    Church got a head start on feast season with Supper Y'All, a down-home, cafeteria-style meat-and-three dinner featuring eats from two local chefs with Southern roots, Jade Taylor of Island Creek Oyster Bar and Jason Cheek of Toro.

    It was apropos that BLIZZARD, Boston Ski & Sports Club's annual ski-season kickoff party, just happened to coincide with Boston's very first fall snowstorm. Luckily, if anyone's equipped to party through inclement conditions, it's a bunch of skiers and riders. They packed into Royale to throw back "ski shots," browse the many vendors, and fill out raffle tickets for a slew of rad prizes (including a trip for two to Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia).

    Scoop NYC's Newbury Street outpost attracted Boston's best dressed as they turned out to fete the store's first year in town. Guests joined hostess Hayley Maybury, founder of Papercut magazine, to shop for a good cause: a portion of the evening's sales benefited the country's oldest child-welfare agency, the Home for Little Wanderers, whose services help ensure healthy development for local kids at risk.

    The mainstream media is a dark place for teen girls, but Rookie - an online mag started by 16-year-old blogger Tavi Gevinson last year - is changing that, with smart, feminist musings on pop culture, teen issues, DIY fashion, and more. It's grown so popular with a certain niche of teens and twentysomethings that meetups have been popping up around the world, allowing readers to talk feminism, make zines and flower crowns, and profess their love for Rookie.

    At the annual industry party hosted by Photo Nights Boston - a nonprofit collective of New England photogs and artists - a diverse mix of creative types mingled freely in Quixote's open, minimalist space in Allston. Distinguished-looking older folks chatted by the well-stocked hors d'oeuvres spread while inked-up twentysomethings cruised the bar and tried out an extravagant photo booth designed to resemble a 1920s boudoir (a photo-event photo booth - so meta!).

    At October's installment of the ICA's First Fridays series, attendees watched a runway show inspired by the wild colors and patterns of Brazilian artists Os Gêmeos, followed by a guided tour of their exhibition.

    At the Emerging Trends, an event that showcases burgeoning and yet-undiscovered talent during Boston Fashion Week each year, an eclectic crowd mixed, mingled, and guzzled free Vitamin Water, browsing the vendor stands around the runway and waiting for the 11-designer show to begin. Miss New Hampshire posed for photos, her crown glittering, while sleek young girls in stilettos air-kissed friends, hip urbanites with streaked hair and studded leather chatted quietly, suburban-mom types in their Saturday-night finest clucked over accessories tables, and starch-shirted college-age dudes and their girlfriends vamped for photo ops at the pop-up red-carpet area.

    After the local premiere of Knuckleball!, the new doc that follows the corkscrewing career paths of former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield and current Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey, a crowd gathered at the Royal Rooters Club inside an eerily empty Fenway Park.
