Eat, shop, go
March is here, and that means the days are slowly getting longer and the temperatures getting warmer. It won’t feel quite like springtime this weekend, but get inspired anyway and start looking for your next job or internship opportunity at the University-wide Career Fair. If you would rather relax, grab some takeout in Fenway, and we suggest supporting the women’s basketball team in the Patriot League playoffs, revamping your wardrobe for the spring, or checking out a newly reopened museum.
If you want to begin March in a flavorful yet healthy way, Honeygrow in Fenway is the place to go. The chain started in Philadelphia in 2012, and it now has 25 locations on the East Coast. You can select from the menu or create your own salad (such as kale chicken caesar or Greek) or stir-fry (like red coconut curry or sesame garlic). The restaurant also has desserts, called Honeybars, consisting of fruit and a garnish and topped with one of the varieties of signature honey. There are options for pickup and delivery: you can order pickup through the website or delivery through an app like GrubHub, DoorDash, or Uber Eats.
Honeygrow, 1282 Boylston St., Boston, in the Fenway area, is open daily from 10:30 am to 10 pm.
It is the first weekend in March, so it might be time to update your wardrobe for spring. Luckily, Uniqlo on Newbury Street can help. The Japanese retailer has affordable clothes for every occasion and weather. You will find high-quality pieces for less than $30, and T-shirts are almost all under $20. Jackets and pants climb a little higher in price, but Uniqlo clothing will last you a long time.
Uniqlo, 341 Newbury St., Boston, is open Monday to Saturday, 11 am to 8 pm, and Sunday, noon to 7 pm.
Museum of African American History
Boston’s museums have just reopened, and one worth checking out is the Museum of African American History in Beacon Hill, which is open at reduced capacity to comply with COVID-19 guidelines, with all ticketing done online. Visitors must register for a time slot 24 hours before visiting. Named one the 15 unmissable Black history museums across America by Fodor’s Travel, its exhibitions include a history of jazz in Boston and displays of some of the 3,000 artifacts in its collection, such as art by Boston-area Black artists and documents from the slave trade.
The Museum of African American History, 46 Joy St., Boston, is open Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 4 pm. Reserve your tickets here.
