Why spend Saturday afternoon running errands or puttering around the house when you could be out grooving to good music, socializing and sipping martinis and still make it home in time for dinner? That's the idea behind the first Saturday Social Mixer at Arlington's new Melody Tavern restaurant and lounge. The lineup includes the Secret Society, an old-school party band whose repertoire includes smooth '70s soul, upbeat '80s funk and some Quiet Storm ballads. Add DJs spinning jazz, R&B and hip-hop, afternoon happy-hour specials ($3 glasses of wine and half-price appetizers until 4 p.m.) and free gift bags, and you've got a Saturday afternoon that should feel like a Saturday night.
