This post is part of a daily series giving you tips and recommendations on what to do in the Boston area.
CARBO LOAD AT TOWNE
If you're running the marathon (or not, we won't tell), you've trained enough. Don't save the pasta indulgence for Sunday-- Towne will be offering four days of Italian entrees. Our pick? the ricotta and lemon ravioli. Starts at 5:30 pm., 900 Boylston Street, Boston, 617-247-0400, www.townboston.com. For more pre-marathon meal deals, check out our round up.
2013 BEER SUMMIT
Craft beer lovers, rejoice! For $42, taste over 60 brewers from Boston and around the world. Mingle with fellow enthusiasts or meet the brewers themselves. Our picks: see what Backlash, Opa Opa, and Berkshire Brewing have on tap. The Park Plaza Castle, 130 Columbus Ave, www.beersummit.com
The 11th anniversary of the Boston Young Professionals Association has a theme you won't want to miss. (It's called "night circus." How cool is that?) Wear your best black, white, and red, and get there on time-- the first 200 people will recieve a complimentary masquerade mask. 7-10 p.m., $15-90, The Estate, 1 Boylston Pl., Boston, www.bostonypa.com
