Friendfest 2015!

It’s that time of year again! The cold, dark days of winter seem to drag on and on, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel! And that light shines on Beltzner Hall in the Kutztown Fairgrounds. It is the seventh annual FriendFest my friends! An event featuring local (and non-local) breweries and wineries who bring some of their most popular beverages for you to taste. You must be at least 21 years old to attend, but you don’t HAVE to drink in order to have a great time. (Designated driver tickets are available at a reduced price) There will also be food vendors with samples as well as live music and dancing. Two awesome local bands will be performing throughout the evening: The Wallace Brothers Band and Frog Holler.

Friendfest is an annual event that will take place on Saturday, February 28, 2015. It is a benefit event held by Friend Inc. who uses the proceeds to help families and individuals in need in Northeastern Berks county.

Some of the vendors you can expect to see are: Golden Avalanche Brewing Company, Kutztown Brew Crew, Saucony Creek Brewing, Yards Brewing Company, Long Trout Winery, Peace Valley Winery, and Stonekeep Meadery. As well as many more!

It is a very fun event for a great cause and something to look forward to during these long chilly days!

There are two sessions that you can buy ticket for: 3-6pm and 6:30-9:30pm.

Ticket prices: Bought is advance, $10 for a designated driver and $35 for general admission. Both ticket prices includes a free hoagie and souvenir glass. General admission tickets bought at the door are $50, so we suggest buying them in advance! (DD tickets are still $10 at the door)

TIckets can be purchased online: Friendfest.org

If you plan on attending and need a place to stay for the night that is within a short walking distance, you know who to call! (Main Street Inn)

 

Baby It’s COLD outside!

This past week has been frigidly cold here in Kutztown, PA. For example, when the high temperature is only 15 degrees, but then add the wind chill, and the real feel temperature plummets to negative 3 degrees, that’s when we know it’s time to find a cozy blanket, warm cup of tea, and turn on the Netflix for a binge session of your favorite TV show.

If you are lucky, you may even have a nice warm fireplace to curl up in front of. Here at the Main Street Inn we have two rooms that offer a fireplace in the bedroom AND bathroom. The Wanner Suite and The Deisher Suite. Our guests often request these rooms during the cold winter months so they can take advantage of soaking in a claw foot tub while sipping a glass of wine and being warmed by the fire. Oh boy, this is sounding better and better the more I talk about it. It’s too bad we don’t have a fireplace near the front desk.
