For three sugary hours tonight, PA's Lounge in Somerville becomes a frosting-filled cupcake mecca. Starting at 7pm, more than 15 local bakeries and 70 amateur bakers will be handing you free cupcakes of nearly every imaginable variety, from classic red velvets to chocolate bacon cupcakes. Just beware the cupcake sweats...
Things to do for April 15, 2010
Cupcakes, Foot Rubs and a Beer Summit
The weekend is lacing up its track shoes.
If partying amongst 200 beers from over 50 brewers is your idea of a good Friday (and it usually is), you'll want to check out the Beer Summit happening tomorrow at Park Plaza Castle. Forty bucks gets you through the door and 10 four-ounce samples in your hands, with cash eats like pulled-pork sandwiches to keep all that beer company.
Pre-Marathon Foot Rubs in Allston
Attention runners, massage lovers and foot fetishists: the 379 Club in Allston is offering up 30-minute foot massages using Chinese and sports medicine for $15 on Sunday (that's half off the normal price). Readying you to rock all 26 miles (or the bars) on Monday.
An Indian-Chinese Hybrid Opens
Ever since you watched Gandhi while noshing on Chinese takeout, you've always loved a good Indian-Chinese pairing. And come Monday you'll have another chance to embrace one: Mumbai Chopstix opens on Newbury Street with Indochinese plates like Chilly Garlic Noodles, Meatball Manchurian and Calcutta-Style Szechuan Lobster.
Whether you're running or drinking on Monday, by Tuesday you're probably going to be ready for some hot red-meat action. KO Prime has a nearly too-good-to-be-true-sounding deal going on—for $29.95, you can savor all the lusciously tender prime rib you can fit in your stomach. Because sometimes it's not about moderation.
