Don't miss A Christmas Carol at Civic Theatre.

It seems hard to believe that A Christmas Carol is in its 27th year of being directed at Civic Theatre in Allentown. The show has evolved over the years, most notably on the number of actors, from a mere 31 when it started in 1989 to over 100 in today’s production.

Don Henley brings classic rock to Musikfest.

Musikfest. Don Henley. Need I say more? The Eagles music mastermind put on one incredible show to what seemed to be a sold-out crowd Wednesday night at the Sands Steel Stage at Musikfest in Bethlehem.

It was a balmy 90-plus degrees, with humidity making it feel like it was close to 100, but that didn’t stop the fans from moving to the music of this nearly 70-year old performer. Henley played for nearly two and a half hours adorned with jeans, a rolled up button down shirt, and his iconic vest.

Get your engines ready!

Pocono Raceway revved up the fans with tons of action at the Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 NASCAR Race held June 3 – 5, 2016. I didn’t make it to the Friday events, but there was plenty going on during that gorgeous day at the Tricky Triangle. Friday was practice for the Sprint Cup and xfinity Series, along with qualifying for the ARCA race that was held close to 6 p.m. After the race, the infield came alive with a block party bar and live music going till midnight.

If you are looking for a NASCAR experience but don’t want to deal with the crowds and the traffic, then you must get to a Saturday event. The day was jam packed with gates opening at 8 a.m. Qualifying for the big Sunday race started at 9:15 a.m., followed by practice for the Sprint Cup Series at 11:30 a.m.

It's PEEPS® season!

PEEPS®. You know, those marshmallow sugary confections that adorn Easter baskets, and have a shape for every holiday? I think year round, PEEPS® are the topic of some heated discussions. From how you eat them (fresh, stale, frozen, or melted), to which color tastes best (Really? Don’t they all taste the same?), to what shape people like the most (Fact: yellow chicks followed by yellow bunnies).

So each year I do a little surfing on the world wide webs to find out exactly what people are always making such a fuss about. Here’s what I dug up for 2016:

Treat your special someone to a romantic dinner.

It’s February. Some people look at this month as the dead of a cold winter, yet some see it as one of the hottest months of the year when it comes to their love life. In my mind it’s both, but what keeps me from cabin fever is the opportunity for a little extra romance by doing something special with the one I love.

Get ready for a winter filled with fun!

This is a page for Old Man Winter. Paging Old Man Winter.

If you’re like me, you love the change of seasons. This year it seems we’ve been stuck in fall mode in Lehigh Valley … until now that is! The temps have finally dropped to where there is a chance for the natural stuff to fall from the sky, even though that still hasn’t happened yet besides the few flurries I am staring at out my window at the present time. Luckily, for those of us that are winter enthusiasts, we’ve got two great resorts who have the capabilities to make a ton of the white stuff without the Snow God coming into play.

It's Cookie Time!

The holiday season is upon us. Driving around Lehigh Valley has sights of Christmas trees on car roofs, lights being strung on the outside of houses, and candles glowing in the windows. Soon the house will be smelling of pine and of course, my favorite holiday treat, cookies!

There’s the classics; chocolate chip, peanut butter, and sugar cookies, but, that is so boring. I wanted to try some new recipes this holiday season…

Who's up for a Martini at lunch?

In honor of my birthday, I think I’d like to bring back the work lunch cocktail … today! After a stressful few morning hours in the office, don’t you think just one little cocktail would make for a much better afternoon with your coworkers? After all, Mad Men did it on a regular basis, didn’t they?

Don’t get me wrong, I understand that alcohol is not the answer to relieve stress, and by all means, I am not an alcoholic. But, for some people it brings out the best thinking cap and it allows them to speak freely and feel relaxed.

Here Come The Holidays

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, sometimes it’s easy to forget about what they really are all about. For me, the holidays have always been about my family gathering together, eating to our heart’s content, and sharing stories about our daily lives.

Each year I do try to carve out some time during the lead up to the big event’s and spend it with my immediate family by creating experiences at some of the local attractions.
