Five Things: State Reps and the Fab Four
And some good news on the weather front.
Today is Monday, Feb. 7. Here are five things you need to know:
We might get some melting today. Temperatures could top 36 degrees, according to Weather Underground. After the past few weeks, that could be a great thing. If all this snow endures until the first warm spring storm, we could have a real problem on our hands. So, if you see a big puddle today, smile at it; it’s a problem that we’re not dealing with later.
Meet some friends over… paint? The Senior Center will host a drop-in painting session from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. today. It’s an unstructured time when up to six people can gather to coat their canvases and share stories about their lives. Space is limited. Call ahead if you’re interested.
Learn to cook. ZuZu’s Café in Wakefield will host a cooking class tonight and every Monday night in February. Tonight’s class will include how to prepare a gourmet dinner, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Beyond budgets. After a string of budget-centric meetings, the School Committee will meet tonight for a budget-free agenda. State Reps. Brad Jones and Jim Dwyer will drop by, and the committee will also discuss whether or not it should rename a handful of school sites in honor of important community members.
Remember the British Invasion? On this day in 1964, The Beatles arrived in the United States for the first time. Two days later, they performed on The Ed Sullivan Show, and quickly cemented their place in pop music history. Heck, they even got their own Rock Band game. So, if you happen to have any on your iPod, this could be a good day to rock out to some Fab Four hits. My personal favorite is “Paperback Writer.”
