calendar mid-flip.pngSo 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 with the details.

*Note: TNGG is not receiving compensation of any kind to promote these events. We just think they sound like fun!

Thursday, March 29-Saturday, March 31: CUBA in-side-out, out-side-in. YOS’s newest exhibition is a “provocative show [that] explores the perspective of two artists and their relationships with the island of Cuba.” The show runs through April 8, so even if you're already booked solid this weekend, you still have some time to check it out. However, if you’re free this Saturday, March 31, at 5 p.m., you can catch a lecture (“The Painted Portrait in the Time of the iPhone”) hosted by Enrique Flores-Galbis, one of the featured artists. When and Where: Thursdays-Saturdays, noon-6 p.m., and by appointment @ Yes.Oui.Si. (19 Vancouver St., Fenway).

Thursday, March 29: Speed Consulting at Babson College. A local school known for its entrepreneurship program, Babson’s “speed consulting” event aims to connect young startup founders with experienced advisors to discuss the challenges the former are facing. Founders will cycle through 10 groups of advisors, spending 15 minute with each; they’ll also have the opportunity to meet and network with other local startup founders. When and Where: 5:30 p.m. @ Babson College (231 Forest St., Wellesley).

Friday, March 30: Museum of Science Free Film Fridays. You’ve probably been to an IMAX theater before, but if you haven’t seen a film on the Museum of Science’s five-story dome IMAX screen, you’re missing out. This Friday is the last day of the museum’s Free Film Fridays, so why not bring some friends, get complimentary tickets, and see a screening of Dolphins or Tornado Alley. When and Where: Throughout the day @ Museum of Science (1 Science Park, West End).

Saturday, March 31: KONOCOPIA. Dance your Saturday night away at this party featuring nine of Boston’s hottest DJs spinning everything from Latin music to R&B on two different nightclub floors. Proceeds from the event will help fund a Berklee scholarship in memory of DJ Kris Kono, Boston’s “First Lady of House,” who passed away last year after a battle with cancer. General admission tickets are only $15; if you want to splurge, the $40 VIP tickets include a bunch of free swag and special lounge access. When and Where: 8 p.m. @ Machine (1254 Boylston St., Fenway).
