Yeah yeah yeah, it’s Five Things!

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Wednesday, February 27, 2013:

Way, way better than the inferior Regional Strings Orchestra. The Berklee World Strings Orchestra is scheduled to play the Towers at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $15, and for more info, click here.

“Being president is like running a cemetery; you've got a lot of people under you and nobody's listening.” – Bill Clinton. Here are today’s government meetings:

Has the time or date or details of one of your events changed? If you posted the event yourself on our site, then remember – You can always change the details if you’re logged into your Patch account. Failing that, leave a comment on the item in question! The issue is that lately, people have been e-mailing me, and depending on the time of the day, it can take me anywhere from 30 minutes or 30 hours to get to the item, unfortunately. As a result, I encourage you all to be as proactive as possible!

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Dominican Republic National 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).

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.

Everyone agreed that Old Britain was just so done anyway. On this day in 1700, New Britain was discovered. No word on what Lord British thought of this yet.

Congrats on that whole marriage thing by the way, I forgot to send a card! Happy 33rd birthday to Chelsea Clinton.
