What to Eat (and Drink) This Weekend
Cheeseburger (Birthday!!) Pizza
It’s been one glorious year since Stoked Wood Fired Pizza Co. parked permanently in Washington Square. To celebrate, the convivial staff chose four local charities among which they’ll spread out 10 percent of all of today’s sales. Also, co-founders Scott Riebling and Toirm Miller are firing up Stoked’s most-requested special: The on-point cheeseburger pizza. Other birthday weekend specials include General Tso chicken wings, and a spring shandy: a pint of Two Roads Worker’s Comp Saison and fresh-squeezed lemonade. And while Stoked always offers an extensive vegan menu, this weekend marks the debut of a gluten-free crust option. Happy first birthday, Stoked pizzeria—here’s to many more.
Fundraiser on Friday, April 14, 11 a.m.-11 p.m., 1632 Beacon St., Brookline, 617-982-FIRE, stokedpizzaco.com.
Give us meringue over marshmallow—it’s a Flour Bakery Easter menu tradition.

(Ron) Burgundy Beef Burger
A Will Ferrell-themed bar called Stay Classy debuts this weekend in Boston, and things are going to escalate quickly. Make a reservation via the traveling pop-up bar’s Facebook page during its nine-day stint at Umbria Prime to try specials in homage to Anchorman moments, like Ma’s Meatloaf burger; the Burgundy burger, with Swiss, sautéed mushrooms, and onions in a tangy burgundy reduction, topped with garlic whipped mashed potatoes; Jazz Flute fries, and more. Check out a menu preview courtesy of Metro Boston. The nightclub is shaking up themed drinks, and of course, there will be ample scotchy scotch scotch.
Stay Classy at Umbria Prime, April 14-23, 295 Franklin St., 617-338-1000, Facebook.
A Drink at the Eliot Lounge
OK, so it’s not the original, iconic Marathoners’ watering hole that used to inhabit the Eliot Hotel, just three-quarters-of-a-mile from the finish line. But running apparel brand Tracksmith is bringing the Eliot Lounge back to life on Newbury Street this weekend. The pop-up is located on the second floor of the Boston-born company’s new brick-and-mortar store, the Trackhouse. Newburyport Brewing Co. is providing the libations for all events during Tracksmith’s opening weekend events, including a Club Night on Saturday, and a Viewing and After-Party on Monday, April 17. The events are free, but you have to register. The bar will also have gratis Commonwealth Cold Brew on tap all weekend, plus complimentary Maple Water and regular H20.
The Jesus Cristo at the Automatic
Once family time is over on Easter Sunday, make your way to Cambridge for the Automatic’s first spring celebration. The Automatic Rising specials include a few drinks shaken with an egg, and deviled eggs to eat, of course, as well as the Jesus Christo: an eggy sandwich with roasted lamb, Camembert, and spiced syrup. Plus, the Kendall Square cocktail bar just debuted a Hampshire Street-side patio. And you didn’t hear it from us, but a certain B-Side Lounge alum and Automatic proprietor might just be tending bar in a bunny suit. How festive!
