TIK PERFORMANCE

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.

THE LATE SHOW

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.

Fri-Sat, 10:30pm-midnight, Tasting Counter, 14 Tyler St, Somerville, 617-299-6362

Saturday
“I Have a Patio Now” —Daddy Jones Bar
JONES TO PICK

“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.

Patio now open, Daddy Jones Bar, 525 Medford St, Somerville, 617-690-9095

Sunday
Pizza and Break Dancing in Chinatown
SHO AND TELL

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.
—Stoked pizza.
—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.
