Don't let the rain keep you from enjoying your summer. There are plenty of ways to have rainy day fun in Boston. Here are three ideas, thanks to Boston.com:
1. Legoland Discovery Center | Somerville
"Catch a 4D movie at Legoland Discovery Center Boston in Somerville. After that, play on two rides, tour a miniland of Boston’s iconic buildings, and, of course, build things with Legos."
2. Museum of Science | West End
"Mingle with beautiful butterflies at the Museum of Science Butterfly Garden. One just might land on you."
3. Coolidge Corner Theatre | Brookline
"Catch a movie here. This historic theatre has been entertaining New Englanders since 1933"
The warm weather is here (to stay - fingers crossed)! Enjoy the sunshine at one of these awesome places around Boston:
1. Belly Wine Bar | Kendall Square
"Not only can you now enjoy their whole-animal "Arm + A Leg" or fried-chicken dinners on the canopy'd brick patio, but they've also unveiled a Summertime-fun, tiki-styled daiquiri stand serving Plantation rums on Wednesday and Thursday nights."
2. Society On High | Financial District
"The latest venture from the chef/owner behind Sorriso and the Leather District's Les Zygomates, Society on High's a 110-seat, breakfast-thru-dinner FiDi bistro rocking local fare, late-night libations, and a huge, soon-to-open, palm tree-laden patio billed as a little bit of "Miami right here in downtown Boston"."
3. Barcelona Wine Bar | Brookline
"Pretend you're dining on Las Ramblas and not on Beacon St (not that there's anything wrong with Beacon St) as you take down tasty tapas and sangria on what's billed as Brookline's biggest patio."
4. Rooftop at the Revere | Theatre District
"Billed as an "urban oasis and chic lounge" on the Revere Hotel's seventh-floor pool deck, this much-needed rooftop space boasts scenic city views, rentable cabanas, and a nine-seat bar, not to mention imposing flower pots and a small-bites menu complete with lobster roll sliders."
5. The Sinclair | Harvard Square
"Nestled atop a sun-soaked roofdeck that's overlooked by jealous desk jockeys trapped in their offices, this outdoor oasis tucked away from the masses offers sunset views and shaded high tops, not to mention tasty 'tails like the Kentucky Luau (bourbon, pineapple-cinnamon gomme, Peychaud's/Angostura bitters) to be enjoyed before the big Gold Panda show."
Treat your Mom to brunch at one of these great spots, provided by Boston.com:
In light of Cinco de Mayo, head over to one of these great places for awesome Mexican fare...
1. Olecito | Inman Square
"Olecito is Inman Square’s hidden gem, literally a hole-in-the-wall across the street from sister restaurant, Olé. Locals say it's where you get the most bang for your buck. Expect to get amazing chips, tacos, tortas, and burritos swiftly in a familiarly decorated bright yellow, four-table space."
2. The Painted Burro | Somerville
"In the heart of Davis Square, The Painted Burro offers the crowd an energetic vibe (no doubt due to its proximity to Tufts) combined with an upscale, modern feel. In time for warmer weather, The Painted Burro has already started opening its giant storefront windows, turning indoor dining into one big outdoor fiesta flush with innovative creations such as its crab cake and calamari taco."
3. Lone Star Taco Bar | Allston
"Lone Star boasts as much acclaim with its Mexican street food as it does its mezcal and tequila-based cocktails. The cooly lit taco bar shares owners (and a kitchen) with the much lauded Deep Ellum, and offers up smoked chilies, chorizos, and masa corn tortillas -- all made in-house."
4. El Centro | South End
"Among the nation's top taquerias, chef and owner Allan Rodriguez opened El Centro in Boston’s South End to give the city a Mexican, Sonora-style restaurant with fresh ideas, and creative menu options. Menu highlights include a classic charcoal-grilled Arrachera A La Tampiquena steak with green sauce and the Campechanos tacos, combining carne asada and al pastor. In 2013, the restaurant opened its second location in Brookline with furnishings and art handpicked by the owner, and brought over from his native Mexico."
5. Dorado Tacos | Brookline
"Although considered to be Mexican fast food, Dorado Tacos does not skimp on the quality. The restaurant’s cemitas are set up on toasted sesame seed egg buns with avocado, Oaxaca cheese, black beans, chipotle, and cilantro. The restaurant is value friendly and the perfect spot to grab a quick bite if Mexican is what you’re craving."
