Summer’s over, and I know it’s time to move on from writing about what I did on the preceding weekend (final summer beach visit, dinner at Upstairs on the Square, wash windows 🙁 ), but that doesn’t mean my enthusiasm for the many things you can easily do in this area is diminished.  And better than my limited activities list is another, which I have written about in the past, but which merits a second post.  Johnny’s Boston Events Insider compiles the most unusual list of area activities and, if you subscribe, emails a list every week (or so).  Here are some highlights from this week’s email.  (Details about each can be found on the Boston Events Insider website.)
