With Spring hopefully finally peeking its head out, here’s what the WLBT staffers have planned for the weekend.
Dave: After taking advantage of some downtime the last few weeks, I’m ready to get out there. Friday night will see me hitting up the familiar grounds of Chestnut Hill, thanks to an event honoring the work of BC Young Alumni. Since we’re there, we may as well go to Cityside or even our first round victor Mary Ann’s, right? On Saturday, I’m really excited to join up with alumni for a very cool event at Symphony Hall – a bunch of the arts groups from BC, including the choir I belonged to in my younger days, will be performing Aaron Copland’s “A Lincoln Portrait” in the space, with special narration from Chris O’Donnell. I’m going to end the weekend kicked back, watching hoops at whatever bar will still have me.
Natty: This is going to be a quiet one for me after last weekend’s festivities. Friday night I’ll drink wine and watch March Madness basketball with the gal. Saturday, I plan to play some music in Jamaica Plain during the day before racing home to watch Life of Pi with some friends. Sunday, I’m doing laundry. Man…I’m boring this weekend.
Dan F. – I shall call this weekend “Good Times with Old Friends.” It begins on Friday night north of the city at Route 1 landmark Kowloon (known for its dramatic facade, dominated by a gigantic, tiki-esque man), where some high school theatre nerds and I will reminisce about old times over Mai Tais and Saugus Wings. Saturday night it’s pizza, drinks, and board games with some of my oldest and dearest friends. Sunday morning I will seek the company of my good buddy Zaftigs, though I’m always open to new brunch suggestions! Lay ’em on me.
Alex: Pretty low key weekend in store for me. Friday night I’ll be hitting the gym followed by drinks and dinner with friends at Devlin’s. I love this place; downtown Boston quality, without the price tag. I plan on feasting on 1/2 doz. oysters, and the grilled swordfish entree while enjoying mango mojitos. Saturday morning, I’m heading to Wentworth with my friend Margaret for the Women at Wentworth’s 41 year celebration. The event brings alumnae, students, parents, faculty, and staff together to celebrate the women who have graduated from Wentworth. After that I will probably head over to the List Visual Arts Center at MIT, followed by drinks at Alibi in the Liberty Hotel. Sunday, I am helping my friend prep dinner for Passover, can’t wait to see how matzo ball soup is made.
Drea: A weekend where I can breathe! I’ll celebrate by planning very little! Dinner tonight maybe at Giulia’s in Cambridge, one of my new faves. Saturday is wide open – the world is my oyster, exhale for a workout, wedding stuff, manis/pedis ANYTHING!!! Sunday, I’ll be volunteering (per regular) with Girls on the Run followed by a concert at Brighton Music Hall with the High Highs and Sky Ferreira.
