This week’s events roundup comes with the caveat that half of this stuff is going to be canceled or rescheduled due to the looming snowmaggedopocalypse, and anyways there’s a decent chance we’ll all be huddled together around a single Yankee Candle in our powerless homes for a couple days and the idea of leaving to go to an “event” will sound insane. Just make sure you can travel safely and events are still on, and if not, you can always go sledding.

Just really soak it all in. But if you can carve out some leisure time, you can learn to make a sweet cell phone film, voice your opinion about the 2024 Olympics, or see a new play from a “New Girl” writer.

The middle of January is about as bad as winter gets around here, so we won’t blame you for staying in all weekend and watching Netflix. However, your girlfriend WILL blame you when she finds out you watched a whole season of “Mad Men” without her and you were supposed to watch it together. So it’s probably in your relationship’s best interest to go out and catch a play, a gallery opening, or a beach party that will help you forget about winter altogether.
