Happening This Weekend - 11/24/2017

This weekend, let the entire Shopping Guide and Restaurant Guide be your road maps to entertainment. Whether you need to eat clean (with a little bit of dirty) at Stock Up or Meyer's Olde Dutch, or go gluten-free at Ella's Bellas (even Brother's Trattoria has a gluten-free pizza), the Things To Do In Beacon Guides are at your fingertips in our mobile-friendly design.

Hunting and Gathering via our Guides isn't just for food; it's also for things you need, want, covet. That's the fun of shopping Beacon. And it's all here. Got a style itch? Main Street will scratch it. Need to glam up your eyelashes? Society of Lash is the lash bar you can walk to near Beacon Pantry. Need a brow wax? The Blushery is where to go across from the Dummy Light. Need makeup? The Blushery has that too, but Beacon Natural Market carries incredible brands that are in line with their principles to look great and feel great from the inside out. Need pretty undies? The Bra Fit Expert in the back of Echo is the secret place everyone heads to for so many frilly styles.

Outdoorsy guys (and gals), you know where to get your fix - Mountain Tops. The source of everything outdoors that you didn't know you needed, and didn't know existed. Shop Reservoir and Echo both have rugged styles for men, in shirts, boots, gloves, leather - everything a guy could want. Speaking of leather, check the duffel bags at Bellus on Main. Speaking of Bellus, there is also Nella Bellas Boutique next the Inn & Spa at Beacon (spa services available with discounts to locals) that sells affordable bling and dresses.

And the Pop-Ups! One of Beacon's original Pop-Up Shops (see our Guide here), inside of Sacred Space (formerly perma-popup Colorant, which has moved across the street) is back and has re-opened the space to a rotating display of artisans called Create Space.

All of the awesome cannot be contained in these paragraphs. You must go out and walk/drive/bike/park. See below for the goings-ons and ideas (and click here for where to park for free that doesn't involve parallel parking).

Have a wonderful weekend! Any independently owned store you support is a win-win for your community! Even if you're in big-box stores this weekend and season, look for independent brands on the shelves, owned by mom and pop businesses, who work really hard to get their products on those shelves as wholesalers. Keep your eyes open for these types of brands!
We know what you're thinking: "I want my business featured here!"
