This Week in Mayfair (3/11/13)

I saw the first robin of spring today!!!!

I think I can blame the complete and total brain fart I had last week on Spring Fever. I had written the whole spiel about the Grey Lodge Pub but I was looking at the wrong week. I think I'm just excited to get through March and jump straight to Memorial Day weekend. Hopefully you remembered to "Spring Forward" with your clocks so you aren't an hour late for work on Monday. Unless you want to be then by all means, use the excuse I just gave you.....

This week the Grey Lodge Pub is crazy packed with great events to get you in the mood for the great weather coming! It's Taco Tuesday on Tuesday (03/12/13) so gear up for some famous GLP tacos. It's also the Lucky 13 Homebrew Club meeting for March. And I was unaware of this but the Lucky 13 have a Facebook page if you'd care to join. Click this link:  Lucky 13 Homebrew Club.

So first we have tacos and then it's time to settle in for pi(e) on 3/14 (immaturely giggling at the very obvious joke there--tee hee! It's still funny a week after I wrote it.). Scoats and the GLP will be celebrating Pi(e) Day with Yards Brewing, savory pot pie feast and brownie pie for dessert! Yards is bringing Trubbel de Yards, Yards Black Rye IPA and more. Uhhhhh...YUM!!

And it wouldn't be a Grey Lodge Pub event without some contests and these will definitely not disappoint. The first is the Pi Contest where the winner who recites Pi to the most places (correctly) will win a sweet prize! That starts at 7pm. The Pi Contest is followed immediately by Pi(e) Trivia at 8pm. How well do you know pi?.. or pie? And just an FYI, The answer is ALWAYS coconut cream regardless of the situation. Unless it's the summertime...then it's blueberry a la mode. Don't question, fool.

Also, make sure you spread the word about the new Mommy (or Daddy!) and Me Art Classes starting up on 3/23/12 at Headquarters (7213 Frankford Ave)! Classes will be held each Saturday from 10:30am-12am starting on March 23, 2013. Parents and children ages 3 and up are welcome! The cost is $60 a  month and a $10 supply fee. Please RSVP to Bill at 215-681-5293 as spaces in the class will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Make sure you ask Bill about the other adult and children's art classes too (Beginners Drawing, Advanced Drawing, Acrylic Painting and Oil Painting.)

The Mayfair Memorial Playground (at Lincoln High School) will be holding their 3rd annual Easter Egg Hunt! If you've never brought your kiddies to this event it's a GREAT way to spend a fun afternoon with the family! This coming Saturday, March 16, 3013 from 11am to 1pm.You are asked to bring your own Easter basket and it's $2 per child. They get to "hunt" for eggs, play games, meet the Easter Bunny (who I SWEAR, is NOT as creepy as this guy):

The MMP committee also hosts the BEST bake sale around! Delicious cupcakes, cookies and goodies baked by fantastic community volunteers. 

All proceeds from this event go towards ongoing maintenance of the playground, the purchase of new equipment and if all goes well, a brand new 7 foot fence to keep the playground as safe as possible!! See you there! I'll be the one in the bunny ears!!!

Alright, there may be ONE bad thing about spring:
