The Weekend Update (Week of 4/17)

It All Comes Down To This

And We're Spent

Don't ya just love that Marathon Monday is a holiday?

While athletes from around the world (not to mention a few local diehards) pound the pavement for 26.2 miles, the rest of us look on, with a beer in hand, promising ourselves that ‘next year’ is our year.

Whether it’s drinking, eating or running, you’ve got your own marathon to tackle this weekend:

Vox's Marathon Party for the Social Athlete
With a front seat to all the finish line action on Boylston, Vox gives you every excuse to start a marathon day of drinking at 8 a.m.

Marathon Brunch at Beacon Hill Bistro
Runner or not, you’re a big believer in carbo-loading. Consider this five-hour brunch your Everest.

The Ultimate Beer Marathon
Combining the two best parts of Marathon Monday (workin’ on your fitness and getting sauced), this athletic boozefest is right up our alley.

"Synaesthesia," Mixed-Media by Dan Weisner
Tue 1/29 - Sat 4/19 (10AM) at Gallery at Dunia
Dan Weisner's stark canvases throw pop culture icons into abstract patterns and colors. His "Kate Moss" paints the model Warhol-like with blood flowing out of one nostril. And you thought that coke video was scandalous!
