Tailgating for charity...?

I hear tailgating is a lot of fun. I've never actually had the chance to do it (UMass Amherst didn't allow it when I attended)... until now.

MetroLacrosse is holding its third annual Winter Tailgate party this Saturday, February 2 at [updated] Vinalia at 101 Arch St in Boston.

Ok, so technically it's not tailgating per say. There are no cars involved. Or trucks. Or trunks. But there is beer (and wine). And sports! You get to wear your favorite team jersey while you enjoy open bar and listen to the Swinging Johnsons, the band famous for its appearances at the Burren in Davis Square. Not to mention that you'll have the chance to win a $7,000 Getaway for Two to Cancun, Mexico! (You remember what a sunny day at a beach is like, right?)

Tickets are $50 ahead of time and all proceeds support MetroLacrosse's programs, which teach underprivileged kids life skills through lacrosse. If tailgating's not your thing, check out volunteer opportunities with MetroLacrosse. You don't need to know lacrosse in order to help!

Me, I'll be in NH skiing... but you can bet your sweet bippy I'd be at this event if I were in town.
