The Weekender: February 21-23

the-weekender

Wow – I can’t believe it is Friday already! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to post as much as usual this week because my laptop decided to take a break – I’ve been missing that gadget for sure! Hopefully I can get it sorted out over the weekend, and have time for a little fun too! Here are some fun things to do over the next few days.

Get Outside. While today will be a melty mess, the weather for the rest of the weekend is looking amazing, with highs of 50 degrees! After the recent snow and cold temperatures, we are so looking forward to a few mild days!

Indulge your Imagination. The ICA’s new exhibition of art from Nick Cave has been garnering great reviews, and we can’t wait to check out his soundsuits. If you have a little one, Saturday is a perfect day to visit the ICA. From 10am-4pm, visiting artist Ciro Faienza will be helping families collect designs they see and create their own 3D artwork. Up to two adults accompanying children 12 or younger are admitted free on Saturday!

The Big Top from Down Under. Circus Oz is in Boston this weekend, bringing daredevil stunts and humor (for all ages) to the stage! Founded in 1978 but always incorporating new skills, this animal-free circus has traveled to 26 countries. The current show, From the Ground Up, is based on the daring of construction workers who spend their days on the high beams. For tickets and more information, take a look at the website.

Revisit the Greats. Berklee College of Music hosts an evening devoted to the great women songwriters of the American Songbook this Sunday, including familiar names such as Aretha Franklin, Carole King, and Billie Holiday. Admission is $8 in advance and $12 on Sunday. For more information and tickets, check the Berklee website.
