What to do this week: May 21-27

Summer Time in BostonAs we look forward to Memorial Day Weekend (and hope for good weather) the calendar gets progressively busier through the week. However, I’d like to highlight two events happening during the week: ART SE: The South End Party for Art on Tuesday and Boston Ballet’s La Sylphide (Opening Night),which opens on Thursday and runs through June 10.

There are so many parties happening, I’m going to ask that you check out the full list below but here is a sampling: FASCINATION FridayTea Dance in OGTSo Hot Saturdaes Decades Party and the biggest party of all, Military Ball 2018 with ABEL

If you’d prefer to enjoy a drink off the dance floor check out Rooftop Cocktails with Boston’s LGBTQ & Friends Meetup or Boston Ironsides Harpoon Brewery Beer Tasting (both on Friday). 

Also of note are several new summer shows that open this weekend including the Dueling Drag Divas up in OGT, Miss Richfield 1981 is performing in a new venue in Ptown and  Thirsty Burlington performs All Things Cher at The Crown and Anchor.
