After the last several weeks of frantic pre-holiday activity, maybe we need a light week to just settle in and relax, hopefully with a few days off from the 9 to 5.
So, here’s what’s on tap for the week ahead.
Saturday from 9 p.m. to midnight, check in to Rock Saginario’s Toy Drive for Local Orphanages at Paddy Rooney’s Pub, 449 West Chester Pike in Havertown. They’re asking that you bring a new unwrapped toy or give a cash donation at the door. Music by Lefty.
Next Saturday—and this could be a little far afield for some people, but it sounds lovely nonetheless—the Cathedral Church of the Nativity, 321 Wyandotte Street in Bethlehem, is presenting a Celtic Christmas, with Christmas tunes and a carol sing-along, all by candlelight.
It starts at 5 p.m. and runs for an hour.
Also next Saturday, the John Byrne Band plays the music of Shane MacGowan and the Pogues at the Locks at Sona, 4417 Main Street, in Manayunk. Starts at 8 p.m., runs to 11.
That’s it for now.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everybody!
