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.
Lyn Bergdoll: The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be shown on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 11 at 8 p.m. This event honors the year’s best in film and television. Combining entertainment and fashion, it is pure fun! Could a musical win Best Motion Picture for 2014?
JJ Sheffer: The Imitation Game opens this weekend at Midtown Cinema, and my son and I look forward to seeing it Friday evening. We’re members at MC, so our tickets are always $5.

They’ve also added Shawn Beck on turntable. Starts at 7 p.m. Don’t be late, because this is always a standing room-only event. Free will offering will be collected.

Sue and Mike Edmonds: Sue and I plan to spend the weekend in Philadelphia to attend a holiday party, take in some live jazz and visit the Simeone Foundation Auto Museum. The Simeone is located near the airport and has a very reasonable entry fee ($12) to see their world-class collection of about 70 racing sports cars. This weekend, they are hosting one of their “demo days” so we’ll get to see, hear and smell four cars that they specially selected for their innovative design: 1924 Lancia Lambda, 1937 Cord 812 Supercharged, 1950 Allard J2 and a 1966 Ferrari 356P “Tre Posti” Berlinetta Speciale.
