It's Groundhog Day...Again-- Part 2

From October 28th blog entry.

Nineteen years after the film's release, the setting of the movie "Groundhog Day" still rocks with small-town charm. And, that's no kidding. Whereas the real Punxsutawney. Pa., gets thousands of visitors Groundhog Day, the celebration in the movie's "Punxsutawney" is on a much smaller scale. This one is in the hundreds.

I have been to it for most of the last nine years and hope to be back in 2012.

The article describes one of Woodstock's events from the celebration, the Shake Off the Winter Blues dinner-dance held at the Woodstock Moose Lodge where the bachelor auction and dance (where Bill Murray played the piano) took place, "An aging classic-rock cover band lays into a Bob Seger tune, and the flannel-wearing folks in Woodstock Moose Lodge No. 1329 cheer and crack open $2.50 Miller Lites (hey, after all this is Miller Land)." And, then, there is also the $10 pasta buffet.

This is an annual tradition for the three-day+ celebration, taking place on the Friday.
