    • Assuming you love meatballs as much as the folks at Beacon Street's An Tua Nua, you'll want to pop in tonight to check out their new restaurant-inside-a-bar concept that's been appropriately dubbed... wait for it... A Meatball Joint. Consider your curiosity piqued

    • Friday:
      • Skipping town for the holiday weekend? If you're flying out of Logan, be sure to hit iconic Durgin Park's new Terminal E outpost for a pre-flight pint. See it to believe it
      • No joke, rap legends Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick are performing Friday at The Wilbur. And somehow tix are still available. That is also not a joke. Get yours here

      • Saturday:
        • Well that didn't take long. Recently retooled Barrio Cantina has officially gotten into the weekend brunch biz, slinging soft-poached eggs w/ spiced duck & green chile hash among other deliciousness. See it all here
        • A North End favorite from those two sisters you see everywhere about town, Nebo is moving to Atlantic Wharf. The last supper in their current North Washington St location is Saturday night. Be there
        • As you naturally enjoy inviting accomplished chefs into your home to cook fancy meals for you and your friends, you're probably already familiar with Kitchensurfing. But did you know they're hosting a series of Un-Restaurant Week private tastings that includes Saturday's "Light My Fire" with Chef Dane Tullock? Oh, you did? Well, either way, see the full lineup here.

        • Sunday:
          • Why spend Easter making idle small talk with Mom's new boyfriend when you can take your GF on a day-trip to oh-so-scenic Newburyport instead, and hit just-opened Brine -- descriptively billed as “New England’s first oyster, crudo, and chops bar”. Appreciate for yourself
          • Because apparently not everyone shares your affinity for the Easter Bunny, Dorchester's Tavolo is celebrating the holiday with an a la carte brunch complete with braised rabbit ragu over housemade gnocchi. Spy the full menu

          • Monday:
            • Don't let the Monday blues get you down -- spend your lunch hour daydreaming about trekking the globe at Grand Circle Gallery's just-opened vintage travel poster exhibit. Catch a preview before heading over
            • Back Bay’s Red Lantern is rocking a seven-buck menu every Monday night that includes spicy salmon dragon rolls w/ red miso & chile glaze and Peking duck spring rolls. The more you know
            • Staring Monday with a Friends of Harpoon Tap Takeover, Olde Magoun's Saloon is going to rotate over 100+ IPAs throughout the month of April. Score the deets

            • Tuesday:
              • And speaking of suds, hit Fenway's Church Tuesday night for their first annual Left Hand Brewery Five-Course Pairing Dinner complete w/ beer-braised pork belly and chicken & crawfish terrine. Hold your spot now
