The Weekender: October 4-6

After the incredible weather we’ve experienced this week, we’re ready for the beautiful weekend ahead. The Boston Day Book team will be heading down to Nantucket for a week of relaxation and adventure – be sure to follow along on Instagram.

Here are our top picks for this October weekend.

Oktoberfest in Davis Square. This Sunday, Redbones is hosting the 5th Annual Oktoberfest at their Davis Square restaurant. What’s an Oktoberfest party without a live Oompah band, pretzels and beer, and traditional German fare including bratwurst and potato pancakes?

Pedal in Pink. In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, South Boston’s new cycling studio, The Handle Bar, will be donating 50% of class proceeds on October 2, 9, 16, and 20 to the Ellie Fund. Additionally, 20% of proceeds from all special-edition pink retail products will be donated to the Ellie Fund. To prep for these empowering classes, head to the studio this weekend!

A Fresh Approach. Tomorrow in Copley Square, celebrity chefs, farmers, writers, and anyone with a food passion, will gather for the Let’s Talk About Food festival. Presented by Whole Foods Market in conjunction with The Boston Globe, the free festival will include demonstrations and workshops, including chocolate making, pasta making, fermentation, and more.

Party Like a Kid. The Boston Children’s Museum is one of my favorite places. From the early childhood memories to attending a New Year’s Eve party as a teenager, it’s always been a magical place. To celebrate 100 years, the museum is throwing a big party with dancing, food and drink, photo booth, and whole lot of fun.

Local Drama. Catch a performance of the Hub Theatre Company of Boston’s Goodly Creatures before it wraps up this Sunday. Set in 1630’s Boston, the two-act drama tells the story of Puritan dissident, Anne Hutchinson. As a non-profit organization, the Hub Theatre Company of Boston provides all tickets as pay-what-you-can to cultivate a diverse audience. To purchase tickets, please go here. (Read our recap from Hub Theatre’s last production.)

A Sunday Feast. This Sunday, the 4th Annual Boston Local Food Festival will take place along the Rose Kennedy Greenway. There will be food trucks, live demos, a seafood throwdown, and much more.
