Boston Center for Adult Education

If you're not taking a class at the Boston Center for Adult Education, you're missing out. Big time.

I trekked over to the BCAE's super hip new location in the South End last night with no expectations, save for my memories of 'adult education' on the Cape, which consisted of a group of bored people under my high school's fluorescents learning about tidal patterns.

This? Amazing. First of all, the BCAE's new space is absolutely gorgeous. Second, the classes on the roster last night included whiskey tasting, wine tasting, ghost science, and cooking for singles. See? I am not making this up. And there's so much more where that came from. And not to mention, on Fridays, the BCAE does what they call "Friday Night Out". Because many of the classes on Fridays are single-session, Friday Night Out is essentially a reception for those coming in and taking the class, a chance to mix and mingle, hang out, drink wine, and listen to great live music before taking your class. Who knew education could be so fun?

I did say whiskey tasting, right??
