Free Is Fun!

Welcome to Free Stuff Fridays, where we will bring you at least a few events that you can attend for free, have fun at and maybe even learn something from. Most of these are family friendly and you just can't beat the price!

Want to tell your water cooler gang on Monday that you spent the weekend hanging out with Shaquille O'Neal? Well, you can. He'll be saying a few words and signing copies of his autobiography: SHAQ UNCUT on Saturday at Harvard Book Store.
Where: 1256 Mass. Ave Cambridge (Harvard Square Red Line T Stop)
When: Saturday November 19, 2011
Time: 1:00 PM

Faneuil Hall Tree Lighting
Sports celebrities and a singalong will be featured as the holiday tree at Faneuil Hall is lit just after sunset. Hot chocolate anyone?
When: Saturday November 19, 2011

Want to learn more about global warming after your leisurely brunch? We got that. The WATER IS RISING lecture at the Museum Of Science will explore cultures that face displacement and, even worse, extinction due to the effects of global warming. Intelligent question to ask: How does global warming affect our weather?
Where: Museum Of Science (Science Park Green Line T Stop)
When: Sunday November 20, 2011
Time: 3:0PM

Take just one of those beautiful holiday cards you are mailing to friends and send it to someone who may have nearly given their life to defend your right to do and say what you want, from eating truffles to organizing social protests. Tell them just how much you appreciate them in an often thankless world.

Send your cards to:
A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20307-5001

Cost: 44 cents (and the feeling that you have given a really memorable gift this year). Go ahead and splurge and have the kids send one, too.

Testosterone-fueled frat party jokes aside, the Sausage Fest is a competition of celebrated local Chefs such as William Kovell of Catalyst, Dante DeMagistris of dante, Patricia Yeo of OM and Marc Orfaly of Pigalle to use any ingredients to create the best original sausage. Taste them all and cast your vote!

Where: dante restaurant
40 Edwin H. Land Blvd., Cambridge (Science Park Green Line T Stop)
When: Sunday November 20, 2011
Time: 2:00PM - 5:00 PM
