61. weekend to-do's

  1. shop for dinner at a local-food wonderland. the boston public market is finally open and i can't wait to head over to hanover st. to check it out! everything sold at the market is produced or originated in new england, making it the only market of it's kind in the country.
  2. step up to the barre. i've been waiting patiently for barre & soul's new harvard square location to open since i first saw the signs go up. it's great to have a dedicated barre studio so close by and i can't wait to get my first workout in this weekend!
  3. give my creative juices a nudge. my friend danielle recently recommended 642 things to write about. it's a series of writing prompts aimed to clear any blocks and help you get writing. always a great idea to open up some new perspectives...
  4. do something dress-worthy. i just received my dresses from brass's beautiful spring/summer collection. the t-shirt dress is a perfect transition piece and i plan to incorporate it into my wardrobe for the remainder of the summer and into the fall. now to plan something fabulous so i can show it off!

  1. live music in allston. great scott has a strong line up this weekend starting tonight with indie rock band someone still loves me boris yeltsin. and to make this show even better, there are a few excellent local bands providing support that are worth checking out: surf vietnam and sinnet.
  2. delicious cocktails on the patio. before heading to great scott, i plan on stopping at deep ellum for one of my favorite drinks, the oaxacan rose. the mezcal, grapefruit liquor and lemon in this drink make it the perfect smokey & sweet summer treat. they also have an awesome back patio with a tree growing smack dab in the middle of it. love it!
  3. keep cool at the pool. the colonnade hotel in boston has a roof top pool and it's open to the public for a reasonable cover charge of $15. with all this heat, i am more than happy to pay a small fee to take a dip in some cool water.
