A Hungry Nine-Year-Old

“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.

Becky's Drive-In

We could write a book on all the daytime activities there are to do in Lehigh Valley. Well, we kinda did.

After all, riding the Talon roller coaster at Dorney Park wouldn’t be as much fun without the daylight allowing you to see for miles. Watching an IronPigs game without the lights on probably wouldn’t make for the best father/son bonding experience.

It may appear to most, that summer is over. There are no more Friday nights under the lights at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center, there will be no more baseball at Coca-Cola Park, school has started, Musikfest and the Great Allentown Fair are in the rear view mirror and the weather for the week is rather wet.

Ribbon Cutting at Haydenfilms Institute

Last night I was delighted to attend the official ribbon cutting ceremony at Haydenfilms Institute in Breinigsville. I sat down with Hayden a week or so ago at the suggestion of Frank Facchiano from the Chamber. In his words “we are of a kindred spirit”. Frank was right.

There are two things bigger than Hayden Craddolph (the guy is like 6’8”!)… his smile, and his enthusiasm for film making in Lehigh Valley. What sets his institute apart is the “focus on student and independent content rather than commercialization.” Ok, I stole that quote from their vision statement.
