Hello, JP! Here's your Morning Memo for all things Jamaica Plain for Thursday, Sept. 4.
Free Screening of "The Royal Tenenbaums": All week we've been previewing aspects of the First Thursday Art Walk (like the Canadian Bacon sandwich on offer and live music from an all-female Queen tribute band). Here's one more: Starting about 8 p.m., the off-beat Wes Anderson jewel "The Royal Tenenbaums" will be projected on the lawn at the Loring-Greenough House, 12 South St.
The MFA is Free to Everyone on Sunday: One of the city's treasures, the Museum of Fine Arts, is easily accessible from JP via the 39 Bus. On Sunday, the museum holds a Community Day where everyone gets in free. 10 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, 465 Huntington Ave.
Good Environmental News: Speaking of city treasures, the EPA gave the Charles River an A- for cleanliness in 2013. The formerly dirty water was good for boating 96 percent of the time and safe for swimming 70 percent of the time.
Mark Your Calendars for the Boston Fermentation Festival: Egleston Square will host the second annual Boston Fermentation Festival later this month. I just wanted to put in an advance word to the picklers out there (and I know we've got plenty of you in JP) that this free festival is coming up. Saturday, Sept. 27, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Egleston Farmer's Market, 45 Brookside Ave.[selfie]
