I spent last weekend up in Vermont. One of my good college friends has a family lake house up there, and has been trying to get my college crew to go up and stay there, well, since college, which in my case, means for the past ten years. We finally relented and went for

My sister knows me pretty well, because this year she got me a gift certificate for a Philadelphia food tour, which combines three of my favorite things: eating, free-samples (technically if you pay for this yourself, it won’t fall into this category, but since it was a gift for me, it does), and random trivia
I didn’t know what the Crime Town podcast was about when I downloaded it. I mean, I knew the gist. I’d read about it in some “best podcasts so far of 2017” list I read in Esquire, or Men’s Health, or CNN, one of the websites I cruise at work when I’m looking for something
It’s become a tradition that the Saturday after Thanksgiving my friend Jacki and I go exploring new breweries. It started two years ago when we decided to try out the then new Irving Cliff Brewery in Honesdale.

I’ve been to Stroudsburg PA plenty of times over the years. I had few good friends who went to ESU, and have very fond memories of attending a few parties at my one buddy’s apartment above the Sherman Theater on main street. I’ve driven through Stroudsburg more than I’ve actually been in town, especially when
I’m going to make the bold statement that at the moment, Lancaster is 100% the coolest city in Pennsylvania…that no one’s ever heard of. Hear me out. Whenever I tell people I used to live in Lancaster, the most common reaction still is to ask if I lived by the Amish. Most people are surprised
It took great restraint to not title this post, “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem,” and I’m proud of myself for showing that restraint. So, this past weekend, I spent just a little bit of time in Bethlehem, PA, which, if you aren’t familiar, is located in the Lehigh Valley just off both 22, and 78,
