Happy Weekend!

As the person who has spoken only of my garden and its bounty all summer, I am highly tuned to the weather right now. It is supposed to rain all day Saturday, and I am FOR IT, and I apologize to all of the folks trying to have safe, responsible events outdoors that day.

That said, I have a couple non-tomato-related items I’d love to check off of my list this weekend, like:

  1. Hit up Little Black Dress’s 6th-anniversary event (runs Thurs-Sat)
  2. Donate blood (look for drives near you)
  3. Visit The Midtown Scholar on Saturday for Independent Bookstore Day — outdoor sidewalk sale
  4. Hunting down Tröegs Trail Day because I love hoppy pilsners. Haze heads should hit up ABC for their latest new release — a hazy IPA! 

Below are ample options for your weekend, whether you’re laying low (there is no shame in the stay home game!) or venturing out. But if the latter, mask up and be nice!

Oh hey, are you on the email list? In addition to getting this weekly update loaded with things to do each weekend directly in your inbox, I load it with a bunch of other fresh, original content. Sign-up here. I also recommend following me on IG.

Weekend Recs

  1. Grab some local brews from Boneshire Brew Works, Hemauer Brewing, Appalachian Brewing Co. or Tattered Flag.
  2. Pick up HOLLA Spirits at your local state store — OR, if you’re lazy like me, just order online and have it shipped!
  3. Stock up at R.G. Hummer’s in the Broad Street Market
  4. Order some great takeout, maybe a BBQ feast for the backyard from MoMo’s
  5. Try something new: Catch The Obstructed View with Open Stage TONIGHT
  6. Binge episodes of Poured in PA: The Series FREE on YouTube!
  7. Browse some new gems at Meeka Fine Jewelry.
  8. Make your Fall Haul at Little Black Dress’s 6th Anniversary Event.

COVID-19 Disclaimer: As always, please click through the links or call ahead to get the most up-to-date information about venues and/or events below. It should also go without saying, but I’ll say it — Mask up, follow the rules, and be nice. And tip extra!
