57. weekend to-do's

  1. artbeat. the somerville arts council's annual artbeat fest is happening this weekend in davis square. the festival includes dozens of bands, dance troupes, vendors and food options. this year's theme is looping - how the repetition of a pattern, sound or idea informs a work of art or a concept.
  2. lighten up. i've been getting my hair done at a. quinn hair studio in harvard square for a couple of years now. they never fail to do an amazing job (especially on naturally curly-haired girls like me). i'm heading in this weekend and thinking it's time my hair reflected this sunny summer weather...
  3. shopping for serveware. our plates have belonged to andy since college (!) and i, sadly, just broke the last of the bowls we purchased when first moving in together. clearly it's time to purchase some grown-up place settings. we are in love with the earthy, beautifully-made pieces from farmhouse pottery in vermont. we're excited to be investing in items that will last us for the next 10+ years to come.
  4. amy. i've heard nothing but great feedback on the haunting new amy winehouse documentary. i'm looking forward to learning more about the story and process of this great artist while revisiting some of my favorite songs.

  1. get out of the box. over one hundred artists are performing this week on various stages in the boston commons for the out of the box festival. the festival has five stages featuring a wide range of performances from local theater groups to well known pop musicians. my picks are kacey musgraves on friday night and ruby rose fox & air traffic controller on sunday night.
  2. keep it loyal. one of my favorite local purveyors of all things well made and design oriented is loyal supply co. in union square. tonight they are holding a "meet the maker" event from 6-9 pm. if you're interested in joining, make sure to rsvp!
  3. stumptown coffee date. i'm meeting at the thinking cup downtown before a photo shoot this weekend. this coffee house is one of the few i have found in the city that carries stumptown coffee- one of my personal favorites. there's nothing like a good cup of coffee with friends new and old on a weekend morning.
