The Last Word

Your long day of corporate drudgery is over. Get out and enjoy the city! Here are a few ideas to get you started, lovingly picked by Boston Daily.

Our lease doesn’t let us have a dog and most city-dwellers don’t let us pet their pooches. We’re thrilled to get our dog fix at the Bay Colony Dog Show, which starts tonight. If you want to say hi, we’ll be the ones trying to dognap a golden retriever.

There’s only so many recorded Christmas songs chain stores can blare while you shop. In Central Square tonight you can hear live carols as you enjoy Holiday Central. Stores are also encouraged to donate some of their proceeds to local charities.

Art lovers are a difficult bunch to shop for. Look for the next artistic innovator at the December Sale to Benefit Student Scholarships. Proceeds from the sale benefit the The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and you get a bonus free admission to the MFA when you make a purchase.

It’s hard to reflect your holiday spirit without resorting to one of those giant inflatable lawn statues. 60nobscot Home Furnishings enlists Trish Martin of Trish Martin Designs to answer your burning holiday decor questions as she showcases her latest designs.
