My Summer Trunk

Memorial Day Weekend is the traditional summer kickoff.  Due to all the money I’m already set to spend this summer (thanks, Ireland),  I decided to have a low key four days.  I did a day trip to Gettysburg yesterday (which will be my next post), and am going to Marsh Creek for a few hours

Country Music in Albany

Why Country? I publically hated country music for years.  It mainly had to do with high school insecurities, the kind where you have a carefully constructed image of yourself you want to project.  See, while I grew up in a developement, my school district was extremely rural and had a reputation as a “hick” school.

The Pedal Bar

Take a look at this music video.  Besides being a phenomenal song, what jumps out at you?  If you’re anything like me, you took one look at the bicycle/drinking contraption they’re riding around on and said to yourself, “I need that in my life.” My friend Kelsey and my brother introduced me to “One More

A Sober-ish Fun Day

Peach Music Festival

More to add to the Summer 2012 to do list. One of my favorite summer activity is concerts in the lawn section at Montage Mountain. In fact, I used to have personal policy that if I new at least two songs and the tickets were under $30.00, I’d go just for the hell of it.

Kayaking the Susquehanna…in NEPA

Has anyone  ever purchased and used a Living Social deal?  I’m subscribed to Philly, Lancaster/Harrisburg, and Scranton, but have never purchased one (I have used Groupon before).  They  seem to be pretty good deals, and even if I don’t end up buying one on the day specified, (I wish they’d last more than a day,

Philadelphia City Pass

If I don’t go out Friday nights I’m normally up by 8:00  or 9:00 Saturday mornings.  It’s partially because work has rid me of the ability to sleep in, partially because I feel like I”m missing out on the day, and partially because over the years I’ve been conditioned to function with very little shut eye.   Waking up
