this-weekend-feb12

Valentine’s Weekend is here, so everyone is going to be on their best, most romantic behavior this weekend. That means that you better get your fancy restaurant reservations in early…or if you’re more like Mrs. YBC and I, fill up your Netflix queue and choose which takeout spot you’re in the mood for!

In addition to all of the romance happening around Beaver County this weekend, there is also a TON of live music performances that includes everything from B.E. Taylor and The Jaggerz to Sucker Punch and Concrete Soul. No matter what you’re into, you can find it around the BC this weekend.

Here are some of the big events that are circled on our calendars this weekend:

Friday, February 12

Fish Fry of the Week – St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church in Ambridge

This one is all about the homemade pierogies! They are sold at St. Mary’s in Ambridge starting at 10 am and only last until they are sold out…so you better head there earlier rather than later. (Get extra for a that late night snack you know you’re going to want around midnight!)
