Date night pick:
Think outside the box when it comes to a Friday night date.  Head to the Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf and enjoy a classic crowd-pleaser at their outdoor theater.  Each summer the harborside terrace is transformed into an outdoor cinema under the stars from June through August.  This week the featured movie is the classic John Wayne – The Quiet Man. The movie begins at sunset and is free and open to the public.  We recommend getting their a little early to find a spot.
