Five Things to Know Today: Tue, Jan 18
Network at Sonsie, hit the books, browse photos from Beer Summit, get your flu shot, and pass the Brie.
1. Swing by Sonsie after work, and network with new local professionals. The free event is hosted by the Back Bay Association, and runs from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. Oh, and the pizza's on Sonsie. But bring money for the cash bar. And be sure to RSVP.
2. What do the books The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown, and Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell, have in common? They both topped the Boston Public Library's list of the 10 most popular fiction and non-fiction books of 2010. If you like to read, this one's for you.
3. Raise your glass to the many merrymakers who sampled hundreds of different brews this weekend during the Beer Summit's Winter Jubilee at the Park Plaza Castle. In case you missed the revelry, you can still live vicariously through the story and photo gallery. And don't worry, there's another one in April.
4. Flu season will soon rear it's pounding, achy head. Your best protection is to get a shot -- and sooner rather than later. The virus is known to peak in January, February and March. And the latest vaccine, which protects against three strains of flu -- including H1N1 -- is still available at most doctor's offices and clinics. Read more here.
5. From Brie to Bourgogne, the French know their cheese. Thankfully, you can too. L'Espalier's monthly tasting features a "Fervently French" theme. For $68 per person, the casual evening features a three-course dinner paired with wine, and a grand cheese tasting with musical entertainment. The night starts at 7 p.m.
