The Weekend Guide: Harvard Art Museums, PoKémon & More

Here are a few things to keep you entertained this weekend.

Playing at the Discovery Museum, Acton.
Playing at the Discovery Museum, Acton.

Get inspired to cook for Thanksgiving and meet Wilson Farm‘s new executive chef Raymond Ost, former chef/owner of Sandrine’s Bistro in Harvard Square.  Chef Ost will be offering samples of his turkey roulade with sausage apple stuffing, butternut squash soufflés, croque madame sandwiches, and a tomato-rhubarb compote. Chef Ost will be out in the farm stand from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m.  Stop by, and ask him all about how one becomes a Maître Cuisiniers de France.

Pokémon Brawl at the Watertown Public Library.  Bring your Pokémon cards and head over to the library at 10:15 to battle it out with other children in grades K to 3.  No registration required.

Make a MESS at the Discovery Museum in Acton. Experiment and create unique works of art using shaving cream and bubbles.    The Make a MESS (Math, Engineering, Science, & Stuff) program series introduces STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) concepts through exploration, imagination, and fun. Funded by The Ramsey McCluskey Family Foundation.

Head to Made by Me as a family and make a few ornaments for your tree or to give as gifts.  Or, call ahead and see if they still have some of their menorahs and dreidls to paint. There is still time to paint a nice baking dish to serve the Thanksgiving stuffing in too.

When you have to wait 6 years for the results, there has to be a lot of fanfare and expectations will be high.  The Harvard Art Museums are opening on Saturday for Cambridge Residents and Sunday to the general public.  Students got a preview at the Student Opening earlier this month.  Unfortunately, the tickets are all spoken for this weekend, but schedule in a visit some time soon.  Harvard Art Museums: Fogg Museum, Busch-Reisinger Museum, Arthur M. Sackler Museum

Last chance to see Swan Lake is this weekend.  Annie is playing at The Wang Theatre through this weekend as well.  For those of you obsessed with the tv show Nashville, you can get your live country fix at The Wilbur Theatre with Trace Adkins’ Christmas show.
