Are you free tomorrow night? If so, maybe you want to check out Reading’s 5th Annual Shop the Block. On Thursday night, November 29, from 5 to 9 p.m., the festivities will be held.
A number of local merchants will be open with special sales, raffles and more. The stores include The Wine Shop of Reading, The Chocolate Truffle, Simms Jewelers, Goodhearts Children’s Shop, Sense of Wonder, The Hitching Post, and Everything but the Dog. These stores are all within a short walk of each other.
Each of these stores will have a special Gift Basket up for raffle, and proceeds go to a local charity. This year, the charity is Reading’s Adopt-a-Family Program.
Besides the shopping, there will be entertainment from student performers of Creative Arts for Kids and Reading Memorial High School as well as musicians from the Reading Community Singers.
I usually attend, especially to pop by one of my favorite wine stores, The Wine Shop of Reading. I keep trying to win their gift basket but have not won yet. They usually have something available for tasting as well. Maybe I will see you there!
