Here are the (more than) Five Things for Saturday, November 10, 2012:
“We lost because we didn’t win.” – Ronaldo. Two big sports games today, and info on both can be found here.
- Narragansett boys’ soccer plays for a Division II title at Rhode Island College at 2 p.m. against the Classical Purple.
- South Kingstown girls’ soccer plays against La Salle at 2 p.m. at East Greenwich High School. The winner will play for a state championship on Tuesday.
Tour some open houses! Check out our weekly open house column here.
Learn about Desert Roots. Author Mitra Shavarini will speak about her new book at 2 p.m. at Peace Dale Library. The chat is free. Will you be on Aquidneck Island around that time instead? Well, there is another author’s chat in Newport at that same time.
Mmm, time to eat pasta to support wrestling, instead of wrestling for pasta. The Mettatuxet Yacht Club is hosting a pasta night at 6 p.m. The cost is $10.
Support Habitat for Humanity! There is a fundraiser for the organization at the South Kingstown Elks Lodge from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Habitat for Humanity is building a home for a local veteran.
Dosey doe, maybe? Some English country dancing will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the South Kingstown Land Trust Barn.
Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Cry of Independence Day in Panama. 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).
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.
“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” – Bob Ross. The Courthouse Center for the Arts is looking for art submissions for a December show. For more information, 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!
Maybe, possibly not actually cursed. On this day in 1958, the Hope Diamond was donated to the Smithsonian.
Badonkadonk. Happy 44th birthday to Tracy Morgan!
