Each month we collect and search for events happening in Hartford, but there comes a time when a relationship feels like the give and take is not balanced. So, we decided for February to only publish events that were sent in. If this list looks sparse, that is why. It shows how much is sought out, rather than submitted.
If you want your organization’s events posted in the future, send them to email@example.com by the 25th of each month. For instance, if you have an event in March, get that info to us by February 25.
- The Other Son screens at the Wadsworth Atheneum today at 2. This film, presented with Connecticut Council for Interreligious Understanding, Inc., is about two men — one Israeli, one Palestinian — who were accidentally switched at birth. $9 general admission.
- The Hartford Jazz Society, WWUH 91.3FM, and Hartford Public Library present another afternoon of music. The Baby Grand Jazz series is sponsored by the Charles H. Kaman Charitable Foundation. What this means? You can show up at the Hartford Public Library at 3 today and enjoy an hour of music by Jolie Rocke Brown without any admission fee. Show up early to claim your seat.
- Our Balls Are Inflated at the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective. Doors open at 6p.m. This is a community viewing of the Super Bowl. They say, “Not a football fan? Come anyway. Watch Idina Menzel perform the National Anthem, John Legend will sing and Katy Perry and Lenny Kravitz do the half time show, and of course, all those commercials that people will be talking about for days afterwards.” There will be some snacks and soda provided. Visitors are welcome to bring own food/drink, but no alcoholic beverages. The HGLHC is located at 1841 Broad Street. Continue reading 'February 2015 Events'»
