Friday, Feb. 6

COLD! If you are reading this and it’s before 7 a.m., the temperature is probably around zero degrees, not counting wind chill. All is not lost – the high is to be 21 today – but this is harsh! Hat, check. Gloves, check. Scarf, check. Warm coat, check. Plane tickets to some place warm … check?

The Savory Grape goes red: In honor of National Wear Red Day – which is meant to focus on the high rate of heart disease in women – the Savory Grape is going red today between 5 and 8 p.m. A portion of red wine sales sold during the “red out” will be donated to the Southern New England chapter of the American Heart Association.

Saturday, Feb. 7

‘Frozen’ Sing-a-long: You don’t have to sing along alone at home (or in the car!). Come on over to the Odeum, which is featuring two sing-a-long showings of “Frozen,” and the Snow Sisters will be there too. Find out more here. SOLD OUT – but you can buy tickets to a March 7 show here.

Sunday, Feb. 8
