The Weekender: July 15-17

If you celebrated, we hope you had a wonderful Bastille Day yesterday! The celebration continues throughout this weekend, too! Here are our 5 picks for a great summer weekend.

Race for MS and Girl Power. (Yeah!) Cyclying champions Robin Farina and Addyson Albershardt, who are part of team NOW and Novartis for MS, will be in Concord on Saturday for the National MS Society’s Bike MS ride. To learn more about the ride and fight for MS, visit Think NOW, Phil Keoghan’s (of The Amazing Race fame) personal mission. To donate, cheer on the cyclists or for more information visit the National MS Society’s page dedicated to tomorrow’s ride.

Vive La France! Although Bastille Day was yesterday, the celebrations have just begun. Tonight marks the 36th Annual French Cultural Center’s Bastille Day Party. Join the crowd, as they close off a portion of Marlborough Street for dancing and partying. There will be live francophone music, french drinks and food and of course lots of amusement to go around. Visit the French Cultural Center’s website for details and ticket prices.

Bring on the (Root) Beer. This Sunday at 6:30pm, join Tryst and Tower Root Beer for an exclusive exclusive Root Beer Dinner (yum!), celebrating the return of Tower’s 97 year old classic soda recipe after a thirty year hiatus. The menu includes mouth-watering dishes like Tower Root Beer and stout braised beef short ribs and of course the ever faithful root beer float. The menu is $29 prix fixe and reservations can be made (and are required) by calling Tryst at 781-7641-2227.

Calling All Children-At-Heart! If you’re moseying around Newbury Street and need a little pick-me up, drop by Asana or M Bar and Lounge at the Mandarin Oriental. They’ve just introduced their $5 popsicles and push pop summer special. With enticing flavor combinations such as mascarpone & coffee dipped in dark chocolate, lemon & raspberry and green apple & mandarin, you better believe you’ll see us there!

New Eats. FORUM Restaurant just opened this past week on Boylston Street where the beloved Vox Populi once stood. Featuring progressive american cuisine and a great cocktail list, what’s not to love? If you stop in for a visit, be sure to let us know how you like it.
