Most Exciting Spring Happenings Around The AbbyApril 29, 2022 | banksy, boston tea party, city winerygreenway, design week
One of the oldest and most historic locations in the United States is also a top destination — in terms of current, summer happenings. With the temperatures increasing, and school nearly over, it’s time to get out of the apartment and out into the world!
Whether you’re into beverage tastings, or elusive artist showcases, we’ve got you covered. You can even participate in a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party — if that’s what you’re into.
Here are the top three things to do this week around The Abby:
Boston Design Week
Through mid-month, the 9th annual Boston Design Week is transpiring across our city. The 14-day design festival features 60+ in-person, virtual, hybrid, and outdoor events citywide. This year’s theme of “Boston Rethinks Design” puts an emphasis on out-of-the-box thinking in all design-related industries.
For more information, check out a list of happenings here.
City Winery On The Greenway
An open-air wine garden serves bottles from locally-crafted vineyards. Located in Dewey Square, and very close by the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the outdoor sip and social has been a city staple since 2004.
The location is open seasonally from May through October.
Recommended is the Boston Red Blend paired with anything off the Mediterranean-inspired menu.
Note: a portion of tables are first come, first serve, but larger parties of six need reservations.
The Art Of Banksy
The greatest (and most mysterious) artist of his generation, Banksy has brought his murals stateside. The internationally known Brit is on tour for the curated collection ‘The Art Of Banksy’.
All works have been sourced from private collections and features over 100 originals. The largest touring exhibit of authentic Banksy artworks will paint the walls in Harvard Square through the weekend.
