Ah, it’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter and the temperature is theoretically getting colder. Soon it will be time for you to either run around town trying to get gifts for all those special someones or break down and order everything online at the last minute. Well leave the running to us. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve scoured Somerville for locally sourced and sold gifts for our annual gift guide. In fact, there should be something here for just about everyone on your list. (Don’t worry: We’ll let you take all the credit.)

Friday, 11/21
2 – 6 p.m., Free
I’ve Been Everywhere, Man: Musicians on the Road
Nave Gallery Annex
53 Chester St.
To many, the life of a touring musician seems like a dream, but this exhibition at Nave Gallery shows that it ain’t always full of glitz and glamour. This exhibition ends on November 22, so make a point to stop by! Sponsored by Atwood’s Tavern and Panopticon Imaging. 

Tiny Homes: Solutions for the Haves and Have Nots

People are lined up around the parking lot at the former Waste Management site, nearly from end to end, all to get into what looks like a shed. The tiny home sits on a trailer bed in the middle of the Somerville Big Tiny House Festival as small groups shuffle in and out to get a look at the cramped but organized quarters. There’s room for a small kitchen, a lounging area and a bathroom. It’s not a lot of space, but it’s just enough to live comfortably, and to some, that’s attractive.

DSC_0345The November/December edition of Scout Somerville is packed with pages and pages of great local gift ideas, but you’re all getting a really rad present a few months early: two new managing editors. We’re the Emilies – Emily Cassel and Emily Hopkins – and we’re so pleased to be occupying your screen.
