Your Poconos Easter Weekend Fun Guide

Doesn’t look like much is going on this weekend, one of the few weekends of the year I even say, “You know, I should probably slow down and maybe not go out.” It’s not exactly conducive to drinking and celebrating, ya know? That actually works out OK, I’m a little pressed for time anyway. But [...]

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 [...]

As always, if you have something to promote, send it in to me or send the PopRox Facebook page an invite. I’m going to try and do a special fun guide on Wednesday, Nov. 21, for the night before Thanksgiving. It’s always been one of my favorite bar nights of the year, so I want [...]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

Big weekend of local fun … Pocono Brewing Company is holding its now annual summer deck party, “Get Wet,” from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. tonight. Under the get wet heading comes wet T-shirt and homemade bikini contests, and I’m pretty sure I just sold a whole bunch of people on going. I don’t wanna [...]

Your Weekend Fun Guide, with a Quick Word from Someone That Will Never Be a Sponsor

Some very quick local links on the way but at Cinco de Mayo time I’m always reminded of one thing — my distaste and general aversion for Corona beer. I feel the same way about Corona as I do about Blue Moon. Why do I need a piece of fruit in my drink to make [...]

Your Weekend Fun Guide

Some local happenings this weekend before we hit the links. As always, when you want something Poconos-related listed here on Fridays, email me or send an invite to the PopRox Facebook page. We’re pretty video-heavy today, enjoy! So what exactly is a Bovine Social Club, you ask? It’s a “grassy, funky, punky, twangy, dancy, fancy [...]

The Weekend Fun Guide

Two things that really have been eating at me personally about the Penn State scandal separate from how sickening it is overall and how bad everyone feels for the victims: –My father-in-law and I don’t get to hang out much, but I always enjoy it when we do. So I was pretty happy when he [...]

Kinda low on local links this week, but here goes. As always, if you want to make sure your event gets mentioned here Friday, send the PopRox Facebook page an invite or email it in to me. Thanks to the snow last week, I’ve got good news. Halloween has been extended by a week! Maybe [...]

Chicken Wings and Beer … Perfect Together

Since we’re still keeping it all local on Fridays, it’s a good time to remind everyone about the ZZ Top tickets we have up for grabs. Two lawn seats to the Aug. 20 show to one lucky winner. The normal PopRox rules apply, but since I haven’t officially posted the rules yet, here they are: [...]

Finally, a Big News Day

Well it’s about time! There hasn’t been any good non-Charlie Sheen news around here in a while. We’re loaded today, right to it: The only news that could have been worse for the next Wolverine movie would be if Hugh Jackman got pinched for DUI then started popping middle fingers, shouting racial slurs at the officers and [...]
