Wondering when you can catch us over the holiday weekend?

The Cafe will be open lots!  Wednesday 9/2 till 9:30pm (with Wiretap Wednesday Open Mic), then Thursday-Saturday 8 AM – 6 PM.  It’ll be closed Sunday 9/6 (no events), but open regular hours on Labor Day Monday, 8 AM – 6 PM.

The Office, however, will be taking an extended break.  We’re here till 6 PM on Wednesday 9/2, then closed Thursday-Monday, reopening Tuesday 9/8 at 10 AM.

Enjoy your holiday weekend!

Event Preview: AniMAtic Boston, Mar. 25

Is everyone enjoying the first week of spring?  Okay, so maybe the temperatures haven’t felt quite “seasonal” yet but as New Englanders we need to embrace the little milestones we set for ourselves; whether it’s St. Patrick’s Day or the Red Sox season opener, those markers in the sand keep us going.

And, so does art and the sense of community that comes with supporting it!  So make a plan to visit the Armory to get a little more color in your life.  Here’s one surefire way to accomplish that: AniMAtic Boston.  On Wednesday, March 25th in the Cafe the Boston animation community welcomes the great Tom Snyder. Tom has been writing and creating animation in Boston for over 30 years. He founded Tom Snyder Productions, (which later became Soup2Nuts) created the Comedy Central hit show Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist and recently teamed up with Jonathan Katz once again to create the web series Explosion Bus.  Now that’s a colorful guy!

Doors open at 7pm for networking opportunities with other area animators and members of the community before Tom’s talk starts at 7:30pm.

March Happiness

Spring is coming, we can actually feel it here at the Armory!

It occurred to us this morning that most of our blog updates have been about nothing but the weather; we even took to referring to snow as “the s-word!” Yet with the sun shining so brightly and Daylight Savings Time giving us another hour of it, as well as predictions that the mercury might even touch 50 degrees this week, we are officially optimistic that the Somerville earth will eventually thaw!

And, as it does, you’ll have no shortage of great reasons to come visit us!  Check out the March calendar, we promise you’ll start feeling warmer already!

Weather 2/21-23

Maybe we’ll avoid the S–w word this time?

Events today (Saturday 2/21) are all running as scheduled.

We’re supposed to have 5 (!) events tomorrow in the Cafe, Hall, and Mezz.  If the weather stays kind and just sends us rain, we’ll hopefully run all of them.  If the s–w word comes back into the picture… we’ll do our best, but stop back here tomorrow for updates!

Heartening thought: One of our Cafe regulars pointed out that Daylight Savings Time is now only 2 weeks away, so that must mean the end of winter is in sight, right?!?  Keeping fingers crossed!

Stay warm, and hope to see you soon!
