The Weekender: August 2-4

the weekender

Hooray, Friday! And welcome August! We hope that you start the month right with a wonderful weekend! Here are our top picks:

Studio strolling. Tonight is First Friday open studios in the South End! From 5-9 pm over 60 artists at 450 Harrison open their doors. We always love to see what they are working on, before grabbing a bite in the neighborhood!

Art Deco Downtown. We love summer strolls, and with Boston By Foot we can learn a little something about our city at the same time! Living right downtown, I am always admiring the beautiful Art Deco architecture in the financial district. This Saturday, a special walking tour explores the Art Deco buildings  in and around downtown.

Summer Girl (video here). We have a serious soft spot for Beck, playing tonight at the Bank of America Pavilion on the Harbor. Tickets are still availbale through ticketmaster and on stubhub.

Ice Cream. Because it is the best. Nothing else says summer quite like ice cream. We love Batch (especially the ginger!) and JP Licks. Check out this great list of Boston’s best ice cream, or try your hand at making your own (with a little help from the amazing David Lebovitz)!

Do you have an upcoming event that you’d like to see listed on The Weekender? To be considered, send us a note at Have a wonderful weekend! xo
