View the full Free Time Fervor Issue here.

The people of Somerville are doing amazing things in their work lives, but we think that what you do outside of work is important enough to merit its own issue. After all, what’s a better indicator of what people care about than how they choose to spend their free time?

People here push hard for the causes they care about, so we profiled a protest choir that helps people voice dissent (p.14). To unplug and destress, we found that people are flocking back to board games (p.18) and trying their hands at gourmet cooking (p.22). And for the wine lover, there’s a new liquor store from an old favorite (p.16).

Looking for something new in this city of endless activities? We put together a winter bucket list, full of ideas for what you can dive into even as the temperatures drop (p.26).

Whether you see your passions highlighted here or find something new you want to get involved in, we appreciate you taking some of your free time to be here with us.
