Local going out guide for Somerville and Cambridge

Somerville and Cambridge are hotspots for various cultural activities, and going forward I’ll be posting a weekly guide to local events. As we return to normalcy after the blizzard, there will be plenty to do in and around Somerville and Cambridge for the rest of week.

Rain and snow showers are forecast for Friday so why not spend an evening at the Armory in Somerville searching for Cleopatra’s crown? The Search for Cleopatra’s Crown is an evening of short movies and animations about history by Mick Cusimano. It’s free and open to the public this Friday from 8pm to 9:30pm at the Center for Arts at the Armory on 191 Highland Avenue.

If you’re musically inclined, an all-star lineup of artists will keep the music and spirit of Pete Seeger alive on Friday evening at the Cambridge Forum in a Sing-Out Tribute to the iconic singer who passed away last year. Tickets are $20 if you buy them in advance and $25 at the door.

Inclement weather is forecast for Saturday as well, but you’ll probably spend most of this day preparing for the big game on Sunday so why not visit the Somerville Winter Farmers’ Market for your Super Bowl Party food? That’s right, the Center for Arts at the Armory in Somerville is hosting a Winter Farmers Market on Saturdays, from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM, December through March. This weekly market offers a variety of locally grown and regionally produced agricultural products, features rotating guest vendors each week, as well as live music and delicious treats in two café areas.

The Somerville Winter Farmers Market accepts SNAP/EBT cards, and doubles SNAP purchases dollar for dollar up to $10 – allowing SNAP recipients double their spending power.
