This Week in Mayfair (4/15/2013)

Since last week was the absolute epitome of beautiful spring weather I of course was deathly ill with the stomach flu and didn't get to enjoy any of it. But in retrospect, I'm kind of glad I was sick last week as opposed to this week. THIS week is jam packed with not-to-be-missed events.

So let's go in order of the days of the week so you can put this all right into your calendars.

It's Monday. Monday sucks. Drink. At the Grey Lodge or Hammerheads Sports Pub(why would you drink anywhere else?). Oh! and start fasting and saving your money up because the Mayfair Farmers Market starts on Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 9am to 1pm.

 It's Tacooooooooo Tuuuuuuuuuuuuesday! Grey Lodge Pub starting at 5pm.

 For you adults out there. Adults? (I know...I one really WANTS to be an adult? We all have to pay for our cell phones somehow.) Adults who own businesses in Mayfair or people just interested in business, this Wednesday, April 17, 2013at 6:00pm the Mayfair Business Association is holding an open membership meeting where all are welcome to attend! Come to the Mayfair Community Center at 6pm. Expect intelligent adult-oriented discussions about the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) where representatives from Father Judge HS, St. Hubert's, St. Matt's and St. Tim's will be presenting about this program. We'll also be talking about the Mayfair May Fair, Mayfair Fallen Heroes Run and MUCH more!

Then we'll all be heading to Quizzo at the Grey Lodge Pub at 8pm where we'll shuck off our stiff corporate facades and act a fool!

Is this your mantra? You're in luck. Friday is National High 5 Day. You get that chair and go get 'em tiger!!

It's also Earth Day so if hippies make you want to high five people with chairs there might be a gathering of them at the Grey Lodge. (Neither this blogger nor the GLP condone any kind of violence at the take that sh*t to the curb war-monger or you wait outside until the smell of patchouli starts wafting through the door --they're coming--and THEN you wind up.) But if you'd rather drink beer and not war (icky!) make sure you stop by for some Long Trail Brewing. Buy a pint of Long Trail, keep the glass, plus get a seedling (or something) to plant. Or you can just put your weed in it. Hippie.

 It's Saturday, relax. Get your sweatpants out and gear up for tomorrow....MAYFAIR FARMERS MARKET!!! Make sure you say thanks to the CLIP crew who are cleaning the area of Frankford and Cottman in anticipation of the MFM the next day! Such a great group of guys and they were asked to do it by the chairs of the Mayfair Clean-up committee, James Ortlieb and Anna Stacey.

IT'S HERE!!! Mayfair Farmers Market, 9am to 2pm at the intersection of Ryan Ave and Frankford Ave. Live music, face painting, bring the kids!! I'll be talking about it all week and posting drool worthy pictures.

Then you can kick back at the GLP for their Philly Tech Week: Zapping Aliens and Saving the Universe, While Drinking a Beer event.  The Grey Lodge will celebrate Philly Tech Week by hooking various video games to our televisions. They will have old and new school video games, cause they roll both old and new school. To complete the geekiness, they'll have techno music on the juke and maybe some eight bit tunes too from 6pm to 9pm (or later). You'll need to go home if you want to watch "Game of Thrones" that night...sorry.
