The warmer weather is here and people are venturing outside again. That means it’s time to start my entertainment district walking tours for 2021. First up is “Boston Nightlife at Mid-Century,” a stroll through the Theatre District and Bay Village—by day—on Saturday, June 5.
The 90-minute Theatre District nightlife walk is sponsored by Lexington Community Education, and preregistration is required. The cost is $25 per person. For complete info, or to register, go to the Lexington Community Education website.
What: Walking tour, “Boston Nightlife at Mid-Century.”
When: Saturday, June 5, 2021 (rain date Saturday, June 12) 10:00-11:30 a.m.
Where: Meet on the Boston Common, at the corner of Boylston and Tremont streets.
Accessibility: Route follows city sidewalks.
Among the notable people whose paths we’ll cross are James Brown, George Carlin, Miles Davis, Billy Eckstine, Duke Ellington, Christine Jorgensen, and Diana Ross. We’ll also meet two generations of Boston entertainers and a couple gangsters who prefer not to be identified at this time. Hope to see you there.
