This Weekend Picks!

FRIDAY 14TH -  MFA/David Eure Ensemble
Summer Fridays
The Museum of Fine Arts' First Fridays make the move from monthly to weekly and indoor to outdoor becoming Summer Fridays for the season. Socialize under the stars - with old friends or new acquaintances - over a glass of wine or a cocktail in the Calderwood Courtyard from 5:30-9:30pm. With a fully stocked cash bar and a whole summer's worth of musical entertainment lined up, Summer Fridays are the perfect spot to start your weekend. Once you've worked up an appetite, sneak away from the mixing and mingling for dinner at Bravo where chef Jacqueline Kelly is serving her summer menu. Admission to Summer Fridays is free with Museum admission, so check the schedule below to see what's on the musical agenda and head down Huntington Avenue for a little end-of-the-workweek fun.
