Coffee & Booze. This Saturday, head to Boston’s new craft distillery, Short Path, for a cocktail made with with Gracenote coffee. If you need even more of a caffeine fix, Gracenote founder Patrick Barter will be at the distillery from noon to 9pm offering tastings of his cold brew iced coffee.

Jazz and Soul. If you’re looking to escape the city this weekend, head north for the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival. The series of events include a drum circle, sing-a-longs, workshops, and of course live music.
