The cost for the free 90 minute training and pre-holiday calorie burn is that you bring some non-perishable food items (and your free eventbrite ticket). After the workout, Public Body representatives will deliver the food you and others donated to Rosie’s Place food pantry so that others who are less fortunate can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday a bit more.

South end athletic co.How this works:  Register and print your free ticket. Bring the ticket along with non-perishable food items to South End Athletic Company on Sunday, November 23rd at 10:30 AM.

From there you will head to the parks, complete the workout and do a little good for the community!

Come down to the South End (450 Harrison Ave. to be exact) to meet local artists and view their work from 5-9PM tonight. The First Friday of each month more than 60 artists open their studios in the 450 Harrison building making it easy to walk around, socialize and see artists in their studios no matter what the weather is like outside.

Local galleries in the South End also support First Fridays by remaining open like, Boston Sculptor’s Gallery at 486 Harrison Avenue.  After chatting with local artists and viewing some of their work head over to one of your favorite South End restaurants to grab a cocktail and dinner. If you need any suggestions, give me a shout and I’m happy to play the role of concierge.

You can get more information about this monthly event by visiting the SoWa First Fridays Facebook Page.
