The Southern New England Women’s Expo packs the Twin River Event Center with a female-minded cornucopia of cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, and enlightening over the course of six, pamper-packed hours. Track down treasures and adventures scattered amongst more than 140 booths peopled by exotic exhibitors and constructed from shattered glass ceilings. Though the fall expo schedule has yet to be released, its April iteration included seven cooking demonstrations from accolade-racked chefs, an interactive Zumba class, and three fashion shows espousing trendy threads and the health benefits of strutting to techno music. Like a reputable bingo nights or a disreputable doctor’s office, the Southern New England Women’s expo may be replete with prize giveaways, adding the smell of potential victory to the joy-saturated air. Attendees may turn ladies’ afternoons out into girls’ nights out by indulging in post-expo games at the nearby Twin River Casino (casino visits not covered by today’s Groupon).

The Original Wedding Expo unites local wedding vendors with soon-to-be brides and grooms, presenting a day filled with gowns, cakes, and flowers. Marriage-minded attendees field questions to dozens of merchants fluent in wedding planning and etiquette, settling quandaries over what's appropriate to throw at newlyweds––rice, birdseed, or baseballs. DJs and live bands provide a soundtrack as guests chat with photographers and browse the bridal-gown sale, whose more than 150 dresses showcase the modern and classic styles. At 2:00 p.m., a fashion show exhibits elegant and fun dresses for the entire bridal party, presenting suitable attire for best friends, family members, and over-sentimental mannequins. The expo automatically enters registered attendees into raffles for grand prizes such as a honeymoon, limousine or tuxedo rentals, and a designer wedding cake.

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 a Dad dog tag.
