I spent my morning in meetings, the second of which was at the Hawthorne Hotel where we were fed yummy, and might I add warm, cookies. It's hard to complain about a long agenda with a snickerdoodle in your hand.
That said, everywhere I've turned today I have been given programming, events, and festivals. I just can't keep all of this information to myself, so here are a few bullet points - and links for more information.
First off, this weekend the Peabody Essex Museum is hosting Sensational India, a weekend celebration of the art, music, dance, and cuisine of India. Acitivites are for all ages, but many require reservations, so check the pem.org for more information.
Sensational India in Salem! How cool is that? We love the PEM.
Next in queue, we will celebrate Spring Restaurant Week next week, April 11 - 15. Make reservations at one of the participating restaurants and enjoy a prix fixed, three course dinner for $25. What a great date night!
Restaurant Week is the excuse you've been waiting for to try a new restaurant, or get back to an old favorite.
After you've filled up on fine cuisine, get in shape during Health & Wellness Week. Organized by Salem Main Streets, this is what we hope will be an annual celebration of all things healthy in Salem. Plan your work out, your Yoga, your spa service, and be entered into a raffle for fantastic prizes. Health and Wellness Week will run April 12-17.
The Salem Farmers' Market doesn't open until June 17, but you can get in the mood for locally grown foods at Sixty2 on Wharf this Sunday, April 12. Sixty2 is hosting the Cultivating Community Fundraiser for the Salem Farmers' Market. There will be live jazz music, a cash bar, a silent auction, and passed hors d'oeuvres. Tickets are $20 and they are going fast. They are available at Sixty2 on Wharf and the Salem Chamber of Commerce.
There's more, too. Visit the calendar on Salem.org for a complete listing of all of the things to do this weekend and all season.
