- 'The Daily Candy Lexicon' reading @ Brookline Booksmith: Feeling hungover? Well, you did wash down your crapas (crappy tapas, obviously) with too much tart fuel (any girly drink that tastes like Kool-Aid) last night. The editors at trend setting website Dailycandy.com have a hilarious way with words, and they'll be in Brookline Wednesday to teach these phrases of the well-heeled and whip smart to the masses. 7 p.m.
- 'Silent Night' and 'Love Actually' @ the Boston Public Library: Bostonians who don't have air conditioning are already yearning for chilly fall days. Why not speed the seasons along? As part of its "Christmas in July & August" movie series, the Boston Public Library is screening a hall-decking double feature on Wednesday: "Silent Night: The Story of the Christmas Carol" and sweet "Love Actually" (starring Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, yummy). You'll be wassailing in no time. 5:30 p.m.
Saturday, July 12
- The Guess Who @ the Hatch Shell: Besides IMAX, Mike Myers, and Men Without Hats' "Safety Dance," the band Guess Who has to be my favorite Canadian export. The rockers have performed in various reformations since the mid-1960s and are responsible for the hits "No Time," "These Eyes," and "American Woman." However, none of Guess Who's members appear in the Milton Bradley game of the same name. Go figure. 7 p.m.
