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.

Did you miss the New Kids on the Block’s triumphant return to Boston last weekend? There’s still time to try and score tickets to tonight’s show at Mohegan Sun. And if you fail, at least you can gamble to ease the pain.

We’ve been meaning to unload that copy of The DaVinci Code we bought to occupy ourselves during a long flight a few years ago. The Barking Crab is accepting gently used books and donating them to ReadBoston. You’ll continue to do good if you stay and eat—20 percent of the day’s proceeds will also benefit the charity.

The Red Sox won’t play again until late tomorrow night, so you need something to keep yourself occupied. Game On!’s Batting Cage Package allows parties of 20 or more to take BP at Fenway Park.

Another reason to lament the economic slowdown—we’ll have to eat at home once in a while. Make sure you have the skills to survive by attending Bullfinchs Fall Cooking Classes.
