• Are you tough enough to take a dip in the freezing cold Boston Harbor this weekend? Do you feel like giving back to environmental protection groups that serve your harbor and Mass beaches? If so, you are in luck because Harpoon Brewery is hosting the 10th Annual Shamrock Splash  The splash is at 11am, and directly after you can start to warm up by drinking beer and enjoying a beach party!

• You have surely seen the movie Parasite by now right?! The 4x Oscar winning film is being played at the Trident Booksellers & Cafe on Newbury Street starting at 7pm. This is type of movie that would be simply amazing to watch in a public setting due to its suspense and no shortage of plot twists. You are sure to be on the edge of your seat at the Trident Cinema Cafe: Parasite event!
