Five Things: Bank Gets Local Award, A Marathon Book, and a 'Firkin'
Five things to know and do in Somerville today.
1) Cambridge Savings Bank Gets Local Award
The Somerville Community Corporation recently gave it's annual Norris Weston Award to Cambridge Savings Bank, according to an announcement from the bank. The award recognizes "funders who excel in the advancement of the organization’s mission," according to the announcement.
2) "Overthinking the Marathon" Book Release Run
Here's what the listing says: "Ray Charbonneau will have copies of his new book, Overthinking the Marathon, available at Casey's after the Somerville Road Runners' weekly Thursday Night 4-mile run. The run is free—books are only $14.99." It's at Casey's at 7:15 p.m.
3) Local Cask Ale Tapping
The listing says, "We are blessed in New England to have so many awesome breweries, so each Thursday night we celebrate them by putting on a firkin of a locally brewed cask ale." I wasn't sure if I should edit out the word "firkin" or not. It doesn't sound family friendly. Anyway, the firkin will be at Olde Magoun's Saloon at 6 p.m.
4) Development in Hard Times
From the listing: "Join us for lectures by Frances Stewart and Jeremy Adelman, the author of the forthcoming biography 'Worldly Philosopher: The Odyssey of Albert O. Hirschman.'" It's at 3:30 p.m. in the Coolidge Room of Ballou Hall, Tufts University.
Snowy and windy today, with a highs around 35, but it doesn't sound like there will be much snow accumulation.
