UNION SQUARE — There's still time to grab a seat at Brass Union tonight for the 7 p.m. Brass Pair dinner with lager brewery Jack's Abby. Get your $40 ticket ahead of time online, call 617-623-9211, or just show up. [EventBrite]

HUB-WIDE — Planning to slurp some oysters this summer? First, consult Eater's guide for $1 mollusks, then consider snapping a #Shellfie. Island Creek Oysters is hosting a social media contest this summer, where each month, the best selfie artist wins an ICO prize pack. [IG]

SOMERVILLE — Aeronaut Brewing Company is celebrating its first birthday this week, and considering it has hosted a food hub in its cavernous space since it opened, you're probably going to want to attend its birthday parties (yes, parties). Residents like Something Gud, Somerville Chocolate CSA, and the soon-to-open Tasting Counter are showing the nighttime crowd what they do all day during an open house tomorrow night from 5 - 10 p.m. [FB]

WATERFRONT — Take in views of the Harbor, exhibitions of modern art, and some of Boston's best food at the Institute of Contemporary Art this month. The museum has brought back its Talking Taste series, an al fresco cooking demonstration and talk with one of Boston's top chefs, on its harborside grandstand (weather-permitting). On Friday, June 19, hear from Giulia chef/owner Michael Pagliarini; next Friday, June 26, Michael Scelfo of Alden + HarlowNaco Taco, and the future Waypoint will have the stage. Both events start at 6:30 p.m. and are $15 ($10 for ICA members). [Official Site]
