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!
Thursday, March 22: Boston Promise March Madness Party. Bring your brackets and your buddies to Faneuil Hall for a night of college hoops, drinks and (complimentary) apps, and raffles and a silent auction to benefit Boston Promise, a local non-profit that "assist[s] Boston's youth basketball players in fulfilling their promise as scholars, athletes, and leaders in their communities." Cross your fingers that you don't end the night with a busted bracket! When and Where: 6 p.m.-9 p.m. @ The Point @ The Boston Stone Pub (147 Hanover St., Faneuil Hall).
Saturday, March 24: Boston Baseball Hack Day 2012. If baseball is your sport of choice and you've got the web developer/programmer/designer gene, join other baseball fans and techies on Saturday for a day of creating and building baseball-related technologies. Finished projects will be judged by Boston.com's sports editor, a software designer, developer, and consultant, and a local professor and baseball writer. When and Where: 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. @ The Boston Globe (135 Morrissey Blvd., Dorchester).
Saturday, March 24: Colleges of the Fenway Performing Arts Festival. Here's something you already know: There are a lot of colleges in the Boston area. But here's something you might not know: Students at six of those schools -- Emmanuel College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Simmons College, Wentworth Institute of Technology, and Wheelock College, collectively known as the Colleges of the Fenway -- have been hosting an annual performing arts festival for the past 15 years. This year's iteration offers over 100 performances, including singers and bands, dance classes and performances, and a poetry slam. When and Where: 1 p.m.-5 p.m. @ Colleges of the Fenway (375 Longwood Ave., Fenway).
Sunday, March 25: Mass Hysteria -- The Musical! We should all make fun of ourselves every once in a while. This five-person "musical, satirical cabaret" uses skits, standup, and song to take aim at everything weird and wacky about our fair state, from Mayor Mumbles to the Boston accent. If you've got other plans this particular Sunday, Mass Hysteria has dates scheduled once per weekend (excluding next weekend) through the end of April. When and Where: 2 p.m. @ Club Cafe (209 Columbus Ave., Back Bay).
