The Weekender

A Burger Party, a Dance Party and... Juice

Please answer in the form of a weekend.

VAN DO

Meet Vanderbilt. Tequila Is Involved.

The Vault was the Vault until it wasn’t anymore. Now it answers to Vanderbilt, and it welcomes you with open arms, many leather banquettes and a Grand-Marnier-and-tequila concoction dubbed The 1942. It was a very good year.

A Tasty Burger Inside a Train Station

Back Bay Station’s done an admirable job of supplying you with trains. But it’s done a less than admirable job of supplying you with macaroni-and-cheese-topped burgers and chocolate shakes. Until this new Tasty Burger opened inside of it and changed all that. Its work here is done.

Saturday
This Place Has Grass Jelly. Juice, Too.
WILD JUICE CHASE

This Place Has Grass Jelly. Juice, Too.

A new juice place just opened in Chinatown. Naturally, your question is “Are they also serving Taiwanese-style bubble teas with grass jelly?” Of course they are. Also, you seem surprisingly familiar with grass jelly.

A Deck-Side Dance Party at the ICA
MONTAGE OF DECK

A Deck-Side Dance Party at the ICA

The ICA’s about to hold a massive dance party on its deck. And between the open bar, three DJs and midnight dessert buffet from Party of Two, you might forget where you are. Then some experimental performance art happens, and you suddenly remember. That’s how they get you.

Tuesday
We’re Not Done with Burger News Yet
PATTY ISSUES

We’re Not Done with Burger News Yet

Local beef patty intelligentsia Sammy Monsour and Richard Chudy just published a highly burger-centric cookbook. And that’s excellent. But what’s more excellent is their release party at Farm & Fable, complete with a grinding demo, burger samples, and wine and beer pairings. In summary: burgers.
