48 Hours of Freedom
It’s the weekend. You can spend it scrapbooking, or you can get out and enjoy it. Here are some other suggestions for your precious days of total freedom, prepared for you by Boston Daily.
We know you brought canned goods to toss at the New York player you most revile, but Fenway security isn’t going to let you in with them. Hand your ammunition to the Red Sox Wives for their Can and Cash Drive. If you donate 10 cans of food (or $10 in cash), you’ll get an autographed picture of a player.
Last night’s dreary weather kept you inside. Head outside and enjoy a movie at the Boston Harbor Hotel’s Movies by Moonlight series. Tonight’s scheduled classic is Harold and Maude.
We learned to love Crosby, Stills, and Nash by flipping through our parents’ vinyl collection. The ’60s rockers perform at the Bank of America Pavilion.
There’s still a good month left to rock your strappy summer sandals, so take advantage of Moxie’s Summer Sale. Already-reduced designer shoes have been discounted an additional 15 percent.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make a short film in 24 hours. Diesel Film Racing issues the challenge, and the filmmaker’s work will be screened at the Brattle.
Hop to the HopHead ThrowDown. (Get it?) The Publick House will be pouring hoppy brews and serving food alongside the beer to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Folk music isn’t just for middle-aged hippies. The Lowell Folk Festival also brings out Jamaican ska groups and Quebecois music. We don’t even know what that is.
Music purists can scoff as much as they like, but we love George Michael. Be it his ultra-dated hits with WHAM! or the understated “Faith,” we’ll be glad to hear it at the Garden.
Mansfield’s EMTs are going to make a fortune in overtime this weekend. Extreme sports stars of all kinds come to the Comcast Center for Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom HuckJam.
We know you’ve been conserving your funds after all the bad economic news, but you can’t hold out forever. Give in to the urge to shop while being responsible with your money at the Wish Summer Sale. Spring and summer clothing has been reduced by 50 percent.
All of God’s hamburgers are delicious in our eyes. But we’ll still take advantage of Sibling Rivalry’s Dueling Burgers menu.
