Is today not the PERFECT day?
Oh man, spring has finally sprung — and so has Boston’s social calendar! Here’s a handful of my favorite events happening around town through the end of the month. Did I miss anything? Leave a note in the comments!
Budget foodies, rejoice: Spring is almost here, and with it Boston Restaurant Week is back again. For the next two weeks, hundreds of restos around the Hub are offering prix fixe lunches and dinners from $15.13 to $38.13 (not including booze, natch).
If anyone we know lives fabulously on a dime, it’s Melissa Pocek. Constantly traveling the world, she manages to still have a packed social calendar while simultaneously saving up for her frequent flights. Here are her top three tips for saving cash without sacrificing nosh. ~Tara
After the winter we had in 2010, with fresh snowfall between six inches to a foot every Wednesday like clockwork for more than six weeks, a forecast of two feet of snow really didn’t phase us. At all. Especially when it was going to happen on a Friday.
Just a sampling of all the free, cheap, and super fun things going on around Greater Boston this weekend. Closing sales and discounts at one of our all-time favorite vintage stores, parkour in the park, the annual No Pants Subway ride, DIY giltter shoes workshop in Worcester, free and cheap yoga, $1 oysters and so much more.
No excuses for staying home!
When I was a little girl (like many of you, I’m sure), I fantasized about running away with the circus. There was nothing more fun and romantic to me than the idea of being a trapeze artist or an acrobat on a bareback horse. I love animals, and thanks to my dance, gymnastics, and figure skating competitions, was no stranger to either stunts or sequins.
The other day in the office, I was absolutely shocked to find out that not everybody knows about Marshmallow Fluff — that there are actually children in America growing up without knowing the simple joy of a Fluffernutter sandwich: soft bread (corners cut off or not) sandwiching together sticky swaths of sweet Marshmallow Fluff and salty Teddie Peanut Butter.
