 80% Off Sault’s Finest

Here’s the part where we say: “Sault’s having a sidewalk sale with up to 80% off the likes of Jack Spade bags, New England Shirt Company shirts and Todd Snyder x Champion sweatshirts.” And this is the part where you cancel your Saturday plans.

Derby-ing Pretty Hard at Oak Long Bar
DERBY DEEDS

Derby-ing Pretty Hard at Oak Long Bar

And now, a checklist for Oak Long Bar’s Derby Day soiree:

—Many, many juleps: check.
—Grilled pimento cheese sandwiches: check.
—Prizes for Best-Dressed and Best Hat: check.
—Tearful recitation of “My Old Kentucky Home”: you’re in charge of checking that one off.

Sunday
Quaffing Your Way Through Spaceballs
SPACE JAM

Quaffing Your Way Through Spaceballs

Backbar is about to screen ’80s classic Spaceballs the way it was meant to be screened. Aka paired with four different Bols Genever–centric cocktails including a number called I See Your Schwartz Is as Big as Mine. They’ve gone to plaid.
