|Deep Ellum patio|
Deep Ellum in Allston is going deep on the upcoming Boston Marathon theme. (The Boston Marathon is Monday, April 15). To get you in the groove, the funky American is holding a deck party on their back deck on April 1. Chef Rian Wyllie will be whipping up some grilled sausage sandwiches, there will be plenty to drink from Smuttynose Brewing Co. and a general great vibe to welcome the running season.
Ticket includes a choice of one grilled sandwich, three beverages and as many Island Creek oysters as you can handle. Proceeds will go toward RESPOND, a Somerville-based nonprofit that works against domestic violence (4-10 PM; $40 per person; click here for tickets; 617-787-2337).
