Event of the Week: The Salty Pig's Porkapalooza Debuting Monday, this inaugural monthly culinary cage match pits chefs from around town against the crew at the Pig (Chefs Kevin O'Donnell & Michael Lombardi, Jr.) in a competition to make the best swine dish from one common mystery ingredient. Even better, you get to eat it all family-style and vote! This week, Puritan & Co.'s Will Gilson enters the ring to work his magic on none other than a pig's head. Don't miss all the action -- score your ticket now
Thursday, August 1st Assuming you enjoy discussing the intricacies of the Star Trek series whilst watching women disrobe, then it's probably safe to say you'll dig Talk Nerdy To Me, a geeky, two-night-only, Con-meets-burlesque show going down at Harvard's OBERON. See a video preview; snag a ticket
Friday, August 2nd Enjoy a well-deserved beverage after work on the just-opened patio at Nebo, the North End Italian joint (from those two sisters whom you always see behind the bench at Celtics' home games) that recently relocated to Atlantic Wharf. And while we're on the subject of patios, there are FOURTEEN (!!!) other new ones that've opened this Summer. See them all here!
Saturday, August 3rd As you no doubt will likely already be on the Cape, swing by the Barnstable Fairgrounds for Naukabout Beer Company's annual all-day celebration of suds, complete w/ a beer pavilion, Island Creek oysters, and two stages of live tunes. Score all the deets (and your tix) before heading over
Sunday, August 4th And on your way back, do not pass "Go" (or Hingham, at least) without popping into Wahlburger for their just-unveiled Surf 'n' Turf Bacon Burger, a 5oz patty piled high with Provolone, lemon chive mayo, heirloom tomatoes, and, you guessed, fresh lobster meat. Such a good idea
Monday, August 5th About to get booted from that sweet Allston third-floor 1BR you share with eight Danish exchange students? Not to worry: hit recently launched Jumpshell (from the crew that brought you RentPrefs), and use your social networks to score a new sublet. Try it out here
