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.

We’re not sure how scary indoor haunted happenings actually are, but Spooky World has six attractions under the roof of the Bayside Expo Center to frighten us.

Sure, you can always go to the salad bar in the cafeteria for your greens, or you could eat your roughage for a good cause. Salad Days at the Palm features gourmet lunch salads, with proceeds benefiting Dress for Success.

The Wrentham Village Premium Outlets just got a little more deadly for our credit score. Kate Spade opens an outlet store today at the bargain shopping mecca.

Residents of Davis Square should expect to be woken up by brass instruments this weekend. HONK! is a celebration of music that takes inspiration from New Orleans jazz bands and European Klezmer music. It may be loud, but it’s fun.

The Museum of Science is in a pretty morbid mood lately. Not only does the museum host CSI: The Experience, but it also celebrates Massachusetts Archeology Month with Archeology Weekend. Come for the grisly murder scenes, stay for the bones!

The Amazing Race is the one reality show we’d like to participate in. If you want the experience but hate air travel, you’re in luck. Urban Interactive hosts the “Amazing-Race” Style Adventure, a fast-paced race around the city.

Stop by the Ipswich Ale Harvest Fest to enjoy samples of the brewery’s sodas and beer, along with music and a clambake.

A long, long time ago in a time called the ’80s, Boston had a huge stand-up comedy scene. Now we have Dane Cook. Celebrate Boston’s stand-up heritage with the Boston Comedy Festival which begins Sunday with a stand-up competition and a gay comedy night.

Don’t know what’s hip? Fear not, Neiman Marcus will tell you this weekend at its Fabulously Hip Shopping Event.

We’d tell you what’s happening on Monday, but we’re going to be here, blogging our hearts out for the other good souls who won’t get to celebrate Columbus’ pillage of the Americas.
