That headline’s not completely accurate, but it’s a big week for Franktuary outside of its storefront. Visit us for lunch downtown and visit us again at one or both of these fine events later in the week!

1) This Friday Franktuary will be at The Allegheny Front’s Local Foods Happy Hour. All you really need to know is that we’ll be giving out Locavore samples and you, my friend, will have the rare opportunity to purchase this fabulous product for home use by the pound! It’s also crucial to know that TAFLFHH (what a great acronym!) runs from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at WYEP’s Southside Studios. Find more information here. Hope to see you at TAFLFHH soon!

2) This Saturday is Handmade Arcade. The one-of-a-kind indie craft fair is back at the Hunt Armory in Shadyside. The event runs from 11 am – 8 pm. Franktuary will be there all day, nourishing hungry shoppers and vendors alike. For those of you that wish Franktuary had weekend hours, well, this is your chance to live the dream. Bring all those friends who can never make it downtown. Seriously, even if Franktuary wasn’t there to feed you, HMA would be well worth attending. It is an ideal way to support independent merchants while discovering unique holiday gifts. Details here. Not to be missed.
