Party Train: Outdoor Movies, Fashion & Johnny Cash Tribute Band

Early this week but I wound up with a free night!  This week is a weird mix of everything you could ever want – Blues, Johnny Cash, The best of the Jackson 5 & traditional irish tunes.  Vodka fest, free sushi, pizza and barbecue. Film Noir and the breakfast club, blogging meet ups and “finding your center”.  Before any of that, this:

Since it’s early, I will definitely have to update as the event emails come rolling in. Check back often! Send me stuff you think is cool –Updated “Upcoming” too!

Yours in making the most of the rest of the summer,



Free and Cheap: 

  • Sinsations is moving. Everything is on sale until the end of the month 
  • Michael’s 50% off:
  • Are you a teacher? 20% off charming charlies: here
  • Course materials from over 1900 MIT classes: Get Smart


  • Asia Market : AMAZING. Get the spicy fish. Its a fabulous totally authentic cafe in the back of a market, much like teji
  • Baby As: Their famous soup is just really good. The rest of it mediocre. I do find myself drawn to the purples even with their $8 price tag
  • Momos: Hot and unorganized, lots of people there for a Sunday but not sure that I’ll be back when its still 100 degrees outside
  • Katz: Really enjoyed my buffalo chicken salad. A little pricey but the convenience factor is huge when you’re upstairs at momos

 Check out

  • His & Hers night at Red Shed Tavern: Best of brit pop
  • Vino Vino: Go get half price appetizers during happy hour (the mussels are amazing!!!)
  • Black Monday Happy Hour, with black and white classic film noirs kicking off around 5 p.m. Shangrila
