Hungry Mother Closing
Call this more of a month-long PSA: Hungry Mother, that longtime staple of Southern-inspired chow (via James Beard award-winning chef Barry Maiden), is closing its doors a month from now on July 3. So if you’ve been and want a last helping of Wild Virginia Catfish with cornbread, get moving. If you haven’t, and you suddenly see a rash of people running in packs and crying out for cornbread, now you know why.
Hungry Mother. 233 Cardinal Medeiros Ave., Cambridge. For more information, visit hungrymothercambridge.com
Taste of Somerville 2015
Your Wednesdays typically don’t involve sampling from over 60 of Somerville’s most awesome restaurants (Kirkland Tap and Trotter, Highland Kitchen, Saloon), bars (The Independent, The Burren), and breweries (Aeronaut, Somerville) for two hours of gluttony and supporting the local business. At least not in one place. But your average Wednesday also doesn’t involve the Taste of Somerville, where a ticket will get you all that. Food comas free of charge.
Taste of Somerville. Davis Sq., Somerville. 5:30-7:30pm/all ages/$50. For more information, visit tasteofsomerville.com
Boston Bit Fest 3: おたくLike Me
Boston Bit Fest. You know it. You love it. Besides the nerd-tastic partying, there are local retailers and vendors (High Energy Vintage, Replay’d, Dapper Pixel gaming-inspired apparel). And they’re back with a special two-night celebration at Night Shift Brewing in Everett. All the vintage arcade games are back, with new food trucks, “Best of the Worst Fighting Game Challenge” hosted by the Run Button Youtubers, and, of course, suds from Night Shift.
NightShift Brewery. 87 Santilli Hwy., Everett. 5-11pm/21+/$5 donation. Also open 6.5. For more information, visit bostonbitfest.com
Glitterotica 2: Revenge of the Glitter
Once glitter is on you or in your clothes, it’s never coming out. Fact. Which is probably why the Glitterotica 2 show leans towards a lack of clothing with the burlesque performances, while the dance, drag, spoken word performances just do their thing as well. Live music courtesy of Walter Sickert and others, and there’s even live drawings via Zombie Romance—which, if that’s an indicator of what’s to come with the drawing, we’re already a fan.
Oberon. 2 Arrow St., Cambridge. 8pm/18+/$15-30. For more information, visit americanrepertorytheatre.org
Soggy Po’Boys Sundays at Belly
They say a couple sawbucks can’t get you much these days. And whoever “they” are, they’re right. Unless you’re talking about Sundays now through September at Belly and neighboring sister spot The Blue Room in Kendall. There, $16 gets you on the patio for a choice of bites (bluefish po’boys or Andouille sausage) and drink (tall boys, Missa’s Voodoo Punch), and to catch the live eight-piece NOLA band, and whatever other adventures such things may lead to.
Belly + The Blue Room. 1 Kendall Sq., Cambridge. 4-9pm/21+/$16. For more information, visit bellywinebar.com
