Sunday, of course, is the Super Bowl. It's obviously all about the commercials since the Steelers aren't in it, and I can't make you any promises I'll even remember to watch. However, regardless, many local pubs and taverns will feature drink specials and more wings than you'd care to remember the next day.
Tomorrow, we welcome in February. Historically, it’s a bitterly cold month, with small highlights dotting its always-short calendar: Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day. However, if you’re anywhere near Hershey, Pa. (and we are!), it’s also known as “Chocolate-Covered February,” with more chocolate-related events, dinners and treats than you can shake a stick at.
Hershey’s Chocolate-Covered February has a variety of events, from tastings and tours, both family-friendly and adult-appropriate activities, starting tomorrow. But the month-long celebration is truly rung in on Friday, Feb. 5 with the Chocolate Dinner Extraordinaire. I dare you to read this mouth-watering menu. It breaks my heart I will not attend this year.
Back on schedule! This weekend has a lot of promise. I'm going to clean the house, grocery shop, do much-needed laundry. Wow. Aside from that, I've got late night drinks with one of my BFFs on Friday and a long-awaited Sunday brunch at Devon with my best work girls ($3 Mimosas! $4 Bloodies!)

Well, wedding planning seems to be taking over my weekends already, visiting ceremony and reception locations and locking in a photographer. But, fear not, friends. I am quite far from being a bridezilla, and I'm also planning on hitting the gym (finally) and checking out Mikado's new west shore location. By Sunday, it's spa day – a leftover Christmas treat for my girlfriend and I.
Fenicci's of Hershey has long been a Hershey tradition. As the (un)official "go to" before and after Hershey Theatre events (thanks to owner Phil Guarno's specially tailored theme parties and cast nights – and the restaurant's walkable proximity to the theater), it's also one of the few places to find late night eats and entertainment in the Hershey area. On Friday nights, check out DJ Ray Rossi at Fenicci's, and experience a variety of acoustic rock on Saturday nights.
