So much to do, so little time -- and so many event listings and Facebook invites to comb through! Lucky for you, we here at TNGG Boston can also fill in as your social planners. Each week, we'll feature a few weekend events we think you should check out.* If you know of an upcoming event that might appeal to our audience, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
*Note: TNGG is not receiving compensation of any kind to promote these events. We just think they sound like fun!
Today-Tuesday, Jan. 31: Paper Dresses Adorned. Lisa Vershbow, a Washington, D.C.-based metalsmith began creating two-dimensional paper dresses as a way to display her jewelry, but the creations have since become artwork in and of themselves. While the life-sized dresses can't actually be worn, this exhibit, which is open only a few more days, is a must for any fashionista. When and Where: Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. @ Ars Libri (500 Harrison Ave., South End).
Thursday, Jan. 26: Boston Networking Club Cocktail Party. Stop by the South End after work for an event that bills itself as "the largest monthly business and social networking event in Boston." The night will include drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and door prizes -- and, of course, the chance to meet a bunch of Boston-area professionals. Don't forget those business cards! When and Where: 6 p.m.-10 p.m. @ Splash Boston (150 Kneeland St., South End).
Saturday, Jan. 28: First Annual Fenway Chili Cook-off. Chili is one of the best foods for a cold winter day, so bundle up and head to Church with an empty stomach on Saturday afternoon. For $8 ($10 at the door), you'll be able to taste chili recipes from the chefs at Fenway-area restaurants like Sweet Caroline's and Tasty Burger and find out who will be crowned the neighborhood's chili champion. When and Where: 1 p.m.-4 p.m. @ Church of Boston (69 Kilmarnock St., Fenway).
Sunday, Jan. 29: Brahmin Social Sunday. "This brunch is not for the conservative or the weary," warn its organizers. "No kids, no chores, no errands, no laundry...come ready to party [and] forget about real life for the afternoon." A special brunch menu, $3 screwdrivers, and music by DJ Chris Roxx make this event the perfect way to spend a Sunday Funday. When and Where: 11:30 a.m.-5 p.m. @ The Brahmin (33 Stanhope St., Back Bay/South End).
