1) This is a short workweek for most folks, and there’s precious little time to plan your New Year’s Eve schedule. One part of the planning is already done, however: The MBTA has released its New Year’s Eve operating schedule. Service is free after 8 p.m. and the Blue, Green, Orange and Red Lines are running rush hour service from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m.. Check the MBTA’s website for all the details.
2) Christmas may be over, but the Downtown Boston Holiday Market is still up and running. Head over to the Summer Street tent (across from Macy’s) and check out the wares from local artisans and food vendors. The market opens at 11 a.m..
3) Between your family’s gift swapping, your work’s secret Santa, and your friends' yankee swap, you almost certainly got a less-than-awesome gift. It’s OK, it happens, but we’d love to hear about it! Join our conversation and tell us about what you’ll be re-gifting next year.
4) This is either an invitation or a warning, depending on your point of view: It’s $2 college skate night on the frog pond. Anyone with a valid college ID can get on the ice for cheap. WERS will be there playing music as well. The skate runs from 5–9 p.m..
5) Expect a sunny day and soggy night for Tuesday. High temperatures will reach the upper 40’s. Tonight’s rain could come with thunderstorms (yes, it’s still warm enough for thunderstorms) and bouts of heavy rain.
