There is good news and there is bad news about this weekend.
The bad news is this is pretty much the official end to summer is upon us with Labor Day fast approaching. The good news is that you get free parking on Monday and an extra day off. After all, the whole idea behind the national holiday was to honor the social and economic achievements of American workers.
We have got you covered with what is open and what is closed on Labor Day, and do not forget – with the Monday holiday, trash and recycling will be delayed a day.
But lest you get sad about the end of summer here are a few things to do with the last weekend and celebrate all the workers that came before you:
Things to do:
- See “Beauty and the Beast” at the Puppet Showcase Theater Sept. 2 through Sept. 4. The show begins at 1 and 3:00 p.m. on Sept. 2 and Sept. 3, and at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sept. 4.
- Watch “Jaws” on the big screen at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Sept. 4. Unless, of course, you want to ever go back to the Cape again and swim. The classic horror film will show at 7:00 p.m.
- Drive over to Arlington’s Regal Theatre to see cats doing acrobatics and playing in a band. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Seriously. It’s a thing. It’s worth the drive. The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats are a troupe of real performing house cats. And if the cats bomb, at least a portion of the proceeds always benefits the group’s mobile foster and rescue efforts.
Things to be aware of:
