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.
The snow has fallen, the sidewalks have been cleared (maybe), and the storm wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been. We made it! This coming weekend will warm up ever so slightly, especially on Sunday, so be sure to enjoy being outside before a huge winter storm comes around. For now, let’s see what’s going on this weekend in Boston.
Friday, January 25
How much do you know about The Office? Can you name all of Angela’s cats? What about the background characters from season 1? The Green Briar could be asking you these questions and more at their trivia night on Friday. Registration begins at 7 p.m. for teams of six or less. The Green Briar has noted that a ticket does not guarantee a spot, so be sure to arrive early for a chance to play.
When: January 25 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Registration at 7 p.m.
Where: The Green Briar – 304 Washington Street
Price: See menu
Age Restriction: 21+
Saturday, January 26
Cory Wong will be performing at the Brighton Music Hall on January 26th. Known for his intense wrist flicking when playing guitar, he’s played on multiple Vulfpeck records and has also released solo music. The band Vulfpeck liked him so much, they named a song after him! The show is sold-out, but if you’re able to find a ticket, this show is definitely worth seeing for his guitar playing alone!
When: January 26 at 8 p.m.
Where: Brighton Music Hall – 158 Brighton Ave, Allston, MA.
Age Restriction: 18+
