If you love the Upper Crust, then this is the deal for you! Groupon is offering a daily deal for $25 worth of thin-crust pizza & calzones for just $12. The details are below if you are interested. Please note that I am an affiliate with Groupon and you can read my disclosure here.
Okay, so I’m not going to lie… this sounds very interesting, and usually I’m big into free burgers and cheap ice cream lately, but hey, I can’t pass up free and intriging fun, especially on an anticipated beautiful day.
So, Saturday, August 25th starting at 4pm to 6:30pm, you can stop by the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) to witness the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2012. I believe this is the only stop in the USA, and you can watch for free!
If you find this as fascinating and intriguing as I do, you can find out more information here.
Stop by Boston City Hall TODAY from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (or as long as supplies last) to receive a free Son of Baconator Cheeseburger from Wendy’s!
There will also be free frosty’s, gift cards, and bacon-themed merchandise and games!
Thanks, Cheap Thrills for the heads up!
Here are the free and fun summer Friday events in and around Boston for Friday, August, 24th sponsored by the Highland Street Foundation! This is the second to last Friday of free attractions, so don’t pass up this great opportunity!
- Boston Harbor Island Alliance
- USS Constitution Museum
- American Textile History Museum
- Old Sturbridge Village
- Basketball Hall of Fame
Also, on Friday nights in the summer you can watch free films at the Hatch Shell and the Boston Harbor Hotel. The feature movie at the Hatch Shell sponsored by WBZ & DCR this week is The Lorax. This is actually the last free movie offered at the Hatch Shell this summer, so make sure you stop by! The Boston Harbor Hotel is sponsoring Dirty Dancing and is the second to last free movie offered by them. Both free movies start right after the sunset!
I heard this promotion last night on the radio, and thought it was really cool! Head to Central Fiat of Norwood from now til August 31st to test drive a Fiat. Bring a promotional postcard (details in link below) with you to receive a gift card for a FREE ITALIAN DINNER once you test drive one of these cute Italian cars! It looks like the participating restaurants are Terramia Ristorante, Antico Forno, & Taranta! (Davio’s in Foxboro may also be participating, but I’m not certain).
*Note it looks like the info on the website and the terms are a little different in different spots so you may want to call first if you are interested for clarification. Also, it looks like they are only giving out 100 gift cards too, so keep that in mind*
I will be posting the Highland Street Foundation Free Fun Fridays listing later this week, but I wanted to highlight one of my favorite free attractions early so you can plan ahead if you are interested.
This Friday, August 24, 2012 there will be free ferry rides to George’s Island & Spectacle Island! Here is what Highland Street Foundation says about these free ferry tickets:
“Free tickets for the Harbor Islands Express Ferry will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis at Long Wharf-North, 66 Long Wharf, in downtown Boston (near the Aquarium subway station). The ticket window will open at 8:00 a.m. The ferry leaves every 30 minutes starting at 8:30 am, with a 3 hour window to return. Each adult in line may pick up a maximum of 4 tickets. (There will be no special arrangements for groups of more than 4 to be on the same ferry). Tickets will be handed out for the earliest ferry, then the next, and so on, until all ferry seats for the day are distributed – last year, all tickets were distributed by 10:30 am”
I love going to the Boston Harbor Islands because it makes me feel like I’m on vacation without even leaving the city! It’s even better, because I can get that vacation feeling this Friday for free! Can’t beat that!
