Amidst cocktails and dancing, 35 to 40 students of all skill sets recreate classic works of art within hours at Drink and Dabble under the tutelage of comedian and RISD graduate Charlie Hall. He supplies classes with artistic gear including a blank 16" x 20" stretched canvas, water-based acrylics, and aprons that protect outfits from paint more effectively than showering in paint-thinner. Charlie selects the evening’s canvas from famous artworks including Vincent van Gogh’s “The Starry Night,” though students can opt to try their own painting instead. He guides his class through every layer step-by-step, circling the room to dispense individual tips. During short breaks, he and his students eat, drink, and make merry along to a soundtrack of party tunes. By class’ end, the acrylics dry into a new version of a priceless canvas that you can take home.

When it came to providing for his family, Leo Rondeau never stopped fighting. He took on an assortment of jobs, from peddling flowers on the street to policing the streets of Woonsocket. After Leo was diagnosed with cancer, his family took up the fight for the man who always fought for them.

To benefit fathers battling the disease, the Rondeau's founded the Fight Like a Dad 5K, the proceeds of which pay for everything from medical expenses to ambulatory services. A cash prize awaits the first woman, man, teen, and kid to cross the certified course's finish line, and trophies honor the top-three in the four aforementioned categories. Those interested in supporting the cause without dashing to the finish can also make a donation or purchase a commemorative Fight Like Dad dog tag.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
