When I’m stressed out and overwhelmed by schoolwork, laughter and getting in “Formation” tends to help. Lucky for you and me, dear readers, Boston makes both easy this weekend. There’s also a chance for you to get out to the mysterious Boston Harbor Islands. Ever seen “Shutter Island?” You might recognize a few scenes while you wander Peddocks Island. Speaking of movies, you can celebrate them at Landsdowne Pub’s Oscar Watch Party on Sunday. I’ll be rooting for “La La Land” (you can read why here), but crossing my fingers for some viral speeches. I mean, with that much champagne flowing, who knows what will happen.
