slides: In Worcester This Weekend: March 29-30

Friday, March 28, 2014

 

This is a huge weekend for the Worcester Art Museum, and I’m just as excited as anybody to check out the Knights! exhibit debuting their Higgins Armory collection.

The museum is hosting an opening party on Friday night,--which sounds like a bunch of fun--that includes a weekend long renaissance faire with face painting, live music, a meet and greet with your local blacksmith, and tons of other activities for everyone to enjoy.

I would love to spend an afternoon learning how to use a samurai sword, but crowds stress me out, so I’m going to put my visit on hold and have a Worcester weekend of my own.

Postcard Show

12th Annual Greater Worcester Postcard and Ephemera Show 

Saturday from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm the Spencer Knights of Columbus (10 Meadow Road) will be hosting 15 postcard dealers from various states and offering free postcard appraisals given by the Central Mass Postcard Club president. This is real. One time I came across a cat show in Sutton at a VFW hall, and it was like entering an alternate universe. I’m assuming this is going to be along those lines. It’s okay if you can’t make it, I’ll have a full recap first thing Sunday morning.

The Breakfast Bar

119 June Street, Worcester

I’m still reeling from the loss of Bagel and Friends on 119 June Street, but life goes on even after the IRS seizes your favorite breakfast spot. The Breakfast Bar has recently opened in the old Bagel and Friends, and I plan on checking it out. I’m unsure if they will continue the styrofoam plate tradition of their predecessors, but apparently their menu consists of locally sourced food and coffee, so it’s worth a poke.

Thrift Shopping

Emmanuel Baptist Church

717 Main St, Worcester

I had a massive falling out with a close friend a few years ago, but she gave me two amazing pieces of advice that I will always hold dear and they are as follows: stop hanging onto men just because they have the potential to be great, and visit at the thrift store in the Emmanuel Baptist Church basement. One of the best kept secrets in all of Worcester is located at 717 Main Street. The store is closed on Sunday, but you can dig through their collection of treasures from 10 - 5 this Saturday.

Thought Bomb

Electric Haze

26 Millbury Street, Worcester

Matthew Flynn’s monthly show, “Thought Bomb” starts at 8 pm Saturday at Electric Haze. You can die of laughter as comedians perform stories and sing one karaoke song of their choosing with this month’s backup band, “PowerSlut”. I’m going to put my reservations regarding the name “PowerSlut” aside and see what this faux Moth podcast is all about. I like to be within walking distance to Cafe Neo whenever I go out anyway, so it’s a win either way.

Lazy Sunday

That’s Entertainment

224 Park Avenue, Worcester

I’m not into comic books or video games, but I do love wrestling, and That’s Entertainment on 244 Park Ave always has awesome WWE DVDs at an affordable price. I plan on going in Sunday morning, picking out a documentary on any number of my favorite wrestlers, and returning home to sort through antique postcards and thrift store books while hours worth of wrestling entertainment plays in the background. That’s Entertainment is a great place to visit, and you never know that random piece of memorabilia you’ll come across that will totally make your day.
