Things to do for August 06, 2009

The Weekender

Whiskey, Weeds and Woodstock

The weekend, distilled.

Thursday
Woodstock's Poster Guy at IPG
SUMMER OF LOVE

Woodstock's Poster Guy at IPG

If you want to meet the artist behind the original 1969 Woodstock poster (sort of like the Mona Lisa for hippies), head to International Poster tonight. The dude will be signing copies of the original as well as a newly designed 40th-anniversary version during his only Boston stop. No word if Limp Bizkit will be on hand to initiate a riot like in '99.

Free, 5-7pm, Aug 6, IPG, 205 Newbury St, 617-375-0076, RSVP here

Tonight: Free Whiskey in Somerville
WHISKEY PARK

Tonight: Free Whiskey in Somerville

Whiskey maven Rick Wasmund offers a tasting of his American single malt and rye whiskey tonight, along with a home whiskey kit for sale in-store. The kit includes a lightly charred white oak barrel and either his single malt or rye spirit with a stand and bung (cork), for all you budding Jack Daniels out there.

Friday
Masa Pretends It's Still Restaurant Week
EXTENSION

Masa Pretends It's Still Restaurant Week

We lost most of the summer to rain, sadly. So to maintain your good spirits, Masa is keeping its Restaurant Week lunch and dinner menus (and deals) alive all through August. Plan accordingly, and you'll be able to avoid deal-seeking suburbanites flanking your every move.

All August at Masa, 439 Tremont St, 617-338-8884, see the menus here

Southie Kickball Party at Murphy's Law
BALLERS

Southie Kickball Party at Murphy's Law

Murphy's Law is throwing a party on Friday for the MA Riptide—Southie's venerable division of the World Adult Kickball Association—and luckily you don't have to be Irish nor carry a heavy Boston accent to come down. Sign up for the fall season or just have a few pints of Guinness and relive your glory days in PE.

6:30pm-close, Aug 7, Murphy's Law, 837 Summer St, 617-269-6667

Saturday
Snoop Dogg Comes to Mansfield
DOPE SEATS

Snoop Dogg Comes to Mansfield

The good news is there are still some last-minute tickets available for Snoop Dogg and friends' aptly named Blazed and Confused Tour outdoor show Saturday night in Mansfield, featuring reggae's favorite son, Stephen Marley. The bad news is you probably won't be able to wear your concert clothes to work ever again.

$13-$30, 6pm, Aug 8, Comcast Center, 885 S. Main St, 508-339-2333, tickets here
