The Insiders: An Evening En Blanc and a day of rocks (oops, we mean minerals!)
Concord’s been home to flash mobs, cash mobs and scores of other awesome spontaneous come-togethers recently. Today, there’s another event in the same vein – but with an original twist! Evening En Blanc is a fundraising event for Concord Hospital’s Family Health Centers. It’s a fun picnic in the park at which all the attendees will be clad entirely in white. Sounds cool enough as is, but get this – the location is a secret until two hours before the event! At 4 p.m. today, the location will be announced on Concord Hospital’s Facebook page and website (concordhospital.org). At that point, diners will scramble to get themselves (and their picnic baskets) to the spot by 6 p.m. for an evening of dining, dancing and entertainment. Tickets are $45; you can get them and more information at giveto.concordhospital.org.

Breaking Bad’s Hank Schrader has been locked in a constant hunt for Heisenberg the past few years, but we think he would take the time out of his busy DEA schedule and stop by Everett Arena today for the annual Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show (whatever you do, do not call them rocks). See all the geodes you can shake a geode at and take something home for yourself! Entry is $5; kids 12 and under are free with adult supervision. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow. For more information, visit capital.questblue.com.
