It’s Thursday, and you’ve got no idea what you’ll do for the weekend.
Patch is coming to the rescue. We’ve got the best bets for your done-work-outta-here time. Check our picks for the activities to hit and new bars/restaurants/shops to explore.
1. NERF NIGHT
Where/when: , 103 Terrace Hall Ave; Friday at 7 p.m.
Why go: During the annual “The Spies Have It” New Year gathering and orientation of all the worlds’ top spies, someone’s hi-tech blaster “accidentally” fires. Suddenly, chaos breaks out. Darts are flying everywhere, tables become cover, and everyone is a potential enemy. Everyone is fighting everyone and when the last dart flies we’ll see which spies had what it takes to survive. Bring your blaster (or use ours) and your friends and we’ll provide the darts and entertainment.
Pricing: $20 per person.
Where/when: 40 Cross St, Winchester; Friday at 8 p.m.
