Mount Auburn Hospital has found nine kids young enough to believe in Santa Claus – or, actually, too young to believe: this year’s Christmas babies.
A new kids’ musical, “The Light Princess.” Uncle Petey’s Christmas Comedy Spectacular! “The Wicker Man Resurrected.” “Considerable Disadvantage: The Quiz Show for Assholes.” And a Brendan Burns Quartet.
Salads are typically – okay, always – a mix of things. Unless you’re shopping at the new Star Market.
Get your local holiday chocolate at Taza. Treat your kids to a last tea at UpStairs on the Square. Cruise Somerville’s holiday homes by bike. Take to the rink at The Charles Hotel. And have a Papercut Zine holiday party.
Observe a Festivus of Comedy. Enjoy free or cheap entertainment courtesy of MIT. Hear some hip-hop at the Kulturez Dynasty Toy Drive. Get some buy-local gift shopping done. And relive “Foxtrot” as staged by Genesis.
Some will be glad Manhattan Beach, Calif., a coastal city of one-third Cambridge’s population but two-thirds its size, is too unlike Cambridge to serve as a model.
Face the fact that the end-of-the-year holiday season is here. Hear great singer/songwriter folk. See “Raiders” on the big screen again. Help comedian Jimmy Tingle help the Homeless Empowerment Project. And embark on a Sailor Moon Shoujo Spectacular!
Check out the Brickbottom & Joy Street Open Studios. Give your kids fun with Music That Paints a Picture. Experience avant-garde music and improvised dance. Tailgate at The Sinclair. And play Old School Game Show.
The Hubway bike-rental system is shutting down for the winter throughout Boston, Brookline and Somerville – but not in Cambridge, which gets a pilot program to test year-round Hubway service.
Retrace Thoreau’s steps, without leaving town. Hear music with your kids that you’ll all enjoy. Buy cupcakes and warm-weather clothing, see art and hear a tuba quartet. Put on the Ritz with “Young Frankenstein.” And take in a free folk concert.
