Boston is a great city. We're under an ungodly amount of snow right now but still- a great city. The Nightcap is a celebration of that greatness, a chance for visitors (like those in town for the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, for example) and residents alike to hang out with people from across our different neighborhoods and industries. And by "hang out" we mean "challenge to a game of low-stakes Connect Four while drinking and grooving to DJ Mixmaster Mully."
This year's Nightcap is happening Friday, February 27 at District Hall. Tickets are $10 and proceeds benefit the Rock On Foundation. The Connect Four tournament kicks off at 8 PM (arrive on-time to play as space is limited and there are bragging rights to be had). The top three finishers will receive prizes from awesome local companies like Cuppow. Think you're not that great at Connect Four? Here's how to win.
So join us for some friendly competition, music, and general debauchery. We hope to see you there!
About the Rock On Foundation
The Rock On Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that supports community athletic and artistic initiatives. Since its creation in early 2013, Rock On has operated events such as an NBA Three-Point Contest viewing party, Sneakers and Speakers SXSW music showcase in Austin (TX), Sneakers and Speakers summer benefit concert in Portsmouth (NH), the Mid-Summer Classic high school basketball tournament in Concord (NH), the Okkervil River ACL After Show in Austin (TX), and, most recently the Alt-Star Party at NYC's Bowery Ballroom.
Like The Nightcap, the Rock On Foundation’s unique events inspire and enhance the community with proceeds going to local nonprofit organizations that support community artistic and/or athletic endeavors. To date, Rock On has distributed funds in support of its mission to renovate public basketball courts, provide financial aid for underprivileged youth interested in art and music lessons, assist with the development of new community art programs, provide financial aid for at-risk youth to attend life skills basketball camps, and help fund a Police Activities youth basketball league.
