When/Where: Sunday from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at Sandy Burr Country Club (103 Cochituate Rd, Wayland)
The Buzz: This event is named Lobster Fest, but it is so much more than lobster. The menu features steak and chicken and chowder and, for the grand finale, Lizzy's ice cream sundaes. If great food isn't enough, perhaps the good deed attached to it will be. The fest benefits the Wayland Council on Aging.
