Is it just me, or has this week dragged on and on? Relieve that feeling and have some fun at some awesome events in Cambridge and Boston this weekend! It’s shaping up to be a good one, too–complete with Dine Out Boston, a family-friendly urban music festival, and Ales for ALS.
Events in Cambridge and Boston on Friday, August 22
Open Taps Series for Ales for ALS
Samuel Adams Brewery
30 Germania Street, Jamaica Plain
Not in the mood to dump a bucket of ice water on your head? That’s okay, I’d rather donate money to a good cause, too.
Check two things off of your Boston “to-do and to-see” list this Friday: hit up the Samuel Adams Brewery in Jamaica Plain and do something good for ALS.
The $20 admission fee gets you a pint of a “hoppy Pale Ale” made specifically for Ales for ALS, four beer samples, and a delicious food pairing at one of the four Open Taps Nights this summer.
All proceeds will be donated to the ALS Therapy Development Institute, there’s beer, and your clothes stay dry. Has there ever been a better deal?

Good Will Hunting Screening – A Tribute to Robin Williams
New Park on A Street, Boston
8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Celebrate Robin Williams’ connection to Boston with a public screening of one of his most well-known films in the heart of the film’s setting.
If you don’t want to travel all the way out to Fort Point, honor one of the greatest actors of our time and host your own viewing of Good Will Hunting. No excuses–it’s on Netflix.
An Evening of Shel Silverstein
565 High Street, Dedham
This event is unfortunately not a poetry reading by Shel Silverstein, but it’s worth checking out nonetheless.
Along with his famous poetry collections Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic, Silverstein also wrote a number of one-act plays that will be performed this Saturday night.
Paradise will be serving up wine, beer, coffee, and great food all night, so hop on the Fairmount line of the commuter rail and check it out!
