Weekend Roundup

mfa-art-in-bloom.jpgHappy Friday everyone; I hope this week offered some normalcy and routine for you and your family. It's going to be a beautiful weekend and there's lots to do in and around the city -- here are 30 event picks, lovingly curated for your consideration. Also, yesterday I finally was able to spend some time at the Boston Marathon memorial at Copley. What a moving experience; so full of love and heartache. I encourage you to visit and pay your respects; there's so much good in our city.
