What to do in Provincetown this February

Is this winter going by slowly for you too? For whatever reason, every time I look at the calendar, I’m shocked that it’s still only the beginning of February. This season has seemed like a slow slog. Normally I love winter, but this year, we’ve had our share of rain and almost no snow to speak of. Wet and cold is not my idea of fun. I’ll take a big snowstorm over rain any day of the week. I’m still waiting for the big one of the season.

So to pick myself up, I’ve added a few must-do’s to my schedule. Take note if you’re feeling adventurous or maybe just bored. First on my plate is Valentine’s Day dinner at The Pointe restaurant which falls on their 2 for 1 Wednesday night special. Both menu and staff are exquisite and everyone should experience the charm of the dining room.  Right around now, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provicetown is showing Maia Chao……I love her work! It’s a short show—the exhibition is up until the 14th. It’s a must see. Rumor has it that the Waters Edge Cinema is going to be showing “Pennies from Heaven” by Herbert Ross on the 21st at 7pm.  Who doesn’t like early an 80’s Steve Martin, Christopher Walken or Bernadette Peters?  FYI Bernadette won a Golden Globe for best actress in this, not to mention the film was nominated for 3 Oscars. Waters Edge is also showing all four of the Oscar nominated animated shorts (including some bonus films). I’m an animation nut so I’m psyched to be able to catch them. They’re not just for kids, you know! All in all, some solid entertainment for otherwise quiet Cape Cod evenings. Hope to see you on the town!
