A quick look at five things to see, do and know today in Lexington.
1. Flatbread Pizza Night to benefit Maria Hastings PTA: Eat in or take out, but if you're eating pizza tonight do it at the Bedford Flatbread Pizza, because each pizza sold after 5 p.m. the Hastings PTA will receive a portion of the cost -- and they use those funds to support various enrichment programs for students, families and staff.
