48 Hours of Freedom


It’s the weekend. You can spend it anxiously awaiting the arrival of weather that actually indicates it’s spring, or you can put on your parka and enjoy it. Here are some suggestions for your precious two days of total freedom, prepared for you by Boston Daily.

Tonight
Club Passim has been good to Joan Baez, and tonight she returns the favor. The folk singer (and Gonz Show participant) plays the venue in which she got her start.

The parking lot at the Burlington Mall is already a nightmare. We can’t even fathom how long it will take us to find a spot now that Nordstrom has opened at the popular North Shore shopping destination.

Keep your bundle of joy toasty for less. 9 Months has taken as much as 60 percent off original prices on its baby winter wear.

These kids on YouTube really hope They Might Be Giants play “Freezing at Pee-Wee Hockey” at the Somerville Theater tonight.

Saturday

The DJ booth is not a boys-only area. Basstown Presents: The Revolution Will be Feminized brings New York DJ Lauren Flax and other female DJs to Great Scott.

CRAFTBOSTON isn’t a display of all those popsicle stick picture frames you made at summer camp. Nearly 200 artists converge on the Seaport Hotel to display their unique works of art, and many are priced under $100.

We love it when a dance-off is held for the betterment of others, and not just as a way for Britney to get back at JT. Boston University’s Dance Marathon is an 18-hour affair that raises money for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation and Camp Heartland.

Sunday
The Harlem Globetrotters have nothing on the first-place Celtics.

A boiled lobster is great, but sometimes you want more. And you can get it at Lineage, which features our favorite sea creature prepared in a different way every Sunday night.

Need some new furniture, but don’t want to gamble on the Red Sox sweeping the World Series? The Boston Design Center’s Spring Sample Extravaganza features great deals on designer home furnishings.

Cool choreography doesn’t happen only in music videos. Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal celebrates the 50th anniversary of the company and the cutting-edge routines from Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin.
