Don’t forget about last week’s suggestion of going to see Alastair Moock concert on Saturday at The Cabot in Beverly. Should be a fun show! According to their website, tickets are still available.
Also don’t forget that the Cape Ann Museum is free for residents this month and SHOULD NOT be missed!!
White the Bright 2015!
A great and inexpensive way to inspire your budding athletes….in this case, especially your daughters.
Watch Harvard Women’s Hockey take on Cornell on Saturday. They’re hoping to beat their attendance record and would love your help. If you wear White to their Bright-Landry Hockey Center (hence the White the Bright) you also get to spin the prize wheel. Total bonus is that Adult tickets are only $10 and children 12 and Under are totally FREE. So, take in an awesome Ivy League hockey game for super cheap and then spend the money you saved at Fire and Ice or somewhere else cool.
The Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary is always a no brainer…I’m sure I’ve said that before, but some weekends are even better than others…and, hence, are worth singling out and mentioning. The following activity, for example, sounds excellent.
Wingmasters Presents North American Birds of Prey at Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary.
Sun, Jan 25, 2015 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Tickets range from $10-$13 depending on whether or not you’re a member.
Come see live birds of prey up close in this indoor presentation that will introduce you to the different types of raptors including eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls. We’ll discuss the special features these birds have that enable them to be successful predators at the top of the food chain. We’ll talk about how they hunt, what they eat, and their amazing vision, hearing, and feathers. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to see birds such as the golden eagle, red-tailed hawk, saw-whet owl, and more (birds subject to change).
The Hall at Patriot Place and Bass Pro Shops
With no professional football scheduled (obviously) and Superbowl hype building by the second, I can’t think of a better weekend to make the little trek to the Hall at Patriot Place to further inspire your little ones…and get them revved up prior to the big game. Patriot Place is also a great destination for some shopping and dining. My boys are CRAZY about the Bass Pro Shops!
The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon is an exciting, innovative and interactive, modern museum experience for all ages. The Kraft family long considered the best way to honor the greatest Patriots of all time while simultaneously preserving Patriots history. They scored a touchdown when they opened The Hall in September of 2008.
The family’s investment in The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon accomplishes its goal to give Patriots fans a unique, technologically advanced venue to relive and celebrate great moments and great players and even recall some of the hard times that make all fans, including long-time season ticket holder Robert Kraft, appreciate the recent Super Bowl championships. The Hall will impress Patriots and football fans alike.
The Hall is a modern “museum” that takes guests through Patriots and New England football history in a cutting-edge way, utilizing amazing video and audio to tap into fans’ emotions in a manner never before seen in a sports museum.
Kicking it old school…. Don’t forget to go bowling and/or ice skating! This weekend you can also make a date to see Paddington because it was super cute.
Cape Ann Cinema is local, inexpensive, and easy. Cape Ann Lanes is always a fun bet as is King’s Bowling if you’re looking for a bigger adventure and a bigger bill.
Outdoor Skating in the winter is a must.
Here are some hotspots:
The Frog Pond in Boston Commons
The Charles Hotel, Cambridge
