The Weekender: March 23-25

We don’t want the most spectacular week of 2012 (so far!) to come to an end. Can you believe how wonderful the weather was? We spent our time strolling the streets of Boston in sundresses and sandals. Frozen yogurt was most certainly on our menu! Local weathermen predicting a cool down this weekend, but there are still lots of ways to have springtime fun around the city.

Vive la Révolution. Enjoy a spectacular production of Les Misérables at the Boston Opera House this weekend. The show runs through April 1.

Galas Galore. Springtime is the season to see and be seen. If you’re feeling fancy, you can opt for a ticket to one of this weekend’s many galas including the Society Ball and Spoonful of Ginger.

Stay Hungry. The Hunger Games movie opened last night at midnight. Will you join the masses to watch Katniss battle it out on the big screen? Better yet?! Skip the crowded theater and  to stay home and read the book!

Mr. President. JFK is one of Boston’s most beloved presidents. Have you visited the JFK Library? Chris Matthews, author of Jack Kennedy, will be reading from his presidential biography at Brookline Booksmith on Saturday evening.

Sports Fans. The New England Revolution soccer team plays the Portland Timbers on Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium while the Celtics take on the Washington Wizards at the TD Garden on Sunday evening. This weekend marks the beginning of the Boston Derby Dames 2012 roller derby season
