Spring is just 19 days away with the Vernal Equinox on 3/20. Perhaps the days ahead will feel more spring-y when we wind the clock hands forward on 3/9? Let's hope so! In the meantime, we are lucky to have a full slate of music and events this month to keep up our spirits as we watch for the popping of daffodils and prepare for Newport's 58th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on 3/15. Take some time to enjoy... and hang in there, winter can't last forever, can it? 

 and if you please...

Pretend to be Irish Newport Irish Heritage hosts numerous events this month highlighted by 58th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and 8th Annual Family Celebration on 3/15, rain or shine.

For my running friends, the Tour de Patrick includes three road races, you can choose to run just one or run 'em all. The Irish 5K starts at 11am this morning (3/1) in Pawtucket (better get a move on!), the St. Pat's 5K is held in Providence on 3/8, prior to Providence St. Patrick's Day parade and the Guiness Celtic 5K is on 3/9. Visit the Tour de Patrick website for more information and registration.

American Hustle
You can celebrate the Oscars at the Jane Picken's Theater on Sunday evening (3/2), starting with red carpet arrivals followed by the big show on the big screen! Gather with your neighbors to watch while enjoying appetizers, desserts and a cash bar. Attire is as glamorous or as casual as you like, admission is just $15. JPT has many fine films in rotation this month including Gloria and American Hustle through 3/6 and Invisible Woman starting on 3/7 to name a few. Are you (like me) Missing Downton Abbey yet? Perhaps you'll find consolation in a British Dessert Tasting and the Season 2 Premiere of Mr. Selfridge on 3/30?
