…is the only guy that could get away with fluorescent duds and socks with sandals as his signature style? It’s area native Jay McCarroll, winner of the inaugural season of fashion competition “Project Runway.”

The designer will be at Outrageous (Midtown Village, 41 S Main St., Wilkes-Barre) April 20 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. The store was one of the first retailers to carry the Jay McCarroll label.

McCarroll makes it a point to check in where his roots lie.

“You can travel the world over, yet there’s nothing as refreshing as being with the ones who love and support you in the place where you grew up,” he said in a press release.


…is going on at Clam Diggers (1946 Rt. 6, Scranton/Carbondale Highway) on April 28 at 3 p.m.? It’s a benefit bash for Jessie and family, a woman who was injured when struck by a drunk driver in November. The single mother of an autistic child, she is now unable to work for at least six months while she recovers.

The $7 donation at the door will go towards paying medical expenses. The event is presented by Molten Management and hosted by Nikki Stone and Freddie Fabbri with lighting by Tony Valvano. It is sponsored by Cold Case Beer Store (Exeter), 707 Auto (Avoca), Original White House Hoagies (Scranton), Nick of Time Printing (Dallas), Avenue Auto Sales & Service (Exeter), Calabria Pizzaria (Dunmore), The Last DJs (Scranton), Serge’s Barber Shop (Scranton), and Fundraising USA (Wilkes-Barre).

Live entertainment will be provided by Rock Box, The Fallen, Ashleys Attik, Skin-n-Bones, Sucker, Pissed and Mizerable, Tightly Wound, and special guest Oz. Designated drivers get free admission.


…is Weezy? Not in the hospital, thankfully. Hip-hop artist Lil Wayne is coming to the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain with T.I. and Future on July 21. Tickets go on sale April 19 at 10 a.m.
