In addition to the items that Kyle has posted on the Greater Hartford Real Estate Blog, here are a few more things happening this weekend you might want to know about:
This weekend is your last chance to see Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps at Hartford Stage, as it closes on May 1st. This is one of the most impressive plays I have seen at Hartford Stage. The adaptation by Patrick Barlow is dubbed a “comedy thriller,” but honestly, it’s primarily comedy. It’s creative, unpretentious, and worth checking out.
While they won’t be opening their doors at the crack of dawn, La Paloma Sabanera will have The Royal Wedding on their television. Of course, there will be tea to sip while watching the historical event. I realize Friday is not really the weekend, but I do know some people who have taken the day off from work specifically to watch this wedding on tv, so I guess it’s the weekend for them.
At ten, volunteers will meet in Baby Pope Park (Pope Park North) to do some Spring cleaning. From there, they will tackle Russ Street and Babcock Street. Another clean up beginning at the Billings Forge compound is supposed to meander over toward Babcock. Both will then take on Park Street, Lawrence Street, and Putnam Street. These events usually take three or four hours.
Wear comfortable shoes. Sunday is designated for walking.
The Walk Against Hunger check-in begins at 1pm at 690 Asylum Avenue. The actual walking begins at 2. It’s a very short, three mile walk through Asylum Hill and the West End. This is a fundraising event.
If your feet haven’t blistered over at that point, you can do some more traveling about the city with the SlutWalk from 3-5pm. This route has changed to a more manageable one, going from the Wadsworth Atheneum to the State Capitol. This is an awareness-raising event.
You can also be perfectly sedentary and take a stab at Connecticut Museum Quest’s new feature, the Sunday Stumper.
