Looking for something to do on Friday night? You can sit on a blanket in a high meadow, sharing blueberries while you’re waiting for a new play to begin. You can dance to live bluegrass and African blues.

By the Way Berkshires has a free weekly newsletter with a roundup of events and new stories and places we are discovering — if you want to take a look, just scroll down. The newsletters come out by email, so you’ll see it in your inbox on Wednesday evening or on Thursday morning, before I post them here.

This is a rich place, even in deep winter. Even in a pandemic. I’ve lived here 20 years, and I find new places and people every day. Doors are open when you know where to look. Let me show you some of the ones that stand out to me.

If you would like to join in

Just let us know your email address below. I will only ask for an email address, and I will never give it away or use it for anything other than what you have asked for right here. You will get a confirmation email from Mailpoet, and you’ll need to confirm with the click of a button. Thank you!
