Hope you enjoyed your taste of a fall nor’easter last weekend — good on Boston for trying to get us prepped and ready for the weather to come. While this weekend’s weather doesn’t look particularly promising, look on the bright side: it’s not snowing yet. Whether you’re still recovering from last weekend’s costumed adventures or you’re chomping at the bit and ready to go, there’s something fun to explore in Boston this weekend.


Illuminus Light Festival

Illuminus is a nighttime art festival which includes installations, video projects, and performances all centered around the manipulation of light. Head to Downtown Crossing between 5 and 11 p.m. to check out these creative projects. Get some quality instagram pics, impress your friends with your ~artistic~ sophistication, and enjoy Boston at night! P.S.: if you’re busy on Friday, you have a second chance to check this out on Saturday evening!


MFA Screening of “Christopher Robin”

Looking to infuse a little bit of Disney into your Saturday? Honestly, who’s not! The Museum of Fine Art is currently running a special Winnie the Pooh exhibit, and to accompany this exhibit, it is hosting a free screening of Disney’s “Christopher Robin” this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. While entry to the MFA is free with our student IDs, you do need to grab tickets for both the exhibit and the movie.


House of Blues Pop-Up Arcade Bar

The Boston House of Blues is teaming up with Rhode Island’s Shelter Arcade Bar by hosting a Pop-Up Arcade in its restaurant. Bring some quarters and check out vintage arcade cabs and pinball machines which are sure to get the notalgia flowing. The arcade is open from 5 p.m. to close, but keep in mind that the venue goes 21+ at 9 p.m.

We hate to burst your bubble, but Harvard isn’t the entire world. Go forth and burst the Harvard bubble with these Boston events!
