Kara Gonzales, left: The highlight of my weekend will be going out to First Friday! I always love seeing all of the new shows and storefronts. It’s great to see York so alive with creative spirit.
Carol Oldenburg, right: After First Friday, I will be painting in my studio and watching movies.
Lyn Bergdoll: I’m looking forward to having lunch at Wyndridge Farm this weekend. Located at 885 S. Pleasant Ave., Dallastown, this beautiful country setting is now attracting many local visitors as well as guests from out of town. Several of my friends have had lunch there and rave about the food, service and ambiance.
Mary Yeaple: This weekend, Rodney and I are heading downtown for First Friday and checking out many of the Date Night events… there are a lot of delicious-sounding specials. (Since I’m traveling next weekend, we are having our Valentine’s Day celebration a week early.) Saturday night, we are catching Don’t Look Back at Mudhook Brewing Co.
Vince Moley: Headed to the Poconos for a guys weekend.
Dillon Samuelson: On Thursday, I’ll be attending the opening reception of YorkArts’ “Emerging Visions” exhibit: a show highlighting the artwork of nine undergraduate students from schools in Pa., Md., and N.Y. I enjoy seeing what undergraduates are creating, but it can be difficult to view art students’ work without attending their schools. This show gives us the opportunity to see work from a selection of skilled students from multiple schools all in one place.
Kelley Gibson: I’ll be taking the girls out on the town for First Friday date night and visit Redeux for their Lady & The Tramp event. Saturday is a Gibson girls spa day-I’m taking Maddy and Kaelin to Salon Oxygen to get our nails done. Kelly always makes them feel tres chic!
Robert Godfrey: I am looking forward to first Friday this month because the theme is “Date Night”. I have a big date with a bunch of creatives on some super secret things to come for The Handsome Cab. Happy Hour will be fun from 5 to 7 PM at the Left Bank for some of their Calamari and red wine. Then off to visit Marketview Arts for the Image of the Artist: Self-Portraits in the York College Galleries upstairs. I want to mention the secret code word at I-ron-ic because all love bugs will receive 10% off and that certainly sounds like me. I will end the evening in Royal Square and see the exhibit of Art and Sole at the King’s Courtyard that features canvas sneakers painted like famous artists. Finally, a pop in to see our friends at Prime Art Supply and Hive ArtSpace.
Mike and Sue Edmonds: Now that the American football has ended, Sue and I are turning our attention to the 6 Nations Championship Rugby Union Tournament. The 6 Nations championship is played over seven weekends in February and March (and sometimes April) by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. It will be entertaining television on Friday, as our favorite club, Wales, hosts England, at a rocking Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. We’ll be back at York’s Central Market on Saturday. The plan is to eat a hearty breakfast at Tim Spangler’s excellent Mezzogiorno, then walk off some calories, while shopping and shooting pictures of York’s historic architecture. Later, we will meet up with friends for drinks and another Kable House concert. We’re excited to hear 24 year-old Lydia Loveless with opening act, The Silks.
John Bobby: It will be a busy weekend downtown starting with all the stuff going on for York’s First Friday. The theme this month is “Date Night.” Capping off the night with a showing of Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs at the Capitol Theatre at The Strand at 9 p.m. Tickets are $7 in advance or at the box office. Saturday night, having pizza and a drink at my one of favorite new downtown places, Brewvino. Then heading to Central Market on for the latest Kable House show, Lydia Loveless and opening act The Silks. The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are $15.
