With Mother’s Day just around the corner (Sunday, May 10 in case you’re a little behind), it’s time to start brainstorming ideas for the perfect gift. Rather than head to a big-box shop this Mother’s Day, treat mom to something local. We wouldn’t be who we are today without all the care, love, and hard work that our moms have put in over the years, so let’s all be sure to show our appreciation!Continue Reading

Each year, millions of Americans look forward to that magical day when they find out how much they will be getting back in a tax refund. And while some may get back more than others, everyone still has many options on where they’d like to spend it.
You can pay bills, pay off debt, save it, spend it, or invest it. There’s no single right answer for everyone as your financial situation will largely dictate what makes the most sense.Continue Reading

Sure, you’ve had plenty of Weyerbacher beers over the years.
There’s my favorite, the complexly flavored Merry Monks There’s Verboten, the 5.9% ABV, is a Belgian-style Pale Ale with an American twist. There’s the seasonally awesome Imperial Pumpkin Ale and… well, let’s just say that there are a ton of Weyerbacher beers.Continue Reading

Over the last couple of years leading into the Lenten season, I’ve written a few blogs on pizza (okay four to be exact, but who’s counting). These blogs have named my “Top 10,” some local legendary pizza places, and even a few obscure ones. Regardless of what my lists entailed, they always opened up a can of worms and some great social media debate.
Once even some great banter where a woman told me I was crazy as Domino’s had the best pizza in Lehigh Valley. Nothing against the Domino’s franchise, but come on, really?Continue Reading

“Mom, Dad, I’m hungry.” This phrase is common place in our household, especially with a son that seems to always have his head in the refrigerator. If your house is like ours, we are often in need of a cooking break (more my wife than me) so the next question is, where should we go?” Our son, Noah, is as picky as they come when it comes to eating out.
So, I interviewed one hungry nine-year-old and here are his recommendations. I had to take some liberties and make some modifications, but all-in-all, this is his list. I hope it helps those in need with finding some new, and perhaps some old, eating establishments that are definitely kid-friendly.Continue Reading

A New Year is upon us and it’s time to look forward to Lehigh Valley fun in the upcoming year.
January, the beginning of the calendar year, isn’t always about beginnings as it is usually the middle of winter and a great time to hit the slopes on one or both ski areas in Lehigh Valley: Bear Creek and Blue Mountain.Continue Reading
