Three picks for what to do in Central PA on Friday, July 3.
1) Moo-Duck Brewery 4th of July Picnic (Elizabethtown)
This Independence Day Eve, enjoy an indoor picnic with the folks at Moo-Duck Brewery. They’re selling bacon cheddar and buffalo chicken dip hot dogs for $4. There’s also a complimentary side bar, stocked with watermelon and salad, and everyone’s favorite least-appropriately-named picnic game, corn hole. No worries if your schedule is tight – this picnic runs from 12:30-9:00p.m., so you’re virtually guaranteed to find some time that works.
2) Red, White, and Block Party: York’s Second Friday (York)
There’s so much to do, drink, and eat in downtown York tonight that you just might need a guide to the highlights of the event… oh, wait, you have that. From a pretzel dog eating competition to beer tastings thanks to the Beer Ace to swing dancing and beyond, you’ll find something rad to do in the White Rose City this evening. Visit some art galleries! Expand your mind! Make a game of trying to eat something from every food truck you can find! Expand your stomach!
3) Happy Hour with Stu Huggens at Annie Bailey’s (Lancaster)
For a truly syncretic blend of Irish tradition and American late capitalism, search no further. Annie Bailey’s truly awesome happy hour returns with bluesy, Johnny-Cash-inspired Stu Huggens to serenade you as you welcome in the July 4 weekend. Sit in the bar sections from 5-7p.m. and enjoy $2 off Miller Lite, Coors Lite, and Yuengling; $3 off all Irish beers, as well as Stella and Blue Moon; and a mouthwatering beef satay over Asian slaw for $5.
