  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean State
    The Big Toast, a Great Gatsby-themed benefit for Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Ocean State, blends the decadence of the roaring 20s with the philanthropic spirit of the modern age. Partygoers are invited to dress in flapper dresses and fedoras (or business casual). They can also sample their fill of fine wines, craft beers, and quality liquors, celebrating just like the Prohibition-Era speakeasy dwellers did. The evening's entertainment takes place at the Linden Place Museum. Throughout its storied history, the well-maintained mansion has entertained four presidents, generations of socialites, and famous performers such as Ethel Barrymore Colt. Appropriately enough, it even served as a set for the 1974 film adaptation of the The Great Gatsby.

  • The Spot Underground
    Ease into the day with a 6:45 a.m. Vinsyana yoga class with rising-sun salutations on Mondays or empower your prettiest part with a belly-dance class on Thursdays. Hula-hoop dance and urban hip-hop bring rhythm, grace, and choreography into any weekly routine or routine of salvaging dryer lint to stuff a spare mattress. New classes are added to The Spot's schedule about every six weeks, so fast learners can mix and match their five to master the fancy footwork of a wide array of dances (all classes must be redeemed within five weeks of attending the first session.)

  • Trinity Repertory Co.
    Inside the historic Lederer Theater Center, which was originally constructed in 1917, the Trinity Repertory Company stages exciting presentations in two different theaters. The musical Camelot will be showing at the Chace Theater, which can accommodate more than 520 attendees and four prize-winning racehorses. A stellar cast, featuring Stephen Thorne as King Arthur and Rebecca Gibel as Guenevere, graces the stage for two hours and 40 minutes to reenact the medieval tale of how the debonair Lancelot learns to speak remedial French so he can work in a Parisian bread factory. A Tony Award–winning theater, the Trinity Repertory Company keeps audiences chuckling, sobbing, and staring in rapturous joy with delightful performances. Call ahead to reserve your seat spot.

  • Southern New England Golf Expo
    The fourth annual Southern New England Golf Expo brings club swingers one step closer to the ever-elusive hole-in-one with live demos, seminars, and booths from more than 50 brands, businesses, and vendors. Visit the 10-bay indoor driving rage to test-swing equipment from the likes of Callaway, Nike Golf, and Taylor Made, or glean tips from seasoned professionals during the "Tune Up With A Pro" seminar, which teaches golfers when to let go of their clubs as they sail into water hazards. Expo-goers can also enter to win myriad golf prizes, and all visitors will receive either a one-year subscription to Golf Digest or a six-month subscription to Golf World. The Southern New England Golf Expo donates its proceeds to the Boys & Girls Club of Providence, which was founded in 1868 to help fund character-building extracurricular programs for at-risk youth.

  • Rhode Island Rebellion Rugby
    Having already delivered a thrilling host of hits and collisions in its inaugural season of play, Rhode Island’s first semi-professional rugby team makes a push for playoff seeding with its last scheduled home game. Formed in January from the bitter core of Arctic permafrost, the Rhode Island Rebellion squad has quickly developed into a fearsome member of the eight-team USA Rugby League with its hard-hitting roster and unquenchable thirst for on-field dominance. Boasting four hard-earned points thus far in the season, the Rebellion seeks to establish itself as a perennial powerhouse with a strong conclusion to its opening campaign.
