Five Things: 'Fiddler,' Fiction, Farmers & Phil
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Feb 2.
Groundhog Day: I love the movie, but think the whole groundhog thing is pretty silly. Still, my guess is Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow this morning – it's going to be a cold day and somehow I think that's a bad omen.
Fiddler on the Roof @ EGHS: The production finishes its run today with two performances, at 1 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door. It’s a great show!
Story Hour at Symposium Books: Children (and their adults) are invited to Story Hour at Symposium Books . Every week they pick a new story and read it to the kids with animal crackers and fun. Favorite stories are "No Matter What" and "Jungle Explorer." Come early and help pick the story, and better yet, there is a 10 percent additional discount on everything in the store during story hour! 11:30 a.m.
Coastal Growers Winter Farmers Market: The Winter Farmers Market in North Kingstown features many vendors from the EG Farmers Market as well as some others. Miss your Tallulah’s Tacos? You can pick some up at the winter market! You can also pick up produce, meat, baked goods and artisan goods. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lafayette Mill at 650 Ten Rod Road in North Kingstown.
Avenger Home Action: Tonight night (Sat.!) there’s “near-home” action when the Boys Hockey team meets Johnston-North Providence at Thayer Arena in nearby Warwick. To check out all the Avenger action, click here for the Booster Club’s great website.
