JJ Sheffer: I’ll be spending this weekend at the office working on planning some upcoming special events. Looking forward to calling it a day on Saturday and walking over to Tutoni’s for dinner. They source their ingredients locally, and their seasonal menu includes a wintertime version of their Rettland Farm pork loin that’s some of the best comfort food I can imagine when the weather is this cold and gray. They’ve also got a brussels sprouts dish on their small plates menu that comes in a large enough portion for sharing, though you may not want to – it’s got crispy bits of pork belly and it’s finished with a sweep of spicy mayo.
Robert Godfrey: It looks like my wine events are kicking in. On Friday I am going to a wine tasting at the Wine and Spirits store on Eastern Blvd from 4 to 6 p.m. for an organic wine tasting. They are featuring 4 wines from California, Spain, Italy, and France. Please be sure to notice the Chairman’s Selection areas of the store. These wines tend to be of great taste and value. Saturday I will be heading to Central Market for some fresh vegetables and purchasing a few items for dinner on Sunday and I want to be sure to stop for breakfast at The Copper Crust. The sweets and baked items are amazing. Saturday we are going to with a friend of ours for an old world vs. new world wine pairing dinner at the Country Club of York.
John Bobby: This Saturday morning, I’ll be starting the day at The Green Bean Roasting Company enjoying a hand-crafted latte. Then I’ll walk to two of the newest places to shop in downtown York: 56 Urban Provisions and Redeux Marketplace. Saturday night I’m going to the Hotel Hershey to catch some live jazz in the Iberian Lounge. The Dave Wilson & Danny Stuber Trio will be playing from 8 to 11 p.m.

Satoko Berg: We are planning on going to the Pennsylvania Farm Show. We have never been there and have no idea what to expect! But, I think the kids are going to enjoy it!
Vince Moley: Saturday night we’re looking forward to a nice dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in York, Blue Moon Cafe. Sunday looks like a great day for NFL football and R&R.
Susan Scofield: The hot ticket for Saturday is the Hibrewnation craft beer festival in Gettysburg – over 80 beers to try, plus Shane Speal’s Snake Oil Band. Yes please! Sunday, I’ll be getting my art fix at the Opening Reception for the “World Views” exhibit at the York Art Association from 2 to 4 p.m.
Jeff Gochoco: Friday, I’m checking out the Reggae group, Highgrade at the Waterway, 220 W. Philadelphia St. in York.
Rita Whitney: This weekend I’m skipping out of town to go to my nieces first birthday party. Ever the artist though I am crafting some hand made blocks that will be painted with her name on them! If I was in town though, I would be heading to the meditation workshop at Evolution Power Yoga in York.

Susan Scofield: Friday I will be heading over to Beer Mongers to see what’s on tap and to check out some low down, swampy blues from veteran Muscle Shoals musician Russell Gulley. Saturday I will be home working on submissions for three different upcoming art exhibitions here in York, all of which are pulling me out of my artistic comfort zone, which is very challenging!
Mel Conrad: This Saturday at 7 p.m., My friend Susan Loveland and I will be attending – as we almost always do, The 17th Annual Jazz Vespers Concert in honor of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. This concert takes place at First Presbyterian Church of York, 225 E. Market St.

Carol Oldenburg: York City Pretzel Company is on the list for Friday along with all the shops and galleries downtown and in Royal Square. The pretzels and dips are yummy. I cannot wait until they offer their flavored hard pretzels as a regular item!
Mel Conrad: This week, I’ll be drawing free caricatures at Faith United Methodist Church, 126 E. Market St. in Hallam from 7 p.m. ’til 11 p.m. as apart of their New Years Eve celebration. This event is open to the public. On First Friday night, I’ll be at Bistro 19 listening to Groove Jones from 10 p.m. ’til 1 a.m.
Robert Godfrey: Bonne Anne York County from Brussels and Paris. I continue my European Holiday and will be spending New Year’s Eve in Paris and will return home just in time to go to Marketview Arts and see the exhibit by Terri Yacovelli in the Lower Level at 37 W. Philadelphia St. from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 2, 2015. Her work is really amazing. Stop in and see another amazing York artist and replace that item from China on a wall somewhere with something local, something you just love, and something that will enhance your home with pleasure every time you walk past an amazing piece of art. You can visit her website at http://www.terriyacovelli.com.
