The Weekender

The weekend would stay at Copley even though it lives in the city.

If you asked us, we'd happily give you the shirt off our back—but since you haven't, we're offering 35 percent off a custom-fitted shirt, courtesy of the Brits at Brass Bones. And if the shirt fits…

New Daily Menu at 51 Lincoln
PIG NEWTON

New Daily Menu at 51 Lincoln

The thought of tackling the pike during traffic to get to Newton means there needs to be a very good reason to go there. Here's ours: 51 Lincoln rolls out its new menu, which, with the exception of three constants, will be completely new every day. We hear the chef is working with a whole hog on Friday, so get your EZ Passes on the windshield now.

Opens at 5pm daily, 51 Lincoln, 51 Lincoln St, Newton Highlands, 617-965-3100

Saturday
Brunch Every Day at Vox Populi
MAPLE SYRUP

Brunch Every Day at Vox Populi

Throwing convention out the window, the Back Bay's Vox Populi is starting to serve brunch every day of the week. So now, a jonesing for pancakes on a Tuesday won't require being faced with a Waffle House or an IHOP as the sole options, unless it's 3am and you're already in one.

11am-4pm weekdays, 10am-4pm weekends, Vox, 755 Boylston St, 617-424-8300‎

Sunday
Whitest Kid at Middlesex Lounge
WHITE OUT

Whitest Kid at Middlesex Lounge

It's always good to laugh as much as you can before Monday. Close out the weekend with a white-wash of bawdy comedy in Cambridge, as a mishmash of talent from This American Life, CollegeHumor and more perform at the Middlesex Lounge, hosted by Sam Brown of the Whitest Kids U'Know.

Monday
Kung Fu Flicks with a Dash of Metal
FU

Kung Fu Flicks with a Dash of Metal

This Monday, the Squealing Pig launches the innovative "Spin Kick Mondays," which entails 30 minutes of heavy metal before a flurry of kung fu movies until closing time. This way, you can watch Jackie Chan get his teeth knocked out just as yours bite into the Pig's signature melted Mars Bar sandwich.

Tuesday
Official Bastille Day Party at the Liberty
FRENCHING

Official Bastille Day Party at the Liberty

The French don't need an excuse to drink wine, so when there actually is one, you probably should be a part of it as well. With several hundred descending on the French stronghold for the day, you'll want to head to the biggest and Frenchiest Official Bastille Day bash being thrown at the Liberty Hotel in Beacon Hill. Berets not included.

BOOK IT
