Things to do for September 10, 2015

The Weekender

A Made-in-the-USA Fest, BBQ Lemonade and... Butter

Weekend and inches.

Thursday
BBQ Lemonade and Bulletproof Coffee
BEAT GENERATION

BBQ Lemonade and Bulletproof Coffee

Will Gilson of Puritan & Company just opened a juice stand in Kendall called Beatnik Beverage Company. There are juice things, like BBQ Lemonade with lemon, lime, agave and activated charcoal. And there are non-juice things, like kombucha on tap and Bulletproof coffee. Non-juice game: strong.

Friday
Bon Me Does Fried Chicken Now
BON WITH THE WIND

Bon Me Does Fried Chicken Now

So Bon Me has a new location in North Cambridge. That’s not big news. But this Bon Me is the first and only to serve things like Bon Me Dogs and Japanese-style fried chicken. That’s big news.

Now open, Bon Me, 201 Alewife Brook Pkwy, Cambridge, 617-945-2822

Saturday
Two Days of American-Made Majesty
TAKE THE FIELD

Two Days of American-Made Majesty

If you want to do your country good this weekend, you can: 1) rescue a wounded bald eagle and nurse it back to health, or 2) welcome the return of made-in-the-USA-palooza American Field, back with 36 new vendors and bacon from the Bacon Truck. America. Bacon. You’ve got this.

Sunday
Seven Chefs. One Brunch.
BLUE PERIOD

Seven Chefs. One Brunch.

Sad story with a happy ending: a fire temporarily closed the Blue Room. But then chefs from State Park, Fairsted Kitchen and more decided to get together and cook a brunch benefiting its staff at Commonwealth, where you’ll eat seven family-style dishes like fried-chicken sliders and pork pozole. Happy.

Sep 13, 10am-2pm, $30, Commonwealth, 11 Broad Canal Way, Cambridge, reserve at 617-945-7030

Tuesday
This Is a Champagne and Butter Dinner
BUTTER UP

This Is a Champagne and Butter Dinner

Artisanal hand-churned butter is a thing. So much of a thing that Menton’s staging an entire dinner dedicated to the butter of Vermont-based creamery Animal Farm, with a champagne reception and a five-course dinner that includes shellfish butter soup and buttermilk semifreddo. Good for you, butter.

Sep 15, reception 6:30pm, dinner 7:30pm, $225, Menton, 354 Congress St, reserve at 617-737-0099, see the menu
