The Weekender: October 31-November 2
Happy Halloween! It promises to be an interesting Friday night – I absolutely love seeing people in costume walking through the streets. This is my first Halloween in Beacon Hill, and I have heard there are lots of trick-or-treaters, so I am ready to admire costumes and hand out fun-size candies on the stoop! We hope you have a festive weekend. Here are a few fun things happening around town.
Halloween for Hope. On Saturday night, celebrate Halloween again with a party benefiting the Ellie Fund, a group focused on supporting breast cancer patients and their families.
The Dalai Lama in Boston. The Dalai Lama is giving a talk on Saturday morning at TD Garden. (I am going, and am pretty excited!) Tickets are still floating around but with a huge range in prices – maybe compare a few websites if you would like to go.
Inside 10½ Beacon Street. The Boston Athenaeum is hosting an open house on Sunday afternoon (noon-4pm)! If you have ever been curious about what is behind the red doors, this is a great chance to learn about the library’s history and programs. Plus, check out the fascinating current exhibition! No registration required.
