In the hope that we won’t be forced into hibernation, I have found some fun things to do around Boston this weekend. Let’s end Spring Break ’13 with a positive note, Huskies, with or without snow!Did you know that on Fridays all IMAX films at the Museum of Science are FREE? Just pick up your ticket at the box office the day of the show and enjoy films like Africa: The Serengeti and The Last Reef: Cities Beneath the Sea. For a complete schedule, click here. “Be right back, just jetting off to Iceland for the weekend…” Keep it casual with A Taste of Iceland in Boston 2013, the annual cultural celebration of Iceland. Multiple (FREE) events are happening this weekend, including a free Reykjavik Calling concert on Saturday at The Paradise Rock Club around 8pm, the Icelandic Film Festival on Sunday, and the opening of an Icelandic art exhibit tonight. For more events and complete details, be sure to look here.
Looking for socialization, live music, local artists, and a variety of foods made and grown in New England? Come out to the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market this Saturday from 10am to 2pm. This week there will be live Greek/Armenian folk music, a sculpture exhibit, a goat cheese vender and Bobby Mac the Knife Sharpener. The Cambridge Winter Farmer’s Market is on 5 Callender Street (in the gymnasium of the Cambridge Community Center) , about four minutes from Central Square.
You will hit the pot of gold when it comes to dance styles at Boston’s Rainbow Tribe’s “Chapter 21” event this Saturday. At this celebration of diversity in dance there will be performances by the hip hop dance company US Crew, contemporary dance’s Boston Tap Company, and more. The event will be held at BU’s Dance Theater (915 Commonwealth) at 8pm, tickets are $20 for students and can be purchased here.
The most important thing this weekend, Huskies, is staying safe and warm. Also, while you have extra time on your hands why not look into teaching in Vietnam? Teachers for Vietnam sends teachers to institutions of higher learning in Vietnam, and provides them with travel stipends, health insurance, and in some cases supplemental salaries. Instructions on how to apply can be found here. Also, Northeastern alumna Samantha Thornley spent a year teaching English in Vietnam with TfV and would love to answer questions and share her experience with anyone who might be interested. Feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before logging off for the day, I’d like to remind Northeastern about the annual Shamrock n’Roll Talent Show and Silent Auction presented by Kappa Delta happening on Monday. All proceeds benefit Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and Prevent Child Abuse America. Make sure to buy your tickets on myNEU today!
