5 Things You Need to Know Today: March 15
Register your dog before April 1 or face a fine.
Our daily morning column, 5 Things You Need to Know, provides you with information that can help you plan your day and give you some fodder for water cooler conversations.
1. Where do you get your green beer and corned beef and cabbage fix on St. Patrick's Day? March 17 is right around the corner and we're wondering where you prefer to celebrate in and around Natick. Take our Patch Readers' Choice poll and let us know your favorites!
2. Ecuador has more than 1,600 species of birds in a country no bigger than the state of Colorado. Bird tour guide Luke Seitz has spent time in Ecuador and now brings his knowledge to the Massachusetts Audubon Broadmoor Wildlife Santuary in Natick. Stop by the sanctuary at 6:30 p.m. for a dinner, followed by a lecture at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the dinner and the lecture are $24 for members and $28 for non-members or just $10 for the lecture.
3. You've got a long day ahead of you and let's face it, by the time you're home from work, cooking dinner is one of the last things you want to do. Instead, head to Sel De La Terre for Chef's Table Dinner at 7 p.m. For $38 per person, you can enjoy a four-course "chef's whim" dinner by Chef Daniel Bojorquez, prepared with seasonal ingredients. Call 508-650-1800 for more information.
4. Many of us have memories from childhood of roaming through our school libraries, the smell of books in the air, searching for the next mystery book or fairy tale to grab our interest. Natick Public Schools are creating a plan for the school libraries in town and are asking parents to take a survey on how their children use the library and its resources. Parents are asked to complete the Online survey by tomorrow, March 16.
5. The deadline to register for dog licenses has passed and those who do not register or renew April 1 could face up to a $100 fine.
