Half-Off Apps at North 26

Just one day separates you from the weekend, and if you drop by North 26 tonight you can revel in the fact that Friday draws near while scoring half off their entire bar menu. Little JohnnyCorn Dogs and Truffled Mac'n'Cheese Shots for $2.50 may not bring some much-needed sunshine, but they tend to brighten your post-work night.

Sun-Thu, 4:30-6:30pm, North 26, 26 North St, 617-557-3640, see the menu

Sunday
Sorta Black-Tie Oscar Party at Lucca
ENVELOPE PLEASE...

Sorta Black-Tie Oscar Party at Lucca

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin aren't the only Oscar hosts with moxie. Lucca Back Bay is hosting a semiformal viewing party of the Academy Awards on Sunday, featuring gratis champagne, passed amuse-bouche, a swag raffle, bottles of vino and dinner gift certificates for the best dressed, before a DJ closes down the party. No speeches, please.

Mar 7, 7pm-1am, $25, Lucca Back Bay, 116 Huntington Ave, 617-247-2400

Monday
$2 Burgers at Sel de la Terre
SLIDERS

$2 Burgers at Sel de la Terre

Mondays are hard. Sel de la Terre knows this, so they have implemented a slider menu just for you, where $2 can land you juicy New England ground beef patties with Vermont cheddar, aioli and house-smoked bacon. Should you be in a croquette mood, those are up for grabs for $5 as well. Let the new week begin.

Tuesday
Free Beer, Burritos and Movies
CINEMA

Free Beer, Burritos and Movies

The Boston Underground Film Festival will soon land in Kendall Square. To ready you for the cinematic treasures to come, there's a preview party going down Tuesday, packed with free beer and burritos for the first hour, giveaways (DVDs, T-shirts, sex toys...the usual), and some short films and trailers from the upcoming festival. It's like Sundance, only no Robert Redford.

45 Restaurants and You
TASTY

45 Restaurants and You

There is a direct relationship between the number of restaurants you dine at on any given night and your overall satisfaction. On Tuesday, you'll have 45 to sample from, including South End faves Masa, Toro, Stella and Mistral. And should VIP status be in the cards (as it normally is), you'll get early entry, gratis bubbly and access to the after-party at the Beehive.

Mar 9, 6-9:30pm, $95-$150, BCA, 539 Tremont St, 617-426-5000, tickets here
