Things To Do This Week In Boston (& Beyond)

Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful April vacation! If you’re looking for things to do this week in Boston and beyond, enjoy this roundup of event ideas for Monday through Friday! Also, in case you missed it our April vacation roundup, I wanted to let you know about two things that are happening on April 28 to benefit the amazing Boston Children’s Hospital (where Violet receives her allergy care!). If you need a haircut, book an appointment April 28th at salon participating in the Boston Children’s Hospital’s HAIRraising cut-a-thon and the salon will donate funds to Boston Children’s Hospital’s amazing Heart Center (consider James Joseph Salon in Boston, where I recently got a cut)! And if you love yoga, register to participate in (or donate to) Yoga Reaches Out, which will benefit Boston Children’s Hospital’s Wellness Program.
