What we're about

Welcome to Free And Cheap Things in Boston (aka FACT-Boston)!

FACT-Boston has two primary objectives:

(1) inform people about free (or darn cheap) things to do in Boston that they might not otherwise know about, and

(2) help people find others to do those things with, in case they don't feel like doing them alone.

We'll find fun things to do that are either free or cost no more than $10. And we'll make some new friends in the process!

Here's to finding many FACTs (Free And Cheap Things) in Boston!


PS - You can now find us directly at http://www.FACT-Boston.com .

Feel free to suggest any free events you want. If you want to have a paid event by which you profit, you must speak with me regarding posting terms.

Would you like to meet other's who are also curious and or are already into these kind of things? Come out and join us, talk about a shared interest and make new friends. This is my second event like this but at a DIFFERENT location! This time we will be going to Seven Stars at 731 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139 to look at some crystal! I would be happy to have you as company, so please come and join me! The store has a nice selection of quality products like crystals, tarot cards, books wearable's, jewelry, and so much more all at a reasonable price. I will be there at 5pm- 5:20pm ish. I will bring a tarot deck and maybe give you a reading if you want, (I was told at the last event I was pretty accurate and to "put those cards away" hahaha! It was a good reading, don't worry.

HAVANA! Learn To Salsa/Bachata/Merengue!🕺Vamos A Bailar!

***Please read the whole post*** We had such a great time and turn out last time for this meetup and I've had several people approach me since about how they were unable to come last time. So here we are and I am EXCITED!!!!!!! This event is cross posted. Have you ever wanted to learn how to salsa, bachata and even merengue dance? Already know how but haven't been able to go out and use what you have learned!? HAVANA is awesome because not only are they comprehensive and easy to learn from the instructors, but the studio turns into a dance platform so you get to practice what you just learned with others! This lets you feel un-judged as you prefect your moves! So put on your dance shoes, bring a friend or two and come join us! I highly suggest you meet us at the first location so you can talk and get to know others at Mainely Burgers central sq. 704 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02139 AT 7PM. Meeting early will help so when surrounded by non meetup people at the Venue you wont feel overwhelmed because you now have FRIENDS! Plus me talking over loud music equal's me losing my voice... no bueno! Mainely Burgers/Talking 7pm-9PM Havana Dancing 9PM-2AM We will walk over to Havana at 9PM together. If anyone needs cash we can do a quick stop at CVS nearby for a .30 purchase with cash back (speaking from experience.) Beginner's very welcome No partners required Feel free to bring friends! Salsa Lessons start promptly at 9-10pm Salsa/Bachata/Merengue Dance Party: 10pm-2am $12 cash ONLY at the door please. Parking nearby $2.25 per hour, max $9/night next to Havana. R.S.V.P: Etiquette for my meetups, please be considerate. I r.s.v.p in advanced at restaurants. If you are a hard maybe/you feel like death though... just change your r.s.v.p accordingly. Drop in's are welcomed:)
