Three picks for what to do in Central PA on Thursday, June 4.
1) Margarita Mix-off at El Serrano (Lancaster)
If this Thursday has you feeling thirstier than usual, El Serrano’s your best bet. They’re hosting the fourth annual Margarita Mix-off, with Pennsylvania’s best bartenders competing to see who can create the tastiest tequila-laced concoction. Judges do the official awarding, but you’re encouraged to decide for yourself: guests can sample the contestants’ creations. The tasting and live entertainment starts at 6 p.m., but specials to celebrate the contest kick off at 5 p.m. Get there a little early to fill up on good eats before you wet your whistle.
2) Crossing Abbey Road at the Farmers Market in Hershey (Hummelstown)
Beatles tribute band Crossing Abbey Road has been bringing the Fab Four’s hits to life for three years. They manage to stay true to the spirit of classics like “With A Little Help From My Friends,” all while still putting on their own unique spin. They play the Farmers Market in Hershey from 6-8 p.m. as part of the market’s free summer concert series. Check out this montage of their 2012 performance at Penn State Hershey Medical Center:
3) Shaggy featuring Jordin Sparks at Sawyer’s (Harrisburg)
Maybe you’re not feeling 1960s classic rock today. That’s fine, we don’t judge. Maybe you’re more in a 1990s/2000s hip-hop/R&B fusion kinda mood. Fear not; we’ve got you and your very specific musical tastes covered. Shaggy and Jordin Sparks share the stage at Sawyer’s at 8 p.m. This free concert showcase both artists’ complimentary musical talents. And be sure to check out the outdoor bar while you’re there.
