Cheap Weekend Fun in Greater Boston for April 27-28, 2013

Happy, Happy Weekend. There are a lot of events happening this weekend in Boston, and a lot of fun budget-friendly events too. There was a lot of information and events floating around this week, and I tried my best to capture and compile everything, but I’m sure I missed a few gems.

A few events from last weekend were rescheduled for this weekend, and there are also a lot of fabulous Marathon Relief Fundraisers happening this weekend and beyond. Eventbrite has a great list of them all here and Eater Boston has a few delicious suggestions for Marathon Relief through Restaurant support.

Speaking of Restaurant support, please consider supporting restaurant staff a little extra in the upcoming weeks, especially Boylston Street establishments. Even a 26.2% tip helps, and hopefully won’t hurt your budget too much.

If you do head to the Back Bay this weekend, please remember that meter parking in the Back Bay is free through Sunday.
