Select Oyster Bar @ Colonnade Rooftop Pool
The rooftop pool at The Colonnade Hotel has a lot of sexy awesomeness to it, sure. But add the likes of Select Oyster Bar, who will be popping up for one night only with admission includes pool access, one free drink, unlimited oysters, lobster rolls, and other lavish treats from the sea, and it may be the best $15 you’ll spend this week.
The Colonnade. 120 Huntington Ave., Boston. 5:30-7:30pm/21+/$15. For more information, visit selectboston.com
Pat Falco: Untitled Art “Show” Thing
You might recognize Pat Falco as the artist who does our The Strangerer comic each week. As it happens, he’s also a damn fine artist (you may have even seen his art-as-newspaper-boxes around the city). So if you like him in the Dig, you’ll like him in a gallery, so hop on the ferry to P-Town in the name of local art.
Room 68. 377 Commercial St., Provincetown. 7-10pm/all ages/FREE. For more information, visit room68online.com
Friday Night Flicks: Soul Power
For the month of June, Fridays at the Lawn on D belong to the sunset and free outdoor flicks. This Friday is no exception. A live set from Eli “Paperboy” Reed will precede a screening of the music documentary Soul Power, which details the world of ’70s R&B (BB King and James Brown, anyone?). You’ll have to pay for the food trucks and full bar, though.
The Lawn on D. 420 D St., Boston. 8pm/all ages/FREE. For more information, visit lawnond.com

Meet The Makers: Hibernaculum
The word “hibernaculum” refers to a place where a creature seeks shelter in winter.

Get hip to the more discreet art galleries in the area, like Panopticon Gallery, which is just inside Hotel Commonwealth in Kenmore. Its current exhibition channels the essence of the music-obsessed teenagers with photographs of Jimi Hendrix all over their bedroom walls, except way bigger and better. Luckily for you, the gallery is open 24/7 and will be showing incredible photographs of your favorite “guitar heroes” until September. Rock on.
Panopticon Gallery. 502c Comm Ave., Boston. 24 hours/all ages/$10. For more information, visit panopticongallery.com
