The Weekender

New Patio, New Bar, New Brunch, New Weekend

The weekend was always Mom’s favorite.

Thursday
Look Who’s Patio-ing Now
DECKING ORDER

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.

Patio now open, Loyal Nine, 660 Cambridge St, Cambridge, 617-945-2576

Where the Outdoor Concert Things Are
SCHOOL OF BLOCK

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.

Friday
You’ll Have the Big Papi
EMPANADA STRIKES BACK

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.

Now open, Pikalo, 378 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, 617-522-1210

Saturday
It’s a Whole New Bar at the Sinclair
THE BAR SIDE

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.

Sunday
“Okay, You Can Brunch.” —Bastille
FRENCH WARRANT

“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.
