With all the rain, I have found myself looking forward to the release of Christopher Robin even more. And now that I have a slow minute, I wanted to catch up on Flashback Friday. So, we will call this one, Makeup Monday.

Need a rainy day trip? I would definitely recommend visiting Midtown in Harrisburg. Beautiful walkways, scenic views of the river, and Strawberry Square. Check out below for specific recommendations.  

Broad Street Market For all of my local readers, if you haven’t made it to Harrisburg’s Broad Street Market, definitely make the trek. My husband and I happened upon it this past weekend and were not disappointed. There is a free parking lot (it fills up quickly) and also free 2-hour parking on the streets. Located in Midtown right next to The Millworks and Midtown Scholar, Broad Street Market along with The Millworks and Midtown Scholar is easily a couple hour adventure. At Broad Street, I would recommend ordering the Curried Goat from Porter’s House. Though, beware of bones. And, if you have time, and the emotional capacity, head to the Civil War Museum.

Part of my blog mission includes supporting local artists and entrepreneurs, particularly those from marginalized communities. And, because I enjoy international food and Afrocentrism, I wanted to include a few shout outs to some local restaurants and businesses.

Awash Lancaster. Love Ethiopian cuisine? Awash is one of my favorite spots to eat. Tucked in to a small strip mall by Franklin and Marshall College, I would recommend ordering their honey wine and spicy Dora Wat. So, so yum!

Etown Noodle. Local Vietnamese Cuisine in Elizabethtown. Ian recommends the Vermicelli Salad and pork rolls I would recommend the Chicken Pad Thai.

PAVAA Gallery. Beautiful and moving Afrocentric art. I had the pleasure of visiting PAVAA for a Loving Event in June, but will definitely go back to check out the art. If you are local and haven’t had a chance to stop by, they are located at 632 N Christian Street Lancaster, PA 17602

La Costena Restaurant in Lancaster serves authentic, delicious Peruvian cuisine. My husband and I visited this restaurant in early Summer/late Spring and really enjoyed the food and the quiet ambience.

What about you? Any restaurants or local day trip itineraries you would recommend? As always, I would be interested in your thoughts.

Shalom always,
