Eight Great Things To Do This Weekend – 2/18/21
ONE: Support local business and enjoy great food this weekend by celebrating North Andover Restaurant Week: Take Out 2021, hosted by the North Andover Merchants Association. Restrictions, cold weather and limited seating has hurt restaurants over the past year. There will be $20.21 menu specials and Family Meal Deals. Spread the word and eat out starting this Sunday, Feb. 21. For more details click here, or visit the Merchants’ website here.
TWO: This weekend is your last chance to check out the Winter Juried Show – Part 1 at the Newburyport Art Association. This exhibit features juror-selected works in acrylic, digital art, photography, printmaking, mixed media and sculpture. The exhibit is open Wednesday through Saturdays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For details, click here.
THREE: Get up and dance to some classic hits during the Palace Theatre’s virtual stream of Sound of the 80s. This virtual tribute will feature classics from Queen, Def Leppard, REO Speedwagon, Journey, Pat Benatar and many more. The show starts at 7 p.m. this Friday night. Click here for tickets.
FOUR: Join the Chelmsford Public Library’s for the Virtual Bestselling Author event featuring Luanne Rice, who will discuss her latest novel “The Shadow Box.” The novel is a haunting thriller about how far one wife is willing to go to expose the truth — and the lengths someone will go to stop her.

FIVE: Enjoy a night of food, drinks and acoustic music at The Boat in Dracut. This Saturday night, see local acoustic duo Mt.
