After several days of cooler, rainy weather, the weekend looks like it’s going to be lovely! The nice weather should provide the perfect backdrop to all of the fun activities going on around town.
Free Comic Book May: Hub Comics, in Union Square, is hosting events all month long on Saturdays where they’re giving away free comics. This Saturday (May 12) stop by and pick up super hero comics. Next Saturday (May 19), Hub is giving away non-super hero comics and on May 26, the store will be giving away graphic novels to those who attended all three free Saturdays in May (the first one was last weekend).
Spring Sci-Fi Spectacular: The Post-Meridian Radio Players have shows on Friday (May 11, 8 p.m.) and Saturday (May 12, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.) at Urban Promise Church in Somerville. The Spring Sci-fi Spectacular is a live radio drama featuring two parts: The comedic adventures of “Red Shift: Interplanetary Do-Gooder” in “Havoc over Holowood” and their adaptation of “The Day The Earth Stood Still.” The show is two hours long and family friendly. Tickets are $15 or $12 for students/seniors.
Somerville Winter Farmers Market: The Armory on Highland Ave. will host the market from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. This week Josh Danoff, of Culinary Cruisers, will debut his new line of popsicles, Ocean Ave Pops featuring flavors like watermelon blueberry basil, banana with chunks of chocolate and strawberry. Just in time for the nice weather to roll in!
SoWa Open Market: Stroll, shop and sup to your heart’s content at the SoWa Open Market this Sunday (May 13), which began its season last weekend. The market features art of all kinds, clothing, food trucks, local produce and so much more. It’s a great way to spend a sunny spring Sunday!
Brimfield Antique Show: Yesterday I wrote about how to do Brimfield like a pro, so you should be all set to hit the mile-long antique show this weekend. The weather looks perfect for some treasure hunting!
Somerville Community Blood Drive: On Monday, May 14, Somerville City Hall and Somerville High School Health Career Services are holding a blood drive from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Somerville High School Field House.
Bike Month/Week: May is bike month and next week (May 14-20) is bike week here in the Bay State, making it the perfect time to get a tune-up, take your bike out for a spin on the Minuteman or just cruise around town. Davis Square will host the Rush Hour Race on Monday (May 14), which pits three local celebrities against each other as one rides a bike, one drives and the other takes the T from Redbones to Kendall Square. If you’d like to tag along, gather at Redbones at 7:45 a.m. for the race start at 8:30 a.m.
What are you looking forward to doing this weekend?
