I am ready for a chilllllllll weekend. The girls are getting together tonight for Indian food and wine, but tomorrow night I’m staying in (or maybe some light 3rd in the Burg-ing — we’ll see).


Of course, I hope you’ll join me on Saturday at Sassy for our denim-fitting event.


On Sunday, the plan is free yoga at Ever Grain ahead of the Steelers game, but we’ll see …

What are you doing this weekend?

The Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey keep their signature outdoor party going with Decked Out Live Extended running Fridays through November!


The Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey has extended its Friday night concert series through November.

From 6-9 p.m. on Fridays, enjoy seasonal favorites like Flash Gourd’n, Merlot and a special mulled cider made just for Decked-Out Extended, alongside flagship offerings. Plus, enjoy the night by the roaring fire pit complete with all the necessary S’more ingredients.

»» Pro Tip: Pair your smores with the Chocolate M.I.L.F Brown Ale.

Unlike the summer concert series, which is ticketed, the Decked-Out Live Extended is FREE to attend.

Decked Out Live Extended music lineup:

  • Oct. 21 – Loren Pect & Joe Caloriero
  • Oct. 28 – This Side Out
  • Nov. 4 – Erica Everest Trio
  • Nov. 11 – Jones Haven Band
  • Nov. 18 – The Buskers Trio

Firkin Fridays

This week also kicks off the new Firkin Fridays, which will feature special firkins prepared by Brewmaster Ryan Delutis on the third Friday of each month.

Oct. 21

  • Flash Gourd’n: Their fall seasonal will be put into a 12-gallon firkin infused with vanilla and caramel. This will be the perfect beer for a fall night by the fire.
  • Hippie Ki-yay:  Ryan added fresh hops and Niagra grapes grown on their property to a firkin full of their juicy new IPA.

Nov. 18:

  • Sweet Potato Amer Ale: A one-off beer that will be put into a firkin with cinnamon and toasted marshmallow. Thanksgiving comes early with this beer.

Hiking in Mount Gretna

Unfortunately, the past few months have flown by, and my summer to-do list has somewhat morphed into my fall to-do list.

How is 2016 rapidly coming to a close? I have no idea.


Anyway, one hobby I really wanted to get back into was hiking. My husband and I used to go all the time when we first started dating, but life and responsibilities get in the way, and we haven’t gotten out much this year. So, when our friends invited us out for a Sunday afternoon hike at Governor Dick near Mount Gretna, we were more than happy to accept, especially since we had never been there.


We parked a little further down from the observation tower and hiked about three miles before we arrived. This was not a tough hike, there were a few climbs, but it was more of a pleasant walk in the woods, which was fine by me. Of course, I still managed to faceplant, which should not surprise anyone, but I only bruised my ego.


The trails were greatly maintained, and I was sad that we didn’t bring our dog to tag along, it would have been a great trail for dogs that like longer walks. Once we made it to the tower, we had to climb up several old, metal ladders to get to the top of the observation tower. The views from up there were amazing, and we could see for miles and miles. There were plenty of park benches, and we wished we would have thought to bring lunch, it would have been a nice addition to the day.


We hung out for a bit before making the trek back down. The hike back to the car was pretty uneventful, it always feels much longer on the way back, doesn’t it?

If you’re looking for a different, easier-paced hike, definitely take a hike up to the tower. It’s the perfect season now, so get there before the snow comes.
