Welcome to “5 Things,” your daily resource for community events, happenings in town and other little tidbits of information. Here are five things you need to know on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
1. Bullying: October is Bully Awareness and Prevention Month and at Holten-Richmond Middle School on Wednesday there will be a “Unity Luncheon Day” where teachers will join students at lunchtime to encourage an informal discussion about bullying.
2. Congressional Debate: U.S. Rep. John Tierney (D-Salem) and Republican Congressional candidate Richard Tisei of Wakefield are both coming to Danvers High School on Wednesday night for a debate. Libertarian Daniel Fishman of Beverly will join them. The event, sponsored by the Salem News and Jewish Journal, starts at 7 p.m. The event is open to the public and will be seated on a first come, first served basis in the 600-seat auditorium.
3. Lunch: If you are looking for a new option for lunch locally, you now have one at with The Scholar’s Den, which opens on Wednesday. The four-course lunches are offered for $5 and are served by students in North Shore Community College's Culinary Arts program at Berry Hall on the Essex Agricultural High School Campus on Route 62. The lunches will be served Wednesdays and Thursdays starting Wednesday and running through Dec. 12. Reservations are required for one of the two seating times – 11 or 11:45 a.m. – by calling 978-762-4000, x1538.
4. Pizza: Prince Pizza has always been on the southbound side of Route 1 in Saugus. But starting today, if you’re headed home from Boston on Route 1 you can still make a quick stop without pulling a U-turn. Prince plans to open “Prince to Go” in the former location of Karl's Sausage Kitchen, which has moved to Peabody.
5. Kitchen: If you plan to attend this Saturday’s Heart of the Home Kitchen Tour, which features top kitchen across the North Shore and is sponsored by Wenham Museum, you can grab your tickets on Wednesday and save $5. The tour starts at 11 a.m. and includes tours of nine kitchens in Beverly Farms, Boxford, Hamilton, Wenham, Ipswich and Manchester By-the-Sea. Tickets will be $23 at the door but are $18 for the museum’s non-members through Wednesday.
