You did it, Boston. You survived another endless winter. Except it did end, finally, and now you can go outside without making sure you brought your Chapstick and cradling your phone to your bosom to preserve its battery life. Throw on a hoodie, maybe a light jacket, and check out some of these 200 events happening in April, possibly Boston’s greatest month of the year (that T.S. Eliot was full of crap).

A rare April snowstorm is forming over the Atlantic seaboard. The National Weather Service (NOAA) is forecasting an “April Nor’easter” of unprecedented proportions, with 24+ inches of snow possible in Boston. The storm is slated to start on Monday, April 6th and continue through the early morning of April 8th.
BRING ON SPRING!

Get ready for another week of fun beer tastings, cocktail workshops, theater and music events around Boston. Except on Wednesday, April 1, when there aren’t any good events. APRIL FOOLS! There totally are some good events that day. Man, we got you good. You should have seen your face just then. (more…)

Year of the GOAT confirmed. This past weekend the greatest basketball player of all time (Michael Jordan) and the greatest football player of all time (Tom Brady) got together for a pickup basketball game at Baker’s Bay Ocean & Golf Club in the Bahamas. The two later played a game of pickup golf with PGA golfer Keegan Bradley (last pic).

This weekend’s event recommendations are all about pairings: Pair your morning run with a burger, your dinner with delicious beers, and your wine with the confidence that you’re actually drinking good wine and not something you picked based on the alcohol percentage and how cool the label art looked.

Celebrate Women’s History Month this week with events recognizing women in business, the arts, and sure why not, on The Simpsons: Lisa is the show’s smartest character and Marge functions as its moral center, yeah she’s kind of a wet blanket but guys need that wet blanket around to put out the fires from our wacky schemes and general incompetence.

The clocks on our phones and cable boxes will spring forward Saturday night, which means one fewer hour to party or sleep or hurry up and finish House of Cards so we can finally talk about it. That still leaves plenty of time this weekend to do your civic duty, see history reenacted, or stop by some free festivals. (more…)

Ugh, March. You’re just a rebound after our unhealthy and abusive relationship with February finally imploded. Just maintain minimal standards of personal hygiene and offer to pick up the check once in a while/don’t drop six feet of snow on us and we’ll be ecstatic. Start the month off right with foodie events for every budget, a new adaptation of a classic love story, and lots more. (more…)

See ya later, February! Good riddance to one of the worst months in Boston history: The most snow we’ve ever had in a month, the most expletive-riddled tweets ever directed at a single public agency (the T), and the most times you slipped on some ice and almost fell but didn’t but almost kind of wished you did because you could give up and just lay there until spring. It’s hard to believe it was only last month that the Patriots won the Super Bowl. Wait, that happened in February? February 1st? GREATEST MONTH EVAH. (more…)
