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.

The Boston Pops (led by Boston Daily’s pal Keith Lockhart) opens its festive Holiday Pops at Symphony Hall tonight. Each night features a celebrity narrator, but tonight’s performance also includes an appearance by Noah van Neil, Harvard’s football-playing opera singer.

It’s happened to all of us. We have a few drinks, get bored with people-watching, and notice we love the art on the walls. Usually we just admire it from afar like the hot guy at the bar, but at Artweek we can buy the art we love. Unfortunately, the hotties aren’t for sale.

Is there such a thing as a Hanukkah wreath? Apparently so. See this rare treasure at the Festival of Wreaths at the Van Millwork Design Center in Needham.

The Fiery Furnaces sound like just the thing we need after sliding into work today. Hopefully the indie band’s mellow rock will keep us warm enough to tolerate another slick commute after the show.
