Boston: Deep Ellum's Deck Party

Help DE's owner/manager/jogging team of Max and Jen raise cash for their charity marathon run by kicking back on the deck for an epic six-hour cookout during which you'll gorge on one of three grilled sausage sammies (German w/'kraut, Asian banh mi, or an Italian w/peppers & onions), all the Island Creek oysters you can take down, and three Smuttynose brews, including their Star Island Single and Big A IPA.

Deep Ellum's Deck Party: Mon. Apr. 1, 4 p.m.; 477 Cambridge St., 617-787-2337.
