Haute Weekend Roundup in Boston 2017

With temperatures soaring this weekend here in Boston, it was the perfect excuse to get out and about on town. Here’s a look back at some of the weekend’s hautest events.

The Warehouse at Black Falcon Cruise Terminal was the perfect setting for Camp Harbor View‘s 10th annual Beach Ball Saturday night where guests were treated to an hour-long musical performance by Harry Connick, Jr. The event was co-chaired by the camp’s founder Jack Connors, Jr.; Andrew Dreyfus, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts; John Fish, Suffolk Construction and James Judge, Eversource Energy. Boston’s most stylish gathered here to raise money for the camp, which offers 900 young adults from Boston’s at-risk neighborhoods two four-week summer camp sessions on Long Island in the Boston Harbor along with programs available to the youth and their families throughout the year.

Wicked is now in town playing at the Boston Opera House through July 23. The musical performance tells the classic tale of The Wizard of Oz with the untold stories of Oz’s most famous characters – the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

Nothing says summer in Boston better than dining al fresco and watching a movie by moonlight. Just ask the folks over at the Boston Harbor Hotel where they take full advantage of the summer weather with live waterfront entertainment. Friday night kicked off the Movies by Moonlight series with a feature of On Golden Pond. While you have to wait until Fridays for the outdoor movie showings (upcoming flicks include Moonstruck, Notting Hill and The Notebook), the 19th annual Summer in the City Entertainment Series features live music on Tuesday (pop/soul), Wednesday (Rat Pack) and Thursday nights (blues barge).

On Saturday, Boston hosted its 47th annual Boston Pride Parade and Festival. The parade route started in Back Bay on Boylston Street and wrapped up on Cambridge Street at City Hall Plaza.
The 38th annual Boston Dragon Boat Festival was also held this weekend on the banks of the Charles River in Boston and Cambridge. The oldest festival of its kind in North America is the largest Asian-American cultural event in New England with more than 20,000 participants and spectators each year.
On Saturday, Bron Volney, fitness expert and founder of BronCore Fitness, hosted a BronCore “Crunch & Lunch” outdoor bootcamp class that featured rounds of high-intensity interval training with short bouts of high intensity cardio designed to build lean muscle and burn calories.

Following the hour-long class, participants enjoyed cocktails on Sterling’s outdoor patio along with their regularly featured menu.

Sundays are all about brunching and Copper House Tavern has just what we are looking for. Grab a seat on the outdoor patio and pair up a Sriracha Bloody Mary or Island Breeze with a massive order of ranchero nachos (even the half size is enormous) or crispy steak and egg cheese rolls. We recommend the turkey BLT and turkey tips for lunch entrees, and if you prefer a breakfast dish, try and order of golden French toast dusted with confectioner’s sugar or the pulled pork breakfast skillet.
