Cultural events make for great dates, not only because they tend to be wallet-friendly, but because if sparks don't fly or things fly south, there are plenty of other attractive things (and people) to look at.
But I digress. This Juneteenth celebration, hosted by Future Boston Alliance and the MFA, looks pretty awesome, handsome accompaniment or not.
So: start by meeting at the MFA (admission is free) and catch a 15-minute "spotlight talk" at 6, 6:30 or 7:15 PM. Flex your creative muscles (ladies love 'em) and sketch a live model in one of the galleries, or drop in for conversation (and flirtation) at Future Boston's meetup at Taste Café. Grab dinner if you're hungry—Bravo Restaurant is open until 8:30 PM—and make your way to Central Square around 10 PM, where DJ Maseo of De La Soul will play at Naga for just $10. Where the night goes from there is up to your own imagination, of course, but it hopefully won't end alone.
Art, food, music, and possibility: the perfect ingredients for a summer night on the town.
