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 email@example.com with the details.
*Note: TNGG is not receiving compensation of any kind to promote these events. We just think they sound like fun!
Friday, Feb. 10: A Very Fine Valentine. Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, so what better way to start off your pre-Valentineís Day weekend than a show from Bostonís very own J.T. tribute band, The Timberfakes? If the former N*SYNC crooner isnít your style, East Coast Soulís Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder covers can get you in the mood instead. The first 200 people through the door will receive a complimentary Harpoon beer, so get there early! When and Where: Doors at 8 p.m. @ Hard Rock Cafe Boston (24 Clinton St., Faneuil Hall).
Saturday, Feb. 11: Crawl In Boston Valentineís Crawl. In the spirit of using every holiday as an excuse to drink (nothiní wrong with that!), Crawl In Boston has organized a 16-bar, Faneuil Hall-area crawl to benefit the Hattie B. Cooper Community Center. For a $5 donation, youíll receive a koozie and a wristband, which gets you into each bar for free and access to drink specials. Wear red or pink to show your V-day spirit, and ďif you want to dress as Cupid, thatís more than encouraged.Ē When and Where: 12:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. @ Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
Saturday, Feb. 11: Canít Keep ĎEm Apart -- A Beer & Chocolate Love Story. Chocoholics and craft beer fanatics (not mutually exclusive), hereís your plan for Saturday afternoon: Donate $3 at this event sponsored by Taza Chocolate and Drink Craft Beer, receive four pairings of chocolate and beer, and give a bunch of meals to the Greater Boston Food Bank. Sounds like a good time to me! When and Where: 2 p.m.-6 p.m. @ Taza Chocolate Factory Store (561 Windsor St., Somerville).
Sunday, Feb. 12: †Souper Bowl IV. Thereís nothing better than a good soup on a cold day, especially when itís locally sourced and sipped from a beautiful handmade bowl, which is exactly what youíll find at this event. Local chefs will be serving up plenty of tasty soup varieties, and because the admission price benefits the Haley House Soup Kitchen, that warm feeling youíll get wonít just be from the soups youíll be tasting. When and Where: 2 p.m.-6 p.m. @ Haley House Bakery Cafe (12 Dade St., Dudley Square).
