Weekends are certainly the time to get out and enjoy a concert or an art exhibit, but have you ever tried relaxing in front of an artsy movie or some jazz after a long day at work? Take advantage of an empty restaurant or easy downtown parking on a Monday night and plan an evening at The Woodward. How about some Camp Washington Chili and the American Sign Museum on Thursday?
This week begins with a film about office work and ends with a talk about how finding a place to put your car at work shapes our lives. But there are many other options in between: scads of arts and crafts (indoor and out), music (Duke Ellington to Electro Swing to Mambo), more films (from small town Mass. to revolutionary India to a Filipina country singer), hip-hop poetry and soil-to-soil fashion. Goodness!
There’s a chill in the air at last, and darkness claims more of our days. That gives us extra time to enjoy evening events, of course, but, with All Hallows Eve drawing near, it encourages the things that go bump in the night to come out to play, too. Whether your taste drifts more toward the light or the dark, we unequivocally have you covered this week.
