Your Perks: 1) Clothing created by MIT grads that’s designed to keep you cool. 2) An umbrella that’s super-lightweight, wind-resistant and invaluable to you this spring. 3) A bottle of rosé from a renowned winemaker in the Côtes de Provence region of France... and five others just like it.
Things to do for May 07, 2015
New Patio, New Bar, New Brunch, New Weekend
The weekend was always Mom’s favorite.
Look Who’s Patio-ing Now
Loyal Nine built itself a 32-seat patio. Good form, Loyal Nine.
By day: You’ll sun yourself over carbonated cold brew and scones.
By night: You’ll make camp with grilled pork ribs and tea punch.
By weekend afternoon: You’ll be out there with a Bloody.
Maybe, like, a scone or something.
Where the Outdoor Concert Things Are
Boston Calling’s Block Parties Series is back. And this time they’ll be bringing gratis outdoor shows from local bands to both Summer Street Plaza and Dewey Square. It starts tonight at the former with Tigerman Woah. They put a “Woah” in there, so you know they’re good.
You’ll Have the Big Papi
There’s a new JP empanada place with patacones, seafood ceviche and 29 types of empanadas to choose from. And that’s fine. But it doesn’t matter. Because you’re having the Big Papi, an XL-size empanada that somehow contains every filling on the menu. This is our f**king city, indeed.
It’s a Whole New Bar at the Sinclair
The Sinclair has a new second-floor bar, and it’s designed to look like you’re inside an old-timey club car. Fake windows and everything. It’ll be christened on Saturday with plenty of mezcal and alcohol-filled popsicles. Because it’s a bar.
“Okay, You Can Brunch.” —Bastille
We’ve intercepted a secret telegram from Bastille Kitchen. It reads:
PORK BELLY CROQUE MADAME (STOP) GLAZED CINNAMON-SUGAR MINI CROISSANTS (STOP) BACON-PECAN-CARAMEL FRENCH TOAST (STOP)
Looks like some kind of code. Or a new brunch.
