Putt U

For the past five weeks I have been traveling along Route 309 a lot for business purposes. Each week I notice the sign at Putt U, in Center Valley, and it gets me excited: one side says something to the effect of "Opening April 4" and the other side reads "Enough of the snow". I totally agree and March 20th (the first day of spring) couldn't come soon enough! 

I was just at the Victory Golf Show down in Valley Forge the past three days, so golf is definitely on my mind – even miniature golf. Putt U's 36 holes just happen to be a great way for me to brush up on my putting skills. I can't think of a more inexpensive and fun way to spend with the family.

So we’re all tightening our financial belts these days, which for me means less dining out. I consider myself a foodie, so dining out is a way of life for me. While I don’t need to dine out at a nice restaurant every day, I would like to do it, say… once a week.

Well I think I can justify dining out next week since The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley is doing its first Restaurant Week promotion from February 22 – 26. There will be fixed prices – but limited menu options – for lunch and dinner at several places in the shopping complex.

I don’t know how you feel about your sibling, but my sister is my best friend. We do a ton of stuff together, but there is one in particular that I enjoy: The Morning Movies.

Every Sunday, we go the AMC movie theatre at the Tilghman Square Shopping Center. My mom has dubbed this outing “St. Cinema” because instead of being at church we’re at the movies.

Last week I decided to treat myself to a movie. While some people would never dream of going to the movies by themselves, I really don’t mind. I usually do it when no one else in my family wants to see the film that I want to see.

I have two favorite places to see a show, and they couldn’t be more different from each other if they tried.

This is the first in a series of three posts in which I detail my 2009 New Year’s resolutions, all of which revolve around experiencing more in Lehigh Valley.

Thanks to Netflix, I watch a lot of movies. On the flip side, I rarely go see a play. So my first New Year’s resolution is to see five plays performed in the Valley in 2009.

Ya know that game your parents made you play on vacation to pass the time in the car? The one where you keep track of different license plates you saw?  Well, this past Sunday we drove to The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley.  Since I was in the passenger seat, I had the chance to look around and noticed a Virginia plate, then a Michigan plate. Good, I thought…VISITORS!

Two are easy to remember, but after that I decided to play the game. Grabbing a business card from my purse, I started jotting them down. Here’s my tally…
