Arts And Culture In Cambridge, Massachusetts
Cambridge Antiques Market
Spend an afternoon getting lost in the CAM. This is a great spot for one-stop antique and gift shopping. Walk downstairs and chat with the bicycle mechanics at Cambridge Used Bicycles. You can find English Raleighs and Robin Hoods in good shape and for a good price. Don't miss the art prints downstairs as well!
Raven Used Books
Raven, on JFK Street, has high-quality used books and specializes in the arts and humanities. I've found my best loved original editions here.
Middle East Downstairs
The Middle East is a great corner in Central Square to check out both mainstream and local bands. The bar isn't overpriced, and the Middle Eastern cuisine in the restaurant (ZuZu) is some of the best in Cambridge. A few bands who have played here in the past few years include Explosions in the Sky, The Album Leaf, Do Make Say Think, and Mono.
