The Weekender

Cougar Hunts, Rum and Fondue

The weekend respects your decision.

Thursday
First Cougar Hunt of 2010
SINGLE LADIES

First Cougar Hunt of 2010

We assume your year is off to a smashing start. Keep the streak alive with the first Boston Cougar Hunt of 2010, going down at Barlow's tonight. It's guerilla style, which means the bar itself isn't in on it, but simply the chosen ground for you to go for broke with well-aged women also looking to score. As always, pith helmets are welcome.

Jan 21, 7pm-12:30am, Barlow's, 241 A St, 617-338-2072, RSVP here

Saturday
Midnight Burlesque at Coolidge
MOULIN ROUGE

Midnight Burlesque at Coolidge

A midnight burlesque show is unusual in these parts, and this special one-night-only event will feature the naughty thespians from the hit play The Slutcracker. Look for an especially saucy group number by a band of garter-packing women known as the Bitches of Destiny. The name says it all.

Jan 23, 11:55pm-2am, $20-$25, 290 Harvard St, 617-734-2501, tickets here

Sunday
50% Off at Stel's
BLAZER

50% Off at Stel's

January is a good time to reflect on your wardrobe, assessing what stays and what goes. Should you decide you need to replenish your threads, Stel's is knocking 50% off all winter menswear, including button-downs and blazers from Nom de Guerre, outerwear from Robert Geller and knits from Yigal Azrouël.

Jan 24, noon-6pm, Stel's, 334 Newbury St, 617-262-3348

The Return of Fondue Sundays
DAIRY

The Return of Fondue Sundays

Sundays are meant for two things: the Pats and fondue. So in light of recent pigskin-related follies, let's focus on the cheese. Beacon Hill Bistro has brought back Fondue Sundays, where you can devour rustic breads, vegetables and small potatoes dipped in boiling-hot, Swiss-style pots of cheesy goodness.

Monday
Somerville Goes Rum'n
MIXED BATCH

Somerville Goes Rum'n

The French say a day without wine is like a day without sunshine. Well, a Monday without rum ain't no peach, either. So Redbones is hosting a tasting featuring barbecued apps and half-ounce samples of rum from the Berkshires, Venezuela and Brazil. A half-ounce might not sound like much, but trust us, they add up quickly.

Jan 25, 5-7pm, $15, Redbones BBQ, 55 Chester St, 617-628-2200
