Your Perks: 1) Dress socks. So many colorful dress socks, we stopped counting. 2) Handbags from a little label called Prada. Perhaps you know someone who might like one. 3) All the juices you need to close out summer in a strong, healthy, fruit-and-vegetable-forward way.
Things to do for August 20, 2015
A Tiki Party, a New Patio and Break Dancing
The weekend went that-a-way.
Two Ways to Tiki This Weekend
Two things. Both tiki things.
1) Brass Union is breaking out the torches and totem poles for a luau-themed patio soiree that most definitely involves pork cheek skewers and rum.
2) The Boston Shaker’s taking 25% off all their tiki gear through Labor Day.
Tiki sale: only a matter of time.
A New Late-Night Menu in a Brewery
It’s late. You’re on your last round at Aeronaut. You think about how great it would be if Tasting Counter were open to feed you miso-cured-duck sandwiches and stuffed crispy rice from a new no-reservations-required late-night menu. They must have read your inner monologue.
“I Have a Patio Now” —Daddy Jones Bar
This is a story about a cocktail bar that never had a patio. Then it had one. Then you showed up to it and whiled away the evening with lamb skewers and whiskey sours. Happy endings. They’re out there.
Pizza and Break Dancing in Chinatown
Shojo’s turning three, and they’re marking the occasion with a block party that includes:
—Live break dancing.
—Classic martial arts videos.
—The unveiling of their new mural.
—A raffle for a pair of James Young’s game sneakers.
Yeah, Shojo’s going through a phase.
Everything Hungry Mother Must Go
You’re still not over Hungry Mother. But perhaps you’d feel better if its sign were hanging in your living room. Great, because turns out, everything’s for sale—antiques, artwork by the owner, a draft beer tower. There’s also a cocktail party involved. As if it weren’t already hard enough to say goodbye.
