Things to do for October 22, 2009

The Weekender

'80s Night, New Brunch and Partying in a Bike Shop

The weekend is switching gears.

Thursday
Azure Becomes City Table
TABLE SERVICE

Azure Becomes City Table

Keeping in line with the current trend of scaling back the high-end, fine-dining spots in the Hub, City Table replaces Azure at the Lenox Hotel. The more casual, lower-priced restaurant features a totally new menu that's available until 1am every night—which is key when those midnight Cuban sandwich cravings strike.

Now open, City Table, 65 Exeter St, 617-262-3473, see the new menu here

Friday
Superb Bike Shop Opening Party
GEAR UP

Superb Bike Shop Opening Party

Two years of orchestrated chaos went into launching Superb Bicycle, and as would be expected, they're throwing a bash to celebrate finally being done. Head to the store Friday night for gratis PBRs and DJ tunes, and enter one of the raffles for free gear.

No cost, 8-11pm, Oct 23, Superb Bicycle, 842 Beacon St, 617-236-0752

Saturday
Ted Baker Opens on Newbury Street
MEET YOUR BAKER

Ted Baker Opens on Newbury Street

London-based retailer Ted Baker opens its first Boston store Saturday, and the interior alone is worth the trek. Shelves are freshly stocked with 2009 fall/winter lines, and there's a funky Mad Hatter tea-party theme adorning the walls.

Opens Oct 24, Ted Baker, 201 Newbury St, 617-450-8339, see the goods here

Ode to '80s at Revolution Rock Bar
PAYING HOMAGE

Ode to '80s at Revolution Rock Bar

Cultural trends move in 20-year cycles, which explains the plethora of '80s-themed nights permeating the social landscape as of late. Revolution Rock Bar joins the fun Saturday, with era-correct DJ music and prizes for those brave enough to rock the big-hair look.

Sunday
Brunch Begins at Mistral
FRENCH TOAST

Brunch Begins at Mistral
