Beardsley Farms Hosts SnowDay Benefit at Barley's

Looks like it will be about a week late for any actual snow, but Beardsley Community Farms will be hosting its second SnowDay benefit on Friday, Jan. 15, at 7 p.m. at Barley's Taproom in the Old City no matter what the weather's like. The mini-festival, a fund-raiser for the urban community garden in Mechanicsville, will feature music—Jamie Cook of the Black Lillies and formerly drummer for the everybodyfields, singer/songwriter Jennifer Niceley, Madre, the Enigmatic Foe, Limit Nine, the Slomski Brothers, and folk duo William and Jennifer are all scheduled to play—as well as a silent auction for items donated by local vendors and a soup-off, a showdown for center-city soup superiority among the Bistro, Cafe 4, the Crown & Goose, Sangria's, Tomato Head, and Veg-O-Rama.

SnowDay starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $5, with an additional $3 for soup.
