Cheap Weekend Fun in Greater Boston for July 13-14, 2013

Happy (Almost) Weekend! As I mentioned yesterday, I teamed up with car-sharing app Sidecar who will be providing free rides to certain events this weekend, including free rides to the MFA today! This is a great chance to check out some great (and free) events this weekend with a free ride too!

Here are the best events in the city this weekend for any budget:
