It’s Friday and you’ve got no idea what you’ll do for the weekend.
Patch is coming to the rescue. We’ve got the best bets for your done-work-outta-here time. Check our picks for the activities to hit and new events to explore. We'll feature events from Easton and things to do within driving distance.
Where/When: / Saturday All Day
If you’ve seen the movie “Friends with Benefits” or any of dozens of YouTube videos, you know that flash mobs bring dancers and artists to a location for a spontaneous-looking artistic presentation. Cash mobs, on the other hand, bring regular everyday people to a locally-owned business to support it and the local community and economy. It’s not a crowd of 250 rushing into a small store with cash in hand, like some scene from the floor of the stock market. It is just friends and neighbors stopping in a local store on a predetermined day or time to make a purchase.
Easton joins the Cash Mob bandwagon with a mob at the Village Toy Shop, 285 Washington Street (in the Easton Village Shoppes, Route 138 across from Hilliards) on Saturday, May 5. The shop is open 9 to 7. The store is filled with gifts for kids and families, carrying classic toys as well as the hot toy trends. Their mission is to promote healthy play and create lasting memories of “those afternoon trips to the local toy store.”
