In the doldrums of March, the lucky among us have an Airbnb in Cuba or spring break in Cancun to look forward to. For the rest, it’s 71-degree days sandwiched between single digit temps, biting winds, and gray. Lots of gray. But there’s hope! To help you overcome pre-spring boredom, we’ve put together a list of activities and events Bostonian staycationers can attend in March. Some are enriching. Some are boozy. All are fantastic.
BostInno’s Tech Madness Bracket Reveal Blowout @ Game On!
BostInno’s generating awareness for the city’s booming startup community in the timeliest way imaginable: a bracket to determine which of the 64 participants will be the most valuable 5 years down the road. Head over to Game On for food, drinks, games, and the bracket’s big reveal.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Sound Lab Social
Enjoy an evening of cultured crate digging at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s Sound Lab. They’ve compiled a vinyl archive of sounds from Boston’s past and present, and there’s even an opportunity to step up to the mic yourself.
Artisan Cheeses of the World with Ihsan Gurdal at BU
Ihsan Gurdal, owner of Cambridge’s Formaggio, has forgotten more cheese than the rest of us know combined. Spend the evening at BU with a true cheese aficionado; it’s a bit steep (with tickets coming in at $80 a pop), but how can you possibly say no to artisan cheeses with expertly selected wine accompaniments?
Sip & Slide at Post 390
What’s the only thing better than craft beer from every corner of the Bay State? Pairing each one with a deliciously snackable slider, of course. Join Jack’s Abby, Berkshire Brewing, and more!
Code in the Harpoon Brewery
Harpoon and General Assembly unite to bring Bostonians a one-night series of talks about code and its impact on everything from local businesses to healthy living. Don’t forget your laptop!
Go to the Museum of Fine Arts Any (or Every) Wednesday
Every Wednesday after 5 p.m.
Budget conscious, but still looking to scratch your art itch? Swing by any Wednesday after 5 p.m. and you can wander the MFA’s manifold exhibits and wings to your heart’s content. For free (though a donation is suggested)!
SoWa Vintage Market Sundays
A few dozen vendors peddling everything from off-kilter furniture to artwork to high-fashion apparel. It’s indoors. You can bring your dog. A quainter Sunday cannot be had!
Anything else? What are you hitting around town this month?
