Beat the Late Winter Blues in Boston With March’s Comedy Shows
Comedy

The weather in Boston this winter has been absolutely miserable. With even more snow in the forecast, it’s very easy to feel sad and down as summer seems so far away. Rather than sulking while walking between massive mounds of snow, there are several comedy shows around Boston this month that will hopefully cheer you up. Here are the ones I’m excited for. More

Ugh, March. You’re just a rebound after our unhealthy and abusive relationship with February finally imploded. Just maintain minimal standards of personal hygiene and offer to pick up the check once in a while/don’t drop six feet of snow on us and we’ll be ecstatic. Start the month off right with foodie events for every budget, a new adaptation of a classic love story, and lots more.

See ya later, February! Good riddance to one of the worst months in Boston history: The most snow we’ve ever had in a month, the most expletive-riddled tweets ever directed at a single public agency (the T), and the most times you slipped on some ice and almost fell but didn’t but almost kind of wished you did because you could give up and just lay there until spring. It’s hard to believe it was only last month that the Patriots won the Super Bowl. Wait, that happened in February? February 1st? GREATEST MONTH EVAH.

Somehow February is the shortest month of the year but still feels like the longest, like how stupid tiny dogs bark the most because they don’t know how stupid and tiny they are. Shut up, February, no one likes you and it’s really not cool for your owner to bring you on the T. Here’s some stuff to do this week to help you make it to March, which is also awful, but it’s one step closer to not-awful months like April and May.

Between all the events rescheduled from last weekend and lots of new stuff, you have plenty of options to get out and support local artists and businesses. They’ll be extra happy to see you, and you’ll be extra happy to be there, probably because it took four hours on the T, but you made it, so have some fun and forget all the times you cursed out all of humanity in the past week.

It looks like this might be the first time in about month that I didn’t track down a bunch of interesting events for you to get excited about only to find out they’re canceled because of a debilitating blizzard. Just lingering snow showers and dangerously cold wind chills this week? Sounds like a reason to get out and celebrate! Luckily it’s Mardi Gras so there’s plenty of food to be eaten and music to be enjoyed and fun to be had.

Converse CONS Project Brings Zine Making to Skating Community
DIY

Zines and skating have always gone hand in hand. Skating creates communities that have always been able to share and interact through cut up DIY zines. On Saturday, the Converse CONS project held a Zine Making and Printing workshop to teach and foster the love of the art with young creators. The workshop was presented by Zine maker Andrew Martin Scott, photographer Jai Tanju, and skateboarder Quim Cardona.  More
