“Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to Hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.” – Winston S. Churchill. Here are today’s government meetings:

“Figure skating is an unlikely Olympic event but its good television. It’s sort of a combination of gymnastics and ballet. A little sexy too, which doesn’t hurt.” – Andy Rooney. It’s not quite figure skating, but there is public skate today at the Boss Ice Arena from noon to 2 p.m. For rates and more information, click here.
Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s National Tango Day in Buenos Aires. 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).

You were awesome in True Grit, and holy smokes, you’re still only 16? Happy birthday to Hailee Steinfeld! And like I said, True Grit is a pretty good remake, right on par with the original, and Steinfeld’s acting really steals the show, along with Jeff Bridges.
