Things to do for June 11, 2015

The Weekender

New Patio, Many Tacos, Few Picnics

Weekend, attorney at law.

Thursday
Gratis Tacos from a Fenway Food Cart
PERFECT FEN

Gratis Tacos from a Fenway Food Cart

Sometimes you just don’t question a good thing. Like when something called the Fenway Cart appears in a parking lot to distribute gratis ballpark-inspired food from Mei Mei Street Kitchen like hot dogs with watermelon-radish relish and teriyaki beef tacos. To be clear: don’t question that.

Hot Dogs and Champagne at Menton
ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN

Hot Dogs and Champagne at Menton

For three blessed hours tonight, Menton will welcome walk-ins for hot dogs of the foie gras, surf and turf and classic varieties, all paired with champagne. It’s officially a pop-up, but really it’s like the Met Ball of hot dog dinners.

Friday
Your Next Picnic Goes Like This
PIC’ AND ROLL

Your Next Picnic Goes Like This

Wow. Really nice weather for bringing a picnic basket to the Common. Correction: really nice weather for bringing a picnic basket from Davio’s stuffed with Caesar salads, chicken parm sandwiches, Italian cheeses and a blanket to the Common. You don’t eat the blanket.

Mon-Fri through August, 11:30am-3pm, $95, Davio’s Boston, 75 Arlington St, 617-357-4810

Jenga and Shuffleboard on a Giant Boat
BOAT TO SELF

Jenga and Shuffleboard on a Giant Boat

This Friday, floating pleasure-teria Spirit of Boston will alternate hourly between being at port and sailing the harbor. So you can just kind of come and go as you please. Oh, and the whole time, it will have a DJ, shuffleboard and oversize Jenga on board. No one wants undersize Jenga.

Saturday
This Patio Didn’t Exist Before
