Photos: Boston Parties on Wheels to Celebrate Donna Summer
Photos
Friday night, Boston showed its groovy side, putting on a free roller disco party on City Hall Plaza. Thousands showed up to show their tastiest roller rink moves, many in retro garb, moving to the sounds of Dorchester's DJ Kon. The event was created with the help of Together Boston in order to honor the late great Donna Summer, who passed away last year. Some of Summer's greatest hits were played, and disco culture was revived in Boston for one hot summer night. More

Readings at the Bar, Shakespeare on the Common, and More Events This Week
Boston events
Another week, another set of sweet options for stuff to do in Boston: Drink for a good cause, learn how to make drinks for a good cause (drinking delicious drinks), or see some free Shakespeare on the Common, probably without the drinks because those plays are hard enough to understand when you’re sober.

Photos: 2014 Revere Beach National Sand Sculpting Festival
Boston events
This past weekend, artists and sand-builders of all kinds took to Revere Beach to show off their sand craftsmanship for the 11th annual Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival. We were there with camera in hand (and sunblock, of course), to give you a glimpse at some of the finest sand creations of the weekend and the artists behind them. No offense to your dribble castles, but these structures were on an entirely new level. Check it out: More

Five DIY Shandies to Try at This Weekend’s Drink Craft Beer Summerfest
Boston events

Have you been converted by the Narragansett Del’s Shandy cult yet?

Say what you will about shandies. Even if you find some of them too sweet or cloying for your tastes, you can’t deny that Harpoon’s Big Squeeze, Steigl’s Radler (#TeamRadler) and that ever-ubiquitous green and yellow tallboy can (that’s been flying off shelves since mid-May) have caught on big time this summer.

Roller Skating, Sand Sculpting and More Weekend Events
Boston events
This weekend’s events are going to require your full footwear arsenal: Roller skates for the disco, flip flops for the beach, Chucks for indie music festivals, and whatever you’d wear riding a bike in 1883 for the 1883 bike ride. Leather wingtips, maybe? Sounds like blister city. Probably just go with sneakers.

Five Years of Starlab Fest, A Chat With Organizer Matt Price
Music
This year marks the fifth annual Starlab Fest in Somerville, and if you haven’t been yet, you’re doing things wrong. The mini festival put on by Matt Price and Starlab Recording Company is one of the best days of music in Boston, and probably, by default, the best in Somerville. The event will take place this Saturday, July 19, bringing local music, film, and comedy to two different stages. More

This Week in Boston: Bastille Day Bashes, Playhouse in the Park and More
Boston events
It’s the time of year when you need a really good reason to step away from the comfort of air conditioning or the box fan that’s aimed directly at your face. This week you can party with your favorite street performer, attend a benefit or two for a good cause, or see an art exhibition that will remind you winter is coming and you better do fun stuff outdoors while you still can.

Costume Parties for Pups, Ice Cream and Beer Fests, and More Weekend Events
Boston events
The nice thing about summer is you can take normal indoor activities and move them outside and they get way better. Like theatre and movie screenings, ice cream and beer festivals, even just sitting around doing nothing is better if you’re on a park bench, because at least the pigeons will be your friends, or at least they won’t judge you for your career and lifestyle choices, and if they do, screw them, the neverending bread party stops right here, pal.
