Weekly Check In: Living in the Moment, Retaining the Fun, & Suffering the Consequences

I was writing two new posts these week, both unpublished, one about Bethlehem, and one about Lancaster.. Both are places I briefly visited this past weekend.  I was disappointed, as I often am, that I had less than stellar pictures to chose from. I went into this weekend thinking I’d also do a quick post

Weekly Check In: 3 PA Spots Recently On My Radar

Short and sweet. Here are three PA spots that have recently popped up on my radar. And you didn’t think I could be succinct! Here & Now Brewing Company in Honesdale– I just found out two days ago that a new brewery has opened in Honesdale.  I like the look of the beer and food

Weekly Check In: Childhood Treats

A few weeks ago my manager brought in a utility tub of animal crackers for a work party.  These were the sugar-cookie, cakey animal crackers that come in such tubs, not the graham-cracker-adjacent animal crackers which  come in those tiny boxes shaped like circus train cars, which you could carry around via their string handle.

Weekly Check In- Prantl’s Bakery

I was bored during my lunch break at work, and against my better judgement found myself taking Buzzfeed quizzes, one of which, was entitled, “You’re a True Pennsylvanian if You’ve Eaten 20/28 of These Foods.”  The quiz is obviously bullshit, because I scored a 15, and thus was told I’ve probably “visited Pennsylvania frequently” (try LIFELONG

Weekly Check In- Some Breweries I’d Like to Visit

Much like hikes, books, and things to watch on Netflix, I can’t seem to keep up with all the breweries I’d like to experience. It doesn’t hurt that they’re popping up at rapid pace. There’s currently over 5,300 breweries operating in the United States. That’s insane. To give you some context, in 2012, just five

Weekly Check In: Some Chill Summer Reads

My brother and I went up to Lake Placid over the elongated holiday weekend.  On Monday we did a fourteen mile loop hike to Mount Colden.  That night, while fireworks went off in the distance, and the campsites around us blared music and drank beer, we were both firmly ensconced in our beds by approximately 7:30.

Weekly Check In: A Visit to Endless Brewing

  I’ve been wanting to visit the Endless Brewing up in Susquehanna County for some time now.  My brother and dad went a year ago and liked it, and though I’m reticent to fully trust Yelp reviews, this one got no badmouthing.  The problem was always that it’s in the absolute middle of nowhere.  It

Weekly Check-In: Why I Always Look Up the Menu In Advance

Does anyone else look up menus online before they go to eat? I do it chronically, and I’ve gotten some shit for it over the years.  I guess it takes away the spontaneity? I think if a restaurant didn’t want me to know their menu beforehand, then they wouldn’t publish it on the internet.  And

Weekly Check-In: SIC Memories, and Why Coldplay Made Me Cry

I never understood the massive vitriol people have for Coldplay. See here, or here, or here for examples.  I find them almost completely neutral music-wise, decent elevator music that I’d almost never seek out myself, but that I might sing along with if it’s on, and certainly wouldn’t scoff at.  I even really like their
