What, are those crickets I hear?  Or perhaps the quiet snuffling of the Easter Bunny?  Things may seem to be pretty quiet in the ‘Ville this weekend, but fear not.  Somerville Open Studios are quickly approaching… In the meantime, regardless of whether you find yourself at a family dinner or just disappointed that the gym is closed on Sunday, enjoy your weekend!
