    Those sound like really nice

    places to be on a day like today. Wish MFA was open later (I think early close on Tuesdays) so I could get there after work. A good idea

    Always free Wednesdays after

    Always free Wednesdays after 4. Can't think of anywhere I'd rather be right now than in the Art of America's wing.

    Paulist Center, and St. Ann's

    By on

    A good friend of mine from The Paulist Center, 5 Park Street, tells me they are offering interfaith candlelight services tonight at 5:15 and 6:15. Also, St. Ann's in Dorchester is holding a candlelight vigil. I believe it is the home church of the Richard family.


    Gardner Museum

    Free entry to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum tomorrow, according to their Facebook page.

    ICA was free today?

    By on

    I was the first person into the ICA this morning and nothing was mentioned about this, I paid full price (I didn't hear about it being free until just now). There was a line of about 6 people behind me who paid, too.
