3 Pizza Places to go to this Weekend

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sat, Oct 17, 2015

1. A4 | Somerville and Cambridge

What you're getting: The Secret Pizza and the clam and bacon

"Since A4 made its K2 (Kendall Square) debut in 2011, it's been on countless top-pizzas lists both in Boston and across the country. Good PR team, sure. Better pizza makers, absolutely. Maybe it’s their pillowy, yet charred, crust made from a 12-year-old sourdough starter, or maybe it's their handcrafted cheeses that never seem greasy -- whatever it is, A4 has found a winning formula"

2. Emma’s Pizza | Kendall Square

What you're getting: The Kendall and The Middle East

"Thin, crispy, cracker crust -- that’s all we need to say about Emma’s Pizza. But we won't stop there. No, this iconic spot has been around since 1962, moving from Revere and West Cambridge before settling in Kendall Square. It's cozy, and there can be a wait, but it's worth it -- grab a glass of red wine, take a walk around the block, or just study the menu and decide if you're gonna mix-and-match The Kendall (roasted red peppers and caramelized onions) with the People's Republic (crispy smoked bacon and scallions)."

3. Ernesto’s Pizzeria | North End, Somerville

What you’re getting: Chicken ranch

"A perennial contender for best pizza in Boston's North End, this tiny hole-in-the-wall is tucked away on Salem St (although it's now also available at Assembly Row in Somerville) and plates ginormous slices -- like each slice is a quarter of an 18in pie. Locals rave about the authentic feel, chewy crust, and traditional toppings."

solar system pop up park"Today from 12-8pm, our Solar System is coming to Somerville! Bursting out over the entire span of Perry Park (355 Washington street) in massive interactive art-forms, all ages will be awed by a massive 30 foot sun, enjoy exploring the Earth and our sibling rocky planets, be able to walk inside of the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn, be dazzled by the ice giants Uranus and Neptune, and learn all about the dwarf planets that zing around the outer orbit.

Lose yourself in the amazing interactive exhibits inside of the International Space Station Maze or hop on a satellite-scooter and zip around the park to visit a giant meteorite! With dozens of creative and educational exhibits as well as the presence of great local organizations such as Knucklebones, Beautiful Stuff Project, Parts and Crafts, and the Somerville Public Library there will be more than enough fun-fueled learning and space for everyone! The event is free!

With support from the Neighborhood Children’s Foundation, the Somerville Art’s Council, and backers of the crowd-funding campaign, local artists have built these amazing structures, local students have helped with the programming, and now all we need is you to join in on the fun!

From 12-5pm teachers, high school students, and community members will educate you and your kids on the wild true facts about our solar system. If your kid is a space expert, we would be glad to have them join the crew for a day. Our event is an opportunity for learners and educators of all ages to share their knowledge and curiosity.

From 6-8 the event will be slightly adapted to entertain grown ups and young adults with music, socializing, and being wowed at the creations of these local artists.

INSTALLATIONS INCLUDE:

- A gigantic sun over 20 feet wide!

- All the rocky planets in large colorful scale, complete with cool factoids about their unique and strange properties.
