46. weekend to-do's

  1. get some r&r, vermont style. i'll be joining some good friends for a weekend in burlington, vt. i'm looking forward to board games, bike rides and great company.
  2. get lost in a new book. celeste ng's everything i never told you just came out in paperback. i recently had the pleasure of hearing this local cambridge author discuss the book and it's inspiration during a talk at harvard book store. can't wait to read it!
  3. jazz fest. we'll be in burlington just in time to catch the last weekend of the burlington discover jazz festival. highlights for this weekend include mavis staples, rubblebucket and the colin stetson & sarah neufeld duo.
  4. brunchtimes. i have it on good authority that penny cluse cafe is the place to brunch in burlington. gingerbread pancakes? yes please!

  1. make a sweet treat. the garden is overflowing with rhubarb right now so i am looking forward to making a batch of this compote to put on my yogurt in the mornings!
  2. local live music. i can't wait to hear julie rhodes and the union band at bull mccabe's saturday night. this small venue has a great sound and there's always a little space to dance. julie's voice is incredible and her band is tight.
  3. bike ride. recently got my bike tuned up and ready to take a relaxing ride on the minuteman trail. any suggestions for new trails in the somerville area are seriously welcome!
  4. bbq!! every year, formaggio kitchen sets up their huge weber grill on the sidewalk in front of their cambridge store and serves up delicious, savory, grilled food. can't wait to get my hands on some smoked pork shoulder and caramelized onions. delicious!
