What to Eat, Drink and See This Week // August 13-17
I recently saw someone on Facebook say there was never anything fun going on in the Upper Valley. If you regularly read this blog, well you know that is simply not the case. This week you will notice I broke my 6 events a week rule by sharing a 7th (gasp) event. I just couldn’t choose. Cheers to one awesome week, friends!
JUEL IS OPENING - Tuesday at 7:30 am in White River Junction, VT
The day we have all been waiting for (too dramatic?) is just around the corner! If you’re in White River Junction on Tuesday (for their soft opening), or at all this week for that matter, stop in for a smoothie, cold-pressed juice, elixir, gluten-free baked good, coffee or tea.
27 North Main Street, White River Junction, VT
Randolph Outdoor Concert: Jennings and McComber - Starts on Tuesday at 6pm in Randolph, VT
Pack a picnic and your coziest blanket for this week’s outdoor concert in Randolph. Jennings and McComber are no strangers to Randolph - you might have seen them at the Randolph Farmers’ Market a couple weeks ago. They are a self-described “Green Mountain Indie Folk Band with Celtic Roots” - so if you haven’t seen them yet and think they are up your alley - go for it!
44 South Main Street, Randolph, VT
Bruce Molsky Band (Hop Summer Free for All) - Starts on Wednesday at 5:30pm in Hanover, NH
