More than 200 pieces (including photos/video/audio) are on display, and there will be multiple live performances over the next couple months.

Several artists associated with local Mobius Group will do some wild and wacky -- err, I mean, give thought-provoking and sublime displays of their work...

"Celebration of the 203rd Birthday of Edgar Allan Poe"
at Boston Room, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

The Edgar Allan Poe Foundation of Boston is sponsoring a birthday for America's original master of macabre who grew up a few blocks away near Boston Common.

Speakers will include Prof. Paul Lewis, Boston's preeminent Poe scholar who curated the BPL's exhibit a couple years ago.

Project manager Jean Mineo will present the 3 top proposals for the Edgar Allan Poe Square Public Art Project and ask for your feedback.

You may even win a prize during the Poe-themed trivia game, and there's a rumor that Mr. Poe (or a close facsimile) will show up.

THUR 1/19

SkeeNation Boston: Season II Kickoff Tourney
at The Greatest Bar, 3rd Fl, 262 Friend St, Boston (near North Station)
FREE / 21+

There is little luck at the upper echelon of skeeball. That said... With a little luck, you and a partner could walk away from this shindig with a pair of Celtics tickets.

The costs to register for the 8-week season wasn't readily available, but you can compete tonight for free -- and there's no obligation to show up again.

Judging from last season's teams, it seems to be a healthy but casual sort of competitiveness...
