- Red Bull Witch Hunt @ Boston Common: Looking to work off all the Halloween candy calories you've already consumed? (Nice job, slick. Those candy bars were for the kids.) Dress like a witch and fly on your
broomstick bike to Boston Common. From there, legions of spirited riders will pedal all the way to Salem for an all-night party. Obviously, there'll be transportation back to the city for all witches and bikes. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. 6:30 p.m.-2 a.m.
Thursday, October 30
- Juliana Hatfield @ Barnes & Noble: Check out this two-for-one special from Juliana "Spin the Bottle" Hatfield: She'll read from her newish memoir, "When I Grow Up," and perform songs from her newish CD, "How to Walk Away," at Boston University's Barnes & Noble Thursday night. Fun fact: Wikipedia tells us that Hatfield was voted "Most Individualistic" when she graduated from Duxbury High School. Very fitting. 7-8:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 1
- Boston Vegetarian Food Festival @ the Reggie Lewis Athletic Center: It's almost time for New Year's resolutions, right? Why not make a pact to eat healthier and greener in 2009? Even the most dedicated carnivores should find something interesting or tasty at the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival on Saturday. There'll be free samples, cooking demonstrations, activities for kids, and plenty of chefs and local farmers on hand to answer questions. Bonus: There's a free parking lot and free street parking. 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
