Free Burgers, Dinner and a Movie, Caffeinated Cocktails

Free burgers, maybe. Delicious: Burgers. More delicious: Free burgers. So thanks, Shake Shack. On Saturday, August 9 and Sunday, August 10, the burger joint will bring out its special edition MeisterShack cheeseburger, which is topped with Ale-marinated shallots and special sauce. And at both Chestnut Hill and Harvard Square locations, the first 100 customers to order the MeisterShack will get it free. It's a "thank you" to the city after being named "Nouveau Fast-Food Burger" in the recent Boston magazine Readers Poll'; next it competes against patties from 19 other restaurants (like Foundry on Elm, Union Bar & Grille and The Blue Ox) at the Battle of the Burger event on August 13. 

Dinner and a movie. The Shake Shack in Chestnut Hill is right by the Showcase SuperLux theater. After your burger lunch, do some shopping on The Street - then grab dinner and a movie. To celebrate the food-related flick The Hundred Foot Journey, the theater has created a menu inspired by food and drink featured in the film. Among the plates: vegetable pakoras with cilantro chutney, chai spiced macarons, and a ginger basil mojito. And if you purchase a "SuperLux" ticket, you'll get a free cookbook. More importantly, real food trumps popcorn with fake butter any day. The special menu launches August 8 and will be available throughout its run at the theater. 

Caffeinated Cocktails pop-up. Need a buzz? How about two. On Tuesday, August 12, Boston's mobile reservation service SoonSpoon will host Caffeinated Cocktails at 6:30 PM at WeWork Fort Point. On the agenda: a trio of coffee-based cocktails prepared using the potent combined powers of Audubon bar manager Tyler Wang (formerly of Barbara Lynch's No. 9 Park and Drink) and Hannah Epstein: the java queen of 1369 Coffee House who we previously recognized among the town's most talented latte artists. Grab tickets ($30) here, and find out how to mix up some boozy bean-based creations.
