The Weekender: April 11-13

Flowers are blooming and the sun has been shining. Here are our top picks for a lovely mid-April weekend.

Sipping Seder. Pass the gefilte fish! To celebrate Passover, which starts this Monday evening, attend Kitchen Kibitz’s Sipping Seder on Sunday at The Hawthorne. In addition to interesting cocktails, a dessert featuring pear harroset sounds mighty delicious. (Hurry! There are only a few tickets left.)

Slow Down. Tomorrow is Slow Art Day, a worldwide celebration that invites people to view art slowly. The movement inspires you to look at art differently – and perhaps appreciate it in a more thoughtful way. The Institute of Contemporary Art is participating in the celebration. If you’re feeling especially moved, consider popping over to the MassArt Auction.

Eat and Run. To benefit the b.good Family Foundation, b.good is hosting a running and eating challenge on Saturday. The Burger Brigade’s Dine ‘n Dash will start at b.good and end at J.J. Foley’s. Talk about good motivation!

Pass the Ramen. A pop-up ramen restaurant is serving up delicious bowls of ramen this Sunday. Limited seats, so go here for more info. If you’re still in the munching mood, hop on over to The Painted Burro for the 2nd Annual Guac Off, where guests will craft their favorite guacamole recipe in hopes of having their recipe be featured on the The Painted Burro menu.

Cycle On. The beloved South Boston cycling studio, The Handle Bar, is opening their second location in Fenway this weekend. For the grand opening celebration, the studio will be offering free classes, raffles, and discounts on class packages (for new riders only).
