Five Things: Famous Tenor to Perform in South End Saturday

Today is Friday, Feb. 17. Here are five things you need to know today:

1. After some morning rain, the sun is supposed to peak out around noon and shine by 3 p.m. Temperatures could hit 50 degrees.

2. Ronan Tynan is probably best known for singing “God Bless America” at New York Yankees games, but don’t hold that against him – he also sang the National Anthem at the New England Patriots 45-10 playoff win over the Denver Broncos on Jan. 14, (in a Gronk jersey!). The Irish tenor will perform a benefit concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, in the South End’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross. Tickets are $25. Complete details.

3. Chick-fil-A is in talks with Northeastern University to open a franchise in the school’s student center, according to the school’s student newspaper, but not without controversy. Let us know what you think.

4. Are you a South End foodie? If so, you’ll be very interested in South End Patch’s Kathrin Havrilla’s new column. If not, you’ll read it and wish you were.

5. Boston Pride is now accepting nominations for marshals for its 42nd annual Boston Pride Parade on Saturday, June 9. Nominations close Friday, Feb. 24. Complete details.
