The Last Word


Your long day of corporate drudgery is over. Get out and enjoy the city! Here are a few ideas to get you started, lovingly picked by Boston Daily.

It’s fashion for a good cause. Kelley for Ellie raises money for the Ellie Fund, which provides support for cancer patients and their families. The event’s namesake is WCVB reporter Kelley Tuthill, who suffered from breast cancer and will be on hand tonight.

There are plenty of philanthropic dining options tonight as well. Taste of the Back Bay brings together some of the neighborhood’s best restaurants to raise money for the Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay. LifeSavor benefits community servings, and shuttles diners to one of 85 restaurants for a meal, then to the Langham hotel for dessert.

Maybe you’ll run into Willy Wonka himself at the LifeSavor afterparty. Gene Wilder signs copies of his new historical novella at the Border’s on Boylston Street.

Suddenly, it’s 1999 and we’re rocking out in our Mom’s Ford Taurus again. Get a dose of nostalgia as geek rockers the Presidents of the United States of America play the Paradise.
