Thank you for subscribing to By the Way Berkshires weekly newsletter. We’ll sent out a roundup of events once a week, with new stories and places we are discovering. It comes out by the end of the day on Wednesdays, so you’ll see it in your inbox on Thursday mornings. (If you don’t see it, you may want to check your tabs and filters.)

On this website you’ll find stories and an events calendar, and food to go right now in Covid-19, searchable lists of restaurants, performance spaces, art museums, trails and more.

The newsletter distills some of the ones that stand out to me.

This is a rich place to wander. Doors are open when you know where to look. I’ve lived here 20 years, and I find new places and people every day. You can sit on a blanket, sharing blueberries and talking with a friend while you’re waiting for a new play to begin. You can dance to live bluegrass and African blues.
