City Happenings: April 17th & 18th

Saturday, April 17th 


Hanging Nasturtiums at Gardner Museum

  • Hanging Nasturtiums at the Gardner – It's the last weekend to catch the lovely cascades of Nasturtiums at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum before they're gone! "Cascades of flowering nasturtium vines make their brief—but dramatic—appearance above the courtyard, celebrating the arrival of spring at the Museum. (Nasturtium blooms last about three weeks.) The annual Hanging Nasturtiums display continues an annual tradition started by Isabella during the week before Easter, marking the return of color to the Fenway."



Owl's Nest Beer Garden on the Charles River Esplanade

  • 20+ Beer Gardens in Boston – The Boston Calendar has rounded up more than twenty beer gardens around Boston now open or soon-to-be. A great way to get out of your unit safely, and enjoy the arrival of Spring blooms. 



Gin & Gender

  • Gin & Gender –  Gin has a long history in America, so do cocktails. In this online interactive class, join Alejandra and Daniela, a queer Latinx couple who have bartended for over 10 years and learn how to make 3 delicious gin cocktails step by step. We’ll talk about history and background of each cocktail and how the gender stereotypes influence how the cocktails have been made until today.



Sunday, April 18th


Memorial Drive Recreation Sundays

  • Memorial Drive Recreation Sundays – Every Sunday from the last Sunday of April until the 2nd Sunday of November, Memorial Drive is closed to traffic between Western Avenue and Mount Auburn Street, but open to recreation. Bring your bike, inline skates, running shoes, strollers or walking feet to take advantage of the unique access to this normally busy road with views of the Charles each summer Sunday.
