LOCK HAVEN — Looking for something to do on Saturday night? Head to The Station Gallery, 2 E. Bald Eagle St., where four members of Downtown Lock Haven, Inc. are hosting the first Second Side Street Saturday of 2022.
The event, hosted by DLH and four off-Main Street members – The Broken Ax Brewhouse, Dutch Haven, The Village Tavern and Clinton County Arts Council – will be held from 7-9pm and will feature great food, drinks and music . Be sure to bring a chair or blanket to kick back, relax, and enjoy one of DLH’s latest summer events.
Nick Hawrylchak, owner of the Broken Axe, was able to have his PLCB license extended to the lawn in front of the gallery so he could serve beer. The area will be cordoned off and people 21 and over who buy alcohol will be given a wristband.
“I’m going to have five different beer options. It will be a cider, a fruit beer, an IPA, a lighter lager and probably a sour beer,” said Hawrylchak.
He noted that the restaurant itself will be open for business, but you cannot cross the street with alcohol.
Hawrylchak also pays for the music that night, The Clark McClane Band.
“We traditionally do a pass-the-hat during the performance to throw in a few dollars that go to the performers,” he added.
While Hawrylchak and The Broken Ax will provide music and beer, The Village Tavern and Dutch Haven will provide food.
The village tavern will offer meatball sandwiches and Dutch Haven will provide wraps for purchase.
Angela “Kay” Caprio, of The Village Tavern, said she’s grateful that DLH and the nonprofit’s director, Kira Rosamilia, are working with businesses across the city to host events.
“I think it’s a wonderful thing” says Kay. “They are doing a very good job and it was good that they took everyone into consideration.”
Kay can’t wait for The Village to sell her food while attending a family event.
“It would be nice if everyone could come and listen to the music and participate. Just people getting together and having a good time, it’s great,” she says.
And CCAC not only intends to host the event, but also plans to open its latest gallery.
The regional juried photography exhibition – which is hosting an opening reception tonight from 6pm – showcases a wide range of talent from local artists. The theme of this year’s photo exhibition is “Ways of Seeing”.
Rosamilia said the nonprofit will also sell lanterns for $5 as part of its fundraiser. The lanterns will float on the West Fork of the Susquehanna River on Saturday, June 18, during the Best of Clinton County.
The Best of Clinton County will feature a variety of vendors and two parades – one on Main Street at 3 p.m. and another on the river at 6 p.m. Rosamilia encouraged anyone wishing to participate in the parade to contact her office at (570) 748-1576 to register before the event.
