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!

Provincetown Winter Nightlife

So, you did something this past summer that you can’t stop thinking about…. it’s there every time you close your eyes. I know what it was, I won’t tell anyone. Promise. If you think you have to wait a full year to relive that experience, you are clearly mistaken.  What am I getting at?  Night life and après party in Provincetown, it goes on and on and it goes year-round. Well, mostly year-round. We all know some months are a bit hotter and louder than others.

Nightlife in Provincetown

Right now, it’s cold. Really cold. There’s the misconception that Cape Cod goes to sleep to contend with the winter. It’s not entirely untrue. Those days when it’s pouring rain AND freezing? Yeah, that’s why they invented the phrase “hunker down.” But, in reality, there’s always more going on than one thinks. Here are a couple of places that are still hopping when the sun goes down this winter:

 

The Atlantic House or A-House: open 12PM -12AM:  Provincetown’s first post office turned dance club.  Got Male?

 

The Paramount at the Crown and Anchor: They’re hosting some of the Snowbound Leather Weekend XII events Fri, 2/23/18 – Sun, 2/25/1818.

 

Hope to see you all out there! We’re closed at the moment but Valentine’s Day weekend is coming up!
