Join me at Cool Beans at noon, or check out these other wonderful events this weekend.
Here are the Five Things for Friday, February 24, 2012, and the two weekend days: Cawfee chat. I’ll be hosting a low-key event today, and by “hosting” I mean “sitting around at a local coffee place.” I’ll be at Cool Beans at noon, and sticking around until 1 p.m. at the least. Feel free to swing by and discuss the important (or not so important) news of the day. (Next week will be Coffee Connection, and if you have any other suggestions for me, feel free to send them to Stephen.firstname.lastname@example.org.) Take me down to the Paradise City Park where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. Tonight is the opening night for the Contemporary Theater Company’s Paradise Park at the Towers.

It seems like ancient history, when Ice Cube was making rap instead of crap family movies. Hopefully though, today will be a good day for you.
Here are the Five Things for Friday, February 17, 2012, along with some weekend events: A second chance at a polar plunge (and a buffet-style dinner from George’s).

Lots of tasty things are going on this weekend. (The Crash Test Dummies would be envious of this article.)
Here are the Five Things for Friday, February 3, 2012, and the weekend: Mmm, pasta! I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but running a hockey program sure is expensive. You essentially have to book ice time at rinks across the state, never mind all of the various equipment you need to buy. So, if you’re looking to pitch in, and want to fill up your stomach in the process, check out the hockey team’s pasta dinner tonight at the Narragansett Community Center. The doors open at 6 p.m., and the cost is $10. There are a variety of raffles being held as well, with the top prize $200 cash. Mmm, Narragansett sports! The girls’ basketball team (12-3, 10-1 Division II-South) will look to rebound (ha ha, get it?) from their first Division II loss of…

In action Thursday and Friday, both the boys’ and the girls’ basketball teams protect home court.
NARRAGANSETT – Thanks to an impressive defensive effort in the final eight minutes, the Narragansett boys’ basketball team turned a tight game into an easy victory, 55-41, against the Tolman Tigers on Thursday night. It was a much-needed win for the Mariners (6-7, 4-5 Division II-South) against Tolman (6-5, 4-5 Division II-Central), as they look to improve their seed for the state tournament from its current rank in the 20s. “It was a big win,” Narragansett head coach David Gee said. “We needed to beat a good team.” It was the Mariners’ first win in league play against a team with a .500 record. Narragansett has taken care of business against the division’s weaker opponents, beating Scituate, Chariho and Ponaganset each by more than 20 …

South Kingstown scores 10 unanswered goals in a romp against Narragansett on Wednesday night.
KINGSTON – During a hard fought first period, the Narragansett Mariners boys’ hockey team took a 1-0 lead after about 10:45 worth of play. Junior Robert Mitchell finished a pass from junior Andrew Morvan. Unfortunately for Narragansett, the Rebels would score the next 10 goals Wednesday night en route to a 10-1 victory at the Boss Ice Arena at the University of Rhode Island. South Kingstown (2-3-2, 2-3-2 Division II-South) took the lead in a six-second span before the end of the first period. Senior T.J. Lynch finished a rebound chance setup by Scott Campbell and David Reilly at 14:05. The Rebels won the ensuing faceoff, and Lynch streaked up the ice to finish on another goal, six seconds later, with Reilly picking up another assist. South…

Check out these Five Things... or else. (not really.)
Here are the Five Things for Wednesday, January 11, 2012: Wow, there are a lot of things going on at local libraries! Seriously, I could have made this whole article about events at Maury Loontjens in Narragansett. They have three events planned for today – preschool storytime at 10:30 a.m., the afternoon book club with the novel A Regular Guy at 1 p.m., and another event entitled “Get ready for kindergarten camp!” at 6:30 p.m. All three events are free.

Coming off its second win of the season, the girls' ice hockey co-op with look for a third against North Smithfield 6:30 p.m. at the Boss Ice Arena in Kingston. …
