50-Cent Tapas and Free Salsa at Masa

It's been a long week and there's still one more day to go, so treat yourself to several rounds of top-notch tapas, all priced at a mere half-dollar tonight at Masa. If you've still got energy after all the Jalapeno Corn Fritters and Pork Empanadas, you can burn it off with free salsa lessons at 10:30pm, or just more empanadas.

5pm-1am, Nov 19, Masa, 439 Tremont St, 617-338-8884

Amplifying Your Ski Jones

Amplifying Your Ski Jones

Instead of popping in Aspen Extreme for the zillionth time while prepping for ski season this year, head to the House of Blues Friday for Re:Session, a crazy new HD ski and snowboard documentary making its only Boston stop. Plus, there are free Mt. Snow tickets for the first 500 in, making your ski itch even itchier.

$20, doors 6pm, Nov 21, HOB, 15 Lansdowne St, 888-693-2583, tickets here

A Night of Partying in Hats
HAT-TASTIC

A Night of Partying in Hats

Lose the Sox hat and don your favorite Johnny Depp-inspired fedora for Saturday's inaugural Boston Hat Revolution meet up. The party starts with drinks at 7pm at 29 Newbury, moves over to Clink at 9pm, and who knows where the head-covered fun will end. (Note: please, no visors.)

Sunday
Raising a Glass to a Bar Legend
RESPECT

Raising a Glass to a Bar Legend

Clio's weeklong tribute to Prohibition mixologist William Boothby ends on Sunday, meaning it's your last chance for era-correct drinks in honor of the original author of The American Bartender (it's the barman's Catcher in the Rye). Savor the gratis rock shrimp-tempura bites while you sip bourbon-based Boothby Cocktails and think about all the man did for your freedom.

5:30-10pm, Nov 22, Clio, 370 Commonwealth Ave, 617-536-7200

The Ski Expo to End All Ski Expos
EXPO-SED

The Ski Expo to End All Ski Expos

Sunday's also the last day of the Boston Ski and Snowboard Expo, where you can find blowout deals on everything from skis and snowboards to jackets and lift tickets. Try not to get distracted by the live music, freestyle demos, super-attractive ski company reps or the ski lodge serving Sam Adams.
