GREEN MON­STER IN PAR­ADISE: Lo­cal Par­rot­heads, re­joice. Jimmy Buf­fett and the Coral Reefer Band, along with spe­cial guests Huey Lewis and The News, have just an­nounced that they're com­ing to Bos­ton. This sum­mer, the whole crew will be per­form­ing at Fen­way Park for one night only — Aug. 9, to be pre­cise — as part of Buf­fett's “Son of a Song of a Sailor” Tour. Tick­ets to Mar­gar­i­taville will be up for grabs be­gin­ning at 10 a.m. on Fri­day, Feb. 23. You can buy them through red­sox.com/jim­my­buf­fett. Be warned, how­ever: There's an eight-ticket limit per cus­tomer. So choose your crew wisely.

JUST US GIRLS: Burling­ton's own Amy Poehler showed that even though her “Parks and Recreation” days are be­hind her, she and her for­mer co-stars are keeping the spirit of Galen­tine's Day alive. The “SNL” alum snapped a selfie with Kathryn Hahn, Rashida Jones and Aubrey Plaza dur­ing their real-life cel­e­bra­tion of the an­nual hol­i­day, which their for­mer show fa­mously in­vented. Poehler, as her “Parks and Recreation” char­ac­ter Les­lie Knope, ex­plained the pur­pose of the fe­male-only hol­i­day dur­ing the se­ries' sec­ond sea­son: “Ev­ery Fe­bru­ary 13th, my lady friends and I leave our hus­bands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, break­fast-style. Ladies cel­e­brat­ing ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, mi­nus the angst. Plus frit­tatas.”

BOS­TON’S LIT: Check out the Bos­ton sky­line this evening, and it'll have you see­ing blue. Come sun­set, close to 35 land­marks through­out the Hub — from City Hall and the Zakim Bridge to the Rose Kennedy Green­way and the Pru — will be il­lu­mi­nated in the cool hue to show their sup­port for Bos­ton Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal. The lu­mi­nous stunt is part of a wider cam­paign to raise funds for the hospi­tal and to show pa­tients they have rays of hope and light through­out our city.
