3/24: Three for free

Posted by Courtney Hollands March 24, 2008 10:34 AM

Pinching pennies? Chic but cheap? We understand. Here are three free events this week for your going out pleasure.

Wednesday, March 26

- Ladies Night @ News: What's better than a free meal? Nothing. Technically, you have to buy a cocktail to get the three-course meal — but honestly, you were going to buy a martini or a mojito (or three) anyways, right? DJ Jay Prouty provides the noshing soundtrack. 5-11 p.m.

- Betsey Johnson fashion show @ Estate: Betsey's designs are often out on a fashion limb, so to speak, but we can't wait to embrace the craziness of her Spring 2008 collection. Ruffles, ribbons, and neon hues, oh my! The fashion show is free before 10 p.m.and the first 200 guests get goody bags. Just like Christmas! 9-11 p.m.

Thursday, March 27

- Gene Wilder book signing @ Borders Back Bay: Willy Wonka himself stops in Boston to promote his new, whimsical book, "The Woman Who Wouldn't." This is the actor's second historical novella — who knew? 6 p.m.

[Betsey makes poofy prom confections for the Rainbow Brite in all of us.]
