Things to do for May 28, 2015

The Weekender

A Clambake, Oysters and a Hot Shave

The weekend can be worn tucked or untucked.

Thursday
A Giant, Inflatable Maze at Lawn on D
MAZE OF OUR LIVES

A Giant, Inflatable Maze at Lawn on D

—“How about we get lost together.”
Good call.

—“How about we get lost together inside a massive, illuminated, inflatable labyrinth called Pentalum that’s set up all weekend at the Lawn on D?”
Best call.

Saturday
One Last Meal at Via Matta
THE LAST SUPPER

One Last Meal at Via Matta

It’s true: Via Matta is closing, and Saturday night is their last stand. By which we mean Michael Schlow will be in the house cooking a “Chef’s Choice” menu based entirely on the kitchen’s whim for each diner. Hopefully they’re in a good mood.

May 30, 5-11:30pm, $75, Via Matta, 79 Park Plaza, 617-422-0008

Patio Clambake. You Know What to Do.
SILENCE OF THE CLAMS

Patio Clambake. You Know What to Do.

Clam and slam. On their own, they’re monosyllabic words that pleasantly rhyme. But put them together, and you get a patio-based clambake accompanied by a whole pig roast and rivers of ’Gansett at Abigail’s. Spoiler: someone put them together.

Sunday
Suits, Beer and a Hot Shave Await You
GROOM AND BOARD

Suits, Beer and a Hot Shave Await You

Pop quiz: which of the following do not belong at Mr. Sid’s Sunday grooming session?

—By-appointment hot shaves.
—Shoeshines.
—A Jack’s Abby beer tasting.
—A made-to-measure pop-up from Arkansas-based tailor Strong Suit.

You knew this was a trick question, right?

Monday vs. Oysters and Hot Dogs

This week’s good Monday news:

At Serafina: “Portofino Mondays,” which entails a lounge DJ and $1 live-shucked oysters.
At the Kirkland Tap & Trotter: A summer series of guest-chef-created hot dogs, starting Monday with a dog by Ken Oringer. Really stretching his potential there.
