The Good Life – 10/12/18

THIS WEEK’S TOP TREAT

Blues and Brews Oktoberfest 2018
Sunday, Oct. 21 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Nashoba Valley Winery | Bolton, Mass. | FareHarbor.com

Not to be confused with the Blues & Brews event in Westford, this one’s a little out of the way, but still well worth checking out! Head over to Nashoba Valley Winery for a fall festival highlighting the winery’s hand-crafted micro-brews while you get into the season with great food, beautiful scenery and the fantastic sounds of blues bands including The Fat City Band and Salty Dog Blues.

A&E AROUND THE VALLEY

“Murder for Two”
Oct. 17 – Nov. 11
Merrimack Repertory Theatre | Lowell, Mass. | MRT.org

Who killed the great American novelist Arthur Whitney at his own surprise party? In this zany whodunit, comedy musical, every guest has a motive. Was it the prima ballerina, the widow, the niece, the psychiatrist — or even the detective? Two actors play 13 roles — and the piano — in this entertaining homage to old-fashioned murder mysteries.
