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.
Things to do for August 06, 2009
Whiskey, Weeds and Woodstock
The weekend, distilled.
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.
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.
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.
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.
