So, are you experiencing cabin fever yet? Need to get out and do something different? If the answer is YES, then take a peek at what you will find going on in Oberlin and Wellington this weekend – February 5th, 6th, and 7th. Come and stay at the B & B Friday night so that you can get going early to each activity!
First off on Saturday, drive a short 7 miles down to Wellington and take part in the CHOCOLATE WALK! That’s right, I said Chocolate Walk! Um m! Sounds so good! First stop is at Main Street Wellington at 118 W. Herrick Ave. to buy your $10.00 chocolate ticket. Then visit some of the 30 participating businesses and offices that are taking part and receive your ‘CHOCOLATE’ surprise. You may want to run back up to Oberlin for a few hours to attend the function taking place there at the same time.
Oberlin is host to the FREEZING ARTS FEST which takes place from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.! Here there will be master ice sculptors creating works of art in the downtown area in front of Ben Franklin’s (13 W. College St.) and at the Gingko Gallery (19 S. Main St) there will be snowflake making. During the fest there will be an ice cube toss, ice bowling, and other ice games taking place on W. College St. Hot chocolate and cookies will be available at Herrick’s Jewelry for a donation and cabbage and noodles can be purchased at Watson Hardware.
Then maybe race back down to Wellington to get the rest of those CHOCOLATE surprises!
Rest up and warm up during the evening and then have dinner at one of our fine restaurants. The movie at the Apollo this week is Avatar but in 2D.
After breakfast at the B & B on Sunday, check out late and make plans to attend an Oberlin College production of Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour Lost.” That performance will take place on Sunday at 2:00P.M. in the Hall Auditorium Little Theater at the rear of of the building. This Play will also be performed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week at 8:00 P.M. Tickets are $3.00 in advance or $5.00 at the door. A shout out to Phillip Waller, the Director and the son of one of our very special guests who’ll be here for the weekend! Click on the link above for more details.
