Updated 10:46 am, Friday, January 24, 2014
Admit it, you've gotten used to the cold and snow, so you have no reason to stay indoors this Fairfield weekend. Ditch the shovel, and get out and enjoy. Here are some suggestions:
Did you ever wish you were an Oscar Mayer weiner? If that is what you truly want to be, head over to the Super Stop & Shop at 760 Villa Ave. on Friday between noon and 5 p.m. to get an up-close look at the famous Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile. Company reps will be handing out whistles, stickers and postcards, and posing for pictures in front of the 27-foot-long hotdogmobile.
Learn to shop smart Saturday when Marilyn Zelinksy-Syarto of Two Frugal Fairfielders presents a free, hands-on workshop about smart shopping and coupons at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library on Fairfield Woods Road. Admission to the 1 p.m. event is free, but advance registration is required. Call 203-255-7308.
Spend "An Afternoon in Old Prague" Sunday when Fairfield University professor emeritus and pianist Orin Grossman performs with a group of musical friends at 3 p.m. in the Quick Center for the Arts, 200 Barlow Road. Tickets are $35 and $30. Visit www.quickcenter.com or call 203-254-4010.
First Church Congregational, 148 Beach Road, will open its dining room Sunday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. to bolster efforts to feed those in need. Pasta is on the menu, and those attend are asked to donate what they can to pay for the meal. All the food is being donated by Chip's Family Restaurant. Reservations are required; call 203-255-5238 or 203-257-2276.
