Quick Picks 11/14 - How To Cure SAD

by Rachel Solomon on behalf of The Network / November 15, 2011

Now that it’s getting dark at 4pm, we all run the risk of developing SAD. You know the symptoms:  binge eating, sleeping at your desk, wasting your life 'til spring. We at Quick Picks will help you fight it. Check out these SAD antidotes…

Forget hibernation; winter is a time for innovation. Have an idea for a social venture? Get the support you need to grow it with CJP’s 2012 PresenTense Boston Fellowship. As a fellow, you’ll receive access to business seminars, networks, and tools to help launch your venture. Check out what some past fellows have accomplished:   a girls’ mentorship group, an online Judaica store, and a Boston-Haifa legal partnership!  Already part of a Jewish organization but have an idea to innovate it? Become an intrapreneur like 2011 fellow Dan Brosgol. Applications are due a week from today, Monday Nov. 21.

Come feel ultra-literate for free this Tuesday as Prism presents The Narrative Thread:Tales of Exodus and Exile. Cozy up at Middlesex Lounge for a reading from three of Boston's hottest debut novelists: William Giraldi, Vanessa Diffenbaugh, and Stuart Nadler. The event is free but make sure to pre-reg here.

And round out the week BIG’s BIGgest Israeli Bar Night this Wednesday at The Greatest Bar.
