Don’t you love it when you check the weather app for the weekend and rain is the only thing in the forecast? Wrong! Well, that’s what Boston can apparently expect. It may come as a bummer to some since the city is slowly starting to open back up, but don't fret. I’m still focusing my attention on finding virtual events you can enjoy from the inside of your dry home.

With summer underway, this is a wonderful time to make sure your little ones are getting creative. ICA educators will guide art projects, view contemporary artwork and will host collage making via Zoom for the kiddos. The day will end with yoga taught by Boston-based yoga teacher Marlene Boyette. A day great for the whole family!

To celebrate National Caribbean Heritage Month, Boston JerkFest producer Nicola Williams will be cooking jerk chicken. Other Boston restaurants will offer special jerk dishes and music will be provided by Sista Dee, DJ Rugged One and more. This is an introductory event to the festival in July, so be on the lookout for more Boston JerkFest virtual events.

June is Black Music Month and we can join in on the celebration with some of Boston’s favorite DJs. DJ ReaL P, DJ Slick Vick, DJ Bobby Bangers and more will perform live virtual sets to close out the month. Registration is required, so be sure to secure your spot!
It’s time to relax your shoulders and take some deep breaths, which is kind of hard to do right now. Arlington-based Lotus Yoga Studio is here to help you achieve some inner peace (or at least help you loosen up your body) with virtual classes. The studio offers all-levels flow classes and a candlelight restorative class. This might be the perfect activity to send you into next week on a high note.

The Provincetown Theater is streaming an all-star adaption of the show “The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me.” Originally a one-man show by playwright David Drake, it was adapted into a multi-person performance for the 20th anniversary. Twelve gay men will fill the roles and perform monologues about queer experiences during the AIDS crisis. It’s a free, one-time-only stream, so you don’t want to miss it!
