Our “Weekender” list is one of BU Today’s most-read stories each week. But the continuing coronavirus pandemic has forced Boston’s stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues to close, and students to hunker down on campus or back home. With that in mind, we’ve retooled our weekly “Weekender.” Until the coronavirus quarantine ends, we’ll offer a list of fun things to watch, read, and create (links to recipes included) from wherever you are. Have suggestions? Send an email to BU Today writer Amy Laskowski (firstname.lastname@example.org) for future editions.
