Quick Hits Boston: This Week’s Haute Happenings

There is still time to get out and about on the town. Here’s a look at some haute happenings the next few days in Boston.

If you are a sports fan (who isn’t here in Boston?) looking for something fun to do this weekend, former New England Patriot and three-time Super Bowl Champion, Matt Light will be hosting his fourth annual comedy fundraiser on Saturday night (April Fools’ Day). The event is being held at Showcase Live near Gillette Stadium to benefit his nonprofit, The Light Foundation. Light will co-host Fools’ Night Out with comedian Lenny Clarke (Light’s former teammates, some of this year’s Super Bowl Champions and local celebrities will all be in attendance).

We were happy to hear honeygrow, the popular stir-fry and salad restaurant concept from Philadelphia, recently signed its first lease in Boston. The restaurant is slated to open in August near Fenway at 1282 Boylston Street. Look for custom-made noodles prepared freshly by ramen chefs, house-made dressings and sauces, and antibiotic and hormone-free proteins.

Also on Saturday, G2O Spa + Salon on Newbury Street is celebrating in style with the arrival of haircare line Pureology to its selection of products. The daylong celebration will feature demonstrations from a Pureology Pure Artist, giveaways including Red Sox tickets, a restaurant gift certificate and a pink bicycle. G2O will be the first salon in Boston to exclusively carry the entire color care product line.
