I’m not a fan of dark beer (and did not really enjoy this one) but there could not be a more perfect bottle in the house for a screening of Nosferatu we had at the museum with live music. The bottle now rests as a collectible on my bar.

The Recipe Book: Greg’s Pumpkin Pie Martini

I was searching for a recipe for a good pumpkin spice martini. One by one, most of the recipes called for multiple cream liquors and even flavored vodkas.

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

Next to October, July is always an incredibly busy month for me because of the summer camps and teaching I do. Originally, I was going to put “Photo of the Day” on pause, but I’ve had a change of heart and will continue to try to get new images up every day. Cheers and enjoy…
