Flyer via Village Learning Place

Nothing goes together quite like spaghetti, disco music and helping your community.

That’s been the right combination since 1998 for the Village Learning Place, the Charles Village-based nonprofit library and community center. Each year, the organization throws a party that, per its page for last year’s Spaghetti Disco, “combines spaghetti with literacy, the Bee-Gees with the ABCs,” to raise money for its programs. Specifically, that includes a spaghetti feast and family-friendly activities from 5:30 to 8 p.m., followed by three hours of old school moves to classic tunes under the shimmery lights of a disco ball.

Peabody Heights Brewing is hosting this year. Guests can leave with a 20th anniversary Spaghetti Disco pint glass, plus the satisfaction of getting to break out their bell bottoms and show they’ve still got it.

Tickets $15 for adults, $8 for kids, sold at the door (online ticketing no longer available). Peabody Heights Brewery, 401 E. 30th Street, 410-467-7837,
