RuPaul called…

So, I’ve been working way too much at my day job – like leaving the office at 9, 10 pm.  Gross.  I am so tired.  Last week, I was talking about it with my friend, Colin…not complaining though because I am far too tired to muster the energy up for that.

He is sitting there, patiently listening to me.  Then, he picks up his phone & says, “RuPaul’s calling.  She says ‘You better work!’. “.  HA!

I love livin’ in the city (free stuff)

Boston is not one of the cheaper cities in which to live but there are plenty of fun & high end things to do for free. That sort of compensates for the high taxes, gas prices, grocery bills, etc., right?

Here’s a list of my favorite free things to do in the city:

Free Music:
River Music Hall
Just fan 92.5 The River on Facebook or sign up for our 9-2-5 Network on our website.  We’re always inviting you to come hear your favorite artists to play

Free Movies
The Kendall
Landmark Cinemas often do free screenings of movies or cable tv shows.  You’ll get notifications if you’re on their mailing list. From time to time, they give out free indie music samplers as well – a lot of the artists are ones you hear on The River.

Free Books
Your local library
It’s free – no strings attached! Books, movies, music…what is not to love?

Free “Culture”  
Museum of Fine Arts
Pay What You Can, Wednesdays after 4p. Also, buying a movie ticket ($9-$11) will allow you to wander through the museum before & after.  For a sophisticated evening, have a glass of wine in the little cafe outside the theatre…

Godiva
Join their rewards club & you get free chocolate at least once a month.  Oh, and that noise – that’s the sound of my bum getting bigger.

Bee’s Knees
This is a market from the owners of M3.  They sample pretty much everything they sell in their store…cookies, chocolate, charcuterie, cheese, wine…so so good.

Free Clothes
Boden, a very hip British company, does unbelievable promotions, i.e. buy 3 things get the 4th free, etc..  A lot of their clothes are made in Europe and they’re very high quality – I’ve had things for years that look brand new.
