Sneak Peek -- SUN 6/14

Really... More to come, but think about these...


SUN 6/14

8:30 am to 5:30 pm
Ferry Trip to Spectacle or Georges Island
from Boston's Best Cruises, Long Wharf - North, Boston (North End, near Columbus Park & Marriott)

You pretty much have to go at 8am in the morning to grab a ticket (yet don't necessarily have to leave right away), but...

FRI 7/17 is the next free day (online tix available 7/1)

SUN 6/14

9am to 2pm
Corvette Day 2009

Corvette = the American Ferrari (imho). There could be about 75 cars on display.

SUN 6/14

"10,000 Questions": Opening Ceremony
at 1 Brattle Square, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Somerville's question man is out on the road, and answering stuff Tibetan-paryer-wheel style. Music and dancing to ensue.

SUN 6/14

Noon to 6:30pm
Bloomsday Boston 2009
at Devlin Hall, 140 Comm Ave, Chestnut Hill (BC campus)

Maybe this is an entre into James Joyce -- or maybe enough to sound intellectual in the future...

2:30pm to 5:30pm
Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School Cabaret: Life Drawing Class
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$7 / 18+

Drink, draw, and be merry.

This month's model: Sugar Dish of Babes in Boinkland, who has been a cool model before.
A couple of tips: Come on time to get a seat up front. Keep it small so others can crowd in around you. Bring your stuff in a milk crate so you have something to sit on or put your stuff on. (we have lots of seats, but more is helpful)
SUN 6/14

"Fairly Unbalanced: Writing Political Satire in the Twenty-First Century": Panel Discussion
at First Parish Church, 3 Church St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

w/ Percival Everett, Lise Haines, Jimmy Tingle, Baron Wormser, and unfortunately not Nurmuhemmet Yasin

SUN 6/14
