I got to celebrate the holiday season by getting up to Mount Hope Mansion which is located in New Hope, Pennsylvania for their annual Holiday Dinner Theater.

Fine Crust Pizza at Posto

I love my neighborhood. It has so many great places to eat. But I just found another gem at 18th Street and 2nd Avenue called Posto Thin Crust Pizza. Posto is a no frills kind of place and was founded by Antonio Gomez with friend and business partner Jonathan Tweedy. The restaurant quickly grew a…

New York City is Back

I just attended live and in person the 2021 Event Planner Expo which was held at the Metropolitan Pavilion located at 125 West 18th Street. It felt kind of surreal to be in this large space with a lot of people given what New York City went through and is still going through due to…

Williamsport and Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon

It was time to head out of Dodge this past weekend and so I took an adventure to Williamsport, Pennsylvania and then headed to Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.
