MON 6/14: Trail Nosh, Eggs, Film, Rock

Aloha, friends. It wasn't a sunny weekend, and the forecast isn't that great for the week; but our basketball team is one win away from another championship.

Yesterday's brunch menu included an item with Gulf shrimp. I had to make a wisecrack, but we should remember that no one is going to send or serve bad seafood; it was delicious by the way.


MON 6/14

6:30pm to 8pm
Hiking Nutrition Clinic
at Boston REI, 401 Park Dr, Boston (Fenway)

Some of you may want to go hiking, and it's not bad to get a little advice on what food to bring. Maybe hiking does have different requirements than other long-distance exercise, but I imagine non-hikers can pick up a few tips.

Kim Raubenheimer of Your Health Sense will answer questions such as:

Are you lacking the energy you need to finish your hike? Do you know what to pack that is healthy and portable? Do you know how to pick out healthy food choices while shopping?
When I checked on Sunday, there were still spots to register.

MON 6/14

7pm to 9pm
2nd Annual Deviled-Egg Off
at PA's Lounge, 345 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)
$10 suggested donation

The bad news is that it's too late for you to enter your eggs in any of the categories (best traditional, best creative, or "deviled gone wild").

The good news is that you can a beer or two and try all of the versions the classic party snack, and your donation benefits Community Servings who provide home-delivered meals to people in Eastern Mass with HIV/AIDS and life-threatening illnesses who have difficulty cooking or shopping for themselves.

The bad news is that you'll probably eat more than you should. The good news is that this only happens once a year -- and they're so devilishly tasty! So be healthy i general and don't worry about the mayo and calories.

There are some photos from last year on Facebook.

MON 6/14

Best of Boston 48 Hour Film Project
at Kendall Square Cinema, 370 Binney St, Cambridge

Last month, about 100 filmmaking teams created shorts from start to finish over one weekend. On Friday they were each given a genre, a character, a prop and a line of dialogue. Every aspect of the film was done in 48 hours with final product turned in on Sunday night.

All of them were screened in May, and tonight's program consists of about 15 of the best entries. Awards will be announced tonight including "Best Film" of course.

I haven't seen any of these shorts, but I'm picking my faves like at the race track -- by the names: "404bidden_Love", "Luke Discovers the Ability to Time Travel into the Future in Fifteen Second Intervals", and "Pie Heist"

MON 6/14

Girlfriends, Life Partners, Bone Zone
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

Girlfriends is my favorite band of the night, and I'm guessing they're playing last. While you await their fabulously, fan-friggin'-tastic, fuzzy garage-pop, there's a batch of witty noise-rock from Life Partners and a blast of spazzy post-punk from Bone Zone.
