Weekend Guide: Hockey, Huron Village, and History on the Half Shell

It’s the weekend and here are some things to do. Get out and try something new! 

4th We are just starting to think about Thanksgiving, but if you are smart you will get all your Christmas shopping done early and avoid the crowds and the craziness.  Shop from booth to booth a little bit of everything and anything can be found at the Christmas Festival.  The Christmas Festival Opens on Friday, November 4th and is open through Sunday, November 6th.

4th History on the Half Shell An evening of oyster tasting guided by author Rowan Jacobsen.

5th – 6th Create a beautiful bowl to put all your decorative gourds into at the Intro to Bowl Turning class at the North Bennet St. School
5th It is hockey season and this weekend the Bruins are playing the Rangers. Check out some of the tasty food you can find in the rink.

5th SpeakOut speaker training series LGBTQIA.  Speakers of all ages learn how to tell stories and engage in discussions. SpeakOUT has trained members of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), the Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth (BAGLY), Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition, and many other area organizations.

5th Try your luck in the standby line at Carly Simon’s sold out book signing at the Harvard Book Store.

5th Chef Joe Gatto makes an appearance at the Barnes and Nobles Mini Maker Faire.  Come watch Chef Gatto cook and learn about his new book Seriously From Scratch.

5th From page to stage: Ryan P. Casey and Off Beat present “Unbound!” taking poetry and prose and turning into dance punctuated with tap.  This tap dance performance is at the Regent Theatre in Arlington.

6th – One for every day of the week.  Post 390 pairs up with 7 MA breweries for a beer and slider party.  Vote for your favourite brew/slider pairing and help choose the champion.

6th Love, loss and rescue is a theme this month.  Get lost in the story of Fidelio from the Saltzburg Festival at Coolidge Corner Theatre’s Opera at the Cinema, catch one of Boston Ballet’s last performances of Le Corsaire, or grab some tickets for An American in Paris.

This weekend, check out a new neighborhood.  Chronicle recently featured a piece on Huron Village, where you can shop, walk, play, and dine with the family.  Enjoy some play time at one of the nearby playgrounds or take a walk around Fresh Pond Reservoir after.  Head out to West Concord for a little day trip outside the city and grab a bite at Saltbox Kitchen, or check out some of these Local Gems on Boston Mamas.
