Two Reviews from The Market at Liberty Place (Kennett Square, PA)

The Market at Liberty Place reminded me of a scaled-down version of New Hope’s Ferry Market. You walk into an industrial-like setting and are met with a circular concourse of food stands (both savory and for dessert), a tasting stand for a winery, and plenty of tables and chairs. The selection was not quite as…

Tonight at Rumson’s Oceanic Free Library, I will be giving a talk on Bootlegging on the Jersey Shore. This was a shot of some of my research.

Restaurant Review: Whistling Willie’s (Cold Spring, NY)

Rare is it to have an experience that begins with such promise and ends with such anger. We did some restaurant research before our trip to Cold Spring aboard the Seastreak. After browsing at one menu after another online, we decided that based on price and selection, Whistling Willie’s seemed our best bet in this…

Restaurant Review: The Huddle (Sleepy Hollow, NY)

Our third bar visit of the day was thankfully the best one. Third time’s a charm, as they say. Since the first two were so disastrous, we debated even giving this place a chance at all. The goal was to come here for late night drinks and maybe a snack, before heading to a 24-hour…

Photo of the Day: July 1, 2018

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…

A Quick Stop at Gaslight

This is not a review, just a quick piece to say that I have finally been to Gaslight in Atlantic Highlands. They have been around since 2014 and I have worked in town since 2011. I have always heard this was an ultra-hipster spot. The restaurant actually bears no name, simply a literal gaslight in…

Restaurant Review: Fran’s Pub (New Hope, PA)

This was the first dining experience I deemed so terrible that I would not even put the pics of what my friend and I ate on my food-based¬†Instagram. I didn’t want anyone to know that in a town full of decent and exciting restaurants, we happened upon the resounding dud known as Fran’s Pub. If…
