48 Hours of Freedom

It’s the weekend. You can spend it drinking until 2 a.m. and sleeping until noon, or you can drag yourself out of bed and enjoy it. Here are some suggestions for your precious two days of total freedom, prepared for you by Boston Daily.

Ooooo, Barracuda. Heart rocks the Bank of America Pavilion.

When asked what America tastes like, we’d say it tastes like gasoline and Big Macs. Taste America is a national event held by the James Beard Foundation, and will be celebrated locally at Veronique in Brookline, with locally produced food and drinks.

Fall means winter is coming, which we hate. But it also means Octoberfest celebrations, which we love. Enjoy Harpoon brews out of your souvenir pint glass at Harpoon Octoberfest. But be careful not to stumble into the keg bowling alley.

Take to the streets, Cambridge. The Huron Village Street Fair has produce, fashion shows, and an obstacle course.

A Boston institution is the last show to play a Boston institution. With tonight’s Dropkick Murphys concert, Avalon as we know it will shut its doors, enter into a cocoon of scaffolding, and emerge as the generic and modern Lansdowne Street Music Hall.
