Ginger Explosion

I thought this was some weird event for a mass assembly of redheads. That creeped me out…too much pale skin, freckles, and the smell of SFP 70 for me to handle all at once.

Fortunately for 99% of the world (no I’m not getting political) redheads will not host “Occupy Somerville” on January 28th.

Instead, head to PA’s Lounge for Ginger [Root] Explosion #4 to sample some of Boston’s food trucks and Ginger Cocktails!

Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, Staff Meal, Dosa N Curry, and Mei Mei will all be in attendance.

What: ArtsUnion Ginger Explosion 4 at PA’s Lounge
When: Monday 1/28, 6:30-8:30PM
Where: 345 Somerville Ave, Somerville, MA
Cost: $13

This event will raise money for ArtsUnion, a cultural council designed to engage the public with Somerville’s artistic culture.  ArtsUnion “produces events, markets, and cultural tours that show the cultural and artistic diversity of Union Square”.

Side note/ Thank God: No redheads will be exploded at this event.
