April Picks

Sing your heart out. Oh, MJ, I am game to singing to your old school classics. Pull out the silver glove and head over to Coolidge Corner on 4/5 for a Michael Jackson sing-a-long.

Need a laugh? Margaret Cho hits up the Orpheum Theatre on 4/5 and Jerry Seinfield is @ the Wang Theater 4/18 & 4/19.

Want to people watch? Head over to the last few miles of the Boston Marathon on Patriot's Day, Monday 4/21. Comm Ave, Beacon Street and Hereford and Boylston St. are all fun spots and places to see Lance Armstrong, who's running this year.

Want to be a little more on the cutting edge? Check out some up and coming directors and stars at the Boston Independent Film Festival. Jay from Project Runway Season One has a doc in the festival. Click here for more on this festival.

Be cultured. Spanish artists reign at the MFA starting in April. El Greco to Velazquez opens on 4/20 and a more contemporary Spanish artist Antoni Lopez Garcia's exhibit opens 4/13.

Treat yourself. Spa week is 4/14-4/20, and 500 + spas in the Boston area are participating with treatments at $50. Click here for more.
