If you live in the US, you probably are looking at a long holiday weekend and with temperatures in Boston predicted to hit the high 80s on Saturday, it could well be the first beach weekend of the summer.
However you celebrate this weekend, I hope you have fun. Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet.
There is plenty happening in Boston, Ogunquit and Ptown for Memorial Day Weekend. If you’re looking for an alternative to the bar scene it happens to be opening weekend for Boston Ballet’s La Sylphide, but if you’re interested in something a little less traditional check out Gay Shorts from the Open Theatre Project at Club Cafe. Up in Ogunquit the Dueling Drag Divas are back at Mainestreet and in Ptown both Miss Richfield 1981 and Thirsty Burlington performs All Things Cher shows open this weekend.
For those of you looking to go dancing check out FASCINATION Friday, Tea Dance in OGT, So Hot Saturdaes Decades Party, H E R O E S Saturday, Dont Ask Dont Tell: Eleganza and the biggest party of all, Military Ball 2018 with ABEL; are all happening – just to highlight a few dance party options.
