38. weekend to-do's

  1. live music - all day! saturday is somerville's annual porchfest. this year's lineup looks so good, i don't know how i'm going to fit everything in... but i'm certainly going to try.
  2. stock up on local produce. saturday is also the opening day for the union square farmer's market. can't wait to chat with the vendors and pick up some gorgeous fruits and veggies!
  3. end my weekend on a high note. oddisee is one of those rare musicians who manage to sound fresh with each album. i highly recommend giving his new one, the good fight, some listens before heading to middle east upstairs on sunday night to watch him perform (i know i'll be there).

  1. more live music and light up swings! the lawn on d is throwing a kick-off party with live music, local food trucks and various activities friday and saturday. my band parks is playing saturday night at 9:00 pm but i plan on getting there a little early to enjoy the adult light up swing installation. this year the swings are eco-friendly and powered by solar power! music, food, swings. what more could you want!?
  2. sowa. i missed the opening of the south end open market last weekend so it is a top priority for me this weekend. not only will there be numerous artists and purveyors, the food truck line-up is going to be ridiculously good. can't wait to get my hands on a tasty taco from tenoch.
  3. watch mad men ride off into the sunset. i have been a faithful viewer of the amc show since it's premiere in july of 2007. when it originally aired, i began watching it for the visually stunning sets and costumes. but, i was quickly pulled in by the characters and their personal and professional relationships with each other. this weekend, the iconic series will come to an end and there will be a void in my sunday nights (and heart) from now on.
