The Weekender: April 27-29

Happy Friday, friends! We are  so excited to greet the weekend. We’re actually headed to upstate New York this weekend to celebrate Melissa’s upcoming wedding with a fantastic shower. Although we won’t be local this weekend, there are so many great things happening. Here are our top picks!

24 Hours at South Street Diner. Join local filmmakers (and husband/wife team), Tom and Melissa Dowler of Long Haul Films, for the showing of their documentary this Saturday evening. Just thinking about it, we’re dreaming of late night grilled cheese and pancakes.

It’s a Birthday Party! Forty Winks, the sweet Harvard Square lingerie boutique, is celebrating their birthday this weekend. Join them for an Open House this Saturday from 10am-8pm and receive 20% off when you purchase two or more items.

Intercontinental Wine Battle. Wine Connextion will be crowning a pinot noir king at a complimentary tasting tomorrow afternoon. Be part of the action and cast your vote! And enjoy a little wine while you are there, too!

Brookline Foodies. Food trucks are coming to Brookline! We would love to enjoy a delicious nutella crepe this Saturday morning. What about you? Sidenote: tomorrow is the last day The Otherside Cafe will be serving up delicious vegetarian-friendly food and cheap beer. Make sure you stop in for a shot of wheatgrass to say your goodbye!

Set Your Sails. Free sailing this weekend on the Boston Harbor! The Boston Sailing Center is happy to host their free sailing Open House tomorrow. Also, Courageous Sailing, a nonprofit located in Charlestown Navy Yard, will be hosting an Open House this weekend, which includes a barbecue. Grab your friends and SPF!
