Johnny’s List of Quirky Boston Events: 02/17/06
02/17/06 by Johnny Monsarrat
|This week, check out
Carnaval Brasileiro, Feb 18th, in Boston at the Castle at Park Plaza. 800-965-4827. It’s the biggest Mardi Gras event I could find this week, although there’s one next week at the Big Easy. More on that later.
|Also see the
New England Championships – Fencing, Feb 19th in Wellesley, MA. I went one year and it was worth seeing.
|Here are some wild ideas as we continue to wait for Spring.
Take a helicopter ride with Boston Helicopter. $200 for 30 minutes. Or Ryan Rotors in Plymouth, www.ryanrotors.com, $75 for 15 min, $125 for 30 min.
|Also, there’s more than just Frog Pond at Boston Common for ice skating. Try the
Charles Hotel @ Harvard Square. Rentals $5, 2-8pm M-F, 10am-8pm SS. Or Larz Anderson Rink @ Brookline, www.townofbrooklinemass.com/recreation/L
I am working on a new, Web interactive version of Johnny’s New England Activities, and also I am seeking a business partner such as the Zagat’s Guide or Weekly Dig to help me hook into advertiser’s and such. Any advice, please leave a LJ comment or email me. 🙂
