Things to Do, Hear, Eat, Learn, and See: Mar 12 – 15

The COVID-19 outbreak is causing a rash of cancellations of large-scale public events – SXSW and Cochella, for example, along with Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade and a slew of smaller gatherings, happenings, shows, parties, installations etc. across the state and the nation.

That said, things ARE STILL HAPPENING this weekend. And generally speaking, unless you are living in a containment area like the one Gov. Andrew Cuomo established in New Rochelle, you are not restricted from going out, though public health experts have said it is wise to avoid crowds if you are immunocompromised or elderly.

So, if you’re looking for something to distract you from the virus news this weekend, if only briefly, consider the following list of events curated by our Mistress of Fun. And remember: Practice good hygiene and wash your hands frequently.
