HUB-WIDE — Monday is Memorial Day; the weekend is about all the men and women who serve our country, and especially the families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. But it's also about enjoying a long weekend with family and friends. Restaurants and bars around the city have specials for the occasion, of course. Check out Eater's recommendations here.
MENDON (The Burbs) — Perhaps you want to get out of the city this weekend. The Mendon Twin Drive-In (35 Milford St.), one of just a few left in the state, is hosting a Phantom Gourmet BBQ all weekend long. (The brothers behind The Phantom Gourmet purchased the movie theater last year.) Firefly’s Bodacious Bar-B-Que & Beyond of Marlborough and Lester’s Roadside BBQ of Burlington will be serving the eats, and there will be beer and wine, as well as live music, and fun stuff for the kids. The party happens Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from noon - 5:45 all the days, and general admission is $5 per carload. Food and beverages are purchased a la carte. [Official Site]
