Chances are come Friday or Saturday night you can pretty much guess what you and your friends are going to be doing. Whether you’re hitting up the mods, MAs or a party off campus, you basically know where you’re going to be.
While there’s nothing wrong with having a routine, after awhile you’re bound to get bored. So, when the weekend rut happens what do you do? Do you just stay in and watch movies with your roommates? Maybe. But, if staying in doesn’t sound like something you want to do here are some ideas to spice up your weekend.
1. Go into Boston
Whether it’s to go shopping or to try out a new club, going into Boston is a surefire way to be exposed to something new. Even if you just go to the North End to try every bakery to see which one is actually the best, you’re bound to have a good time.
2. Go to the movies
Remember how it was the “thing to do” in middle school? Well, it still can be the thing to do when you’re looking for something to do but not wanting to have to get all dressed up and go out. Besides, award season is just around the corner, so great movies will be coming out.
3. Go rock climbing
Most indoor rock-climbing places are open late, so if you go around five or six with a group of friends you’ll be back in time to still go out if you want to or go out to dinner afterwards in the city. Regardless of whether you’re good or not, you’ll be having a great time with your friends. And hey, who doesn’t love getting a workout without realizing it?!
4. Go play laser tag
Lazer Quest is open until 2am, so what better way then to get a huge group of friends together to have some fun. Growing up, hide-n-seek was probably one of my favorite games, but when it involved lasers, it became the best game in the world.
5. Learn something new
Whether it’s salsa dancing or ice skating, trying something you’ve never done before will not only be a ton of fun to do with your friends, but it will also make you feel awesome about yourself.
6. Go to karaoke
While this is going to take some bravery, nothing will be more hilarious than when you and your group of friends take the stage to belt out your favorite rendition of some 90s one hit wonder. Once you get over your stage fright, the memories will be countless.
