Even though we’re two weeks out from Black Friday, some of the best deals of the year in Jim Thorpe can be found Friday, Nov. 14 on Customer Appreciation Day in our participating local shops. Click here for coupons and more information.
It’s a fun atmosphere downtown with special offers and extended shopping hours. For instance, in addition to 20 percent off all day at the Mauch Chunk 5 & 10, they’ll also have specials, door prizes and a special visitor, too.
The fun continues Friday night at the Mauch Chunk Opera House, when singer-songwriter Shawn Phillips takes the stage. Tickets $20. Showtime: 8 p.m.
Saturday night The Band Band performs The Last Waltz, with hors d’oeuvres by 14 Acre Farm. Tickets: $26. Showtime 8 p.m.
Check back on Sunday for my interview with Chris McKhool, who’ll take the Opera House stage next weekend with his Grammy-ballot nominated Sultans of String.
