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.
Mary Yeaple: This weekend, we are catching some local live music at Mudhook Brewing Co. The band 3 Dollar Suit is performing from 8-11 p.m. Staff will be in suit coats, and customers are encouraged to wear suits as well. (According to Mudhook’s Facebook page, loaners will be available.)
Raquel Lilly: On Thursday, I will be attending a dinner for the United Way of York County to celebrate the previous and upcoming year in giving. The celebration will be at Heritage Hills. On Friday, myself and a few very good friends will be enjoying dinner at the Yorktowne Hotel. On Sunday, the Equality Fest committee for 2015 will be meeting to discuss this year’s event while enjoying a meal at G’s Jook Joint.
Susan Scofield: It’s a crazy week for me, but if I can figure out how to work it in I would like to attend the Judy Pfaff Artist Lecture & Opening Reception at York College Art Galleries on Thursday, and hopefully make it to Beer Mongers on Friday for The Susquehanna Bottom Feeders, which is always a great show!
Lyn Bergdoll: Remembering many family trips to Gettysburg, this area has always fascinated me. I have not been to the Visitor’s Center there, but plan to change that this weekend. The film shown there is narrated by Morgan Freeman, and is highly recommended, as is the Cyclorama. Spending time in the museum is sure to be a moving and educational experience.
Mike & Sue Edmonds: This weekend Sue and I will join good friends for dinner and drinks at Wyndridge Farms in Dallastown. We’ve been hearing good things about them, and know from firsthand experience, they brew a very drinkable Chocolate Imperial Porter. But this will be our first visit to their venue. We’re excited to sample their food and crafty ciders.
