Restaurant Review #244: Shamrock Cafe (Lancaster, PA)

Justin and I have an affinity for dive bars, especially when traveling. We prefer them to “scenes”, no matter how gritty or grimy they may be. The less chances we have of running into other millennials, the more we are inclined to try it. While exploring the city, I did a quick Google search for…

Photo of the Day: April 11, 2019

I had Duke Bourbon a few years ago and thought it was great, and not because I’m a fan of its namesake. I just had to get a picture of this set-up. Okay, I also had my picture taken with “him” as well. Saving that for another time!

This style wine is different from others I’ve had because it is not cream, nor is it a liqueur. I once had something called ChocoWine which was cream-based liked Bailey’s, only using wine instead of whiskey. However, it was long on chocolate and short on wine. It could have been anything they used. However, this…

Red Bank’s The Globe is Worth Being Written About Twice

I posted my first review of The Globe two years ago. I had stopped in for a quick lunch and drink with a friend and was inspired to give them a good rating. I also felt that I had to dispel the notion that this was a “dive bar”. It is not and probably never…

Restaurant Review #235: Vic’s Wayside Inn (Ronks, PA)

For years, I drove past Vic’s Wayside Inn thinking that from the outside it looked like a stereotypical locals only bar where everyone would turn around and look at you when walking in. Maybe even the music would stop too. As Justin and I entered, I still thought that would be the case. But I…

A Seastreak Voyage to Cold Spring, New York

After going with a friend herself last year, my mom wanted to gift Justin and I tickets aboard the Seastreak for their fall foliage cruise to Cold Spring, New York. The three of us took the journey this past weekend. It was my first time aboard the Seastreak, which departed from Highlands. I was impressed…

Restaurant Review #214: 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…

Restaurant Review #203: Miami Club (Keansburg, NJ)

After a few hours at Runaway Rapids, Justin and I were thirsty…and 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…

Enjoying a drink in the Beer Garden of the Bucks County Playhouse. It was a beautiful afternoon. I had a Maker’s Mark on the rocks, while Justin went with a delightfully refreshing Pineapple Hefeweizen.

Restaurant Review #196: Cheer’s American Bistro (Reading, PA)

This is going to be one of the only reviews I will ever post based solely on drinks. Normally, I don’t believe in that. There should be the consumption of at least a snack to properly assess a business. Well, yes and no. I’m not fan of hotel restaurants as you know, but something about…
