5-starA Wonderful Way To Spend Saturday Morning
The Regent's Famiy Fun Saturdays are an inexpensive way to see some very good performers. Arrive a bit early, or buy tickets in advance, as shows are popular. In winter, the theater is COLD; bundle up! Before or after showtime, hit Carberry's Bakery or any of the other enticing restaurants and cafes that line Mass. Ave. in Arlington Center.
