In Worcester This Weekend April 11-13

Friday, April 11, 2014


This is that weird time of year when it’s warm enough for limited outdoor activities, but there’s still a couple weeks until yard sale season kicks into gear. I usually find myself slowly easing out of the lazy winter midset that mostly involves binge watching Law and Order SVU, and into a more energetic spring phase, but I need a little push.

Fortunately, there are lots of things to do this weekend that will help you shake that old winter routine. By the time Monday rolls around, you'll be in full time spring mode, and those days spent watching Hulu for hours will be a distant memory. Obviously Detective Stabler will always hold a place in my heart, but our winter fling couldn't last forever, and this is the most perfect weekend to cut him loose.

Naughty Bingo

Friday 7pm

Marlborough Moose Lodge 

67 Fitchburg St
I get that Marlborough is kind of pushing it for Worcester things to do, but this is Naughty Bingo, and I’m willing to bet it would be a first for most people.
It’s $25 for three cards, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Athena’s Cup for breast cancer awareness, plus you’ll have the chance to win any number of “Athena’s Home Novelty” products.
I’ll be enjoying the pizza over at the cash bar while I check “naughty bingo” off my bucket list and try to make some new friends.

Book Sale

Saturday 10am - 2pm

8 Newton St West Boylston
There’s nothing like a morning of book hunting to offset a crazy night spent playing Naughty Bingo at a Moose Lodge.
This is the last day of the Beaman Public Library’s Annual Book Sale, and I plan on getting there bright and early to score some good reads.
You can fill a brown grocery bag for $5, but please refrain from loading up on five minute mysteries, I’m trying to score a bunch to read on the beach all summer.

Farmers Market

Saturday 11am - 2pm

Canal District Farmers Market

138 Green St
Normally I do all of my shopping at Price Rite because I am on an incredibly fixed income, but every once in a while I like to treat myself.
The weekly Canal District Farmers Market is a great place to support local businesses and reward yourself with organic goodies after clawing your way through the old rat race all week long. I’m thinking fresh flowers from FiveFork Farms would look lovely on my desk, or I could splurge on Elzire’s Acres goats milk soap.
Either way, I’m not leaving until I stuff my face with at least one cupcake from ConoBeni Confections. Vendors rotate every week, but you can always score tons of fresh meats and veggies from nearby farms.

Take a Hike

Boynton Park

Mower St
After this winter, I feel like it could still start snowing at any point, but I’m going to cautiously trust Harvey Leonard and gear up for nice weather this weekend.
I have to spend Sunday with my new Dungeons and Dragons crew, but everyone else should take advantage of spring at Boynton Park. It has marked trails, natural cascades, and is Worcester’s unofficial off-leash dog park.
There’s usually a dog party occurring in the baseball fields, but my basset hound and I are loners, so we stick to the trails. Either way, it’s a fun spot to get some fresh air and a little exercise.

9pm - 1am


148 Grove Street
I’m not into that whole “Sunday funday” mentality, but Cinemageddon at Ralphs is my favorite way to end the weekend.
Anthony Bridgford projects a movie every Sunday in the diner, ranging from cult classics to b horror flicks. This week’s showcase is “Uncle Buck”, and if that isn’t enough to catch your attention, hotdogs are included to the usual menu of burgers and chili as an added bonus.
So get cozy in a booth, brace yourself for the upcoming week with an ice cold PBR, and die of laughter as John Candy kills it in one of his classic films.
