The Weekender: October 13-15
Happy Friday! It is Serena’s birthday today — she is turning 2! So hard to believe how big she is getting — I love watching her grow. Today we are going to music class, and then I’m sure we’ll hit up a few playgrounds and see a few friends. We hope you have a wonderful weekend! Here are our top picks for what to do around town:
Fort Point Open Studios. We always love open studios. So much fun chatting with artists and hearing about their work, and it’s an amazing way to find something for your own home that you have a real connection to! This weekend is the 38th annual Open Studios in Fort Point. There are so many wonderful artists living and working in Fort Point, and their Open Studios is such a great way to spend a day! Check out the new public installation from Gianna Stewart — an iceberg floating in Fort Point Channel. See the artist listing, schedule, and other information here.
MFA Late Nites. The MFA kicks off its new series of Late Nites tonight from 8pm-2am. Advance tickets are sold out but there will be some available at the door at 8pm ($20). This evening’s festivities include a chef showdown, a moonlit beer garden, a rap slam, drawing, meditation sessions, and a peek at the new Takashi Murakami exhibition, plus other ongoing exhibitions. How fun!
HUBweek. There are lots of events around the city and especially in City Hall Plaza as part of HUBweek. The domes and shipping containers set up at City Hall have really transformed the space! Take a look at the schedule here — registration is required but many events are free.
Fall Foliage. The weather the last few days has us finally believing that it’s fall! It is peak fall foliage season! Getting out of the city or into one of our green spaces this weekend to admire the beautiful colors is high on our list. Enjoy!
