It's official: The winter blahs are already sucking my will to live. My husband says skiing will save us all, but I'm not so sure. You still have to go outside and drive four hours to an even colder climate to ski last time I checked.

I know, I know. I'm a total Debbie Downer. However, I just stumbled upon Banditos Misterisos' newest event: Snowmandito! Imagine: Hundreds of Bostonians descending upon Boston Common with carrots, sticks, and coal to build snowmen ? a garden of snowmen. That sounds positively bucolic. And a little bit cheerful. My frown is starting to turn upside down. My icy heart — it melts!


This snowy shindig will happen soon on a Friday or Saturday. The exact date is TBA ? it depends on the snow and weather, you see. Sign up for the Banditos' email alerts and you'll get word the night before the event.
