On the Solomon McCown & Company Facebook page, we've started a feature called 5 for Friday. Every week, one member of our staff presents a list of anything that strikes his or her fancy — a fun way to start off the weekend.
In this week’s 5 for Friday, SM& Intern Caitlin Driscoll shares her Top Five ways to soak up the sun and enjoy the summer fun Boston has to offer. 1. Catch a game at Fenway Park: As a Boston native, I can attest that Fenway Park is unarguably a favorite destination in this city—especially in the summertime. Dirty Water, Sweet Caroline, Tessie, the Green Monster—what’s not to love? And another thing to love: Guess who’s in first place right now? I’ll give you a hint—not the Yankees! 2. Walk through the Arnold Arboretum: If you’re looking to do something on a budget, look no further—admission is free! Take a stroll over to the Emerald Necklace for a tour or a solo trip. Just make sure you take advantage while the days are still long and the weather is nice—the Arboretum officially closes at sundown. 3. Outdoor concerts/movies: I love outdoor concerts and events on a nice summer night, and Boston has some great venues if you’re looking for something to do. (Jay Z/Justin Timberlake at Fenway, anyone?) Also, check out the Hatch Shell for their “Free Friday Flicks” at sunset—tonight is Madagascar 3! 4. Restaurant Week: I’m sure it won’t take much convincing, but you should definitely partake in Boston’s Restaurant Week on August 18-23 and 25-30 if you want to eat Boston’s best cuisine for half the price. According to the website’s pricing information, Boston's best restaurants will be offering prix fixe menus including 2-course lunch for $15.13, 3-course lunch for $20.13, and 3-course dinner for $38.13. 5. Anything on the Waterfront: I have to admit that I spend most of my lunch breaks down by the boats at the waterfront. It’s beautiful, breezy, peaceful, and sunny. But fear not my fellow pigmentally-challenged friends, there’s some shade as well. Head on over to read a book, eat an ice cream cone, people watch—whatever. Take a little me time. You deserve it.
