BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Restaurant Week, the Boston Tea Party and more are up this weekend.
Here's what up to eat! Perhaps you've heard, Restaurant Week is now Dine Out Boston. Click here for the list of participating restaurants. Most offer a prix fixe lunch or dinner menus (or both) from March 16 to 21 and then again from March 23 to 28. This time around there are three pricing tiers, lunch menus are available for $15, $20 or $25 and dinner menus are priced at $28, $33 and $38. Price and number of courses vary by restaurant.
Here's what's up for families, and it's also free. For the month of March, every Friday, all Imax films at the Mugar Omni Theater at the Museum of Science are free. You have to pick up tickets at the box office the day of the show only and it's first come first serve. Check the daily schedule for upcoming show times.
Here's what's shaking, the Boston Tea Party is this weekend! It's a big four day swing-dance convention. It started more than a decade ago and brings in about 1,400 dancers from all around the world and has workshops, performances and exhibitions. If swing's your thing, it's worth checking out.
What's up for film buffs? If your love of the Irish wasn't satisfied with St. Patrick's Day, the Irish film festival Boston returns for a 14th year. It's the largest of its kind outside of Ireland. It runs this weekend at the historic Somerville Theater. For ticket purchases and further information on the festival, click here.
And here's what's good, this Saturday, March 22 from 7 to 10 a.m., the Walk for Hospice will benefit Hospice of the South Shore. The walk is only a mile at the South Shore Plaza and it's family friendly. The walk raises money for more than 500 patients to live their lives with dignity, joy and love in the care of highly skilled nurses, doctors, social workers, spiritual counselors and more. And they care for all patients and families regardless of their ability to pay.
