The Weekender

Donuts, New Coffee and a Music Fest on a Farm

Stomp the Weekend

Thursday
Great Lunch Tidings at the Pru
FOOD COURT PRESS

Great Lunch Tidings at the Pru

The Prudential’s food court: dead and gone. Eataly: not happening for a while. In the meantime, a food court of sorts is popping up all month in the Belvidere Arcade, featuring a rotating roster of locals like Sa Pa and CNR Guys. And that’s the story of how lunch was saved.

Food Trucks, Beer and Pixels
TRUE BIT

Food Trucks, Beer and Pixels

Bit Fest is returning to Night Shift Brewing, and we can say with 100% certainty that there will be no classic arcade machines, no food trucks and absolutely no beers.*

*Correction: there will be classic arcade machines, food trucks and beers.

Friday
Union Square Donuts, Meet Shake Shack
CONCRETE JUNGLE

Union Square Donuts, Meet Shake Shack

We don’t know what you did, but it must have been wonderful. Because the universe decided to make you a Shake Shack concrete with vanilla custard, coffee-marshmallow sauce and a glazed cake donut from Union Square Donuts. Never question the universe’s motives.

Available through Aug 31, $4.75-$6.75, Shake Shack, 234-236 Newbury St, 617-933-5050; and Shake Shack, 92 Winthrop St, Cambridge, 617-758-8495

Saturday
A New Place to Get Coffee and Things
TO THE NINE

A New Place to Get Coffee and Things

You did it again. You went all the way to Davis Square and left your scone, cortado and nitro cold brew at home. Fortunately, Nine Bar Espresso is now open to provide you with all of those things. Another close call.
