The Weekender

New Pizza, the Bruins and a Patio Brunch Bash

The weekend is cool with August in April.

Thursday
1 New Perk

1 New Perk

This week's perk puts you on a private jet to Aspen, with a hotel room, a new wardrobe and four days of feasting waiting for you at the other end. All you need is a little luck—and a ski vest wouldn't hurt.

GOOD WOOD

Davis Square's Long-Awaited Pizzeria Opens

For months now, you've heard whispers and secrets about a new enoteca in Somerville ready to dish out wood-fired pizzas with Naples-imported dough. We're not sure if all the rumors are true, but Pizzeria Posto opens tonight with the aforementioned pies, plates of Braised Spring Rabbit Pasta and a good atmosphere for post-work libations.

Opens tonight at 5pm, Pizzeria Posto, 187 Elm St, Somerville, 617-625-0600

Friday
Drinking for the Environment
FIRST BITES

Drinking for the Environment

Tomorrow you have four hours to feast on organic wines and small plates from 12 local restaurants, including Taranta, Prana Café and the Fireplace. Technically, it's part of a sustainable living expo, so don't show up in your military-grade Hummer unless it's a hybrid.

Went to a Pub Crawl and a Hockey Game Broke Out

If the recent 80-degree temps have you juiced for hockey (or just beer), there's a massive Bruins pub crawl near the Garden on Saturday. Slosh potential is extremely high: $55 lands you bar bites at Porters with fellow pregame revelers, a ticket to the actual game (1pm), a free round at the Greatest Bar after, and if it's like previous years, a few former Bruins boozing alongside you. Get your Cam Neely one-liners ready.

Apr 10, $55, starts at 11am at Porters, 173 Portland St, 617-742-7678, tickets here

Sunday
Lobby's First Patio Brunch Party
HOW REFRESHING

Lobby's First Patio Brunch Party

You can have a quiet, reserved brunch this weekend. Or you can go to Lobby, which is throwing its first Refresh brunch party out on the patio. Your $20 buffet (the usual parade of French toast, bacon and eggs) includes a mimosa, and a Bloody Mary bar and DJ will ensure there's at least a shred of chaos in the air.

Apr 11, 11am-4pm, $20, Lobby, 131 Broad St, 617-261-5353, RSVP here

Monday
Biltmore's New Beer Tasting
30 WILL GET YOU 10

Biltmore's New Beer Tasting

If you're forced to spend Monday at the office (those sick days go quickly), you can lick your wounds after work at the Biltmore's new beer tasting. Thirty dollars gets you five cold ones from the Cape Ann Brewing Company (including a limited-release double IPA, whatever the hell that is) and five apps like Pulled Pork Sliders. You: 1. Mondays: 0.

Apr 12, 7:30-10pm, $30, Biltmore Grill, 1205 Chestnut St, Newton, 617-527-2550, RSVP here
