…is there to do this Friday? Visit the Scranton Cultural Center (420 N. Washington Ave., Scranton), because First Fridays are back.

This season, every First Friday will feature a different visual artist and live music with the party not stopping until 10 p.m. The first of these events kicks off Sept. 6 at 6 p.m.

This First Friday features the inspiring artwork of Amy Wyman with the exhibit “Sun Through the Leaves,” music with the all-female band Keep Coming Back, and the improv stylings of Here We Are In Spain.

Keep Coming Back performs 6 to 8 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m., and Here We Are in Spain are taking the stage from 8 to 9 p.m.


…can you find two brand new places to shop this weekend?

Hit up the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre, where two retailers are throwing open their doors for the first time.

P.S. from Aeropostale is one for the kiddos, offering trendy clothes for girls and boys ages four to 12. The store is located by Radio Shack.

Indulge your taste buds at Bite Your Belgian, Wilkes-Barre’s premier Belgian waffle eatery. This scrumptious store offers freshly-made waffles with a variety of toppings, including maple syrup, caramel, melted chocolate peanut butter, Nutella, and Bischoff – an authentic Belgian spread along with fresh fruit. Ice cream and frozen yogurt are available to compliment any order, and cold and hot drinks are also sold. It’s located across from the Sunglass Hut.


…stop by the Connell Gallery (in the Connell Building on N. Washington Ave. in downtown Scranton) and the Mall at Steamtown’s Library Express this weekend?

On Sept. 6 at 6 p.m., the Hexagon Project exhibit will open in both locations.

The exhibit features visual art in all media by students ages 9 to 18 from around the world. Its purpose is to showcase the power and strength of youthful vision. Interlinking hexagons creatively demonstrate both understanding of interdependence and how art can lead to issues-based global activism.

The Student Recognition Event will take place Sept. 15 at the Connell Gallery from 2 p.m. through 4 p.m.
