Things to Do this Weekend - the Hangover Edition

No, I don't mean the hangover film...these are things to do to get over your hangover you are building up tonight. How does free ice skating and cupcakes sound?

There are a bunch of brunch options for you on Friday (new Parish Cafe in the South End, Toro, Johnny D's, Sound Bites, etc) and of course movies (Avatar, anyone?) but how about after brunch you skate the day away? DCR is offering "First Day Skate and First Day Hike" this year which offers free ice skating for all ages at two public skating rinks around the City and free hikes around state parks. The two rinks that are participating in this event are the Murphy Memorial Skating Rink
in South Boston and Kelly Skating Rink in JP(Stony Brook T Stop – Orange Line). For information on both the rinks and the parks hiking schedule, click here.

Lastly, as we all know, boston gal loves her cupcakes. So the Ritz Carlton is hosting its last Ho Ho Holiday Tea (with cupcakes) on Saturday. You get tea and a flight of 5 mini cupcakes for $22. Sounds fabulous. Click here fore reservations and more.

Happy New Year Everyone!
