Seven Days and Nights in Somerville

In the recent survey I conducted, I found out that Beat readers really like the weekend things to do posts. Also in the survey, someone suggested including more ideas on things to do in Somerville during the week. That inspired me to find out what’s happening around town regularly that could spice up a ho-hum mid-week night. This isn’t an exhaustive list, so if you have any fun events to share, please leave them in the comments. Thanks to whoever suggested this post topic and to everyone who filled out the survey!
