Five Things You Need to Know Today: August 23
Microsoft is opening a new store, and there's ice cream and music. Coincidentally, it's the anniversary of an earthquake.
1. A bit more cloud cover than yesterday, but similar weather otherwise. 87ºF highs, and mostly sunny by day, with a partly cloudy evening and a 64ºF evening, so says the National Weather Service.
2. A couple of buildings in Brookline were evacuated this time last year, but the Washington Monument May Never Be the Same. On this date just a year ago, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake occurred in Mineral, Va. It cracked the Washington Monument in D.C., and moved up the coast to Beacon Street.
3. If you're reading Patch on Windows right now, then maybe you're due for an upgrade. Fortuantely, the Prudential Center is opening a Microsoft Store. And, there's a Grand Opening today! Store hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
4. Are you, by chance, Fed Up With Transportation Options for Seniors? Well, that happens to be the subject of Goddard House Assisted Living's dinner and talk tonight. There is another option, and there is more information at the talk. Any questions, or to RSVP, call 617-731-8500 x 105 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
5. We all scream for Ice Cream (and Music). It's okay to do. Well, tonight, 6 p.m., at Larz Anderson Auto Museum, ice cream is on "The Brookline Community Foundation" and the "I'm Still Here Foundation." It's free, but they'd like you to RSVP to Dee Brenner at email@example.com
