5 THINGS: Christmas, The Battery and Jazz

If you’re making Christmas cookies, don’t get that cheap frozen dough.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, November 30, 2012:

How do they celebrate Christmas around the world? Find out at the Museum of Primitive Art and Culture at 3 p.m.!

This has nothing to do with pink bunnies. Author Doug Wardwell will be speaking about his book, The Battery, at 3 p.m. at the Peace Dale Library. For more info on the book, check out the page on Amazon.

It’s jazz, baby! Part III of the URI Jazz Series is tonight, at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 for the general public, and $5 for students.

RIDOT: Watch out for altered travel pattern! Route 1 North and South will have some diversions near the Pond Street and Salt Pond Road exits for bridge inspections. They’re taking place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, so add some extra time to your commute if you’re affected.

What better way to spend your Friday night? The Narragansett Town Manager Search Committee is scheduled for 7 p.m. at town hall.

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Cities for Life Day. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).

Santa AND Cookies!!! The South Kingstown Guild is holding a kids’ cookie creation class on Dec. 1, but they would like people to pre-register, for obvious reasons. For more information, click here. The class is aimed at children ages 5 to 10, and the cost is $12 per child. Also, the Guild is hosting Santa on Dec. 5, 6 and 7, but the program is limited to SK residents. For more info, click here.

Give the gift of food this holiday season. Children’s Dentistry of Wakefield is having a food drive from now until Dec. 19. For more info, click here.

Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!

They probably had a lot of splainin’ to do. On this day in 1940, Lucille Ball married Desi Arnaz.

She’s on Happy Endings, a horribly named show that’s hilarious. Happy 30th birthday to Elisha Cuthbert!
