Tonight at The Sinclair in Cambridge, you can dine with designer Stephen Martyak, AIA, owner of studioTYAK and Josh Bhatti, general manager of The Bowery Presents: Boston. The event which begins at 5:30 p.m. features a discussion on the music-infused design process, a tour of the restaurant, and some insight on how an existing concrete ceiling became the inspiration for a design concept that transformed an office building into The Sinclair, a hybrid restaurant/rock club. The Dining with Design Series gives diners a unique inside look at the design challenges facing architects within the Boston area. Next month’s dinner will be held at Gather.

Over at the Opera House in Downtown Crossing, the Broadway musical Kinky Boots continues its Boston run through the end of the month. The Tony Award winning “Best Musical” follows a struggling shoe factory owner who works to turn his business around with help from Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. Together, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible. Inspired by a true story, Kinky Boots features music by Cyndi Lauper and direction and Tony-winning choreography by Jerry Mitchell.
