A Hands-on Saturday in Boston

This Saturday, Urban Mechanic has no less than four events going on from Allston to Dorchester and in between.

Starting the day is a public meeting to review the master plan proposal for Columbia Point, which includes redeveloping the Boston Globe complex and the Bayside Exposition Center. Anyone interested can find out more about the event on the BRA's website.

After a brief introduction to that Urban Mechanic hopes to skip over to Allston Village for their street clean-up for a couple hours. Specific event details can be found here.

By noon-time it's back across Boston to do a Ribbon Cutting Crawl with Uphams Corner Main Streets featuring BBQ, a wine-tasting and an appearance by the Mayor. (NOTE - Urban Mechanic is not to be confused with the Thomas Menino who also uses the moniker.)

Finally, in the late afternoon its over to Jamaica Plain for the 16th Annual Open Studios.

It may sound daunting at first, but the Urban Mechanic can assure folks that it sure beats just cruising the shopping malls. Of course, one doesn't have to do a marathon of events to get a real feel for Boston. Just pick one of teh cool events above or find another of your liking by visiting Boston Main Streets website. There's a great calendar of events and links to every Main Street district in the city!
