Your Super Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

I might as well say it one more time — I can’t stand the Super Bowl. I hate it in the way that drinkers hate New Year’s, because it’s amateur hour. People who spend the fall and winter bitching about people watching too much football are now sitting next to you with a prop sheet […]

JJ Abrams: Right or Wrong?

Stay safe out on those roads everyone! UPDATE, 4 p.m.: The Pocono Beer Club has postponed its meeting at Pocono Brewing Company to next Monday. So yeah, it’s slick out there. The problem with this blog is that I’ve got a pretty good groove going, and the end of the week is taken up. Thursdays […]

At Least Now I Won’t Have to Type the Show’s Full Name Anymore

Stay indoors and enjoy the links: Dammit. It’s not like the writing wasn’t on the wall for Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, but it was nice to have hope when the ABC bosses backed the show a couple weeks ago at the winter press tour. Now, James Van Der Beek tweeted this … […]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

You know the drill: Normally when I write this every week, I feel old. I still love going to bars and checking out bands, but I’m usually either 1. The oldest one there or 2. Just feel like the oldest one there. Apparently 37 is a weird age, too old to hang out with the […]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide and the Best of 2012 TV

Ho hum, I guess we’re all partied out heading into the weekend, huh? I’ve been looking for a place to squeeze in my top 10 TV shows of the year, and this seems like a good place to do it before we get swallowed into Oscar nominations next week (they’re on Thursday). A couple things […]

Your End of the World Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

If you read the paper over the weekend, you’ll see why I only have a couple minutes to bang out this holiday edition of the Fun Guide. But we’re getting back to a big one next Friday, a special edition for New Year’s Eve because no one really waits until NYE to finalize their plans. […]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

I didn’t do my normal preview of the Sunday column because of the overlap with the Golden Globes announcements and my sheer displeasure with the lack of a Mad Men nomination. If I get some time tomorrow, I may post it. It’s a Tom Cruise column, if you’re curious. You’re probably not. Also, anyone who […]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

As always, if you want your Poconos event posted here on Fridays, email me the info or send me a Facebook invite: I finally got some clarification on the whole “Venues” and “Whispers” debate. Whispers was the told name of the bar at the Quality Inn in Stroudsburg, it closed, and when it opened again […]
