Ax Throwing in Philly

Before we start, I need to get something out of the way. Last week I told you I was going to check out Urban Axes in Philly. Last week I said I had a feeling I’d be pretty good. I was not.  I was the 2nd worst one in our group of ten. Moving on.

Weekly Check In: A Weekend Full of Weapons

It’s my friend Eric’s bachelor party this weekend.  I’ve been very excited about it ever since plans for what it was going to entail have been formalized. Eric is one of my more docile friends, so I was a bit surprised to see how aggressive the weekend was going to be. We’re going ax throwing

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

The Museum of the American Revolution

You know what I love? Being able to write that something met/exceeded my expectations, which is what happened when I visited the Museum of the American Revolution this past weekend. What is the Museum of the American Revolution you ask? Well, almost exactly what it sounds like. Philadelphia’s newest museum explores the events leading up

Broad Street Running

I have a well-documented history of not loving to run.  By all accounts I should like it.  I actively enjoy going to the gym and exercising. It makes me feel good. Two of my favorite hobbies are cross-country skiing, and hiking, both cardiovascular workouts that you can make very taxing.  However, I’ve always viewed running

Day Trips from Philly

Occasionally I forget that this is a Pennsylvania-centric blog. I usually catch myself when something like 8 posts in a row aren’t celebrating the Keystone State in any way. Now, in my own defense, when I created this very Pennsylvania-centric blog, I purported to not only feature my home state, but easy trips to take

How to Complete a Tri-State (or larger) Bar Crawl

I generally don’t do much for Valentine’s Day, so don’t have a ton of Valentine’s Day memories, good or bad, like you would with Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Halloween.  To the chagrin of my mother, I’m perennially single, and so typically don’t really have the need to really even celebrate. I also have a healthy dose

Exploring Fishtown

I’m great at planning things. Sometimes I struggle with follow through. Sometimes that’s not a bad thing though. I spent this past weekend in Philadelphia.  I was planning on going to a Frank Turner show at The Fillmore on Friday night, then meet my college roommate, who lives out in Conshohocken Saturday to attend the

The Best Things I Ate in 2016

I’ve noted a few times this year how my travel style/weekend activities has changed a bit as I get older.  I used to not care about where I stayed, and while I still very often just use a room as a place to crash, I do enjoy more and more finding interesting places to stay.

My PA Weekend Fun 2017 Checklist

I used to begin every year with a list of travel/weekend fun related New Year’s Resolutions, and then end the subsequent year going over each one to see if it was a success or a failure. This was stupid for a couple of reasons.  I almost always had too lofty of expectations, and realistically was setting
