Pinching pennies? Chic but cheap? We understand. Here are three free events this week for your going out pleasure.
Wednesday, May 7
- 'Storm Over Everest' Screening @ WGBH: Whether you're an avid climber or an armchair travel enthusiast (hello, National Geographic Channel), this breathtaking, harrowing film by mountaineer and filmmaker David Breashears should interest you. He survived the greatest tragedy on Mt. Everest, when a storm trapped three climbing teams on the beastly peak in 1996. Be sure to RSVP online. 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, May 8
- Yoga on the Square @ Copley Square Park: Planning outdoor yoga in New England in May is a risky proposition — it may be hard to anchor mats in gale force winds — fortunately, the forecast is calling for sun and temps in the low-70s. If you need a mini wellness break, head to Copley Square for this complimentary lunchtime yoga class, hosted by Glaceau Smartwater. Bonus: The first 100 people to show up will get a free mat. Namaste. 12-1 p.m. or 1-2 p.m.
Friday, May 9
- Seed in the City @ Good Life: Hey, Soul Man (or Woman): Need a little smooth to start your weekend? Check out the soulful sounds of DJ Cruzz, Bradford James, and Deknology at this downtown hotspot. 9 p.m.
[Wonder if Smartwater spokesman Tom Brady will tote his yoga mat to Copley Thursday? We can only hope.]
