Roxy's Grilled Cheese in Allston played host to a Ms. Pac-Man tournamentWednesday night to raise funds for the upcoming Boston Ladyfest. Attendees were able to munch on Roxy's addictivelygooey creations (we like the Mighty Rib Melt — with fontina and braised short ribs) while putting their Ms. Pac-Man skills to the test. Fifteen-percent of food sales (plus, Ms. Pac-Man funds) were donated toward the upcoming Ladyfest.

The second annual eventwill take place April 14-16 at the Cambridge YMCA, with spillover funding going toward Girls Rock Campaign Boston and Rosie’s Place. (Most proceeds will go toward the venue/event costs.) The three-day extravaganza will feature live concerts, DIY events, workshops, guest speakers and film screenings — all in an effort to create an inclusive, safe, positive environment to support the lady-identifiedmusicians and artists of the area. It's one of several in the annual movement to produceLadyfestsevents across the country.
