The Weekender

Vodka Slushies, Meat Buffets and Gooooaaaal!

The weekend is all weekend.

Thursday
Charcuterie Buffet at Sel De La Terre
ALL YOU CAN MEAT

Charcuterie Buffet at Sel De La Terre

It's Thursday. It's been a long week. And what better way to get ready for a fast-approaching Friday than to eat all the salt-cured pork products you can handle. Stop by Sel De La Terre after work tonight for a charcuterie buffet at the downstairs bar, and imbibe the porcine pleasantries.

$10 buffet, 5-7pm, Thurs-Fri, Sel De La Terre, 774 Boylston St, 617-266-8800

dbar Debuts iPod Thursdays
YOU TUNES

dbar Debuts iPod Thursdays

If you've ever thought, "I could be 100 times the DJ this clown is" while out drinking with friends, you now have a way to prove it. Dbar rolls out its iThursdays, allowing you to bring in your iPod with a playlist already set up, and their DJ will plug it in and spin your tastes for all to hear. Only drawback: now if the selection is lame, it's your fault.

Thursdays starting at 9pm, dbar, 1236 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester, 617-265-4490

Friday
Acupuncture Now at the Langham
PINNED

Acupuncture Now at the Langham

Getting impaled with needles in a hotel isn't just for rock stars anymore. The year-old spa at the Langham Hotel has just added traditional Chinese healing methods cupping and acupuncture to its menu of services, making it the first hotel spa in Boston to offer them. Try it out and let us know what it's like, as we've never really been "needle" people.

Now available, Chuan Body, 250 Franklin St, 617-451-1900, reservations here

Saturday
Vodka Slushy Party at JA Stats
SLUSH FUN

Vodka Slushy Party at JA Stats

Eating slush puppies in the summer brings back warm memories of yesteryear, but these slushies are the kind that make you lose memories after too many. JA Stats throws a Summer Slush Vodka bash Saturday, featuring DJ'd tunes and spiked slushies made with the good stuff: Richie's Italian Ice from Everett.

No cover, 10pm-close, July 25, JA Stats, 99 Broad St (near Franklin), 617-357-8287

Sunday
AC Milan vs. Inter Milan at Gillette
FUTBOL

AC Milan vs. Inter Milan at Gillette

Two of Europe's best soccer teams square off in Foxboro Sunday as AC Milan (you know, David Beckham's other team) takes on cross-town rival Inter Milan. This is sort of like if there were two NFL teams in Boston, and they decided to play each other in Italy one day. Expect hot tempers, trash talk and a few magic moments from Ronaldinho.

$35-$125, 5pm, July 26, Gillette Stadium, 1 Patriot Pl, 800-745-3000, tickets here
