Johnny’s List of Quirky Boston Events: 04/12/07 Extra

Since running a marathon is inherently unhealthy (it killed the first guy who tried it in ancient Greece), you need to load up on carbohydrates beforehand. Thus, the Pre-Race Pasta Dinner for Boston Marathon, Apr 15, Boston Metro, City Hall Plaza, One City Hall Plaza, Boston, MA

Also, Post-Race Dance Party, Apr 17, Boston Metro, The Roxy & Pure, 279 Tremont St, Boston, MA. 7:30pm-1:30am, celebration showing video highlights from the Boston Marathon

The Boston Children’s Museum re-opens April 14 after renovations. I’ve been recently, it’s worth seeing, even without kids, but they don’t seem to be planning any kind of re-opening celebration open to the public.

Finally, I found another Patriots Day Website worth mentioning, There’s a Patriots Ball – Saturday, April 14, lots of historic walks and parades, and even a “Candlelight Remembrance Ceremony at the North Bridge” involving 500 people with flashlights and singing.
