What to do in Boston this weekend?

What's fun to do in Boston this weekend? I'm familiar with the city and have done all the usual stuff, but haven't been in a year. What great new restaurants and bakeries have opened? What are the must-see museum exhibitions? Are there are any cool events happening in the next two days -- particularly anything quirky, offbeat, playful?

Donuts! Check out Union Square donuts. (Also in Union Square is the cool new restaurant Bronwyn). The other place to check out donuts right now is from Chef Cmar who's doing a pop-up event at Barbara Lynch's The Butcher Shop. It's called Stacked Donuts and it's happening for the next few weekends starting 9amish until they run out.

And here's a list of some things happening this weekend.

Had a quick peek at your past questions & it seems you have a small child? I think this all-ages show Boston Rock-n-Romp on Sunday at noon might be right up your alley!

Seconding Union Square Donuts. They are SO GOOD.

Hand-pulled Chinese noodles in Chinatown.

(Whoops, never mind, closed weekends)

Mr. Kitty and I got great recommendations for Menton while we were in Boston this fall. We were pretty impressed.

Also - here was my question a few months ago with some great recommendations for restaurants.

We ended up going to Bondir in Cambridge and were very impressed with the food there.

Enjoy your trip!

It might be a little far if you're not driving, but Pop Bumpers Pinball, a new pinball arcade, just opened in Weymouth last weekend. They feature mostly 60's/70's electromechanical games. Looks like extended hours continue this weekend (11am - 7pm, but maybe call first in case they're planning to start regular hours).

It's last minute at this point, but Lea Delaria (Big Boo from Orange is the New Black) is performing tonight at 8 Scullers Jazz Club!
