Previously, smoking was only permitted in the bar and not in the dining area.
With the showers comes plenty of events. Clearly, we all have spring fever!
- Tonight, try Cantone’s for their monthly wine tasting.
- For some political flavor, try HYP‘s Mock Presidential Debate at the Hilton Thursday, April 3
- Or, if you’re feeling like a lullaby, check out Shawn Mullins at Whitaker Center.
- Arrr! Check out the Swashbuckler Pyrate Feaste starting Friday, April 4, at the PA Ren Faire in Manheim.
- Auditions for Love’s Labour’s Lost to be performed at Gamut Theater are this weekend as well. Contact the theater at 717-238-4111 to sign-up. No walk-ins!
- Soon as it stops raining, I’ll stop into Zephyr to check out their new menu.
- Around that time, Brewhouse Grille‘s deck should reopen.
Well, the buzz abounds.
*UPDATE* – Level 2 will open to the public on May 16.
That’s right, it’s the weekend round-up. Before I head out to glorious Elk County this weekend, I wanted to leave you with some thoughts.
- Tonight, the MODE Happy Hour is at the newly redesigned Spice (Fisaga). Drinks and apps are cheap from 5-7 p.m.
- You must visit Kasbah tomorrow night for a night of belly dancing and Moroccan delights. A four-course prixe fixe dinner is $45 per person. BYOB.
- If you’re feeling a little friskier, however, stop over to the CPAA‘s “Spay-ghetti” dinner at the New Cumberland Fire Hall from 4-7 p.m. and eat sketties to help animals!
- Don’t be an April fool – Troegs “The Art of Drinking Tröegs bottle cap Art Contest” kicks off on April 1.
- Come out for opening day at Commerce Bank Park. The Senators kick off their season on Thursday, April 3 at 6:35 p.m. against the Akron Aeros.

- 1 fresh whipped cream

Mark this one on your calendars – Friday, April 11 at Tröegs Brewing Company.
I got an iPod nano (silver). Many of you may recall my resistance to acquiring this magical musical device – and I am still concerned about having an elliptical-related accident or breaking out into a song-and-dance number like an Ally McBeal episode.
I’ve also realized that this small possession is just a gateway to more purchases. I now need new earphones (seriously, who can wear these things?), some sort of skin or case to hold the contraption and, of course, music.
Fortunately, I have a rather big music collection I intend to slowly move onto the iPod. I’m going to try not to spend my paycheck at iTunes.com.
The FireHouse Restaurant will go 100 percent nonsmoking next Thursday, March 20, to commemorate the first day of spring. Smoking will no longer be permitted on the first two levels after March 20. I have heard rumor, however, that smoking will still be allowed on the third floor during special events.
Raise your hand if you’re relieved it’s Friday. Okay, put them down.
I’m not touching the you-know-what festivities – Alexis covered a sampling yesterday – but really, go find an Irish bar or a bar with an Irish spirit – And don’t forget to nourish! As for the weekend, let’s see what the fine folks of “central” PA have in store for you.
- OK, one mention: Don’t forget the St. Patrick’s Day parade in downtown Harrisburg tomorrow.
- After which, please stop by the Cathedral Room at the Maennerchor for another Saturday Night Explosion, Progressive Galleries‘ art show, also featuring live music.
- Cantone’s has saxophonist “Richie Rags” from 8-11 p.m. Saturday. Try their wine tasting events the first Tuesday of every month.
- Thinking about volunteering this spring? Stop by Whitaker Center on Sunday from 2-5 p.m. for a Volunteer Open House. For more info, please email or call 717-221-8201 x 2705.
- Popcorn Hat Players is performing Rumpelstiltskin now through April 5.

I’m not sure what the rest of you are up to, but while I’m at the luxurious Hotel Hershey this weekend, here’s what is going on around town:
- My favorite local cover band, The Impact Band, is at Champions tonight. Loving Hershey, but I’m sad to miss this inevitable dance party.
- A Haitian Art Show kicks off tonight at St. Stephen’s Cathedral and runs through Tuesday.
- If you’re looking for something to do with the kids, Whitaker Center‘s KidsPlace opens tomorrow at 10 a.m.
