Your St. Patrick’s Day Weekend Fun Guide

I’m officially convinced that people will find any excuse to get drunk, and that they feel like they need to. I have no idea why. Maybe as a good justification to get a baby-sitter? “Yeah, can you watch them on Sunday? It’s St. Patrick’s Day, after all. I’m going to get loaded.” I never did. [...]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide (and a Shamless, Shameless Plug)

We’re kinda slow this weekend and I’m kinda (classic undersell) busy, so we’re going to do this really quickly and we’ll just hit what people have sent me on Facebook. (Update: I just actually wrote it, and it’s not very short. Sorry. Or you’re welcome. Whatevs.) One shameless plug. I have no idea who or [...]

I think I say this concerning just about every holiday these days, but Halloween has become one of the biggest drinking holidays there is.

Your St. Paddy’s Day Weekend Fun Guide

I find St. Patrick’s Day fascinating. In Ireland, it’s a holy day. Not in the metaphorical sense like it is here, but in the literal sense. Like, go to church, have dinner with your family, that kind of thing. Here we’ve somehow morphed it into “get stinkin’ drunk like you don’t get drunk for the [...]

So Who Was That Lady?

As much as I try, I can’t watch everything. Oh, how I try. But luckily, I have my trusty readers to back me up and the good ol’ Internet to prove them right. So special thanks go out to one East Stroudsburg reader (not sure if he wants me throwing out his name, but thanks!) who [...]

Summer Concert Preview and The Office Shouts Out to the Poconos

If you missed The Office last night or if you don’t watch it, the Poconos got some Michael Scott face-time last night. Michael told the staffers he was in Mount Pocono on Tuesday at the orders of his new girlfriend, but only because she may have been cheating on a boyfriend with him. The Poconos discussion lasted [...]
