3 Boston Activities To Keep You Warm This Winter

January 27, 2013 at 11:49 am Leave a comment

The winter recently took a turn for the worse in Boston, going from cold breezes to frigid wind chills and temperatures so low all I want to do is sit inside. Luckily, I’ve had the chance to do fun Boston activities that helped force me off the couch during this cold spell. I recommend braving the chill to add these activities to your to-do list.

1) Truffle Making Class: Boston Chocolate School

I attended a truffle making class with Boston Chocolate School and it was mouth watering. The executive pastry chef led the class with fun chocolate facts and demonstrations. Even better? He appeared on an episode of the Food Network’s “Sweet Genius” and won it! I had a blast asking him questions about the show. At the end of the class, we got to roll, dip, drizzle and top our very own truffles. We boxed them up, took them home and had truffles to eat for days!

2) Make Meaning: Cake decorating class

If you’ve still got a little kid-like imagination in you, Make Meaning is the place to go. Make Meaning is a creative spot for kids and adults to do various activities like cake decorating, candle making, ceramics, jewelry making and more. I of course tried the cake making, and had a ball. They give you a mini cake with fondant, and let you go off decorating. Craft the cake to your heart’s content with fondant, edible spray paint, cut outs and toppers to add your own flare. A perfect Saturday outing!

3) Groupon, Groupon, Groupon

Everyone knows Groupon, but I think it’s especially handy during the winter time. I’ve gone to 4-5 restaurants in Boston using Groupons and have loved all of them. Boston is a small city, but there are hundreds of restaurants and it’s easy to skip over them. Try out Groupon for restaurants you wouldn’t have thought of, in neighborhoods you don’t know much about–this combo makes exploring so much fun! Tip: I recommend Elephant Walk in Brookline or Waltham!
