for the week of February 6th

Get your Irish on!  Southie’s Own (396 West Broadway) is fully stocked with Irish knits, scally caps, and made to order sweater sets for your wee-ones!  Remember: St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner!  Make sure you dress the part!

Peace be with you.  On February 9th at 6:30pm – at Medicine Wheel Productions is a FREE screening of  the new documentary, Acting Together on the World Stage. “The project documents a peacebuilding performance, highlighting artists, peacebuilders, and community leaders from every continent whose rituals and theatrical works speak truth to power and support communities to mourn losses and build bridges across differences.” There will be a reception at MWP’s Spoke Gallery (you can see the current show) and an informal discussion follows the screening (110 K Street, 2nd Floor, South Boston 02127) For more info:http://mwponline.org/wordpress/?page_id=2

Love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to make a connection.  In Southie, we would have to guess, there are thousands of missed opportunities to make a love connection. ?Maybe you’ve been stalking a cute bartender at the Beer Garden.  Or maybe it’s the cute girl on the #7.  Whoever it is, let them know! We will post your missed connection and let fate happen.  What have you got to lose? Send your missed connection to Maureen at [email protected]

Join Senator Jack Hart for a neighborhood reception at the L Street Tavern.  On Friday, February 10, from 6:30pm-9:30, enjoy traditional Irish Music by Inchicore, mix and mingle with your neighbors, and belly up to the bar.   Suggested donation: $30 for one, $50 for two or donate online @ http://senatorjackhart.com/
