Mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. when The Paul Green School of Rock will be performing a FREE concert on the Courthouse steps. Although you may have to step out into the heat, it will be worth it to see those incredibly talented young musicians strut their stuff. Don’t forget to bring your own little rockers to enjoy the jam.
Don’t leave the courthouse until you’ve had a chance to enjoy the tranquil shade of the fountain. Settle down on one of the stone benches and decide what to wish for, toss in a coin and wait for your wish to come true…well, don’t wait too long – some wishes take longer than others. Remember to bring a lot of pennies for the kids – those little minds have so many dreams that you just can’t limit them to 2 or 3 coins! I’m still a believer that the bigger the coin the better the chance of the wish coming true.
After all the rocking and wishing, curb your appetite with a big juicy wienie (Behave!). I’m talking about a hot dog, of course, from Wally’s Wiener World. Known for the best dogs in town, Wally’s is a staple on the corner of Market and High Streets. Scott, AKA Wally, is there daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. He will hook your dog up with a variety of toppings, like chili, cheese, relish, onions, sauerkraut or cooked red onions. Add chips and a beverage and you’ve got lunch for less than $4.
Not in the mood for a wiener? Let’s face it, sometimes you just aren’t. Not to fret – they also offer Weekly Specials which ring in at $3.75; add provolone and they’re $4.
Wednesday’s special is the “Wonderful Wally’s Wibwich.” In non-wiener speak, that translates as a BBQ Boneless Rib sandwich. Check out the rest of the week’s specials below.
Monday – Marinara Meatball Madness (Home-style meatballs in marinara sauce)
Tuesday – Mama Wienies Sausage Scaloppini (Sausage peppers and onions in a seasoned tomato sauce)
Thursday – Pulled Porky Pig (Pulled pork in its own juices plain or with BBQ sauce)
Friday – Wally’s Woast Beef Sandwich (Sliced roast beef in au jus)
Food for thought
There is something exhilarating about dining at an outdoor food vendor. You like being outside and down with nature and you would love to have a picnic, but can’t really commit to the whole packing food and blanket thing or even finding grass for a blanket. It may be even better than a picnic because there is no hassle involved.
