2) GoldenEye 007 Retro Game Night at Susquehanna Ale House 22 (Harrisburg)
Unleash your inner 7th-grader tonight during Susquehanna Ale House 22’s weekly Tuesday night retro game competition. Tonight’s featured game is the 1997 Nintendo 64 Pierce Brosnan-era James Bond classic GoldenEye 007. Stalk your enemies with your Walther PPK on one of two 50-inch big screen TVs. The winner receives a $50 gift card. Sign-up by 9:30 p.m. Yuengling drafts are $2, but we suggest you go all in on 007 and order your martinis “shaken, not stirred.” (We’re sure the bartender will get a huge kick out of that…)
3) Thorn Hill wine dinner at The Log Cabin (Leola)

Join The Log Cabin in Leola for its Thorn Hill Vineyards wine dinner starting at 6 p.m.. The menu features an exquisite mix of mouth-watering dishes, including Halibut in a champagne butter sauce, breast of duck, and a poached pear and blueberry tart (check the full menu here).
