The Inn, Shui Spa, and the Pointe Restaurant are back open after a brief pause this winter.  Whether you are a guest of the inn or a Provincetown local, it is a challenge to get out this time of year.  Fortunately, most local businesses and organizations know that and so they come up with these brilliant, creative ways of stirring us off of our cozy couches (you can drink that hot tea later!) and back out into the world.  Here are a few of our favorites:

To Eat

Mac’s Fish House ‎Provincetown has its Winter to Spring Dinner Series on select Wednesdays through April 19.  Each special dinner event featured a multi-course meal and paired wines.  Upcoming dinner themes include St. Patrick’s Day Twist (March 15), New Southern (March 29), and Alsatian Cuisine (April 19).   A meal worth getting out of the house for?  Perfect for winter!

To Learn

Provincetown Library offers Winter Wednesdays, a free community program of compelling courses, perfect for these deep, dark winter months.  All sessions are offered for free on a drop-in basis. With classes in cooking, baking, art, film, yoga, geneology and more, there’s a flavor for everyone. Click here for more information.

To Listen

Now in it’s 26th (!!) year, the Coffeehouse @ The Mews is an open mic for writers, playwrights, poets, singers, songwriters, comedians, etc.  It is every Monday night through May 8, 2017 with host and co-founder, singer songwriter Peter Donnelly. You can also listen live, on Mondays, from 7-9:30pm here.

To Watch

We covered movies nights in a previous post, but they are worth mentioning again.

As part of the Film Art Series, the Provincetown Film Society presents screenings of a wide variety of films (from the early 20th century on) every Wednesday, 7p.m. at Waters Edge Cinema.  If Friday works better for you, every Friday, 7p.m., at the Sage Inn & Lounge, film historian Michelle Crone presents a different film from 1939, a year she describes as “the greatest year in the history of filmmaking.” Films include The Wizard of Oz (March 3), Wuthering Heights (March 10), and Goodbye Mr. Chips (March 24).
