13 Fun Weekend Picks

olympics-cupcakes.jpgWell, so, I'm super excited it is Friday. It's been an incredibly hectic week here, punctuated by the fact that my computer seems to be dying and my e-mail is totally wonky. Clearly, the universe is telling me to take the weekend off, which is in good time because my baby sister Sharon is getting married tomorrow -- so joyful! Meanwhile, here are 13 weekend picks to enjoy. And if you end up heading to Summer Arts Weekend do not drive (there's a lot of construction going on right now, which has killed many parking spots) and do visit the new Georgetown Cupcake on Newbury Street. Laurel and I stopped in yesterday -- major thumbs up for the chocolate ganache and coconut cupcakes!
