48 Hours of Freedom

By ·

It’s the weekend. You can spend it hunting Easter eggs, or you can put down your basket and enjoy it. Here are some suggestions for your precious two days of total freedom, prepared for you by Boston Daily.

Tonight
Parting is such sweet sorrow. Winter Restaurant Week 2008 ends today. A three-course dinner is $30.08, and lunch is $20.08.

The Red Sox are in Japan this weekend, and the Land of the Rising Sun is well-represented at Anime Boston 2008. The weekend-long event features art shows, karaoke, and Japan’s own punk-pop rockers, The Pillows.

Treat yourself to something new for your home. Lekker Unique Home Furnishings celebrates its anniversary by taking up to 50 percent off its funky housewares.

While we’re not big fans of street level real estate, we’re excited for “Street Level.” This collection of artwork inspired by urban culture are on display at the ICA.

Saturday
We don’t know how they’ll keep track of all those stockings. The Great Boston Burlesque Expo features more than 40 burlesque groups from around the country, along with music, shopping, and classes.

No, you don’t have to show up in your underwear. Just bring a pillow to Copley Square to participate in International Pillow Fight Day.

Ever since we saw Donnie Darko, we’ve been terrified of people in Easter Bunny costumes. But if the wee ones in your life haven’t been similarly scarred, take them to Belkin Family Lookout Farm for an Easter Egg Hunt.

If you just can’t let go of Restaurant Week, try Fleming’s Winter Prix Fixe. Choose from three entrees, and enjoy your choice of salad, side dish, and dessert.

Sunday
1206110671 Believe it or not, it’s Easter. If the cold weather caught you unprepared for the holiday, you have plenty of dining options. Beehive offers a family-friendly Easter brunch, complete with an all-day egg hunt. Beacon Hill Bistro has a prix-fixe brunch, and the Hyatt Regency Boston has a Champagne Brunch that’s suitable for the kids.

Since it seems that it’s never going to warm up, you might as well stock up on winter clothes. Stil’s sale wraps up today.

If you prefer latkes to hot cross buns, you can take a Walking Tour of Brookline’s Jewish Cuisine.

After all that food, you may need to relax. Check out Boston jazz legend Ray Santisi at the Copley Marriott.
