Quick Weekend Picks - Pumpkin Beer Fest @CBC, SOWA's Market of the Living Dead and Clover's New Store

Sorry folks, I was a bit delayed on the weekend picks this week - a little too preoccupied with getting my Lady Gaga glasses. :)

But, for those not hitting up a Halloween party this weekend (so many- Phoenix Landing, Middlesex, Machine, Beehive!) let me recommend hitting up some other fall/holiday fun.

Starting today, Clover Food Truck opened their first store - Clover Food Labs in Harvard Square, on Holyoke Street. The food lab is planning to be open until 11:00pm and Clover offers a variety of fresh, healthy fast food that I'm addicted to. My recommendation - the cider-apple fritters. For more info on Clover in Harvard Square, follow their Twitter feed.

Head over to my 'hood on Saturday for Cambridge Brewing Company's Great Pumpkin Fest. From 4pm to 1am enjoy thirty different pumpkin ales including eight CBC pumpkin brews and at least twenty-four guest brews. The night will also feature pumpkin and Oktoberfest inspired cuisine as well as the 10p.m. ceremonial tapping of The Great Pumpkin, a giant pumpkin filled with our Great Pumpkin Ale. Admission is $10 and includes a limited edition festival glass and an event map. For more info, click here.

And lastly, on Sunday for us grown ups, head to SOWA's Market of the Living Dead. Join 130 vendors for the last market of the season. Best costume (theme - zombies) wins $250! For more info, click here.
