On August 2 and 3 Sarah Jessica Parker is scheduled to appear at Steve and Barry’s. Located in The River Valley Mall in Lancaster Ohio, off of route 33. Steve and Barry’s features affordable stylish clothes for the entire family. I personally love their jeans. Steve and Barry’s is a terrific place to do your back to school shopping for quality, style and value.
Steve and Barry’s have worked with Sarah Jessica Parker to create “Bitten, ” a new line for women. I think it is very cool that Sarah Jessica Parker will be making appearances at Steve and Barry’s to promote Bitten and sign autographs. I am going to go tomorrow and see her , I will write about it tomorrow so you get the details! I thought it was neat to hear she would be in Lancaster as she is from Nelsonville Ohio, about 30 minutes south of Lancaster. Who didn’t love her in Sex and the City?
The River Valley Mall also is home to JC Penney, Sears, Elderbearman, Payless Shoes Dollar Tree, KB Toys, Waldenbooks and a variety of restaurants. It is a nice and quiet mall with skylights, plants and bench’s. The Food Court includes Sbarro, Taco Bell, Charley’s, Subway, Cindy’s Cinnamon Rolls, Aunt Annie’s Pretzels, Cold Stone and others. There also is a small arcade and a theater. Macy’s recently closed in this mall. Nearby you will find many more stores like Target, Pet land, Hobby Lobby, Kmart, Rent A Center, K Mart, And many restaurants. I recommend Etza Pizza Buffet, or The China Buffet. Red Lobster is another good choice.
If you would like to visit Nelsonville home of Sarah Jessica Parker and the Star brick company take route 33 past Logan . You will run directly into Nelsonville.
Nelsonville is the home of Hocking College. It has a pool, a theater and a charming town square where the movie REVENGE was shot in the 1980s I believe. For the most part it is a quiet town. They have a lovely Ramada Inn in Nelsonville and a Vocational School. Rocky Boots were also made in Nelsonville. The parade of the hills takes place in Nelsonville and it is a nice festival. You can take a train ride on the local railroad in Nelsonville at the depot.
Hocking College offers a diverse college experience and it is mostly a 2 year school. In October I believe they put on a haunted house at Robbins Crossing.
Additionally in the 1970s there was a reported Mothman sighting just outside of Nelsonville. Athens Ohio the home of Ohio University is a short drive away via Route 33 and it is also a charming college town with a variety of shops worth visiting. Athens Ohio is also reportedly the most haunted town in Ohio. It is the home of the Ridges a very spooky place! The Annual Famous Athens Block Party happens in late October and it is a fun night out. Many of the students let loose and get crazy and dress in costume! It is worth checking out if you like a little rowdy fun! Wear a costume! There is of course the legend of Billy Milligan that goes with the Block Party. It is rumored that he dressed as Little Bo Peep and killed several people one year but if that is true I don’t know. There was a book about him written called ” The Many Minds of Billy Milligan” . All in all The Block Party is a lot of fun !
