Restaurant Review: Nakayama Sushi (Hazlet, NJ)

I don’t usually write reviews based on takeout, but because Nakayama is an actual restaurant and my experiences there in two orders were good, I figured this could stand on its own. My coworker and I wanted a change from Sultan Palace after a couple of greasy, unappetizing meals in the last two months. This…

Travel Guide PA: Logan Inn (New Hope)

If there’s a historic and rumored-to-be-haunted hotel restaurant in a quaint river town, you can always count me in. Despite many years of visiting New Hope, I have managed to avoid its landmark: the Logan Inn. That all changed last week. My mom and I took a day trip out there in what would be…

Funnel Cake at Fright Fest

Normally, something like this would be reserved for my “Photo of the Day” series, but since that’s on break until November so I can concentrate on Halloween on my other blog, I’ll share it here. Last week, I went to Fright Fest at Six Flags for the first time. Actually (and here’s a confession) it…

Restaurant Review: Middletown Pancake House (Middletown, NJ)

I hadn’t been to the Middletown Pancake House since I was 13 or 14—so, a long time. It’s one of those places I drive past at least once a week without much thought. When we first moved to New Jersey when I was much younger, we were semi-regulars here. Some time later, that came to…

“Photo of the Day” on Break Until November

October is my busiest month of the year. I volunteer at a museum that is haunted, and we do events all month long. I also lecture on the subject of paranormal activity and hauntings at historic sites for Brookdale Community College. All of that and I try to watch and review as many horror movies…

So, How About Pumpkin Spice?

It’s that time of the year again. The air is getting crisp. The leaves are changing. Halloween is right around the corner. Oh, who am I kidding? Pumpkin Spice coffee was out at the end of August during a heat wave. People are divided on the subject. There are few who just like or tolerate…

Photo of the Day: October 1, 2017

It’s the first day of October! My favorite month! 31 days of watching horror movies and telling ghost stories. As a paranormal investigator who volunteers at a haunted museum and lectures at Brookdale Community College on local legends and hauntings, you could say this is my busiest month of the year. But I still make…

Restaurant Review: Le Peep (Edison, NJ)

The morning started innocently enough. I was on my way to run some errands and grab a bagel and coffee in Aberdeen when Will called and asked if I wanted to get breakfast at Le Peep. He had been raving about it for as long as I can remember. So, I made a U-turn and…

Photo of the Day: September 27, 2017

Hailey’s Harp in Metuchen is my favorite pub. It’s not just a watering hole, but a place that churns out quality eats. I’ve been there a bunch of times since my initial review and I have yet to have a bad meal. Featured here is the massive Sullivan’s Sampler which is a tour of Irish…
