The Weekender

Chili, Toboggans and a Lingerie Lunch

The weekend thinks the Pats should try harder next year.

Thursday
Half-Off Apps at Ecco
THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT

Half-Off Apps at Ecco

It's been a long week, and it's not quite over yet. Luckily tomorrow ushers in the weekend, and if you head to Ecco in East Boston right now, you can usher in the ushering with $4-$5 appetizers like Shortrib Shumai, Ahi Tuna Tartare and Grilled Lamb Rib Chops. Amazingly, this deal is good seven days a week.

Every day, 4-6pm, Ecco, 107 Porter St, 617-561-1112, see the menu

Friday
Brasserie JO's Lingerie Lunch
NAKED LUNCH

Brasserie JO's Lingerie Lunch

Lunch. Good when it gets you out of the office, better when numerous half-naked women strut around you in slinky lingerie. The latter is happening tomorrow at Brasserie JO, where they'll be complementing your meal with a no-holds-barred lingerie exhibition. This is far superior to eating at your desk and watching YouTube.

Feb 5, noon-2pm, Brasserie JO at The Colonnade, 120 Huntington Ave, 617-425-3240

UD HOOKUP: Bring a printout of the Weekender and land a complimentary appetizer.

Saturday
National Toboggan Championships
SNOW DAY

National Toboggan Championships

This weekend marks the start of the National Toboggan Championships (finally). Should you not be competing Saturday, you can still catch the action, hit the slopes (tubing included) and take in a chili showdown. We recommend sniffing out house parties with the locals by staying for the night, unless you plan to be back in Camden soon.

Brunch Starts at Sportello
IT BEGINS

Brunch Starts at Sportello

Fort Point Channel isn't exactly awash in numerous brunch options, so we're pleased to inform you that Sportello is blowing open its brunch doors every weekend starting this Saturday. Look forward to Pain Perdu (aka French toast), Semolina Pancakes and Bloody Marys created with a secret recipe borrowed from Drink downstairs. How neighborly.

Weekends starting Feb 6, 10:30am-4:30pm, Sportello, 348 Congress St, 617-737-1234

Sunday
Super Bowls of Chili
COOK-OFF

Super Bowls of Chili

Colts fans. Saints fans. Who cares. At the end of the day, we're all one people...who love killer chili. If you head to Somerville on Sunday, you can take in the majesty that is the chili cook-off at Olde Magoun's Saloon. Enter your own chili (a gallon should do it) and land a free T-shirt, or just eat a ton of chili for three hours. Your call.
