Otto's Kitcken & Cocktails Grand Opening

If comfort food and cocktails sound like your kind of night out, then stop by Otto's Kitchen & Cocktails in downtown York this weekend. The restaurant and cocktail bar specializes in comfort food and classic cocktails -- think Manhattans and Old Fashioneds -- from the 1920's. Otto's celebrates its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. Friday. Read more about the menu and vibe of the place here.

DaNica Shirey sings National Anthem

York's favorite "The Voice" finalist returns to the spotlight Friday as she is inducted into the Leo Club Hall of Fame at her alma mater Red Lion Area High School. After the 6:30 p.m. ceremony, Shirey will sing the National Anthem prior to Red Lion's first home football game of the season. Details here.

Live Arts Festival

If you've never been to Ruins Hall in Glen Rock, this weekend is a good time to go.
