A Weekend In Boston: Events Throughout the City February 1 – 3

Welcome to A Weekend in Boston, a weekly post about events occurring over the upcoming weekend throughout all of Boston. For events coming up in the North End, see the event calendar. For more information on each event, click on the event title.

It seems as though each time I mention the weather being not so bad, the next week is worse. We’re currently experiencing a polar vortex, and if you were like me driving home Wednesday night, you couldn’t even see in front of you because of the snow! It’s getting to be that time of year when we just never know what’s next. Freezing temperatures below the norm are followed by 50 degree days. What else will this winter bring? However this weekend turns out, try to stay warm! Go Pats!
