– Tuesday at 9:30pm I’ll be participating in the weekly spelling bee at Highland Kitchen in the heart of Somerville.
– Wednesday evening at 7pm is a great time to hear classical music at the DCR Hatch Shell on the Charles River via the sweet sounds of the Landmark Orchestra’s Music of the Stars. Yeah, there will be Star Trek and Star Wars songs at the end. Yeah, it’s free.
– Thursday I’m going to check out Capital Grille with the Gesher City Foodies. I normally don’t support national chains but hey it’s restaurant week!
– Friday Is a good time to check out Marliave, which I heard has great food, cocktails, service and interior. It’s a throwback style restaurant, having re-opened paying homage to the original dating back to 1875, the concept of which I love.
– Saturday features the Cruise for a Cure put on by the Social Boston Sports guys (pre-party at 6pm, boarding at 8pm). Be on a boat, see the skyline, hear Boston’s best cover band, and party with some awesome people. The event costs $25 and benefits St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Prizes and raffles are going on throughout the night.
– Sunday I’ll be going on the Walking Tour of the West End (registration required; scroll down 1/4 of the way) starting at the Otis House at 1pm-2:30pm. It should be interesting to see and hear about the different layers of history in this neighborhood, which has changed character 3 times reflecting eras of US history. Tickets are $7 for Historic New England members and $15 for the rest of us.
– Monday There is a free yoga session during the sunset from 6pm-7pm at the DCR Hatch Shell on Boston’s Esplanade. BYOM – Bring Your Own Mat.
