  • 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.

    Since 1993, Cirque Dreams' family-friendly variety extravaganzas have called upon a cast of acrobats, strongmen, and daredevils to wring the oohs and aahs out of audiences with tremendous feats of derring-do. During each themed production, more than 100 performers garbed in dazzling outfits twirl high in the air, contort their bodies into impossible shapes, and solve long division problems to earn uproarious applause from the crowd. At Dream Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida, hundreds of contracted artists from around the world develop their skills and prep for Cirque Dreams performances under the direction of Neil Goldberg and his team of choreographers, contortionists, and designers.

  • 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.

  • RI Haunted House
    The RI Haunted House within Dave & Buster's acquaints patrons with the vibrant world of the undead between action-packed arcade games. Brave voyagers cross the threshold into a ghastly shipyard where phantom pirates lurk around every corner, waiting for their chance to frighten unsuspecting dwellers or politely ask them for spare doubloons. Explorers can gather shaken wits afterward with competitive bouts of racing, dancing, or tax-return filing on one of Dave & Buster's many video games and ticketed redemption games. Be sure to check the hours before attending.
