Newton Cultural Alliance | Highlights Arts & Culture | Things To Do |

*Every week a different Newton restaurant is popping up at The Allen Center’s gorgeous patio, bringing new tastes, cuisines, and cultures to West Newton. On Thursday, July 20th from 11:30-2:30 pm All Over Newton brings another Lunch-Time Pop-Up to The Allen Center. This week will feature Super Dough Pizza! Some of the best pizza in Newton isn’t made in a high-end wood-fired oven, it’s created in a trailer fitted out as a mobile kitchen. If you love pizza and haven’t tried Super Dough Pizza yet, you won’t want to miss this Allen Center Pop-Up. Market vendors this week include Creation Station- Newtonville’s creative arts programs for kids, Motion Study- Newton Highland’s welcoming Barre Studio, Nothing Bundt Cakes- Serving festive and personal-sized bundtlet cakes, Blondie Salon- A full-service Newton Centre salon, and Lotus & Lettuce- A hyper-local sustainable florist. Lunch ordering instructions and more info about the vendors are found at All Over Newton here.
