Weekend Events: Check the new format!!

Hey Cool Princetonians….a little hot for ya this week? The weekend looks iffy but then again most days when it says 20% chance of rain the weather has been brilliant. Not sure how much “science” goes into weather forecasting.

Lots of great things to do around town this weekend. Our pick is the Farm to Table Event at FernBrook Farm. It is a Saturday late afternoon deal…food, wine, fun and kids under 12 are FREE. Great if you have friends coming in from out of town. Also, my other pick is Saturday from 6-8 pm at Small World Coffee on Witherspoon. Rory Smith is opening his art show that will be there thru September 1. I met him a few months back at Small World…his art is INSANELY creative. You won’t be disappointed.

On a deeply sad note we lost a local girl early Saturday morning and we wanted to send our condolences and a note to the community. Kristen-Anne King, 19, a recent graduate of the Hun School, of Princeton, was in the back seat of a car that spun out of control and struck a utility pole at about 3 a.m. on Province Line Road. The driver who was only 20, was intoxicated. While we at PrincetonScoop will never preach to you, we just want to remind you that taking risks like driving after drinking puts everyone’s lives at risk. TAKE A CAB PEOPLE. Princeton even has it’s first ECO-Friendly cab company…A AMIGO 609-452-2121 …and they are people friendly too. So we’re just hoping you’ll all stay safe and hope that Kristen’s family finds peace in the coming days.

Now on to the weekend events: We used to list this monster by category but have changed this week to listings by date AND by category to see if it makes it easier to wade thru this compilation. If you are still reading this far and have another second or two when you are done perusing, please leave us a comment telling us if you like it better this way or the old way. After all….we do it all for you!
