TUES 7/19: Shakespeare, Grains, Dylan

If you want to grab a free drink or two on Wednesday at Splash Ultra Lounge near Chinatown, you might still be able to RSVP for another Stuff Boston's "Year of Party" things.

I assume biking geeks know about the "bike-in movie" event at the Papercut Zine Library deep in Somerville.

And it's a good night to be in Jamaica Plain (below).


TUES 7/19

"Shakespeare On Love"
at Art Park/South Street Mall & Courts, about 54 South St, Jamaica Plain

One of the best perennial cheap thrills in town has to be "Shakespeare on the Common" every summer since 1996.

In association with the professional production of "All's Well That Ends Well" from WED 7/27 to SUN 8/14, students from the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's Summer Academy Apprenticeship are going to different parks and performing a compilation of Shakespeare sonnets and scenes on the theme of love.

I'm not sure how much performance space they have at this location, but the organizers know better than me.

Maria Speck, "Ancient Grains for Modern Meals"
at Porter Square Books, 25 White St, Cambridge (near Star Market)

Cooking with stuff like quinoa doesn't have to be intimidating. Maria speck might even be able to share some ideas to make it tasty...

TUES 7/19

"If Not For You - A Tribute to Bob Dylan": Benefit for JP Music Fest
at Midway Cafe, 3496 Washington St, Jamaica Plain

Performers include: Rick Berlin, Jeffrey Chasse, Adam Aslan, Heather Foxwell, David Wildman, Cloud Factory

If the schedule I got my hands on is correct, more than 20 performers are going to take turns and perform a little less than 50 Dylan tunes from classics to well-loved deep tracks -- so I assume they plan to start on time.

Help the JP community pay for August's Music Fest.
