The Weekender: May 9-11


Happy Friday, friends! As spring is in full-swing, there are many great events to enjoy our beautiful city this weekend – and a very happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible moms out there!

Fort Point Open Studios. This weekend, seventy-five artists will open their studios for the public in Fort Point. There’s some serious talent – from painters to jewelers to photographers.

Lilac Sunday. Few things are better than fresh flowers, especially after a long winter. This Sunday, the Arnold Arboretum celebrates Lilac Sunday, featuring more than 380 lilac plants. Great way to celebrate Mother’s Day! In honor of the 106th Annual Lilac Sunday, many of the areas food trucks will be serving up delicious food at the Arboretum.

Preservation Month. It’s Boston Preservation Month! To learn more about the incredible history that surrounds you, attend an event, lecture, or guided tour.

Women in Comedy. Grab some lady friends and be ready to laugh the night away at the Women in Comedy Festival Show. The event will take place at Cambridge’s The Comedy Studio this Saturday.
