You don’t have to venture far from the Yard to find new sources of entertainment.  Here is FM’s list of things to do for those looking to get out within the realm of the bubble.


The Washington Street Art Center

If you’re looking for something more highbrow this weekend, head down to Union Square. This Saturday, the Washington Street Art Center is debuting a gallery of things that go BOOM! The gallery is open from noon to 4 p.m. There will also be food and live music by James Forrest from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

321 Washington St., Somerville.


Bloc 11

For the future criminal mastermind or someone with an affinity for small spaces, check out Bloc 11, a coffee shop that has seating inside of an old bank vault. If you’re starting your weekend early they have an open mic night on Thursday, March 31st—sign-up starts at 6 p.m.

11 Bow St., Somerville.


Bukowski’s Tavern

If you ever dreamed of being on “Wheel of Fortune” but never got the chance, go down to Bukowski’s and spin the beer wheel. Yes, there’s a beer wheel, and you’ll have to head over there to figure out how it works. Rated highly for its pub grub and beer selection, Budowski’s is located just a short walk from Central Square.

1281 Cambridge St., Cambridge.


Newbury Comics

Yes, CDs still exist. Cozy up, or party it up, with one of this week’s new releases, which include records by Radiohead and Snoop Dogg, unfortunately without Katy Perry.

36 JFK St., Cambridge.
