Restaurant Review: John and Peter’s Place (New Hope, PA)

I feel like my words will be futile in adequately describing my first experience at John and Peter’s in New Hope. I have been coming to this town since I was a child. I cannot tell you how many times I walked past the tiny, bright blue building and wondered what was inside. After a…

Food Pics from my Grandma’s 90th Birthday Dinner

My grandma’s 90th birthday was the other day and we ironically took her to Nonna’s (which means “grandma” in Italian) in Englishtown. This is a restaurant which has cranked out quality meals and cocktails without fail every single time I have gone there. Their prices may be on the higher side but the portions are…

Restaurant Review: Outback Steakhouse (Middletown, NJ)

I rarely write about chain restaurants on this blog unless the experience is ultra positive (or negative). I had been sitting on a $100 gift card to Outback Steakhouse for the last six months and finally used it a couple of weeks ago. It must have been my first time there since I was a…

Photo of the Day: August 31, 2018

On this last day of August, I think back to an absolutely perfect picnic I had on Sandy Hook just last week. Justin and I walked out to the tip of the hook and noticed a piece of a broken dock that had floated in and rested perfectly on the sand. We returned the next…

Rum Buckets and Wings at Miami Club (Keansburg, NJ)

After a few hours at Runaway Rapids, Justin and I were thirsty‚Ķand a little bit hungry. The smell of grilled meats had lured us across the street to the amusement park. We had grabbed a beer one night at a place called Miami Club a few weeks earlier. On this afternoon, we ended up stopping…

Restaurant Review: Tavern at the Sun Inn (Bethlehem, PA)

When Justin and I arrived on a Monday and walked around Bethlehem, we were immediately drawn to the Sun Inn. The building was erected in 1758 and currently serves as a full service restaurant, distillery, and museum. My being a history lover made this a must-visit. However, we had to wait until Wednesday (our last…

Restaurant Review: Ripper’s Pub (Bethlehem, PA)

Bethlehem is loaded with many fine restaurants. That much is apparent. But as Justin and I walked around town (this being my first-ever visit), nothing spoke to us. We finally found one place that we wanted to try only to realize a few moments later that it was closed. It was a Monday after all….

Restaurant Review: Sofrito Gastropub (Reading, PA)

I had never realized the sheer numbers the Hispanic population represents in Reading. There was one restaurant after another. It was hard to decide which one to check out. Being in town on a Sunday helped, as many of the dining establishments we had our eye on were closed. We felt like something cultural, and…

Restaurant Review: Procopio’s (Denver, PA)

We started our Pennsylvania road trip through Adamstown, Kutztown, and Bethlehem with a stop for some antiquing in the “Antique Capital of the USA”. On the way there, we noticed a little Italian restaurant called Procopio’s on the side of the road. Justin and I were both hungry but just not digging diner food. It…

Photo of the Day: July 17, 2018

A beer-tasting at Free Will Brewing Co. which has a place in Peddler’s Village. Justin and I shared this, and to be quite honest, did not enjoy a single one. They were way too bitter (and only one was an IPA).
