We won’t let the Super Bowl overshadow this weekend. Yes, it is one of our things to do this weekend, but there are plenty of other local events that have nothing to do with a television and couch that you can enjoy long before Sunday evening.
Each Friday morning Hamilton-Wenham Patch’s “Get Out” weekend planner brings you a quick guide to local events and activities.
The weekend calendar includes a wide variety of things to do and we encourage you to look past this weekend guide into our full calendar of events, where we have other events listed.
Remember, if you have great ideas of your own that you want to share, please feel free to add them in the comments section at the bottom.
Where/When: Wenham Museum; Friday, 5 p.m.
Why Go: Turn off the phone, put down the mouse and hide the TV clicker – it’s time for a classic board game. Show up at Wenham Museum to enjoy some classic family games and some good old-fashion fun. Call ahead to register.

Where/When: Cherry Farm Creamery, Danvers; Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon

5. WATCH THE PATRIOTS IN THE SUPER BOWL AT A LOCAL ESTABLISHMENT
Where/When: 15 Walnut Bistro; Sunday, 6:30 pm.
