Discover new worlds.
Ku De Ta Grand Reopening Reception
What: The international clothing and accessories boutique — closed since May due to a fire — reemerges with a glammed-up look (dark wood, chandeliers), new dresses and separates from Charlie Jade and MinkPink, and 10 percent off all purchases.
Why: A little pink bubbly will grease the shopping wheels.
When: Sat., 4-6 p.m.
Where: 663 E. Broadway, South Boston (617-269-0008).
What: Go urban locavore by grazing on small plates from ten Villen restos (Posto, Foundry on Elm) and downing pours from a dozen New England breweries and wineries (Rapscallion, Westport Rivers).
Why: The evening session includes a multimedia, acrobatic performance from Zebbler Encanti Experience and AirCraft Aerial Arts.
When: Sat., 1-5 & 6-10 p.m.
Where: The Center for Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave., Somerville. Tickets ($20-$35) online at brownpapertickets.com.
Dance in the Fells
What: Local choreographers (Lorraine Chapman, John Kramer) stage six alfresco performances — including one with impressively obedient pups — in various bucolic locales.
Why: Leaf your cares behind.
When: Sat., 1-6 p.m.
Where: Locations online at tworoads.org.
Cape Ann Artisans Tour
What: With the stunning North Shore vista as your backdrop, explore the seaside studios of sixteen artists, including ceramicists, photographers, and mosaic artisans.
Why: The perfect excuse for a last-hurrah fried-clam feast (Essex Seafood is an undersung fave).
When: Sat.-Mon., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: Pick up a map at Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, 33 Commercial St., Gloucester (978-283-1601).
Battery Park Opens
What: A welcome FiDi addition, the casual 90-seat watering hole offers sixteen beers on tap (including a couple of Octoberfests) and fifteen flat-screens for primo Pats viewing (a 110-seat patio will open next spring).
Why: Hedonistic munchies like buffalo chicken rangoon and Philly cheesesteak egg rolls.
When: Daily, 11 a.m.-2 a.m.
Where: 33 Batterymarch St. (617-350-7275).
