The Weekender: April 4-6
Finally, spring is in the air! We couldn’t be more excited to welcome April. Here are a few picks for making the most of this weekend:
Spring Pop-Up. The crew from Eat Boutique is partnering with Fringe Union to host a spring pop-up this weekend! (Open Saturday and Sunday, 12-5pm, Fring Union, Somerville.) Marisa McClellan will be signing copies of her cookbook, Foret Design will lead a floral workshop (email them to reserve), and Cuppow and Salt Cellar Serving Slabs will be on hand with their great products. Plus, Black Magic Coffee will be brewing from their espresso cart all day, and of course there will be food gifts and samples from Eat Boutique. The event is free, and seems like so much fun!
Work It Out. Spring is the perfect time to start a new exercise routine – while in the winter I love to indulge in stillness and quiet, around this time of year I want to get moving! Lately, we have been enjoying trying new classes through ClassPass, a fun program that let’s you try 10 fitness classes a month from some of the best local studios! Among them favorites such as Flywheel, Exhale, BTone, and more.
Boston Craft. This weekend, 90 local artists are exhibiting at the Cyclorama in the CraftBoston Spring Show. While the event is not free (tickets $7.50-$15), we noted some of our favorite local makers on the list. We could certainly spend a fun afternoon browsing the show (and hey, maybe treating ourselves to something handmade!)
City Strolling. This winter was not easy, and we cannot overstate how glad we are to see the sun! Besides a little shower on Saturday morning, the forecast for this weekend looks nice, with highs in the 50s! We plan to spend as much time as we can strolling the city streets. We love walking through all the downtown neighborhoods, along the Harborwalk, and on the Esplanade. Where are your favorite places to enjoy being outdoors in Boston?
