It’s important to help support local small businesses during all this snow.  Make an effort to do a little shopping this weekend. Put on your boots, take a walk, and spend some money!   Here’s a guide to our local boutiques!

Take the kids or revisit your childhood with a trip to the Pit  on Farragut Road near the Murphy Rink.  Grab a sled (available at Economy Hardware) and hit the hill at this old school favorite sledding spot in South Boston.

Check out all the art and exhibits at the ICA this weekend!  They survived the flooding in the Seaport and are open all weekend!  While you’re in the area, grab a drink or dinner at one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood!

Ice, Ice, Baby! Grab your parka and head to the Envoy Hotel at the Lookout Bar’s six rooftop igloos. The 7-foot-tall, 12-foot-wide weatherproof igloos are heated, of course, and are perfect for sipping cocktails while enjoying those skyline and harbor views. The igloos are available on a first come, first served basis on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 4-10pm through the winter and fleece blankets are available to keep you extra cozy.
