The Weekender!

Boston is a great city...especially in the summer when there are festivals galore! This weekend is no exception and the nice thing about this weekend's festivals is that they are located in different areas of Boston, so you can get around!
In the North End, we have St. Anthony's Feast, from the 27th-29th.  This festival resembles the Fisherman's Feast in spirit, but it will be much larger, with floats, parades, music and great italian american food vendors. Conveniently, it is located right by the Haymarket, so if you go on either Friday or Saturday, why not stop by here on your way home and pick up some cheap produce so that you can make some of the dishes Mary Ann Espostio will teach you to cook during her cooking demo!? The grand procession will be happening on Sunday at noon, but there are many other things to entice you throughout the festival. Visit for all the information you will need.
There is also an interesting sounding Mexican festival going on in Somerville. This has always been a favorite area of mine, food wise. With their Kickass Cupcakes store, their When Pigs Fly bakery and Gargoyle's, it is a place to be any day!  This Saturday however, from 5-8, they will be hosting a block party to rival all block parties called Fandango. Expect live music and great food from La Cantina Mexicana...and I am sure you will stumble upon a good margarita or three...feel free to browse what else is up in Somerville at
Another interesting little tid bite and something Newton, on Sunday from 12-4, the Biltmore Bar and Grille will be hosting a Vintage Car Show! And where there is a set up of 10-15 classic cars, there has to be something to nibble on, so you can expect some tasty hot dog sliders and other handy little things.

So there are a couple of things you can plug into your weekend...that is if you have time in amongst all the packing for those of you who are moving out on the 1st...that would be me...But I am fairly positive I will be able to fit in a little excursion to at least one of these places! I hope you can do the same!
