There is a new hot spot hitting Elizabethtown that has sports fans cheering louder than they ever have before.  The Elizabethtown community is welcoming a new restaurant with  new atmosphere this town has not yet seen.  Legacy Sports Bar and Grill has recently opened its doors for sports fans and regular customers a like.  You can tell from the moment you walk into the building that this restaurant is the place to be for all sporting events.

“Yes, every Thursday and Saturday we’re going to have live entertainment.  The bands will be posted either in the internet or you could come in and see what bands are coming up.  We have a lot of classic rock, blues, jazz, blue grass, classic rock, and we had a reggae  band last night.” (Amy, Legacy Waitress)

From autographed jerseys of some of the best athletes hanging all over the walls, to certain memorabilia like bikes, kayaks, and tennis rackets, this  restaurant has really made a legacy of its own.

“The memorabilia in this restaurant takes it to a whole other level.  Its almost like your coming into a mini hall of fame.  Because when you arein here we have so many jerseys and memorabilia, things that the owners have collected over the years.  A lot of sentimental pieces to get backto the whole family atmosphere of the restaurant you’ll even see medals and pictures of the children of the families and the different sports they have excelled in.” (Amy, Legacy Waitress)

If your worried about not seeing one the six flat screen televisions hanging on the walls, its fine, there is also a massive projector screen that hangs down in the dining area playing the best sports game on that particular night.

Legacy Sports Bar and Grill packs personality and originality with an athletic- like atmosphere never seen before.

Student group hosts childrens show

One of the great parts of a small area such as Elizabethtown is the ability for members of the community to enjoy what the college has to offer. One such event is slated to take place early next month in Tempest Theatre. Sock & Buskin, a theatre club at Elizabethtown College, is hosting its first ever production of a children’s show on May 4th and 5th. The club plans to take two to three of Shakespeare’s comedies and turn them into children’s shows. The production will be written and directed by members of the club’s leadership team, and will feature some of E-town’s finest actors.

Rachel Saul, ’12 is very excited for this event. According to Saul, historian for Sock & Buskin, “this is the first time [the club has] done something like this. We get to showcase our talented students to an audience which doesn’t usually get to see us.”

Nicole St. Pierre, ’12 is the club’s secretary and is the main playwright. Not only is she looking forward to the production to premiere, she is also enjoying the writing process. St. Pierre is a theatre minor and has written multiple short plays which have been featured both at Elizabethtown College and Millersville University. “I’ve never written for children before, and they are one of the most specific audiences to cater to, so this is a good experience for me as a writer.”

Members of the club are hoping for this to be a successful event. Rachael McQuiggan, ’13 the club’s treasurer and stage manager of the production, had this to say: “I just really want the children to enjoy themselves. We’re putting a lot of effort into this project and hopefully the community will come out to watch us perform. Ultimately, we would like to make this a lasting tradition.”

The children’s theatre production will be performed on Friday, May 4th at 6pm, and Saturday, May 5th at 11am, in Tempest Theatre. The shows are geared for children in elementary school and will run approximately 45 minutes in total. Tickets cost $6 per person, with a family deal at $25 for 5 people, and can be paid with cash or check. Reservations can be made by contacting the club at sockandbuskin@etown.edu.
