cheap weekend fun!

As a reminder I am out on vacation, so I compiled my info earlier than usual. Please make sure you do your due-diligence and ensure event details haven’t changed, and please leave events in the comments if I missed any great weekend happenings!

If you are not busy moving (or helping someone move) this weekend and are around looking for something to do, here are a few fun things to check out this weekend that’s pretty affordable for this extended Labor Day Weekend!

Frank Hatch Free Day at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum: Monday, September 2, 2013: Frank Hatch Day traditionally has been on New Year’s, but Labor Day is great weather wise to visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for free timed-entry so everyone can enjoy the museum and gardens!
