3free_logo.gif Pinching pennies? Chic but cheap? We understand. Here are three free events this week for your going out pleasure.

Thursday, June 26

- Wine Tasting @ Envi: Get your drink on and your green on in one feel swoop. Pop by gorgeous Newbury eco-boutique Envi Thursday for a free wine tasting and to save 10% on all store merchandise (except sale items). On the menu? French wines from Chamarré (which means "bursting with colors" — le sigh, right?). The tasting is only open to the first 100 people who RSVP at 7-9 p.m.

Friday, June 27

- City Dance Party @ Cambridge City Hall: Yay for public dance parties under the stars. DJ Joey Demers is taking his summery soundtrack to the streets — literally, as the portion of Massachusetts Ave. between Inman and Bigelow Streets will be closed for swinging, skanking, breaking, and boogieing down. 7-11 p.m.

Saturday, June 28

- Scavenger Hunt @ the Boston Common: Banditos Misteriosos, the city's urban (fun) planners who are responsible for public pillow fights, silent dance parties, and other participatory shenanigans, are at it again. This Saturday, gumshoes (remember to sign up at can simply show up at the Boston Common for the hunt. A map and shoes are recommended. Those are all the details we have, folks. And, this message will self-destruct in two minutes. 12:30 p.m.
