50% Off at Uniform

We've had a nice run with the warm weather this week, but all signs tell us there's another cool breeze about to blow. Take comfort knowing Uniform has reduced all fall/winter lines still in house to 50% off, which means you can do a little last-minute stocking up on outerwear, coats and hoodies. You can never have too many hooded garments.

Ongoing at Uniform, 511 Tremont St, 617-247-2360

Thursday
Iceland Comes to Boston
REYKJAVIK

Iceland Comes to Boston

As part of Boston's seven-day tribute to the low-temped beauty that is Iceland, Rustic Kitchen is hosting a famed chef from Reykjavik who'll be creating an asparagus-heavy menu starring salted cod, salmon and plenty of molecular gastro-wizardry. As far as we know, Icelandic asparagus has the same effect as American asparagus.

Saturday
Second Annual Spring Microbrew Fest
SUDS

Second Annual Spring Microbrew Fest

Celebrating the little guy making his way up the beer ladder is in our blood in Boston. (It's probably also in our livers.) So if you head to Ball Square Fine Wines on Saturday, you can savor samples of more than 40 different microbrews (People's Pint, Berkshire, Port Brewing Co.). Imbibe all of them for a healthy 80 ounces on the house.

Sunday
Bartenders on the Rise at Green Street
CATCH A DRINKING STAR

Bartenders on the Rise at Green Street

What if we told you Boston's best and brightest young bar gods were facing off on Sunday, and you were invited. Well, that's what's happening. Drink slingers from Deep Ellum, Eastern Standard, Craigie on Main and Green Street will present you with their tastiest craft drinks, with free punch and passed apps like Swedish Meatballs and Tuna Tartare. Monday might be tough, but it'll be worth it.

Sundays Are for Chicken and Waffles Again
POULTRY

Sundays Are for Chicken and Waffles Again

Known for a killer burger, the Metropolitan Club turns its gaze to the feathered protein on Sunday with the triumphant return of its Chicken Dinner Sundays poultry-athon. You'll choose your chicken treatment—buttermilk-fried, barbecued or whole roasted—as well as a strong running mate (mac and cheese or waffles). They'll even throw in a salad, but unfortunately you can't get that buttermilk-fried.
