  • Daily Dose: John Oliver at The Wilbur

    The Daily Show's resident Brit ditches Jon Stewart and goes solo for one night only.

    Funny pages: Election season may be over, but Oliver should have plenty to say about American politics. 

    Sat 7p. The Wilbur Theatre, 246 Tremont St., Theatre District (617-248-9700). $50-85 here.

    Nearby: Good Life; Shojo; Kingston Station

  • Brews and Bites: Brunch at John Harvard's

    After a recent renovation, it's only right John Harvard's Ale and Brew House introduces a vibrant new brunch menu.

    Food for thought: Try the thick cut French toast (layered with Nutella) or the classic eggs and house-smoked sausage.

    Sun 11a-3p. 33 Dunster St., Harvard Square (617-868-3585).

    Nearby: Le's; Daedalus; Grendel's Den

  • Flavor Fiesta: Local Brews and Latin Food

    The name says it all: expect the best in local beers and Latin flavors under one roof. 

    Party favors: There will be live music, a charity auction, and brews from Clown Shoes, Cape Ann and others. 

    Sat 6:30-10:30p. Center for the Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave., Somerville (617-718-2191). $40 here.

    Nearby: Highland Kitchen; Christopher's; YumeWoKatare

  • Wake the Dead: Death Grips at The Sinclair

    The critically acclaimed Sacramento thrash metal-meets-hip hop band rocks the newly opened Sinclair.

    Double up: The band released two albums this year and a handful of low-budget videos

    Fri 8p. The Sinclair, 52 Church St., Harvard Square (617-451-7700). $15 here.

    Nearby: Cambridge One; Russell House Tavern; Park
