Antidotes for Super Bowl Overload
Five things to do in Boston this weekend.
- It’s African-American History Month and it’s one of the warmest winters on record. Take part in both with an African-American Patriots walking tour. The tour starts at the Freedom Trail Visitor Information Center Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. Tickets are $6–12.
- This is your last weekend to see the Museum of Fine Art’s “Degas and the Nude.” The exhibit, co-produced by the MFA and Museé d’Orsay in Paris, showcases pieces painted throughout the artist’s career.
- Yes, most of this week’s list is about getting a little culture in before Sunday’s football free-for-all, but who can pass up a good burrito contest? Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake hosts some of Boston’s hottest chefs to compete in “Burrito Bowl II.” The contest starts Saturday at 1 p.m.. Tickets are $15.
- NPR’s classical music showcase, “From The Top,” is staging a live show Saturday. Come see some of classical music’s brightest young stars at Jordan Hall. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.. Tickets are $25.
- Need more classical music to counteract the Madonna-led halftime show? Head over to Symphony Hall Saturday at 8 p.m. and watch Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit lead the BSO in “Strauss, Dutilleux and Debussy.” Tickets for the French-themed program start at $32.
