Weekend Guide: March 16-19
Spend St. Patrick’s Day weekend with our top six must-see events including the best spots to celebrate the luck of the Irish and ways to "go green."
If you’re in search of a pot of gold or better yet, a place to grab a pint of Guinness or enjoy corned beef and cabbage this St. Patrick’s Day weekend, we’ve got you covered. Cambridge is home to ten Irish pubs and restaurants (including the oldest family owned pub in Cambridge) to give you an authentic Irish experience that will have you feeling incredibly lucky to live or visit Cambridge.
Visit it: All weekend
This Friday will be your last day to enjoy Dine Out Boston (in Cambridge) until it returns in August! That means you’ll have to wait until the end of summer to enjoy special prix fixe lunch and dinner menus, along with extra special prices.
Eat it: Ends Friday night
After you’ve found a leprechaun, follow the end of the rainbow to the Museum of Science in East Cambridge for an interactive and education event. This weekend, the museum will explore the connection between brain and technology at their event Health Fair: Brain Works. Visitors will meet guest scientists and engineers throughout the exhibit halls, participate in activities, listen to panel discussions, and have the unique opportunity to touch a real brain.
Learn it: Friday from 9:30a-12:30p and Saturday from 10a-3p.
MUSIC + CELEBRATE
There’s no better way to celebrate the day dedicated to leprechauns, the color green and four-leaf clovers than with Brian O’Donovan at the Sanders Theatre. The 12th annual St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn has become a time-honored tradition here in Cambridge that is not to be missed. Audience members will see some of their favorite musical performers, as well as some new performers to help you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in true Irish style.
Love it: 3p and 7:30p
Jam out this St. Patrick's Day at Porter Square's favorite music haven, Toad. You'll officially be considered one of the "cool kids" with a visit to Toad under your belt. On Saturday night, grab a pint of beer and enjoy music from the Black Mountain Symphony, who have prepared an evening of tradition Irish tunes with their own Indie sound.
Hear it: 10p
There is no better way to get to know about unique city and culture than through our beer. Since St. Patrick’s Day is this Friday, we thought it was only appropriate to highlight our Cambridge Beer Guide this weekend. Whether you’re looking for a self-proclaimed “funky” beer, something light and fruity, or a Double IPA you’re bound to find something that fits your fancy at one of our many Cambridge breweries.
We couldn’t talk about everything green in this weekend guide and not mention ways to “go green” when visiting Cambridge. Here in Cambridge, Massachusetts we proudly lead the way for a greener future and we couldn’t be more proud. From bike sharing, restaurants that serve locally sourced ingredients, parks with lush green space and much more, we truly have it all. To see just how we stay so green all year long, click here.
