Good Life Bar kicks off its new El Barrio Brunch, featuring DJ-spun beats of rare Latin tracks from the '70s and '80s to go with the coconut-crusted French toast, Paisa Plates (eggs, rice, steak and plantains) and Buena Vidas, a rum drink served in coconut shells. And depending on how big your Friday was, you may just start salsa dancing at random.
Things to do for September 10, 2009
Human Peacocks, Dr. Who and ’70s Brunch
The weekend wants you to relax.
After all that red meat you consumed last weekend, you're probably looking for a change of pace, so swing by Legal Seafoods on Saturday for oysters by the bushel and trios of Belvedere vodka shooters. Slurping methods will be taught, and depending on how you react to vodka, that could be referring to the sidecars or the mollusks.
Head to the Brattle on Saturday for the last night of their Hooked on Who series featuring a 1978 episode of Dr. Who, and relive those days growing up watching its low-budget sci-fi effects while sick from school, and loopy from too much Robitussin. With beer and wine available, the experience may not be all that different this time around.
You'll want to see what all the fuss is about on Sunday as 150,000 people turn Cambridge into a raucous outdoor party. Be one of them and graze from the Afro-Caribbean food stands, samba to the steel-drum performing bands or try to chat up one of the human peacocks scantily dressed in traditional plumage. If you're lucky, they bite.
