Are you a new parent and have any questions about when and how to start solids? Which nutrition is most important, and how to transition to finger and table foods?

Perhaps attend, and then hit a farmers market to get something for your baby!

Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion, Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks, Millheim, Sunday, 5:00 p.m.

“If renowned American wordsmiths had a royal bloodline, Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion would be poised to take the throne.” One of the area’s best places to get local food and beer will feature the husband-and-wife folk rock duo Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Iron. This Sunday they will play a show at Elk Creek featuring songs off their upcoming album “Wassaic Way”, coming out August 6.
