January 27-February 2

We’re back! I hope you’ve found some of the extraordinary fun (and activism!) that’s been popping up around town and region in the last few weeks. From house concerts to public markets (and marches!) to poetry readings, January has had so many opportunities to engage and create and listen. This Thursday, Jan 26, Claudia Rankine is in town and Gina Costa’s Ways of Seeing opens. I hope something caught your ear (and heart!) or tummy, as DTSB’s  Restaurant Week, launched Monday, January 23.
