It’s Valentine’s Day weekend. Take in a show at the Steeple Coffeehouse with a discounted dinner beforehand. Stroll through the newly-reopened exhibit space at the Arts Center. Learn something at the Southborough Historical Museum. Or sample some chocolate at Panzano Market. Here are the details.
The Kennedys at the Steeple Coffeehouse
The Kennedys are a husband and wife folk-rock team who released their tenth album, Better Dreams, last year. The Montreal Gazette raved, “[The Kennedys] have created a cohesive, often infectious and sometimes poignant song cycle inspired by dreams: the dreams that come in the night, and dreams of a better world.” The duo will play the Steeple Coffeehouse on Saturday with opening act Marc Douglas Berardo.
The show starts at 7:30 pm. Steeple Coffeehouse is located in Pilgrim Church. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Discounts are available for students and seniors. See the Steeple Coffeehouse website for more details.
As always, you can enjoy a 20% discount on dinner at Tomasso Trattoria on either Friday or Saturday night by mentioning Steeple Coffeehouse when you make your reservations. Be sure to bring along a copy of your ticket receipt. Valentine’s dinner at Tomasso is a fixed price four course dinner for $45 or $65 with wine pairings.
