So, Alisa and I are planning to make some old-fashioned sloppy joes with turkey burger, minus the ’shrooms (as they are basically MOLD, people). This lead to the following exchange ’twixt her and I: Alisa: I really like that it has celery in it. Me: ::mildly befuddled look:: Alisa: I mean, it’s basically a Bloody […]
Oh man, oh man, oh man. Mt Airy has finally gotten Indian food! This news is competing with the birth of my daughter for coolest thing to happen this year.* Tiffin opened up a location along Emlen where the Hamlet Bistro used to be. A few nights ago we ordered up some standards: chicken tikka […]

I’ve been distracted from Current Config, so let’s call this a public service announcement to make up for it. 1) The Buzz Aldren at The Continental One word, people: Tang.

I just realized I haven’t mentioned this yet on Current Config: St. Bernardus Abt 12 is the best beer ever. From the moment I tried it on tap at the best Belgian beer emporium I know of in Philly, Monk’s Café, I was hooked. Just reading the description on the St Bernardus website makes my […]
