5 THINGS: Friday! It’s Friday!

Hey, it’s Friday! Someone should make a song about that.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, January 11, 2013:

“I don’t like spam!” Auditions for Monty Python’s Spamalot are at 11 a.m. at the Courthouse Center for the Arts.

See a Grammy-nominated band at the Towers tonight! The Louisiana band Feufollet brings their Cajun style to the Towers for a 7:30 p.m. show. Admission starts at $15.

Want to see the Boston Celtics play? The Neighborhood Guild is planning a trip for Feb. 10, when the Celtics play the Denver Nuggets. The final payment deadline is Jan. 25, but the tickets (39 of them) are first come, first served. For more info, click here.

Register for South Kingstown Little League or Softball! Want to play Little League this year? Cool, click here! Is slow pitch softball more your speed? Cool, click here! Both leagues offer early bird specials if you register in January instead of February, so don’t dawdle!

Has the time or date or details of one of your events changed? If you posted the event yourself on our site, then remember – You can always change the details if you’re logged into your Patch account. Failing that, leave a comment on the item in question! The issue is that lately, people have been e-mailing me, and depending on the time of the day, it can take me anywhere from 30 minutes or 30 hours to get to the item, unfortunately. As a result, I encourage you all to be as proactive as possible!

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that Republic Day in Albania. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).

Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!

The jackpot was some figgy pudding, a couple scones and five pounds. On this day in 1569, the first recorded lottery was held in England.

Great name, semi-success career. Happy 41st birthday to Amanda Peet! She DOES have a great name, so that’s cool, although her film career has been kind of up-and-down. She’s been in more than 50 films from 1995 to 2012, yet her “biggest” movie was the schlocky action flick 2012.
