Yes, yes. That dreaded “snow” thing may happen again Thursday evening into Friday, but hopefully everything will be clear in time for the weekend.
This weekend offers a great mix of events in Phoenixville, from movies to workshops to a birthday bash for a famous Scotsman. And, for a lot of the events this weekend, it’s your last chance to go, so be sure to check those out.
Last Chance Events
The very funny film noir parody show “Adrift in Macao” closes this weekend after a successful run at Forge Theatre. Performances are planned for Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.
Christmas Village, located in Westridge Estates, will be closing up shop after this weekend. If you haven’t seen it, definitely stop by and check it out. Here’s a video to give you a peek, and the display will be open Jan. 22 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Sharpen Your Skills
If you’re one of the many who’s out of work, why not try polishing up the résumé with some help from the Phoenixville Public Library? The library will hold a résumé writing workshop Jan. 22 from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. It’s free, it’s local and it might help you score that job you’ve been hoping for.
White Eagle Martial Arts will present skills of a different sort. They’re holding a family night out at the Civic Center sponsored by Communities That Care and the Phoenixville Recreation Department. Don’t be shy—there will be participation, if you’re game. The demo will be held Jan. 21 at 7 p.m.
Music and Film
The Sly Fox will host its annual Bobbie Burns Birthday Bash, complete with music, prizes for best kilt and of course, lots of love for the Scottish poet. It will take place Friday, Jan. 21 from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.
First Friday Fright Night (on a third Friday) features Mystery Science Theatre 3000’s Jack Frost episode, showing at 9:45 p.m. at The Colonial Theatre. I’m excited to again get to watch a great show on the big screen.
Additionally, The Colonial Theatre presents a British Invasion Tribute on Sunday, Jan. 22 at 8 p.m. It’s a Point Entertainment event and will feature music from bands like the Stones, the Beatles and more.
