The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series at the ICA is back again this year on Sunday, 8/25/13 at 1pm; however, for the first time this is a (free) ticketed event and tickets did sell out quickly. However, I’m sure you can walk slowly nearby to catch a few dives or maybe catch a few practice dives the day before. (Good tips on this Reddit Thread).

Also, on Sunday, 8/25/13 is Go Topless Day in Boston starting at 2pm at Boston Common… just a FYI.

And don’t forget… Boston Restaurant Week is currently in full-swing and ends towards the end of the week on Friday, August 3oth! Hope you have a great weekend!
