Introducing The Cycle-Pub


Category : Beer, Food News, Miscellaneous, National

Historically, biking and drinking beer is a bad idea. But imbibing brews andpedaling while someone else steers? That’s a stroke of two-wheeled brilliance. Actually, make that four wheels.

Recently, Bend, Oregon, featured the debut of the Cycle Pub, a trolley car–shaped traveling bar that blends the city’s twin passions: cycling and craft beer. (The innovation is an American riff on Holland’s lush-friendly Bier Bike.) Up to 12 beer lovers belly up to the glossy wooden bar and pump their legs, while an additional three non-pedalers can plop down on a plush bench and sip brewskis served by a pal doubling as a bartender. (Cycle Pub employees are unable to dole out drinks.)

To cut down on the risk of crashes — and spilling your precious carbonated nectar — “we provide the driver, so riders can legally enjoy a local fine-crafted beer, glass of wine or cup of coffee en route,” founder James Watts told The Bulletin.

But forget caffeine. This a bicycle built for brews. Thanks to Cycle Pub, gaining– and losing — a beer belly has never been so much fun.


Arby’s Angus Three Cheese and Bacon Sandwich!


Category : Food News, National

I’ve seen commercials for this sandwich for the past week and I think today is the day I’m driving myself to Arby’s for it! I can’t eat the television so I guess I need to hop in my car and by 1…or 4 of these bad boys!  Arby’s is known for their roast beef sandwiches, and now, like other chains before them, they are jumping on the Angus beef bandwagon — that breed of cattle whose name has become associated with leaner, tastier, and higher-quality meat. This is good news for the carnivores out there, especially since the Angus beef is sliced and piled into a sandwich with bacon and three types of cheese. Continue Reading

Tasty-Cake Sliders? Yes Please!

Category : Food News, National, Pennsylvania, Philly

When Adsum chef/owner and self-proclaimed “Philly fat kid” Matt Levinheard local Philadelphia baker Tasty Baking Company — better known as Tastykake — was facing bankruptcy, he immediately began “screwing around” with his longtime favorite treat, the Peanut Butter Kandy Kake.

Realizing that the chocolate-enrobed, peanut butter-layered treat closely resembled a burger bun, he decided to create a dish that would raise awareness of Tasty’s dire situation. “The early versions were jacked up,” Levin admits, “but they progressively got better. The sour component and the spice needed to balance the sweet.”

Wine Pairing With Superbowl Foods


Category : Alcoholic, Drink Reviews, Food News, National, Wine

We found an interesting article this morning in regards to wine pairing withSuperbowl snacks. We figured…why not? Beer is the ‘king’ of game day drinks but not everyone wants all the carbs and calories.  The alternative is wine.

The best thing about these featured wines is that they are all no more than $15! If you’re heading to a  Superbowl party this weekend or to the Blogs4food fortress, you may want to bring a bottle of the good stuff to see how spot on these pairings really are!

Layered taco dip
This is a complex dish, with layers of guacamole, chopped lettuce and tomatoes, corn kernels and spicy-hot taco meat or refried beans. An equally complex wine to help you wash it all down is key. Ditch the Napa Cabs and try a something from a new, up-and-coming Cabernet Sauvignon region: Chile.
Our budget pick: Vina Aquitania 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, Valle del Maipo, Chile

Souper Bowl II – Lehigh Valley Soup Contest


Category : Bethlehem, Food News, Miscellaneous, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

The Souper Bowl II is January 29th! It WILL sell out in advance. Held 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, the Souper Bowl will feature area restaurants competing to see who can create the tastiest liquid lunch. We attended this last year and it was nothing short of amazing! Tons of vendors, and all had fantastic creations that you could sample until your heart (and stomach) were content!

The concept of  S.O.B.  is pretty basic: Buy a ticket, taste a variety of soups and vote for your favorites. Come hungry because there is a lot of tasty treats to indulge in!

Last year, 20 eateries competed in six different categories: cream, ethnic, chowder, meat, vegetarian and unique. Judges picked the best in each category and fans in attendance decided on the People’s Choice winner. Hampton Winds won the People’s Choice Award last year with its roasted butternut squash with apple sage ravioli and cardamom cream.

Some participating spots in 2010 included Blue Sky Cafe, Hampton Winds, Tally-Ho, Sagra Cooking and Yianni’s Taverna. The event will be hosted by radio station 100.7 WLEV’s own Mark Shepperd and The “Gourmet Guy” will be one of the judges! Continue Reading

Bethlehem Awards Restaurant Economic Development Grant

Category : Bethlehem, Food News, Pennsylvania, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

A big congrats to our good friends at MINT.  The Lombardo family came to the city of Bethlehem, PA in 1982 and since then they have been nothing short of a FANTASTIC addition to this amazing Christmas City. Below, is an article that posted in regards to a recent economic development grant they received from the City of Bethlehem  to make a positive dent in Bethlehem’s economic growth! Look for MINT to open later this year on West Broad Street in Bethlehem, PA. Congratulations!

“Liquor licenses aren’t easy to get. Especially in cities that are kinda overrun with bars already (See: Bethlehem, Pa). And, if you’re lucky enough to be able to get one, be ready to pay a king’s ransom in order to do so.

(Side note: Always wanted to use the phrase “a king’s ransom” in context and I did. 2011 resolution #1 is done!)

This is the reason you see a lot of new restaurants opening up and offering BYOB. Sure, it’s OK and all bringing in your wine like you’re going on a picnic, but if you really want to attract a crowd that has any sort of sophistication you need to have a wine list and some sweet martinis. Am I right?

Anyway, The owners of Stefano’s are opening up a bistro in the former Bank of America Building in West Bethlehem on Broad Street and they got the deal of a lifetime to serve you alcohol. (source)

After turning down two in 2005, city council on Tuesday approved a rare economic development liquor license for a new restaurant in West Bethlehem.

The two previous applications faced opposition from other restaurateurs in the Center City and South Side business districts, but Tuesday’s application to grant the license to a building at 1233 W. Broad St. received nothing but support.

Restaurateurs Stefano and Dominic Lombardo, who also own Stefano’s Restaurant on Linden Street, said the fiercely competitive market for liquor licenses in Lehigh County made it impossible for them to afford a traditional liquor license. Economic development licenses, which also need state approval, can only be granted once all reasonable means to obtain a traditional liquor license have been exhausted.

The Lombardos plan to renovate a former Bank of America building into a contemporary bistro called The Mint. The family had planned to spend $80,000 on a liquor license but found liquor licenses in Lehigh County were going for at least double that, said Jim Scants, a legislative aide to state Sen. Lisa Osceola, D-Northampton/Lehigh/Monroe, who represented the family before city council.

While Northampton County has 26 available liquor licenses, Lehigh County only has three, making them sell at a premium amount, Schantz said.

Economic development liquor licenses cost only $50,000, an amount some Bethlehem restaurateurs called unfair when the Sun Inn and Starters Riverport applied for them in 2005. Starters Riverport later got a transferred liquor license from Pen Argyl. Source

Sweet deal for them. I’m sure some people are going to bitch (See BYOB Main Street restaurants Olio and Mama Nina). But, you know what kids? Sometimes it takes a little bit of maneuvering to get what you want.

These guys are my heroes. ”
