Local Weekend Going-Out Guide for Cambridge and Somerville


The third installment of this blog’s Going-Out Guide features a third round of this year’s winter wonderland. The latest update from the National Weather Service is that Saturday into Saturday evening, low pressure out of the Great Lakes will sweep southeast of New England during which time light to moderate snow will spread across the region.

Saturday night into Sunday, low pressure will strengthen quickly into the Gulf of Maine the proximity of which will present the potential for blizzard conditions across east/southeast-coastal New England with snowfall amounts in excess of a foot along with strong to damaging winds possibly up to hurricane force. Combination of increasing winds and the Sunday morning high tide presents the threat of minor to moderate coastal flooding.

Possible hazards associated with this storm include; poor travel conditions, power outages, strong wind gusts, extreme cold, minor to moderate coastal flooding, and beach erosion.

I’ll keep you updated throughout the weekend on my Twitter and Facebook pages about any changes to the weather forecast.

Tonight, you can experience a special screening of Casablanca at the legendary Brattle Theatre or listen to the unique and original voice of Jeffrey Gaines at Passim. Click here to buy tickets for Casablanca and here to learn more about Jeffrey Gaines’ show.


On Saturday, you can to step into a film time machine and enjoy Seven Chances with Jeff Rapsis on the Piano at the Aeronaut Brewing Company in Somerville. Please click here for more info.

Finally, tomorrow marks the beginning of the twentieth annual Bugs Bunny Festival at the Brattle. This year’s festival is dedicated to the memory of Brian Murphy, who passed away last week. Brian was a good friend and a dedicated public servant. Speaking with his family and friends over the last week, it is Brian’s sense of humor that lasts in people’s memories. Dedicating this year’s bugs bunny festival in his honor is another fitting testament to how Brian impacted our lives. His presence and leadership will be missed.
