tumblr_lo5bgzKD7z1qj114jo1_500Here are our favorite Somerville events for the coming weekend:

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. 

11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Cost Varies
Opening Weekend

Slumbrew’s “American Fresh Taproom”
Assembly Row
The weather has finally gotten cold enough to keep us from eating outside, but the brand new outdoor taproom from Somerville Brewing Company is located under a heated tent – a pretty fair compromise. Head over to this one-of-a-kind new venue for beer, sandwiches, charcuterie and local treats.

Saturday, 11/22
10 a.m. – 12 p.m., $15
Minecrafting to Learn While Learning to Minecraft
Parts and Crafts
577 Somerville Ave.
Whether your kid is already an avid Minecrafter or is curious about the hugely popular world building game, this workshop is a chance for parents and children to connect over the computer. $15 for kiddos, but parents attend free.

7 p.m., Free
Makesgiving
Artisan’s Asylum
10 Tyler St.
This annual potluck at Artisan’s Asylum continually brings friends, families and community members together for a night of fun and food, but this year there’s an added twist: all attendees are asked to bring a prepackaged food item or grocery store gift card to help those who are less fortunate. Sharing and caring.

Sunday, 11/23
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., $10
Weekend Wakeup Parkour Class
Somerville High School
81 Highland Ave.
Kick off your Sunday with some hardcore parkour. Classes are available for all skill and fitness levels and are led by experienced instructors. Recommended for teens and adults age 14 and up.
