The weekend ahead is looking straight up BALMY. Weather in the 40s means we can all toss our scarves and hats to the wind and leave the house again. Good thing this weekend is also full of events, including, but not limited to this year’s Superbowl (if we close our eyes, we can almost still picture purple on that field). Ready your engines, Cantonites. It is the weekend!

If you don’t plan on camping out at your favorite rowhome and busting out the homemade buffalo chicken dip for the big game (which is always a good idea), Frederick’s on Fleet is hosting a Superbowl party that’s likely to be less packed than some of the bars on the square. They’ll also have an all you can eat buffet for $15, discounted burgers, and amazing drink deals with three TVs ready for you to scream at.
