A three-level home in a converted Union Square church is the setting for an Irish heritage party on Friday. All are welcome.
Here are two reasons you might want to show up at 1 Summer St. Friday night: One: You're the sort of person who likes to check out cool real estate, especially when the real estate in question is a fancy three-level apartment in a converted Union Square church. Two: You'd like to help the Somerville Museum. I suppose there's also a third reason: It's St. Patrick's Day weekend, and the party at 1 Summer St. will celebrate Somerville's Irish heritage with a keg of Guinness, tons of food from local restaurants, beer samples from Pretty Things and Somerville Brewing Company, wine, root beer from Tower Root Beer, and live Irish music. Also, it starts at 5:30 p.m. and goes until 8 p.m., so it's the sort of thing you can do after work and before …

The Chaikin family, which lost their apartment to fire, has been touched by the support they've received from friends and from their daughter's preschool community.
When a fire struck their Montrose Street apartment in the middle of the night on Nov. 14, a week and a half before Thanksgiving, the Chaikin family was suddenly without a home. "We have a baby and a toddler and basically everything is lost," said MaryCat Chaikin, describing the incident. The family—including MaryCat's husband, Paul, their 3-year-old daughter, Katie, their infant son, Arlo, and their 11-year-old dog, Henry—made it out of the apartment without injury, and without any of their belongings. It's what's happened after the fire, however, that has left MaryCat feeling "uplifted." Friends pitched in to help out, offering the family a place to stay, and Katie's preschool community has started a donation drive to help the family get …

Somerville defeated Jamaica Plain in a dance-off competition. The event raised funds for Girls Rock Camp Boston.
Nothing settles a rivalry like a good, ole fashioned dance-off. Although the trash talk flowed freely, everyone enjoyed themselves at the JP vs. Somerville Dance-off Sunday night at the Good Life in downtown Boston. The JP team put up a good fight, but in the end, the judges named Somerville the winner. The event's proceeds benefitted Girls Rock Camp Boston, a non-profit that works to develop self esteem in young women through music and performance education.
