once a year the glass studio at MIT has a glass pumpkin patch that's a sight to see. let's check that out for an hour or so, get lunch at the Miracle of Science LEAVING THE PUMPKIN PATCH AT 11:30, then head over to the MIT Musuem and after that, if there's interest, we can walk over to see the building the architect, Frank Gehry, designed for MIT.
Here's the links.

btw, if you think you might want to buy one of the pumpkins I suggest getting there at 10 am, or better yet, go to the friday night preview to pick out some favorites. They get bought up fast. And I believe the prices range from $20 up well over $100.
