No plans this weekend? As usual, Sidekick is here to help. On Friday and Saturday shopaholics can spend some dough toward a good cause at Retail Therapy. Head on down to Downtown Crossing to pick up a passport good for a bunch of discounts and giveaways. Proceeds benefit Boston Medical Center's healthcare programs for the homeless. The passport requires a $15 donation, but the chance to shop for a good cause is pretty priceless.
Also on Saturday, funk legend Maceo Parker blows his horn at Harpers Ferry for an intimate show. He's worked with James Brown, Parliament/Funkadelic, and Prince, in addition to his own numerous albums. It's a sweet, funky way to end such a busy day.
