Andy Buckley in Scranton this weekend

Andy BuckleyThe Office’s Andy Buckley (‘David Wallace’) visits Scranton this weekend.

He’ll be attending a “Raising the Roof!” happy hour on Friday, kicking off The Office Fan Tours on Saturday, and maybe even hanging out at the Pocono Raceway with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (he’s apparently quite the Office fan) on Sunday.

Quite the busy itinerary!

The Office Fan Tours are scheduled every Saturday throughout the summer and showcase landmarks made famous by ‘The Office’:

Four-hour tour that begins at the Mall at Steamtown and ends at Poor Richards Pub. Includes full lunch at Cooper’s w/ beet salad, crab bisque and more. Local brews and wine included with 21+ ticket, however keep in mind this is a clean, fun family tour. Tour includes recognizable places and inspirations such as Farley’s, The Bog, Paper Magic, Cooper’s, Penn Paper building, Alfredo’s, and many other Scranton sights.

Cost: $35 adults, $25 children

P.S. Yes, OfficeTally’s Q&A with Andy is coming later this summer. Stay tuned!
