Hi everybody — starting with August 13 2018, we’re trying out a new format for Ladies Looking Ahead!
All of your favorites are right where we left ’em, as we’re still highlighting famous birthdays, national food days, official and semi-official holidays and the best women’s events near you.
We believe this new format will bring a highly-focused and bite-sized approach to the way events for women are shared and discovered.

“I have always believed that your face is a mirror to your nature.” —Sridevi
Sridevi may just be the most popular Indian film star of all time.
Sadly, Sridevi passed away earlier this year from what was ruled as an accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub in Dubai, yet her memory burns brightly through various tributes and homages from family, friends, fans and political leaders.
Looking to acquaint yourself with Sridevi’s acting?

August 13 is National Prosecco Day!
Enjoy this versatile Italian white wine “spumante” (sparkling), “frizzante” (semi-sparkiling) or tranquillo (flat), the former of which makes for an exquisite alternative to Champagne and is the key ingredient in the Bellini and Spritz cocktails.
As the wine doesn’t go through a second fermentation in the bottle like many of its counterparts, it is always best served young (within 3-7 years of vintage).
DIY Fun: Try substituting Prosecco for Champagne in your next Mimosa!
Each year Rhode Island celebrates Victory Day (VJ Day) on the second Monday in August.
This State Holiday commemorates the end of World War II, immediately following the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in early August 1945.
If you’ll be in Rhode Island on Victory Day, chances are you won’t be going to school or the library, or possibly even the bank as municipal and state offices are officially closed for the State Holiday.
