Things to do for February 11, 2010

The Weekender

$1 PBRs, Bollywood and a V-Day Pub Crawl

The weekend thought the storm was a bit of a fail.

Thursday
Anti-V-Day at Estragon
DRINKING

Anti-V-Day at Estragon

You'll have plenty of time this weekend to shell out for romantic dinners. Bohemian tapas house Estragon knows this, and has decided to set your Thursday night up with music, dancing, complimentary wings, sliders and Lamb Empanadas, and $1 PBRs for an "Anti-V-Day" event. Which is just a fun way to say "free apps and cheap beer."

Feb 11, 10pm-1am, Estragon, 700 Harrison Ave, 617-266-0443

Central Bottle Goes Sake for a Night

Central Bottle Goes Sake for a Night

Central Bottle is known as a wine shop. Not one to be pigeonholed, they've created a one-night sake bar, replete with a sake education ambassador, who would probably hold a UN position if boozing was allowed. You'll want to graze on edamame and tuna sashimi as you sample $4 to $6 sakes from the vaunted Ichishima Brewery.

Feb 11, 5-9pm, Central Bottle, 196 Mass Ave, Cambridge, 617-225-0040

UD HOOKUP: Bring a printout of the Weekender and land a free bowl of edamame.

Saturday
V-Day = Reason to Have a Pub Crawl
CRAWL

V-Day = Reason to Have a Pub Crawl

No one said there must be a connection between a holiday and the events celebrating it. So, there's a giant V-Day pub crawl through downtown this Saturday, whisking you through 11 bars over 12 hours. It's free to crawl, but with a $5 donation you can land gratis apps at different bars along the way. Then again, food may just slow you down.

A Bollywood V-Day Party
INDIA

A Bollywood V-Day Party

If you're rocking it solo this V-Day, fear not. On Sunday, Diva Lounge is throwing a mega Bollywood-themed bash for all the single men and ladies of Boston (and their friends), packed with DJ-spun Bhangra beats and gratis apps like Indian chicken tenders and spicy samosas (potato pastries) the first hour. Slumdog dance numbers encouraged.

Feb 14, 9pm-2am, $12, Diva Lounge, 248 Elm St, 617-629-4963, tickets here

Monday
Monday Meat-on-a-Stick Deal
SKEWERED

Monday Meat-on-a-Stick Deal

There are many ways to honor the American President on Monday. You could pore over biographies of JFK, LBJ and JKP (James K. Polk), or you could head to Casablanca for their skewered meat deal, where you can savor three skewers loaded with the meat of your choice (beef, chicken, lamb, shrimp) and three dipping sauces for $5. It's definitely what Lincoln would have done.

Mon-Tues, 5-10pm, Casablanca, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge, 617-876-0999
