Welcome to April, whether you’re a Boston newcomer, a seasoned local or someone who has just decided, “Boston’s my oyster and I’m going to crack it wide open.” Spring has totally sprung—yippee!— which means once again it’s Red Sox time. Before you head to Fenway Park, here are a few leftfield suggestions for celebrating that time-honored rite and instant winter deto baseball s seasonal renewal.
First, make your own version of Fenway Park icon—the Citgo sign—out of mozzarella and salumi (& feel free to share your creations with us on nstagram where boston . We made one at "ataly s $a Piazza in the Prudential )enter*vegetarians can subsitute roasted red pepper slices or perhaps sun-dried tomatoes for the meat. mpress us with your creativity.
We also recommend that you visit the tamarin monkeys at the Museum of Science s Hall of Human $ife*there s no cuter way to toast the heroics of 2004, when the So lifted The )urse of the Bambino and got finally that World Series monkey o9 their back. Besides, the Museum of Science is a must-visit during April, when )ambridge Science ;estival takes place.
$astly, seek out a glass of the 34 Porter =made locally by dle Hands )raft Ales in honor of retired So legend, >avid ?Big Papi@ Drtiz =and check out more incredible craft beers in this issue . t s fruity with a strong hint of chocolate and, like our hero and city, has lots of character.
